Did You Do It?

This is obviously the favorite question of every nagger in town.

An ex once called me that and I just don’t get it. I may be a lot of things. But I’m not a nagger.

Or am I?

Let me take you back to that instance when I was tagged as being one.

It was one of those spats between lovers.

I was being my usual self, Raft3r the Indifferent. She was, after all, on a war path and I was not in the mood to be caught in the cross fire. She kept rambling about what was wrong in our relationship - that I was this and I was that. Yada, yada, yada.

She may have gone on for hours and I had this blank stare on my face. I hate being lectured.

Maybe she realized her point wasn’t coming across, so she decided to shut up.

It was, then, I asked her: “Baby, what’s wrong?”

Ex: “Will you please stop nagging me!”

Years from now, that story will continue to haunt me.

I still can’t figure out how being indifferent can be construed as nagging. I kept my silence the entire time and in the only instance I opened my mouth, I was immediately accused of nagging. Oh, come on!

Maybe I am in denial. Maybe I am a nagger. Maybe I do have that insane need to constantly dwell on the same things over and over again. Maybe I am driven by this insatiable thirst to continuously bring up past grievances and trivial complaints for the sole purpose of annoying my mate.

So, did you do it? Did you? Did you?

bestfriend said...

so far this is my favorite among your entries. very entertaining, this makes me smile, because i am also guilty of doing this, i think almost all the girls are doing this to get the attention of their guys.
this is becoming to be a habit, i look forward everyday to your journals.

Ang tawag ba sa nagger iyong itim or black color?

ar-dee-see said...

Since our accumulated (inperson)interaction is about 37.23 hours (so far), I would say that you are not a nagger.

Raft3R said...

donna, May daya pala ang music trivia knowledge mo, e. Pano na yan? Hehe.

babe, Ikaw talaga, oo. Tsismis na naman ito. Hehe. Buti na lang anonymous ka. Nyahaha.

anonymous, Magkaiba po yon. But we won't discuss that here since my wifey is an African America. Funny observation, though. =P

Nagging is the reason why the guy I was with for more than 5 yrs left me...the girl is the nagger friend...not you.ganyan talaga, ika nga, Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus, (tama ba? baligtad ata..hehehehe...). I think the only way para malaman mo kung iba ka nga ba o hindi is to read the book para maintindihan mo ang moods ng babae vs boys. hiramin mo sa akin minsan..baka makarelate ka friend...hehehhe..Nice blog! Wish ko lang mamaintain ko ang blog ko ng ganito..tamad kasi ako magtype e...keep it up and I am looking forward on your future postings here! :)

Raft3R said...

stephanie, Thank you for the kind words. I highly encourage you to blog more often. It's a good stress reliever. Books, ba kamo? Di na ko nagbabasa, e. Hehe. Gimik na lang tayo!

Stephanie said...

But that book is a good read, that is if you really want to understand guys vs girls behavior..hehehehehe...call ako dyan. San ba gimik natin? sabihan mo lang friend...:)

Raft3R said...

Stephanie said...

Raft3R said...

stephanie said...

O nga e pero try ko...may pasok kasi kinabukasan e kaya hindi ko sure kung ok ako dun. Nakakatawa ako di ba? To think na 15 mins away lang ang bahay ko sa opisina nakukuha ko pa mag reklamo..hahahaha!!!! No problem friend. Just post more good reads and things that we can relate on... alam mo naman mga nasa reflective mode...laging nagahahanap ng mga bagay na makapagbubukas ng kanilang kamalayan sa buhay buhay..naks ang lalim! Sige friend...basta monday pagusapan natin yan...:)
