“My ex always wanted to do Airbnb getaways, but she would always suggest places that are literally mansions, and she expected me to pay for it myself. I argued against some of these places because they were too damn expensive and she mentioned that her ex’s made almost as much as me and they would book these Airbnbs no problem.”

Zero Accountability

“Even when there was proof it was her fault, she would argue non-stop that it was someone else’s. She got in a car wreck and repeatedly called insurance to tell them it was the other person’s fault. They checked the computer in her car because it saved the speed she was going right before the wreck. It told them everything they needed to know, and she still denied it.”

Bullying

“It was like 7-8 years ago, but the gist is that I worked at a restaurant as a chef, a very high-end place. He was a server I had been flirting with. He had to train a kid on serving who had been a busser for a while. The kid was super sweet, really nervous, and excited. The kid removes the trash before his shift and gets a few raindrops on his gray button-down shirt. This guy yells at him about being unprofessional and unpresentable. He does a bad job training him, and I found the kid crying later.”

Bad Mouthing Their Friends

“She constantly complained/talked badly about all of the closest people in her life, parents, “best friends,” AA sponsor, and co-workers. Eventually, this ire started getting directed at our mutual friends and my friends. It was only a matter of time before that vitriol became directed at me, and sure enough, it did. She did not take the break up well, oh boy.”

Being Too Much of A Mommas Boy

“Found out the reason he rented the house next door to his parents was so his mom would make his meals, wash his clothes, etc. Had the audacity to say “let me call my mom” when I mentioned I was a little hungry.”

“Wanting to be close to your parents is fine. Wanting to be close to them so they cook for you is weird.”

Constant Sarcasm

“At first I was interested in her because she seemed really cool and funny, but then it became apparent that literally everything out of her mouth was “le cool and funny.” It was impossible to have a real conversation, even a casual one, instead it was constantly arrested development lines and sarcasm.”

Being Over Dramatic
