BF and I were talking to the neighbors in their yard. He reaches into his pocket and pulls out a slip of paper, folded in half. He looked at it and said "where the hell did that come from?" I said "it looks like an in-store coupon for something..." He didn't open it up or look at it, just shoved it back in his pocket REALLLLLL quick. So, right away, I knew something was up - he just acted 'odd' after that.
Later, we went home - he got in the shower. I needed to use the calling card to make a call, and it was in his wallet. So, as I'm digging in his wallet, the slip of paper falls out and WHAMMO there's a woman's name/number written on the back.
I asked him 'hey, do you need this?' trying not to get all bent out of shape. Then he comes out and LIES to me "uh, I don't know what it is or where it came from." Yeah, well, last time I checked, numbers didn't just write themselves and hop into your pocket. I flat out asked him what was going on - why did he have this number? So, he tells me again "I don't know what it is...but I don't need it you can throw it away." So, I asked if he was telling the truth - he said he was...so I said "well, I'll just call the # myself and find out..." Then I ripped it to shreds and threw it out.
Called the number - left a message to the woman saying I didn't know how her number wound up in my man's pocket, but I didn't appreciate it. Then I confronted him again - THIS time he tells me that it was given to him by a friend about a job...Well, if that was the TRUTH, why didn't he tell me that to begin with? So, by now I'm totally confused because it was obviously a woman's HOME number and from the message on her machine, she didn't have anything to do w/ a job...
Needless to say, we got into a huge pissing match about this. I was furious because he kept changing his story - I mean, honestly, if the # was about a job, why didn't he just tell me that to begin with instead of this "I don't know" bs?
He took off and went to his parents. Later, I called the woman back...and talked to her. Come to find out, they were just 'acquaintances' - she used to bartend at a local bar and they used to talk a bit last year when he'd come into the bar...nothing ever happened cause she was never even interested in him because she thought he was 'way out in left field and has a split personality' (if she only knew the 1/2 of it)...Anyhow, YES, she did give him the number because the place where she is working is always hiring. She was highly irate that he had lied to me, because it made HER look like a bad person. He doesn't know that I talked to her and I'm not going to tell him. I was relieved that he DID tell the truth...BUT...
I don't understand and cannot comprehend WHY he didn't just tell me the truth to begin with? Instead of letting me jump to conclusions about him cheating or wanting to cheat or WHATEVER thoughts I had when he tried denying his knowledge of where the # even came from. HOW STUPID? Talk about pissing me off! WHY would you make something sound WORSE than what it really was?
I'm done. I've had it. I just cannot and will not deal with this crap. Tonight I am going to talk to my parents and get some advice from them, maybe stay there a few nights...I just don't even care - I want to have MY LIFE BACK...I want to eat cereal for dinner in my underwear and dance to "Baby Got Back" on MTV. I want to be able to shut all my lights off, turn the TV off and go to BED by 10pm, instead of having to try to sleep with both of them on while someone stays up until 3-4am.
