So his phone rang. I could hear that it was my friend’s voice; his girlfriend. I guessed my friend asked him “Where are you?” so this guy answered, “Here, walking around.” Actually, he was sitting at the other side of my desk. Then my friend got even curious, “Where exactly is “Here”? So he mentioned a nearby supermarket, and NOT 256’s office. It was ridiculous. Why would he lie? He lied like a pro. No expression of guilt whatsoever. But he did signal to be to “keep quiet”. Damn! I was not even involved in this. I didn’t ask him to come. I didn’t ask him to stay. I was only being polite to let him steal my time.
Why he made it look like a crime to drop by at a friend’s office? He should have told my friend that he went to my place just to have a short chat before he left to another destination. What was I then? A partner in crime?
I remember last year, when my friend brought this boyfriend of hers to my office. It was the first time that we met. I always knew that my friend has a steady boyfriend. A few days after that, I received a call from an unknown number. It was from her boyfriend. “I came to your place the other day, don’t you remember?” Ouch… Then after trying to remember, so it was my friend’s so-called steady boyfriend. He asked me something about work, he said he wanted to drop by, but how he ended it left me feel uneasy when he said, “Don’t tell her I called you.”
He said, “I didn’t want her to get jealous.” But should she feel jealous at all? I mean, to put it that way is already not right. Why think that she might get jealous? Nobody is doing anything bad.
But that time, I actually SPILLED the beans. I finally told my friend about how her boyfriend contacted me behind her back. But I didn’t tell her exactly what I felt. I made it sound as if her boyfriend called me just to ask something to make a surprise for her. I didn’t want to insinuate that her boyfriend was cheating on her.
Cos it wasn’t cheating. It was all innocent, UNTIL he asked me to NOT TELL.
Maybe I would do the same if I were in his place. To avoid arguments and misunderstanding – BETTER NOT TELL HER. But for him to come to my place and make me part of this, make me feel like I was the subject of infidelity of her boyfriend, it was as stupid as can be. All those time when he contacted me behind my friend’s back, nothing fruitful actually came from it. It wasn’t even about work or anything. I was just wasting my time. I don’t get it. I still don’t get it.
If you do something with a good intention, and claim that you have no hidden agenda, then don’t make it look like a crime by NOT TELLING the person who should know. If he wants to create a drama with my friend, DO NOT COME to my place. I will not risk my friendship just because he has an eye-wandering boyfriend.
