Changing Relationships

“I don’t believe it. I just don’t believe it! After all I’ve done, this is how you treat me?”

“Robbie, I…”

“Six years. Six long years of my life I’ve given to this relationship, and now you’re just going to discard me. Just another in your long line of broken hearts!”

“Robbie, we’re not…”

“’We’re not’ what? We’re not ‘compatible’ anymore? We’re not ‘the same people we were when this all started’? We’re not what?”

“Robbie, you’re being unreasonable.”

“I’m… I’m being unreasonable? You drop this on me. No discussion. No warning. Nothing. Why… Oh, my god. You found someone else, didn’t you. Didn’t you!”

“Yes, Robbie, that’s what…”

“What, you think he’s better than me? That it’ll work out with him but not me? What does he have that I don’t?!”

“Well, for one thing, Robbie, she has…”

“She? SHE?! I’m losing you to a woman?!”

“…her MCSE and A+ certifications, you don’t. And you’re not even taking a paycut, for Pete’s sake! You’re not being fired, just replaced as the head of IT!”
