Would anyone care to explain to me why people like to pull drama into their lives and make it into a soap opera? Does it make life more exciting for them? Does it make them feel like a better person? I think I have missed the point.
I've always been the type to avoid drama. Anyone who I felt tried to make my life more difficult than what it had to be, I would dismiss them. I remember when I was younger, I had some friends that were "Drama Queens" and they'd call me for advice and go on and on about who's having sex with who's sister and this big Jerry Springer show brought to me live.
At first, I would sympathize and offer advice and try to help them out, until it got to the point where I was like, "Look, you're being ridiculous." For instance, they would claim that they have to rethink their life and ponder their entire life because that had a simple crush on someone and felt they couldn't tell them.
I've had crushes before and I was sort of scared to tell the person, but I never let it affect other aspects of my life and never had to sit back and ponder about my entire life simply on this crush because I never let it expand into more than what it was.
And I'm sure the rest of you know what I am talking about when someone is a drama queen and gossip to you about everyone and all that icky stuff. It just gets frustrating. But this is what set me off:
My friend, we'll call him John, had been talking to this chic from Texas for over a year and he started to get feelings for her. I warned him about getting feelings for someone over the internet because things are not always as they seem. He let me chat with her on the phone one time and I told him that she sounded pretty ugly (I was judging based on her maturity, or immaturity level in this case), but then he showed me the picture she had sent him, and it was a hott chic. I usually give people the benefit of the doubt and didn't even think to mention "-G-, could that be a fake pic.?"
Well, eventually, "John" goes to Texas to see her, not a cheap trip. When he gets there, he's looking for someone that somewhat resembles the picture. No luck. Then he sees this obese chic, it's her. To make a long story short, he figures he went all that way, so he was going to get some, and boned her anyway.
Well, John was always telling me that she was a drama queen and he couldn't believe the Jerry Springer show they had goin' on down there. From the trailer park trash to "He's having sex with my wife" stuff. When John got back he was telling me "I bet in about a month, she's going to call and say 'I'm pregnant and it's yours'." And of course, she did.
John highly doubts she's pregnant and she's just trying to play games with him and if she is pregnant, he doesn't think it's even his. He thinks she's just playing her silly little games. And as I was reading the conversation they had, I felt myself getting irritated based on this chic's ignorance and fakeness. (Because if you read my bio, you'll see that ignorance, naiveness, and fakeness are three of my biggest pet-peeves.)
If you would like to read more about "John's" Texas Trip... Here's a link to the first part of the story... It's funny and worth the read... He's probably going to be sending it to a magazine to be published. Texas Trip
