Real life story - Witnesser Diary
She was like my brother. Yes, you read that right. There is no grammatical mistake, she was like my brother. We were very close. Closer than friends and siblings. But she wasn't my sister, she was my bro. We used to work in the same office. Our cubicles were just side by side. We used to annoy, understand, support and insult each others at everything. We knew about each others' love life, the family problems, financial issues, the crumbling relationships, the good, the bad and the ugly times. We celebrated each others' success. We emotionally supported each others' downfalls. We knew more about each others than any-fucking-body at that point of time. We also fought every single day but we knew our hearts were just clean slates. It was childish and innocent fights for about a year. I remember her words too, especially because she used to say "I am not like other girls I hate drama". And it was true until one day she crossed a line while teasing me on my skin colour in front of everyone. I felt so insulted I said, "if you were a guy I'd have broken your jaw right now".
She said "what?!"
I repeated myself clearly, "If you were a guy I would have broken your jaw right now."
She said "Wtf tu kar ke dikha, kar ke dikha".
I laughed and said, "you'd be lying on the floor by now if you were a guy, lucky you're a girl, move!".
And then I tried to walk away. As I was moving off she said, "I thought you are a good guy Rajat, how can you talk to a girl like that?".
Then she stopped talking to me even though we come face to face in the workplace, after a few days she had blocked me everywhere.
I quit the job for CAT preparation and stuff.
After a few days, I went to office for PF formalities before meeting the HR, I met her and apologized to her in office as I had realized it was my mistake. She said it's okay. We talked for about 10-15 minutes she told me about joining Uber soon, I told her about my new relationship.
Then she said, "You better control your mouth Rajat".
I said, "If you're talking about that I have something to say.
Do you remember, you used to say you wanted to be treated like a man and that day when I treated you like a man, you behaved like a girl and blocked me..."
She said "Tu ye dialogue bolne hi aaya tha na?"
I said "Haan."
We both laughed a little, I thought everything is cool now. Then somebody else stepped in, it was our supervisor, so our conversation ended there. While I was leaving I looked at her and she had became serious suddenly. I couldn't ask her why because we were in the office surrounded by a team of 5 which I used to be a part of but since I had quit many days ago I had to go quickly as I wasn't allowed to stay inside the office for long. I told her to unblock me as I was leaving but we never talked after that.
Recently I tried contacting her through a bitch but that bitch didn't seem to be helpful. So I messeged her via my new insta account, she must have read my msg saying "Tune abhi tak unblock nahi kiya mujhe? paap lagega teko - Rajat."
I got 2 notifications saying she accepted my follow request and followed me back, but before I could come online to see that notification she had blocked me again. I was like, "damn she's still a girl". Disappointed. Very. Disappointed.
It's not her fault though. I wasn't a good bro. The beauty of this story is that, I believe, not a single thing would change if she was a guy. It'd still be the same. I wasn't a good bro.
