pppolkadotflats: well if youre not going to spend 5 seconds to tell me whether or not you want me to stay on here and why then thats a pretty good idea of what that is, istn? mayorbill11: not really mayorbill11: i'd really rather you tell me your perspective than for me to tell you what mine is mayorbill11: since you contacted me, i'm genuinely curious mayorbill11: as for me, i didn't do anything, so i don't understand why you asked me the reason why you should do something mayorbill11: or whatever pppolkadotflats: thats not the point pppolkadotflats: the point is i want to know if theres a genuine reason from you that i should stay, not you didnt do anything so you have no blah blah whatever mayorbill11: well, i can't really come up with some sort of incentive, other than you wanting to talk to me mayorbill11: this isn't like punch the monkey and win an ipod or something pppolkadotflats: youre such a retard, i dont need MY incentive pppolkadotflats: all you have to say is yes or no pppolkadotflats: and youre saying its work? how much work did it take to get to this point in the convo pppolkadotflats: much more than it would to tell me yes or no mayorbill11: well, if the question is do i want you to stay on aim and call me a retard? no mayorbill11: and ask me irrelevant questions? no pppolkadotflats: i only called you taht because youre beating around a question that im NOT asking you pppolkadotflats: its not irrelevant to me pppolkadotflats: forget it mayorbill11: ok mayorbill11: well mayorbill11: i have a question pppolkadotflats: great pppolkadotflats: ? mayorbill11: this is less of a question and more of an assumption i guess pppolkadotflats: even better snice youre great at that with me pppolkadotflats: go ahead mayorbill11: it just seems to me like you being busy isn't the only reason you haven't talked to me in three weeks mayorbill11: am i correct? pppolkadotflats: no pppolkadotflats: any other questions/ mayorbill11: ok, just wondering mayorbill11: this just all seems really pointless to me mayorbill11: is all pppolkadotflats: thats all i needed to know then she signed off. basically, i saw it as her trying to trick me into begging to talk to her, of course after this i sent her a text telling her to never concact me again, because i'm sick of her deceptive, cryptic bullshit. but i really would like to know what you guys think she was getting at here, because i've though about it and i pretty much have no fucking idea. all i know is it was annoying and gay. help?
