YOU SHALL NOT PASS!!!!!
No pass, that's disgusting. Someone else hit the nail on the head - non-empathy to the nth degree. You don't need that junk in your life.
I am *really* curious what his response was when you confronted him though.
*snarf* Gandalf for the win!
kdbug, I'm so relieved it was your brother (who, I will assume, is still a teen and rather clueless) and not a girlfriend giving you such terrible advice; I'd hate to think another woman would suggest that you deserve no better than a weak, cowardly, un-imaginative (because, even after you TOLD him how much your cat meant to you, he
couldn't imagine anyone feeling differently than he
did), callous and putrid excuse for a y-chromosomed being. I don't even know you and I KNOW you deserve much, much better.
And hearing about Kimblee's friend's BabyDaddy has made my day. Thank you. It just goes to show---it's not even "maturity" (so I shouldn't have made that assumption about kdbug's brother being a teen) -- it's character--BabyDaddy has it, in spades. Kdbug almost but NOT (i hope) boyfriend wouldn't know "character" if it ran over him and then sent him a text.
