Conspiracy Eerie

Story Sent in by Martha:

After a couple of weeks of dating site emails, Kenneth asked me out. I arrived at the restaurant and he stood me up.

Pride a little bruised, I went home. I didn't write to him, but a few days later he wrote me. "Hello? What's up?"

I wrote back, "We had plans for a few days ago. You stood me up. Remember?"

He wrote, "I didn't stand you up. Those plans were for next week."

So I went back into my emails and sure enough, there was iron-clad confirmation from him that I was correct. We had agreed on the night I showed up and he didn't.

When I brought this to his attention, I expected a mea culpa from him. Instead, he wrote, "You're just making that up! I never said that!"

I advised him to check his own emails. He then wrote me, "I NEVER WROTE THAT. YOU MUST HAVE HACKED MY EMAIL OR THE SITE MUST HAVE DONE IT. I DIDN'T WRITE THAT I'D MEET YOU THAT NIGHT. NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER."

I wrote back, "Then how do you explain the fact that you wrote it?"

"I DIDN'T," he wrote back, "YOU MUST HAVE DONE IT SOMEHOW. YOU ARE A LIAR AND CHEAT AND I DON'T EVER WANT TO SPEAK TO YOU AGAIN."

Oddly, he didn't block me right afterward. But I rectified that, myself.

  1. God OP, you're such a liar. Also, I'm going to need some of those email hacking skills of yours. Do you offer any classes?
