[Change my attempt Good intentions] I tried to help. I swear to God I did. It just seems, especially lately, that the more I help, the more I fuck it up. Interested? Read more... be warned, this will be a multiple post story... This all occurred at work. So, I’m very good friends with this girl, Allie, who’s 17, (I’m changing names), at work. She and her boyfriend Zach, who’s 20, were having problems. He was being, for lack of a better word, pretty stupid. She told me last Monday that he was telling how he thought these other girls were attractive and such, so she was understandably upset. She told me that he feels like he’s judging her, he wants her to change, he’s comparing her to other girls, etc. Now Allie didn’t want to tell him this upset her. Which is pretty stupid, I mean, every relationship needs work and communication. I told her that they needed to talk it out, so she wrote him a note that was basically, Hey, I’ve been MIA, I’ll talk to you about that later. I’m probably just being paranoid but whatever. Love, Allie. I was given the duty of passing it on to him. He read the note and got pretty mad. He looked at me and said that she was being ridiculous, since he loves her. He wanted to know what was going on with her. Of course, since I am stupid, I did not notice that this question was rhetorical. So I told him the bare facts: she feels confused, she knows that you’re not judging her and that you don’t want her to change, but she feels that anyway. And then he got mad at me, to which I said, hey, don’t shoot me: I’m the messenger. And then he got madder and said, Yeah, well, I’m telling her that you said this. And I was like, whatever, but then I was in a pretty miserable mood for the rest of the night, because I was afraid that I was gonna break them up. Tuesday passes. On Wednesday, when I’m working again, Allie’s very upset. I ask her what’s wrong, since she’s absolute crap at disgusing her feelings (since she kept saying that she was fine and happy. Bullshit, Allie). And then she told me her and Zach broke up. I was completely shocked, and I asked why. Because he said you said… you can guess from there… but why did you do it? Because, Allie, look, I’m not gonna lie. When he asks what’s going on with you, I’m going to tell the truth. All I told him was blah blah blah- the bare minimum. So she was like, okay, and things were fine. Then I proceeded to tell her about my friend Ellie (my age), who got herself pregnant at the expense of her 28 year old boyfriend. I was in a state of emotional distress and confusion, since all I did was manage to piss both Ellie and Kathy off.
