A Qwaider-ical Moment

I never got too hung up on Qwaider’s old rants and exposés about the seemingly odd behavior of the “gentle gender” — that is of course before he got tamed 🙂 . After all, i am not much of a “zeer” with the ladies, and my encounters thus far have been all orderly and humane :-p.

But that all changed today. I was out with a bunch of friends with some history between them. One of them had a “not so secret” crush on one of the guys who didn’t seem to reciprocate or care. However in that lady’s mind, she was already married to him and he was her property (almost literally). Not only that, but she was also jealous of any other woman talking to him .. ever!

In her mind she had a competitor (a dorra) which was another lady in our group who she met through him. That “dorra” knew the guy from high school and they had much in common. The crazed lady recently learned that her “dorra” had previously gotten engaged and broke her engagement, and today she decided to take a swipe at that!!! So we were there eating and chatting, and all of a sudden she goes: “Wow S., you and her have a lot in common, no wonder she broke up with her fiancé to hang out with you” !!!!

Needless to say that was very awkward and impolite. I mean, how dare she exploit her imaginary “competitor”‘s private life like that! And to do that in public with the rest of us around ! I still can’t believe that. Of course my friend was shocked and didn’t know what to do. He had nothing going on with his old school friend, yet that crazy woman is making some very ugly remarks .. and in public!

I don’t know what to say but, Qwaider: 1 — Crazy Women: 0

  1. LOL Man!
    Everything that has to do with women has to involve drama! There’s a lot that goes on, a ton of it is theatrics … But at least, I miraculously escaped, alive 🙂
    Anyway, one day, you’re going to be like me. Look back at some of the things you said, or wrote and pray to the lord that she’s not going to read them again because at the end of the day my dear friend
    A happy bunny is worth more than a lonely Lion 🙂

    MORE CARROTS DAMN IT!

  2. that woman has a scary case of “fatal attraction”!! i hope your friend would not mix with her anymore!
    not all women are crazy…one day you will know.

  3. Dude, change that to “gentle gender”. Sugar and spice, and everything nice! gentile means none-jewish 😀

  4. Qwaider: hehe .. yeah i have a feeling i might regret this if i start posting such posts frequently. Now wait a second, are you the happy bunny or is she ?

    Summer: Yeah, i still believe that not all women are like that (that is why i put the score for Qwaider vs. crazy women rather than all women 😉 ). But you are right, we are actually planning to sit down with that guy and tell him to either have a word with her or just avoid her completely.

    Hani: Thank you very much for that correction. That was embarrassing 🙂

  5. lool ALLA y3eeno 3leeha esra7a 🙂

  7. I wonder what she was thinking she was going to get out of a comment like that.

  8. Do you know what happened to Qwaider after he wrote such posts?
    HE GOT MARRIED …. would you want that to happen to yourself?!!

    PS : the typo still shows on the planet lol

    I love my captcha this time 😀
    Kindness man’s haha

  9. marwa: hehe, yeah 3anjad allah ey3eeno 3aleyha .. although my personal recommendations to him would be to run away and never look back.

    Maioush: Yup, you did a very good job of taming that wolf .. and very quickly may i add 😀

    jessyz: you know .. i have no idea

    LostWithin: hahaha .. yeah .. but don’t worry .. so far i seem immune from what got Qwaider :-p.
    As for the typo, QP keeps a cached copy of the first few lines, that is why it shows .. but it is not problem (as long as it got fixed in the original document)

  10. Hani: gentile as far as i know mean gentrified and is deragatory to refer to Jews as non-gentile as it is a throwback to anti-semitic europe.

    Za3tar: habal yihbilha miskeeni. but not a representation of the misleadingly called ‘gentle’ sex

  11. loolt: hahaha .. yes i am positive she is by no means a good representative.

  12. If I were you I’d call her a b***h right there and then and just give her my best grin 😀

  13. These kinda stories are soooo second nature to your “gentle gender” that i’m so indifferent to the story… meh, another *points at KJ’s use of language*

  14. Trust me, you’ll never know what goes on in a woman’s mind when she feels jealous. For a moment, everything she does makes sense and is completely justfied, the world becomes centered on the imaginary love triangle she dreamed up in her mind. Calling jealousy a fire that eats away at you her is an understatement… despite the fact that she’s gonna kick herself later for being extremely stupid and irrational.

    Hell hath no fury like a scorned jealous woman…
