Bratty McBratFace: Adventures in Dogsitting
SO and Bratty had a phone call this weekend to catch up. SO shared some news from Bratty's life.
Bratty has a GF! They've been dating since January and they are also non-binary and use they/them pronouns (I'll still use GF here for simplicity - since Bratty or GF are not reading).
GF has a Real Job with a Real Company! Very exciting as I think it will help Bratty grow up a little to be around people who are actually trying and succeeding at adulting.
GF has a dog - a greyhound - that she asked Bratty to dog-sit on Saturday. Bratty was heading to her cousin's graduation party and bringing the dog (her Aunt said it was fine). Bratty stopped at her place to grab something and left the dog in the car with the window cracked open a bit. Then, according to Bratty, there were some fireworks or loud noises that scared the dog, who managed to slip out the cracked window. Personally I think the dog knew Bratty was a toxic narc and ran away on purpose. But anyway - Bratty looked for 3 hours and found the dog, but the dog was scared and dehydrated and generally not feeling well. They took the dog to the vet the next day as it was peeing blood. I hope the dog's ok but I haven't heard.
Bratty still hasn't heard from her preferred post-bacc program that would be near us but she says she is confident she will get in. SO cleverly asked her if she had checked out rents in the area (read: no living here, Bratty) and she said she had and was hoping GF would actually move with her (GF is currently working from home but her company also has an office in the area).
It would really be ideal if GF moved with Bratty as she would be occupied and not clinging to Daaaddeee for dear life. Fingers crossed and I hope that is what happens! Of course if GF is smart she'll realize what her dog already knows and run away from the toxic narc before her life is ruined...but we'll see...
