I have this "friend" I have known since I was a kid. We were never really close or anything, but knew each other pretty well. We kind grew up together I guess. He was always picked on as a kid, and I remember always feeling sorry for him. Anyways, he moved up the ladder quite a ways recently (I give him that) and now thinks he's king of the world. He will call me up and just start blabbering about how many myspace girls he's met, or that one chick at the office who keeps staring at him, or how much money he made last month. Its hard to get a word in when you talk to this guy. He's kind of a "fast talker" as Jerry once put it. I just reply "yeah, cool. Awesome. Uh-huh. Yep". If I try to bring up something other than sex, money or cars, or wrestling, I get some snide-ass (sometimes insulting) remark from him. eventually I just say I have to go. This is a guy who also criticizes your every move . He's always gotta get his .2 cents in. I remember him and I took a trip to a friends house a few years back. He walks in, sees a cd collection and decides to inspect. He goes through maybe half of the 100 or so cds and decides to do a verbal essay on how each one of them sucks. I just cant be myself around him. Impossible. Anyone else though..... no probem. Him and I have absolutely nothing in common these days. Infact, I think him and I are pretty close to being exact opposites. To tell you the truth, I really dont know why he continues to bother me. If I dont pick up the phone, he will sometimes come over and start a rambling session in person. Ugh. It just gets incredibly annoying. He knows he's an annoying prick, too. Many people have told him. He doesnt care though. I've told him what an ass he is a few times, but he still continues his shit. What should I do? I try to ignore him as best I can, but I always end up running into him. Aint got the balls to tell him to fuck off.
