From Coastal North Carolina: What a jerk! Local airline pilot is blowing up my best friend’s phone – I’m in the National Guard – stationed in New Mexico…blah, blah, blah…can’t wait to see you…I’ll be home the rest of the year…Completely forgot to mention he has a live-with girlfriend out West (one of those big square states). She calls my best friend and announces, "I think we have a friend in common…" Oops. She got the cell phone bill – he’s apparently too stupid and too cheap to have his own (or maybe he has lousy credit) – they share a phone! They exchange text messages he has sent them…not so pretty. Saddest part: Poor, deluded girlfriend is going to pick him up at the airport. (He was going to stay with her for a week before he flew back to the coast to "be with" my friend) And she’s still picking him up…Somebody in Oklahoma, slap her…
