Yep . . .That IS what he said.

No, certainly not. Why would she do that?

But seriously. If there were ever an excuse for being a bitch, isn’t “you cheated on me” the case?

Alright. It’s time to learn a strange bit of trivia about me.

So I have this pattern of being dumped when a terrible, horrendous disaster occurs close to my home. Seriously.  The guy I’m with realizes the world is going to end and that he’d rather die alone than anywhere near me. The first time this happened, he was my first serious boyfriend in high school. You know, that one.

Usually I like to leave you guessing as to which are the quotes from my own life, and which are reader submissions. But today is a special case. And believe me, I wouldn’t post this quote if I didn’t know with 100% certainly that it was real.

You just can’t make this stuff up, folks. And I suppose, in some small way, that was the start of how ThingsMyExSaid was born.

Lying about CheatingCheating: If you have to ask, it qualifies.


You guys, this might be the worst coming out story I’ve ever heard.

No, she doesn’t want.


We’re ending pretty strong with our last quote for the week. Let’s all celebrate her independence from this guy.

Thought about your motherOh God…


Today we round up our March Madness Mondays with one of the most disturbing submissions I’ve received. Not only is this totally f*cked up, but it’s timely, as well. As the Steubenville  rape case just wraps itself up, so many of us are wondering, “How can horrible acts like this still happen? How is it possible that women and girls are still seen time and again as less than a person?” The best answer I can muster, particularly after reading this quote, is look to the schools. You know, those factories of peer imitation and role-modeling.

Who doesn’t want this high school teacher taking his/her daughter under his wing?

At least this guy seems to be in some level of distress for being a total slimebag. Do we blame the movies, for casting pretty little–excuse meBright Young Things to prance around as leading ladies? Do we blame the students, for wearing cute little skirts and totally asking for it? Or do we blame (my preferred inclination) this asshole for being a creepy pervert? If you can’t get through a work day without mentally undressing your students, it’s time to find a new job.

Ordinarily, I try to let the quotes speak for themselves. But as the submissions keep coming in, and some of them are so incendiary, timely, and just upsetting, I may find it harder and harder (pun not intended) not to throw in my two cents about them. Your discussion is heartily encouraged.


It’s thirsty Thursday! Not thirsty? You may want a drink after you read the quote from this morning’s winner of a boyfriend. Oh wait, whoops, that’s ex boyfriend. I wonder why…

Excuse Me?
