Pushed Too Far

Pushed Too Far

by Teresa Smeigh

The phone was frustratingly quiet. Josie was so tired of John’s hackneyed excuses as to why he couldn’t call or see her.

She understood he had to work. Who didn’t?

What annoyed her to no end was when he used his wife as his excuse, or he had to walk the dog, or go away to visit his daughters. Damn him! She was all that counted in this world!

He had ordered her to never, under any circumstances, call him. She could email him. Otherwise she was to wait for him to call. Yeah right!

She picked up the phone.

    That sounds like a one-sided relationship. Maybe she could call someone who doesn’t forbid her from calling him 🙂

    oh that guy? The narcissistic selfish man who’s only care is himself? I’m so glad she picked up that phone.
