Spoiled rotten little adults... Shame on me!
Update: the cake has been delivered!
The most illogical short story of my life
You know a grown up isn't really a grown up when they are capable of throwing a fit for something... Ridiculous. I'm sure being one isn't easy, but living with one can't possibly be any better. Today, I had to go through something absurd just to appease to a damsel in distress in very particular hygiene-related issues.
In order to succeed, I rang my own doorbell for like 20 minutes (aka forever) in the middle of the night. Three in the morning, there's me, making a lot of noise which wakes up every neighbor around us. While at it, I just concentrate on the task at hand.
Up next, I argue with someone who lives in the same house as I do. I feel ridiculous the entire time. It's never funny in my head, just nonsensical. I can't even get mad at who I was talking to when they refused to do what I asked of them.
I needed the water pressure back on, so we'd have water right away. That's what I'm doing all of this for. Even though we'll get it back in like 2 hours, it had to be done now. But it didn't happen. So here I am, back at my room, after failing. It's easy to talk about it because I've already done all the thinking I needed.
After some frustrating time trying to organize my ideas, I eventually realize how stupid I was for just doing what I was asked to do without questioning. I talk to damsel again, spelling out her own request back at her. She realizes how absurd it was. We make plans so it doesn't happen again, but we shamefully agree we'd never put any of our neighbors through this again.
She understands she was petty. I understand I shouldn't have gone with it. We've both grown more mature. But it was very pathetic of both of us. You know what I'm doing tomorrow, dear reader? I'm buying two cakes, ring the neighbors' doors (during daytime) and offer them as an apology.
You know, while I rang the doorbell incessantly, my cat wouldn't stop meowing. Thinking back, I imagine him saying "Felipe, what the fuck are you doing? This is not like you, you're going nuts! Get back here."
