What Happens Next? : Part II



Dear Roxie,

I hope you will accept my sincerest of apologies.  I acted like an idiot.  I sincerely regret my stupidity.  I am sure you are a great girl or you wouldn't have two such good people as friends.  I also hope that you are one of those who believes that everyone deserves a second chance.

Sincerely,

Roy

  2. Good for him for being an adult instead of the high schooler he was acting like the other evening!

  3. Awwww... Roy redeemed himself. Maybe you guys will become friends and always have a good story to tell of how you met.

  4. Yeah! We'll chalk it up to whatever libation he was imbibing that evening...

  5. Maybe he isn't such a dink after all!

  6. Looks like you've been stuck in Roy's mind - ha! Glad he came to his senses...

  7. Hmmmm...is Roy single? That's something I've been wondering since your first post about this. In fact, I actually had the thought that perhaps Roy finds you attractive and, like most boys, decided to act like a jerk to get your attention.

    1. Yes, Roy is single and I don't think he actually meant for me to see the text.

      Here's what I'm guessing - I think he and Valerie are developing a thing - and he knew he needed to make nice if he didn't want me bad-mouthing him to her.

  8. Wow, that was a decent gesture and am with the group. He might be a decent guy who should never drink and text.

  9. Didn't you say you and her were LOOKING/PLAYING with her phone when he texted the text? DUH... He's not so bright, but I always do appreciate an appology when one is due. I say the flag has gone from Red to Pink.

  10. Yes, yes....what happens next?
    Whatever previously happened, I'm glad he made the gesture. It is a good lesson for all of us that people say and do stupid things all the time. He may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer (after all, you were looking at her phone - duh!!) but, most people are generally with a soul and a conscience. Plus, it solidifies the fact that the faux-pas was all about him and NOT you, my dear friend.

  11. I think he should have left it alone. But scores points for speaking the truth in his note "acted like an idiot", haha. Can't wait to hear your take.

  12. Possibly worth keeping on the acquaintance list. If your paths ever do cross again, he's at least made the apology and the two of you can start with a clean slate.

    However it turns out, I'm sure you'll make the right decision for you.

  13. Oh wait - he sent the flower too? (I'm a guy - a little slow on the uptake of these things)

    Hmmmmm . . .

  14. Well, it would seem Roy craves attention. Beyond that observation, be gracious & accept the apology. However, if you were the one deciding whether or not to date this guy: no way, Jose. When someone shows you who they are -- believe 'em.

    1. Ding! Ding! Ding! Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a winner. Lee would you come down and claim your prize?

      My thoughts exactly. He apologized six days later because there is something (not me) in it for him.

  15. LOL... Lee nailed it on the head! :) I like that "When someone shows you who they are - believe 'em." So true...

  16. I say screw Roy. What a jerk and a creep. Pretty plant but I'd probably have to give it away because I'd think of him every time I looked at it, and it wouldn't be with fond memories. I'm not good at forgiveness for unacceptable behavior. Obviously.

We'll try this for a while.
