There is nothing more worse in this life than someone who promises you the world and then just ignore you. It’s not like you ask for it or something. Let me share an incident. There are people around me that felt worried or sad just because I am not married. And these people have no connection to me – they are not my family – just plain acquaintances – people who you say hi and bye, you know that type. And there are those that you know because we-went-to-the same-school-together but yet never-sat-having-a-mean-together and, the biggest joke, is that they seem to think that they know you inside out. So what happens is, out-of-the-blue, I met one of these people and so the dialogue begins like this:
hey you, it’s been a long time…how are you?
I am great, fantastic actually.
so, how married or not? eh, you work where?
ehemm…some place (really don’t want to mention anything here, lest they come to my office to find me)
eh, you know our classmate got married finally….eh so you how ah? you very choosy is it? why like that?
At this point, I swear to God, I want to &*(%$## but no in my wonderful tone, I replied, ” oh, you know work and school has kept me busy…. and then she replied
eh you know my husband know so many people, let me check with him and maybe can intro some to you. ok ok don’t worry sure got someone.
I just smile.
Look I did not ask for it. But when these things happen, you sort of, inside your small heart, just wondering, if your ‘friend’s husband’ has gotten someone. And you waited and waited and waited. And then one day, you meet this person, oh what joy you just want to open your mouth and ask, and she just walk through you with a soft, ‘Hi’.
huh? what did just happen? Didn’t she go-out-of-the-way to help me? What’s the status?
Don’t ask me, till today, I am not sure what the answer is. And nowadays when I see her, I just walk through her and if she says Hi, have you eaten, I will just reply with a one-word yes or no or huh?
people should really keep their promises or don’t start if you can’t finish it.
happy that I said it.
Happy Monday everyone!
