Mr. Potato Head

To condense a super long story into a manageable blog post, I have left out many minute details of this story.

To start where I last left off, my friend T was in Puerto Rico with B, (who I have un-affectionately named Potato Head for his uncanny likeness to the children's toy), where she sent me a text message stating that this relationship will not work out. Can't say I didn't warn her. But I digress.

It seems that while in Puerto Rico, T found out that Potato Head is a pathological liar. He lied about pretty much everything; from stupid lies that he doesn't smoke, to more serious lies about his financial situation. She found out there that he filed for bankruptcy TWICE! He is only 32.

Since she has been back, she has continued to see him, even though she found out all about his dishonesty. She still feels that she is going to marry him. I've called her out on his behavior and she told me that I know too much about him and that she cannot keep up the facade to me, and would I not say anything to anyone about what she discovered on vacation. She can't take the heat. I told her that I will not support her during this time with him, but when she finally breaks it off, I will be there for her 100%. She needs some tough love.

So we haven't spoken for a few weeks. She called me on Friday saying that she hadn't gotten her period yet, and that she wanted me to go with her to buy a pregnancy test. It killed me, but I declined. I told her to call Potato Head and have him help her. She told me that she tried to call him, but he was avoiding her calls for some reason. Hmm, I wonder why? Is because he is a total lying liar who lies? Yes, that and a douchebag to boot.

Anyway, I still didn't go with her, even though I was freaking out for her. She called me a few hours later and told me that the tests were negative. The next day she sent me a text message saying that she got her period. Thank God!

Note to Potato Head: You are not that good looking to be pulling this mess, and at 32 years old you should also be ashamed of yourself.

P.S.: In the text message, T told me that she was waiting for him to come over to bring food, and "take care of her". Jigga what? The same dud (yes, it is a typo, but fits perfectly), that refused to take your calls when you were freaking out about maybe, possibly being PREGS is coming to take care of you??!?!?!?!? WTF???

And this people is why I scheduled a therapy appointment for MYSELF tonight.

Ah yes, the joys of dating. When I was dating losers #1-100, I could have certainly used a friend like you. All my friends were too wishy-washy to tell me the truth about my situation as they saw it. You're doing the right thing, even though it sucks to watch.

OH man, T is a hot mess. THe bright side of this rainbow is that you are going to therapy so I don't see you on the 6 o'clock news about a killing a crazy girl in love with a Mr. Potato Head.

I want to say she will eventually come around but the 2 1/2 years I known her, she has only gotten worse.

Sorry girl, stay strong and you know I am always here to gossip, I mean listen ;)

She must be seeing my ex-husband. Perfect match.

Tell that girl to RUN THE OTHER WAY!!! That made me sick to my stomach to read those things you posted. The whole part about lying about his life reminded me of my ex! SCARY!!! Try to get her to realize she deserves someone that won't lie to her, b/c it will NEVER CHANGE!!!
