What would you do if you find out that your partner was cheating on you?
My housemate faced that question last night and his answer was to take his girlfriends mobile phone throw it outside and then picked her up and threw her out in the mud. Then, he locked the door and called her a slut.
While all this was happening I was blissfully asleep until I heard wailing and crying. Me and MOH got out of bed to see what had happened. The lights were turned on in the living room but no one was there, my other housemate Jenny was outside her room door looking as confused as us. I opened the front door to find the girl sitting right outside the door, covered in mud and crying her eyes out. I asked her to go in and she refused saying she didn’t want to get the floor all dirty. I told her “It’s late and no one cares about the floor right now, just get in”. She comes in and the guy comes out from wherever he was and tells us she has been cheating on him. While they are arguing the phone rings. MOH told me leave it, but really, who the hell would call at this time.
So, I picked it up. “Hello, this is the police, we heard that there was a disturbance in your house?”. I hesitated and then blurted out “Yes, there was and I think you should come over right now”. “Ok, what happened?” he asked. “They started arguing and he threw her out of the house” I said. “What is his name?” I answered and he asked “What is his full name” by then the housemate is there watching me so I mumbled “I don’t know”. The policemen continued asking if he had any weapons? I whispered “No, I don’t think so”. “Is he there is that why you can’t answer me properly”. I mumbled a “Yes”. In the end the cop said they will send someone over.
I stayed in the living room with the girl and the guy came over and started getting all worked up again saying stuff like “Did you think of me when you spread your legs for him? huh? Did you???”. The girl gave him the finger and said “Well, you would know all about that wouldn’t you?”. They kept going on and on and on. There I was uninterested, tired and sleepy and after a few more rounds of arguing, I gave up and turned to the girl “Wake me up when the police arrive” and walked off to bed.
She never did wake me up and I found out later in the morning that the guy left and they sent him to his mum’s. He was told to reimburse the girl for destroying her laptop and mobile phone. The police gave them a choice that either one of them leaves the house or both of them will get arrested. MOH thinks the guy opted to leave so that he can use his mum’s laptop to play his Facebook game since he smashed his ex girlfriends laptop. The guy left with scratches to his neck and back and his t-shirt was torn. Aiyah, drama la.
Now, no one is home and they are not allowed to see each other for 3 days. The girl has gone to stay with her ‘friend’ for the night and has asked if she can still stay with us. I don’t think I want another night like this.
Here is a quote I thought was an apt way to end this blog post with. “Dogs love their friends and bite their enemies, quite unlike people, who are incapable of pure love and always have to mix love and hate”-Sigmund Freud
