This particular piece of frustration has been brewing for a while...
Since The Jock and his mate announced their intention to do a gap year in England next year, their girlfriends have FLIPPED OUT! To such an extent that both the boys are now single - not because the girls have given them the flick, but because the boys can't be bothered putting up with the sh*t anymore.
Do these girls seriously think the guys are going to base their life decisions around where their high school girlfriends are going to be next year? And, more importantly, why aren't they making plans of their own? Why is their identity wrapped up in who their boyfriends are and what they're doing?
I really thought we were starting to 'breed out' this sort of thinking from our new female generations. This is more basic than obsession over body shape/size/hair colour. This is women continuing to think they are somehow less important than men. Are we some sort of sub-species?
On a lighter note, we now have two teenagers running round single after a couple of years of being 'off the market'. Parents of Wellington, lock up your daughters.
