I could fucking chew iron and spit nails.

So Daniel fills me in on what happened with Alvin the Asshole today (you can read all about it in his LiveJournal).

So, after having been out on a couple of dates, and without ever discussing the status of their relationship (i.e., are we dating exclusively), evidently Daniel is expected not to see and/or sleep with anyone else. When he does, Asshole decides he's been horribly, horribly wronged, 'cause, you know... well, actually, no, I don't know, but whatever. Of course, this comes after the first time (and notice the "first" there) he'd made plans with Daniel, then never showed or called. Daniel tows the line and says he won't be treated this way. Of course Asshole keeps telling him how much he cares for him and how much he feels for him and how much he thinks of him (except, evidently, to pick up a fucking phone) and how much he wants to spend time with him (except, evidently, to actually go spend time with him). So they take some time off, and when they finally make plans again (at Asshole's request), what happens? He stands him up AGAIN, no phone call! Yeah, I can feel the love - can't you?

Daniel agreed that maybe they could date - he and I even talked about the ramifications thereof. He was trying to be patient, wait for this guy to come around, but not get walked all over like a doormat. (And let's not even talk about Asshole abruptly signing off when they're chatting online, which pisses Daniel off and he fucking told him so, and it pisses me off, too.) So when he does it a second time, Daniel rightfully says that's it, it's over.

What does Asshole do? Plays the martyr. "Wah, I've been mistreated, my ex was a jerk to me, you don't understand me, I never meant to hurt you, BLAH BLAH BLAH FUCKING BLAH!" Daniel read me the e-mail over the phone and I was struck speechless I was so appalled and pissed and annoyed and flabbergasted and the sheer GALL of this ignorant fuck. All I want to do is get this fucker's e-mail address and shred his soul, or better yet, get his address and just punch his lights out. ARGH! STOP DOING THIS TO MY BEST FRIEND!

Daniel is evil, yes, but far more forgiving, and is trying to work with this sack of shit so he can learn something for the next time. I dunno, I'm thinking singing pigs here...

So on another note, what do you do when the creepy guy at Albertson's tries to flirt with you? Ew.

In response to Alvin, can you say totally "passive aggressive"?!? Classic symptoms. Daniel, "Dad" says run and don't look back!

JOhn.

You mean you haven't learned how to play dumb yet? :0) You act like your entire body is surrounded by teflon...all the flirt tactics in the world are sliding right off and never even impinging on your consciousness. He will give up eventually if he thinks you are agressively clueless. Give up or up the ante. This presupposes that you're capable of enduring being thought of as a little slow on the uptake socially.

If he ups the ante and gets more obvious (invites you on a date, makes a lewd comment, or (the ultimate rude flirt) touches anything), that's when you hand him his head. On a silver plate, of course. One must maintain standards...

Years of being pursued by men who are older than God and the Universe because I'm obviously the desperate fat guy who'll go home with anything has, after all, taught me something... :0D

Three problems:

- He's an employee at the store.
- I have a rainbow button on my bag I carry (that's how he first saw me).
- I sometimes need to shop there and he always, always comes up and tries to make conversation with me and while he does he just kind of... stares at me.

He's not an old troll, he's a youngish but thoroughly creepy guy. It's obvious he's pursuing me because he knows I'm gay. He's... weird.

Re:
'Sprix, just because you're gay doesn't mean you necessarily recognize flirting when you see it, right? Yes, you have a rainbow button. Yes, it's obvious that you're gay because of the rainbow button. That still doesn't mean you have to show you recognize his flirting...

No, he seems a little too... persistent to get the clue. Methinks I may have to mention my NEW BOYFRIEND loudly and often in his presence.

Ew. Creepy guy!
