Excuses, Excuses

Curious if The Busy Builder ever got his priorities in order? Yes, he did. And he chose work. Which is why he's single. And also why he should probably not be on a dating site looking for a relationship.

The Busy Builder drew this just days before the dump.

Here are some of the key points from our conversation. He didn't even realize all five are used by every single man on Earth:

  1. I'm sorry. I'm an asshole. -Yeah, I get that. But what a copout. Why are you sorry? And what are you going to do about it?
  2. I'm just really overwhelmed with work. -Aren't we all? This is one of my least favorite traits from the people of my generation. We're so busy trying to reach personal success, we forget it's all about who you share the moments of struggle with.
  3. You deserve so much better than me. -Everyone hates hearing this from someone who has just dumped them. C'mon, we both know if you thought I was awesome, you wouldn't let this opportunity pass you by.
  4. It's just bad timing. -Oh this one makes me so angry. Going alllllll the way back to Trechcoat Guy, I've been told that timing is everything. But my experience with The Aussie (a man who I met in Vegas, who lived in another country, and we still made it work somehow even though I hated the idea of long distance) shows me that timing doesn't mean a thing if it's the right person.
  5. So, do you NOT want me to call/text you anymore? Can't we be friends? -No, we can't be friends. We had sex. And if you don't have the time to dedicate to me as a good boyfriend, you probably don't have time to be a good friend. And let's be're not going to text me anyway.
I still don't think The Busy Builder is an asshole. Maybe that's my problem, but I always try to see the good in people. Do I think he's going to miss me? Absolutely. ;)


  1. "We're so busy trying to reach personal success, we forget it's all about who you share the moments of struggle with."

    I love it!

    1. Thank you! It's one of my strongest opinions on life/relationships! Life's too short...

  2. It's like I'm reading about my current everyday life. About a man I have been in love with for 4 years, (no not my ex) someone I met before him that had "bad timing" 4 years ago and hit me up a few months ago.... both of us newly single, and he is always busy of course, because he has his own company. I don't understand this "not finding time during the day at some point" to text. You're so busy, that you can't even text back... not even on the toilet? Please. :)

    1. I feel like everyone has this kind of person in their life. And I agree that's there's no such thing as being too busy to send a text. Some people are just selfish, and that kind of behavior doesn't change. Ever. Cut the cord!!
