friend of mine asked me for an opinion today - I will
tell you his story.
married to this chick for some years now. Apparently,
he picks his wife up from work from time to time and
tonight was one of those nights when he does. He called
him wife just as he leaves the office and told her he'll
be there in 20 minutes. He gets there - door is locked
and calls his wife. Takes the life some time to shut
down the computer and leave the office - all the while
knowing that her husband is locked outside the office
waiting for her. While he waits, there is a whole flurry
of activities going on in the office and all the people
who saw the husband waiting outside don't even bother
to open the door to let him in. So he waits until she
says she rushed out of the office as soon as he called
(the second time).
maintains that she should have gotten ready and be ready
to go by the time he gets there and not to get ready
only when he gets there.
it became a question of who should be waiting for whom.
out that this is a history between the two of them that
NEVER gets sorted despite many conversations and fights
he tells her also that he is angry that no one bothered
to let him into the office and kept him outside knowing
that he is outside and he can't get in.
says, why bother? They are all leaving, which was why
they were rushing out so that they can all leave.
tell him "Dude, just leave it. These are trivial
matters and all it needs is for one person to give way
to the other person."
he lands a shocker on me - he tells me that "Ben,
this is the best I am ever going to get and it will
never get any better. I don't know what is left for
the future if this is a sign of things to come."
tell him to just sleep on it and that he's just tired.
I tell him never to think that way because the two of
them are both so in love with each other and that little
differences between a couple will be inevitable.
was being his lawyer.
here's the thing - his kind of situation is not unique
but what happens when one person say enough is enough?
Which is why it is so important to remember the little
things in life that:
love means never having to say you're sorry"
you love each other and drive each other crazy - at
which point do you say enough is enough? Never"
never let go Jack"
jump I jump"
had me at hello"
the point to the above? MOVIES MAN!!!! THEY TEACH YOU
EVERYTHING!!!!! So being the idiot that I am, I quoted
all of the above to him and followed up with a final
you guessed it - the most romantic movie of all times
"GONE WITH THE WIND"
MY DEAR, I DON'T GIVE A DAMN."
counsel I turned out to be. I can be such an idiot some
