I have this person I’ve known for um, like 20 years now. She and I haven’t been really close since college. She has this thing of calling me when she is drunk, late at night. Well… Her “late at night” and my “late at night” are totally different things. She is calling at 10 pm, and I’ve already been in bed an hour (that, and she is an hour behind me time-wise).
I’ve asked her repeatedly not to call that late, but I seem to be at the top of her “I want to get back in touch when I schnockered” list. After multiple attempts at scattered speech in the startled awake mode, I’ve taken to just hanging up on her. I’ve seriously considered calling her at 5 am after I’ve been awake a while, just to give her a taste of her own medicine, but she is married to a cop and that could get bad quickly… But, I digress to my own personal vindictiveness.
Now, she is e-mailing me too.
I’ve been sitting on this email for 1.5 weeks, trying to think of a nice way to say “IF YOU WAKE ME AGAIN I’M GOING TO START WAKING YOU UP TOO!”. I’d like to try a passive aggressive approach with her, but I fear it won’t get me off the “schnockered” list. I’m normally not an agressive person, and prefer to bury the hatchet, but this has gone on long enough and has caused detriment to my sleep when she calls.
All suggestions are welcome.
