Human beings are funny creatures. Our habits are sometimes funny, sometimes odd, and sometimes pathetic.
All those emotions ran through my head while I was over reading Man, Wife And Dog and read Charli’s blog post about some creepy dude trying to holla at her at the train station while she was on her way to work. What is it about a wedding ring that attracts people who probably wouldn’t give you a second glance if you didn’t have it on? I don’t get it.
I was in the beauty shop last Friday and happened upon a young lady who recognized me from Myron’s FB page. She, her (now) husband and Myron got to know each other because they used to hang out at the same happy hour. They got married the week after us. She was telling me how she and her husband went to a friend’s house party and how some woman was clearly trying to push up on her husband, to the point that when she walked by him, she deliberately ran her hands across his chest. Seriously?? WDDDA????
Almost every time my husband goes to the grocery store alone, he comes back with some funny story about some chick trying to hit on him. He never leaves home without his ring on, so I know they see it. Let’s not even get started about the dude that I used to date back in the day who inboxed me on FB to tell me after I got engaged, how he really messed up (his chance to be with me) and how he would probably end up as the old dude in the club because he just keeps passing up opportunities with some good women. Uh, yeah. In the words of that lyrical genius Silkk The Shocker: it ain’t my fault.
When I was a single chick, the only thing a married man could have done for me is introduce me to a single one. Who wants that kind of drama in their lives by going after a married man or even a man that’s in a committed relationship??? I wasn’t trying to end up on an episode of Snapped behind some man’s wife or girlfriend!
Unfortunately for some, they always tend to want what someone else has.
I guess that’s why gluttony is one of the seven deadly sins.
