Next, he and Laura sat down to watch the movie, and as soon as it was over, he left Laura’s place immediately. That night, Laura never said sorry to him. Instead, she told him to take the pie when he left, or she was going to toss it in the garbage.
In hindsight, he thinks perhaps that Laura was attempting to be slaphappy, but it just only served to make him feel even worse about the entire evening. He kissed her on the cheek quickly and made his exit. He did text her that he got home safely and wished her goodnight before he stopped talking to her.
The following day, Laura called him a total of 3 times, but he never picked up her calls. He chose to ignore her, as he really was still hurt.
“Truth be told, it wasn’t about the pie,” he said. “It was more about the fact that I tried to surprise her with something special that she specifically mentioned, and she threw it back in my face. I also gave the rest of the pie to my neighbor and his wife, and they told me they really enjoyed it without even knowing what Laura said about it.”
“We’re talking again today, but the air is not clear. I’m starting to think maybe I was being too petty, but I was also raised with the understanding that if someone cooks for you, you eat the food and thank them for it even if you didn’t like it.”
He’s wondering if it was wrong of him to ignore Laura since he still felt so hurt. Would you have done the same thing?
