However, B called me about 1 hour ago before the meeting time and asked where was the meeting place. She told me she was feeling very upset. The very moment I heard that voice I knew it - she broke up with her boyfriend again. She picked me up at the library near her house and we were set to meet A at the restaurant directly. However, on the way I have already texted A that I suspected B broke up with her boyfriend.
The funny yet awkward bit came when A wanted to eat the crabs badly and I simply found it darn awkward if both of us were busy peeling the crab meet off the shells and B cried while we were doing so. In the end, this was so. We ordered three crabs for two girls and a plate of fried noodles. When the fried noodles came, I encouraged B to eat some. When the crabs came, she was near to tears and broke down in the restaurant while we were thick in action - sucking the meat out of the crab and what not.
Come to think of it, it was really bad. But at the same time, I was really pretty bored with this whole saga thing again. Somewhere this time or some time in 2012, the same friend B broke up with her ex-boyfriend. I happened to send a hello message to her and she was literally sobbing and telling me the whole thing. Yes, now as I recalled she did that. She made me listen to her entire story about her and her boyfriend and I found it hard to connect because I haven't known her nor keep in touch with her for close to 10 years. 10 freaking long years. And why should I be obliged to listen to her the whole night?
This morning, she sent me a text again. I ignored it. Just like I ignored it the previous round, this time I totally don't bother. She had the same problem of "suffocating" her boyfriend just like she did it with her friends. Although the usual advice is to listen patiently, I just want to put it out there right the first time that I am no saint and I cannot waste my listening time on someone whom I don't really know that well.
Currently I am hoping to fade out her life very quickly. Very very quickly.
