ex.com

Women often say that some of their exes become dumb once they break up. Why did he have to prove it! (Thumping the chest and crying). Why oh why! (thumping the chest and crying again) An old-friend-now-turned-stranger mailed me. He wanted to show that there are no strings attached and he meant business. So, the mail started like this…

Hi
http://arunima.blogspot.com/,

Business business business…

Regards,
Ex.


Dear
http://ex.com/, (the way you like it)

I have a name. You could have left at ‘hi,’ if you didn’t want to address my name. By taking my name, you are definitely not going to cheat on your wife/girlfriend/lover/kid/family/OS/Password/Server/Browser/mom-in-law (sigh! Mom-in-law just comes out of nowhere. Focus Arunima, focus.) I think it is called e-mail etiquette. Please don’t break my heart like this. I would love to say that I dated intelligent, smart people rather than … (ehem!). Regardless of your regards, if you can’t be nice, don’t spam and give me brilliant blog ideas.

Regards,
http://arunima.blogspot.com/

Ex or present all men are alike
I think women are the smartes and most intelligent of all

Arunima said...

haha, I think it would be a case of 'we say so' and nothing more.

Stone said...

May be this was exactly how he wanted you to react :-)

manuscrypts said...

Ha, your online persona is more popular than the real person :p

Arunima said...

@austere: you are right. Why do some people fail to understand this?

@manuscrypts: oh man! I am so popular then. :-)

AmitL said...

hehehe!!ex.com,huh? What unusual people the world has..your reply was equally amusing.I'd love to see, though, what brilliant blog ideas you got from the guy's comment.

BTW,ex.com is a search engine, with the catchline'what you need,when you need it'...quite the contrary of what this post conveyed,in a way.:)

perplexed said...

But there is a bright side to this, think about it...how glad are we to know the ones we dumped are so dumb and thank god we realized just in time!

perplexed said...

oh and also @AnjuGandhi: oh so true! My friend puts it this way "there is a small amount of jerk-ness in all men like there is great amount of smartness in all women" :P

ramya said...

HAHAHAH! I cannot stop laughing arunima.com! hope your ex.com reads the post!

Ricercar said...

ha ha! poor guy! actually in my experience somehow my exes become amazing after i ditch them! most become great friends, because i really liked and continue to like them as people, but somehow it was the relationship that was the problem - so the minute you switch back to a platonic setting, things are great!

kesa2ran said...

Why is the letter so geeky ? I am a bit confused !

Mother in laws LOL .. try watching this serial call "main kab saas banungi" ;)

venkat said...

Arunima,that post is fun to read.I do not know whether " women are the smartes and most intelligent of all" as Ms.Anju Gandhi put it, but women are superior human beings. Women are kind,thoughtful, understanding,caring,empathetic,flexible,good listeners,nonaggressive. Ofcourse,there are exceptions,but in general women are angels.
