Well basically, it went down like this

This was just emailed to me, I find it so absolutely fucking appropriate to this post, I thought I would share it with you:

VIRGO – The One that Waits (I’m the Virgo*)

Dominant in relationships. Someone loves them right now. Always wants the last word. Caring. Smart. Loud. Loyal. Easy to talk to. Everything you ever wanted. Easy to please. A pushover. Loves to gamble and take chances.  Needs to have the last say in everything. They think they know everything and usually do.  Respectful to others but you will quickly lose their respect if you do something untrustworthy towards them and never regain respect.  They do not forgive and they never forget.


You wanted to know what UmFriend is like? Okay fine, he’s like this:
  1. His eyes are the first thing you notice about him.  They’re big, blue & enchanting
  2. He is the perfect height for most girls, not too short but not too tall
  3. He is ambitious, in control of himself & aspires to be better daily
  4. Although he has a wicked sense of humour, he has the ability to make me CAN myself laughing
  5. He spells better than I do, mostly.
  6. We’ve been in and out of eachothers lives for about 8 years now.
  7. He was originally my manager and resigned so that he could date the girl staff members. No bullshit.
  8. He’s a charmer.  This could also be labelled a player. Never a good thing. Must remember to stay away from players.
  9. Due to “being effected by crime” he thinks this gives him a right to be racist. Even to Glady’s – Cath’s & my other mother at home. This does not sit well with me. At all.

Last week was fantastic, I was given attention, complimented daily, visited for coffee at work, cooked dinner (which I didn’t ever end up eating, incidentally) taken to a movie…

And then he remembered that he was letting the male team down by forgetting to be an asshole.  On Friday I was stood up.  On Saturday I received an sms that pissed me off, it offended me more actually, but more importantly (and you guys are going to love this one) he’s also slightly married. Yes, thats right. Married.** 

So, needless to say – UmFriend is totally out of the picture.  It was fun while it lasted, but nothing special enough to fight for or work on.  Jaded? Maybe. Cynical?  Possibly. Scorned? Absolutely.  And you know what they say about women scorned…

In random asides:  I’m the 4th loudest Twit in South Africa.  Wowser, who woulda thunk it.

* Well, half a virgo.  I’m also half a Leo.  Born on the 23rd of any month automagically makes me ‘on the cusp’.  Sounds like ‘up the duff’, if you ask me…

    Fuck yes! Bye droolface! you know so well how i feel about this !


    You’re worth more.

  2. shebee says:

    * No, I thought he was “divorced” already. Turns out he’s not so much divorced as he is ’seperated temporarily’.

    Cath – I know. x
    Leez – See why I wouldn’t tell you yesterday? Shock and awe, baby**.

    ** Aww that line makes me miss Bridget.

  3. angel says:

    so he’s one of those who seperate to play the field and then go back to wifey…
    that was a suprise… but good for you shebeeliciousness! i’m proud!

  4. shebee says:

    Angel – is this a common thing? Do guys actually do that, leave and go back and what not? What assholes. Reason #879 84746 why I’m never getting married.

    And har har. I’m not that loud.

  5. Cath says:

    oh, and by the way, can i just say…

    now that droolface is gone and out the window, that he had a weird surname, something that could also be an career…

    and you know how i feel about people who’s surnames could also be an career…

  6. shebee says:

    Aims – awww, thanks babe – I lub you too.

    Caff – Yes. It is a deal. No more career surnames. Evar.

    PS: “an” career? is that intentional?

  7. justBcoz says:

    As someone who’s been on the other side of this married fence, let me just say that I am stoked he’s out the picture. You do NOT need to be involved with ANY A-hole who can do that to his wife. Grrrrr … scorned? oh yeah.

  8. shebee says:

    JBC – bleh. Lets go light some pitchforks and burn them horrible things.

    Gluggie – Yes. Go check his credit record or summat. He deserves a fuck around, if anything 😛

    Mullet – Dude. Don’t make me hurt you.

  9. Stef says:

    wow, fucktard… it makes so much sense now why my ex’s new girlfriend wanted our divorce papers…. mwhahahahahahahahaha
    he’s still a fucktard… my ex and this um friend… 🙂
    while i was reading the top bit of your post i was thinking… sheebs why are you still with this guy???
    still… sorry… it always sucks doesn’t matter what

  10. MsBehavn says:

    Not a nice thing to happen, Sheena. I can never understand why people can’t just be honest. It’s so much easier to deal with their shit when you’re not the last to know about it!

  11. expensivemistakescheapthrills says:

    a slight case of the marriage needs to be dealt with through a not-so-slight kick in the balls.

  12. shebee says:

    Spence – Helloooo dahling 🙂 I like your new blog. Would you just keep bloody still for a while now?

    Exmi – Agreed. WHole heartedly.

  13. jjza says:

    Darned awful men out there letting down the mmmm maintaining the lousy reputation of the team. . . . time to petition for a breakaway faction and have two teams . . .

    Sad when the first step in the find-new-um-friend process needs to be “can I have your ID number to check your marital status on the home affairs website”

  14. shebee says:

    JJ – dude. I don’t believe in Nice Men anymore. Honestly. And if they do exist, they’re taken, gay or dead.

    I would like to be proven wrong. Really, I would.

  15. shebee says:

    Spence – I’m sending you an email as we “speak”.

    Mom – are you a regular now? Does that mean I have to stop speaking about sex and things?

  16. SwissTwist says:

    Sheebs, sorry to hear he turned into even more of an asshole. At least you got out before you got in too deep *hugs*

    I love your last comment here though!!! Hello Mommy-Shebee!
