Today’s SIDT email is not “Should I?” but “HOW should I?”
Dave G. thinks it’s totally appropriate to break up with someone VIA FACETIME.
He theorizes that people generally say a break up should happen face to face- and with facetime, skype, chat roulette.. technically that’s happening. No one ever says you have to end a relationship in person.
(Okay, maybe not chat roulette.. that’s mostly just naked men)
While I sort of see his point, I say no. That’s no better than a phone call.
If a girl can’t extend her hand and slap the *#&@ out of you (situational hazard), you’re not doing it right.. OR ARE YOU?!
What do you think? Acceptable form of break up OR NOT?
For some reason, I can’t stop thinking about Office Space on this one.
Joanna: So you’re stealing?
Peter Gibbons: Ah no, you don’t understand. It’s very complicated. It’s uh it’s aggregate, so I’m talking about fractions of a penny here. And over time they add up to a lot.
Joanna: Oh okay. So you’re gonna be making a lot of money, right?
Peter Gibbons: Yeah.
Joanna: Right. It’s not yours?
Peter Gibbons: Well it becomes ours.
Joanna: How is that not stealing?
Peter Gibbons: [pauses] I don’t think I’m explaining this very well.
Peter Gibbons: Um… the 7-11. You take a penny from the tray, right?
Joanna: From the cripple children?
Peter Gibbons: No that’s the jar. I’m talking about the tray. You know the pennies that are for everybody?
Joanna: Oh for everybody. Okay.
Peter Gibbons: Well those are whole pennies, right? I’m just talking about fractions of a penny here. But we do it from a much bigger tray and we do it a couple a million times.
HAHA. I would def. rather go with sexual harassment. That’s pretty subjective. Stealing however, that’s pretttty cut and dry.
What about you?!
Today’s SIDT actually warrants bringing back the a$$hole tag. I am filing this in the SIDT Hall of Shame, so one day I can look back at a crappy relationship and think, well, at least I didn’t date THAT guy.
In worst boyfriend EVER news, some guy pretended to DIE in order to show his girlfriend how much he meant to her.
No really, here’s the story:
Alexey Bykov wanted to prove to his girlfriend how important he was to her. How romantic, right? So he contracted a stuntman, makeup artist, screenwriter and director to stage a fake car crash just so his girlfriend could watch him die. Only, of course, Bykov, 30, from Onsk, Russia, wasn’t actually dead. He had staged the whole thing so that he could propose.
“When I arrived there were mangled cars everywhere, ambulances, smoke, and carnage,” said Irina, clearly traumatized from the realization that she’s dating the most manipulative f^$% ever. “Then when I saw Alexey covered in blood lying in the road a paramedic told me he was dead and I just broke down in tears.”
Then Alexey “miraculously” rose from the dead, and proposed to Irina. And for some stupid, stupid reason, she said yes.
“I wanted her to realize how empty her life would be without me and how life would have no meaning without me,” Bykov said. “I think it worked but I promise it’s the last time.” Right.
From Orange News
What kind of guy fakes his own death?! That’s just sick and arrogant. He never said anything about what life would be like without her.
I’d tell him to stay far, FAR away from me and get some serious therapy.
But I guess congrats on being hitched.. just hide the hatchets?
Is this a cultural thing? In any way would you find this sweet?
..I didn’t think so.
Prepare for a mind bomb my friends.
