Went to bed, ten minutes later woke up from a half-sleep to my phone non-stop ringing. It's 1:30am, and my ex-girlfriend of three weeks is calling again and again.
Beta me would pick up the phone--because sex. Who says no to some late night sex? For the past few weeks though I've been reading TRP and processing the idea of holding frame. Proceed to ignore phone call. Phone keeps ringing.
Finally on the sixth call I pick it up, because I thought it may be an emergency.
Her: "HEYYYYYYY I'm drunk can I come over?! I REALLLY need a place to stay tonight."
First thing that goes through my mind: Yes, of course. Why wouldn't I let her come over? It's late at night and she needs help. There's no reason I can't be civil with my ex.
Second thing that goes through my mind: what would TRP think about this?
She needs a place to stay because she planned her night poorly. She decided to get drunk without thinking of how she would take care of herself later that evening. She lives outside the city and needs to use my place because I'm closer to the city and she has work tomorrow. She is using me.
I hear in the background: "He said no."
Her: "What? Are you kidding? You're so mean. I can't believe anybody could be that mean. Pleeease?"
Her: "But I reallly need a place to stay. I'll give you something if you let me stay. I'll give you whatever you want. What do you want?" (she is trying to barter sexual favors to sleep at my place? Fucking ho.)
Her: "Oh my god please I really need it please please--"
I hung up. Listening to her whine was pitiful. I proceed to get a string of text messages:
OMG ur such an asshole and a jerk i fucking hate you
i can't believe you said no
what the fuck am i supposed to do? ugh. you're the worst
She keeps calling for fifteen more minutes and then my phone stops buzzing. By this time I'm pretty much asleep. When I wake up, I have this text message:
"Hey man I'm sorry about that. But not letting us stay was really fucked up." --(name omitted)
Turns out her gay best friend was with her and needed a place to stay as well. SHE NEVER MENTIONED HIM. If I had said yes she would've come over with him and I would've had to deal with the both of them.
Later this morning I got a text from her:
"I'm so sorry for drunk dialing you. I guess drunk me still has feelings for you."
TLDR: ex-girlfriend calls me drunk at night, says she needs a place to stay, fails to mention her gay BFF also needs a place to stay, and I avoid the whole fucking fiasco by applying Red Pill logic.
