omg so I'm sitting on the bus and a girl gets in and sits down behind me. she's on her cellphone obviously talking to some guy. She's asking when they're getting back together, and when he's going to be done with the girl he's seeing now. She asks if he's using protection with the woman he's seeing now, and he asks why or something I guess because she's like "because I don't want you having kids with anyone but me!" and then she's saying "so she has an IUD? that's good." and then she's offering to buy him condoms and making plans to meet up and it was just the saddest fucking thing I've witnessed in a long time.
I wanted to turn around and tell her... something. like "run" or "there's no way this ends well for you" because I've been that dumbfuck girl begging for scraps from some asshole guy, and I know there's no happy ending there, even if she gets him in the end, what are the chances they'll be happy with that dynamic?? just, ugh. but of course I didn't say anything, because well she's a damn stranger. then when I got off the bus I could see her touching up her makeup and that just made it even sadder because obviously she wants to look good for this guy. ugh it was just depressing.
