She told me she’d grown tired of riding along on my ego trip. So, I asked her for gas money and threw her out.
“You know, I was bothered by you at first, but then I thought to myself gee, if someone claims to hate me that much, well, then it must just be they’re intimidated by me, so is that it – are you intimidated by me?”
“No, trust me – honest to God, I just genuinely hate you.”
Sobbing and pleading will not get you anything but my disdain.
Stroking my ego is probably the way to go…
