The Ploy

I swear I've got some kind of Spidey senses because after I posted yesterday, I got a gut feeling that Mr. Toolbelt would call me and you guessed it he did; this morning.
I was at the Dr.s office and my phone rang; well actually it spoke. I have a feature on my phone that announces who's calling. Good thing for me I don't have his number stored in my phone, or it would have sounded something like this, "call from The Stalker" or "call from The Asshole" or "Call from Bugaboo" or something else to that effect, which could have been either amusing or offensive to anyone in ear shot. Instead it announced, "call from 516-435-xxxx and I groaned in disbelief. The nurse, as she was drawing blood asked, "do you need to get that?" I furiously shook my head "no" and allowed her to continue on with her business.
Upon leaving the Dr.s office, I went to grab a bite to eat as I had to fast and by then was really hungry. I went back to work and saw the Message Waiting light on my phone flashing. I immediately thought, "I bet that )*%)*#_*^ already called me and left a message before calling my cell. I reluctantly listened to the message, but was pleasantly surprised to find it was someone I actually enjoy talking to. Figuring I might as well find out what the hell Mr. Toolbelt wanted (he'd left a message), I check my voice mail. He announces who he is (like I wouldn't recognize his voice) and then tells me that I have something of his and that I should call him about it. I chuckle. It's his ploy to get me to call him. I chuckle again.
I do in fact have his authentic Christian Dior sunglesses, which I've had since late August mind you. They look great on me and I honestly was going to keep them. *lol* Anyway, my chuckle now turns into full blown laughter because I think it's hilarious that all of a sudden he realizes that I have them and he wants them back. I guess he figures I'll call him back and then he can try and engage me in conversation...NOT! I'm too slick to get caught out there like that. So, here's how it's going to go down...
1...Find said sunglasses
2...Package them up
3...Address package to my cuz
4...Call her to let her know to expect a package from me and that she needs to give it to her b/f who's friends with Mr. Toolbelt and he can give them to him for me.
5...Aniticipate another phone call once he gets them back.
I've got a feeling I'll probably get another phone call before I even get the sunglasses in the mail, but unless he catches me at work, he won't hear my voice in his ear.
I swear, I just don't get folk, but I'm getting that some of them can be a form of perverse amusement for a twisted mind like mine. *hysterically LMBAO*
Love to live; live to love!

@ myself...i just read this post over and was LMAO because i had this ridiculous thought that instead of him saying he wants his glasses back, he'd say, i've got his heart...choking with laughter now...and then i'd have returned some banging sunglasses for nothing. OMG! I'm a friggin mess, but this ish is too funny to me now. i feel like i'm living in Karrie.B's world!

love to live; live to love!

Mr.Slish said...

I don't think he wants the glasses back...Its ploy I say keep em! I hate guys like this they give TRUE playboys a bad name...I think this dude's ego is brusied because from you've told me u ended it...I think he's trying to reel u back in so that he can get u caught up then cut you off so he can feel good about his loser ass...

@ Slish - see, this is why I heart you so much rude bwoy, cause you keep it real and can see through all the dutty rass antics dis ya one a try fi wuk.

He didn't call back yesterday, so I am even more convinced that it's a ploy. As much as I like the sunglasses, I'll send them back then let's see what excuse he'll have then to call me. I'm sure getting them back will hurt his already bruised ego because he might finally realize that I see through all his b.s without even having to speak to him. I've got class, self-assuredness, confidence, and maturity in my favor to get caught out there so if he wants to keep playing himself, if can.

love to live; live to love!

GIRL! Our lives are on some parallel plane, because (married, ahem) Mr. Big will not leave me the f*ck alone! Dude is really on some stalker status with the texts, IM's, emails (TO WORK) and calls. UGH!

chele said...

I'd send them back too. You think his ego is bruised now ... wait until he gets those glasses!

Blu Jewel said...

@bz - Oh boy! So, I know you know how maddening this mess is and can be. It's like, "Vanna give dude a clue won't ya" Sheesh!

@ Chele - EXACTLY! You're definitely feeling me on this.

Love to live; live to love!
