Self-esteem had one weakness...


Story (imagine you observe the following): humans A and B become lovers for a while, and have a generally positive attitude toward one another. A goes on vacation for a while; a week before this some events leave the pair in an ambiguous and perhaps unsatisfying relation.

(See how this problem happens when you don't just have good times and make babies? Idiot "sapiens.")

Later A returns and, for reasons (let's suppose), decides not to see B anymore. Unaware of this B attempts to contact A. A rebuffs attempts at interaction even aimed at merely friendly activity. B is angry at being so rudely treated.

(What, I ask you people, what is it that you think is damn abnormal about it? None of you really say what you think. David Mack had it right about the Japanese when he said their society runs on customary "white lies." It applies generally to all of you though--look at yourself carefully. What do you really want--no one will know if you don't say it.)

Later, B discovers that A has been talking trash about B to B's friends behind B's back. Part of the motivation turns out to be to sleep with another friend of B's, C. C escapes A's desperate advances. When A turns their attention to others of A's and B's friends and aquaintances, A is similarly rejected.

(How torridly complicated you must make things out to be--look, the pseudo-ex is wannabefucking the friends and they don't buy into it/their schtick.)

A, let's say, has some problems with being rejected (sexually, etc.), which, maybe in combination with other factors, cause A to break down crying. B, who sees this on B's way to run an errand, feels a sort of karmic justice has been meeted out.

Question, anthropologists: is this human emotion justified? Is it wrong for B to bitterly laugh? How about if B feels kind of bad about having such a reaction?

Question: who the fuck cares? There is no right and wrong. Everybody knows that.
