If only she had gone through with it...

This is the message that Shelly left on my answering machine when my friend David decided he would rather be with his wife than her. I spent twenty minutes with various 911 operators before they could figure out how to deal with an emergency in another state (I was living in Spokane at the time, and she was across the border in Coeur D'Alene, Idaho). Of course, the manipulative little bitch has no intention of following through, she just was trying to get through to David, who had finally realized the best solution was to ignore her.

I gave a copy to her mother (my boss), and simply said, "I think you should hear this" and left it at that. Shelly called me once more to threaten to kill me, and that was the last I heard from her.

You'd think I would have learned better than to let people live with me after that one...
