FRIDAY, May 9, 2014, 9:30 PM:
I received a call from a woman named Shell, who is an associate of a man I met two months ago through a mutual friend. I was not on speaking terms with Shell at the time. I hesitated to get back to her. But, curiousity got the better of me, so I texted her.
"What's up?" I asked.
She texted me back to say that the gentleman in question took her to a complimentary room at the Inn of the Mountain Gods, a local casino 5-star hotel, where he slipped a date-rape drug into her glass of Crown Royal and proceeded to have his way with her.
I am grateful I chose to keep things on a "FRIENDS-ONLY " basis with the man, despite his becoming increasingly more angry with me because he wasn't getting any.
My reasons for delaying consumation of the relationship were well-founded: He is obsessed with a yet ANOTHER woman with whom - according to him - he had an ill-begotten, one-sided, very expensive, sexless relationship that cost him mega attorney fee and his freedom more than once, and, in my opinion, may cost him his life if he doesn't chill out.
In fact, his careless, selfish actions, free-floating anger and passive-aggressive behavior put me in harm's way. Be that as it may, the man had little concern for my safety and comfort.
I explained ALL of the above to Shell via text and received the following three texts from her in reply:
1/3. "U WERE WILLING TO TAKE A COUPLE HUNDRED TO GAMBLE AND PAY BILLS AND SET HIM UP WITH A WOMAN TO SCREW WHILE U GAMBLED. U TALK TO HIM BEHIND MY BACK." Shell
2/3 "...HE ASKED U TO STAY AT THE [HOTEL] ROOM. U DIDNT WANT TO, HE SAID. SO U ASKED SOMEONE ELSE TO DO HIM. THATS WHY U TOLD ME, "F. HIM SND HIS MONEY." Shell
3/3 "....U HAD THAT PLAN AND IT BACKFIRED AND IM DONE TALKING." Shell
Do people not have discernment of their own perceptions?
During the short time I've know her, Shell has asked for my help and I helped her. Shell has asked me for rides. I drove her. Shell has wanted explanations. I explained to her.
Still, not only did Shell deliver Bad News with RELISH, she delivered a crock of shit and a pack of lies, dug into the dirt and wallowed in it before kicking it in my face!
I received no more text from her until the following evening, wherein she edited her script, rewrote history, plead the 5th and denied ALL, but NOT before sharing ALL with HIM.
FYI. I did not say anything about setting him up to get laid so I can pay bills and gamble to HER. Rather, I said something to that effect to an ex-would-be topless dancer via text during a conversation we shared a few weeks ago.
My remark was tongue in cheek and taken out of context. I ended the conversation with the qualifier, "I never did anything like that in my entire life and I don't intend to start now."
As a matter of course, the qualifier was omitted.
The original phrase I sent via SMS reads like this:
Shell read it this way:
FACT: I hit the letter "S" by accident, and created a TYPO. I meant to tap the letter "A", which changes the phrase to read:
Duuuuuuuuh! O. I. C...
Prior to the charade, I told him the same and added that I could not be bought.
During, was bought - he bought the bullshit - crook, line and stinker.
Following, I forwarded him the text messages I received from Shell - and was met with silence.
I contacted Shell and the ex-would-be topless dancer and was met with more silence.
It seems silence is the way to go - IF you are a perp...
