Brianna Writes: Dear Chely, My boyfriend has to work every Friday and Saturday night, and I’m getting tired of it. I either stay home or end up hanging out with another couple. I’m not having any fun in this relationship. Should I break up with him?
Dear Becky: Oh, yes. By all means break up with him just because his boss schedules him to flip burgers when you’d rather be going to the movies. And while you’re at it, you could just sue him for all the buttered popcorn you missed out on because of his job. Maybe I’m just in a bad mood, but sometimes I get sick and tired of people being so selfish. Let me ask you a question, Brianna. Did your boyfriend buy you a Christmas present? A birthday present? Did he get you candy for Valentine’s? I’ll bet he did. And does he take you out when he’s not working? I’ll bet he does. And do you know where that money came from? His job! I’ll tell you this much, if I were him, I would break up with you and find me a girl that appreciated me for trying to be just a little responsible! Oh, I hope I didn’t say an ugly word. Sometimes one flies out before I realize it. I really need to work on that.
