Hmmm, only big major fight with my last ex was the last big major fight with him.
It was late January. He had quit work because his company was evil (I agreed on that point), but couldn’t be bothered to look for a job for weeks. He wouldn’t get his truck fixed (I thought he was broke), so he used my car and trashed the struts.
Then, at the beginning of February, I got sick - abdominal pain, which in my experience means I have Pelvic Inflammatory Disease. Had to go to the emergency room (always a hoot), had to get a pelvic exam from a doctor who couldn’t say “pelvic inflammatory disease”; he could only say “female trouble”. It turned out that on top of PID, I also had a trich infection - which may have triggered the PID.
On top of that, I was so broke that my check for the medication bounced. Three days later, my boyfriend spent $300 on beef. Some butcher’s deliveryman needed to get rid of some meat and my boyfriend fell for it.
When I tried to explain to him, crying with frustration, how hard the last couple of weeks had been for me, and that I was very angry with him for giving me not one, but two sexually transmitted diseases, he said (and I quote) “Gee, I guess you’re never going to let me live that one down.”
I went ballistic. Never in my life have I thrown such an incredible screaming fit. I’m astonished, looking back on it, that I didn’t hit him or throw anything at him.
The next day, I broke up with him. A week after that, I threw him out of my apartment.
sigh Oh, well. I figure that used up my drama-in-romance quota, and I shouldn’t have to handle anything like that again.
