Basically the title. During quarantine my boyfriend got access to my completely dead Facebook profile (by this I mean I no longer use it) after I logged onto it on my laptop and saved my old pictures from it. He uses my laptop a lot and messaged my best friend on messenger pretending to be me. He told him the reason “I” messaged him on Facebook instead of texting was because I was afraid my boyfriend would see it, and he pretended that I was confused and didn’t know what I wanted or if I wanted to be in a relationship with my boyfriend, which basically coerced my best friend into giving this intense confession (I read the messages) where he admitted he has feelings for me. After this, my boyfriend texted him as himself from his phone, telling him he saw the messages and that I didn’t have feelings for him and he needed to stay away from me and “quit trying to ruin our relationship”.
This was back in May. All the sudden he stopped messaging me for about a week, when we usually speak daily. Eventually he texted back and acted like nothing was wrong and I thought that was odd. We didn’t see each other in person for almost 3 months until today, because of the risks since he works in the medical field.
He brought this up in person. He asked me why I had messaged him back in May and said all that stuff only to turn around and tell my boyfriend that he admitted to having feelings for me. After much confusion where I insisted I didn’t message him on Facebook he showed me the messages. I’m disgusted by his behavior as a 27 year old man. He’s not a teenager, he’s an adult, and I can’t believe he would do that. I’m also heartbroken over the fact that this hurt my best friend so much and he’s had to live with this over the past 3 months. Does this warrant a break up? I’m not sure I trust him anymore.
Ok, so my wife and I recently watched the Princess Bride with our kids. I loved it again, fantastic movie. As good as when I was a child. My wife wanted to get the full experience with the book, so she bought a copy on the ol' Amazon.
It shows up. She starts reading it and realizes, "damn, this is a long intro of some random dude." I pick up the book, look at the author and I'm like, "sweetie, who is this author? The author from the movie is S Morgenstein. Who is this William Goldman? Some dude trying to profit on some classic."
This William Goldman's guy is on the front of the book, but the book I know - the book mentioned in the movie - the author is S Morgenstein. Like, what the hell is this William Goldman think he's doing putting his name on it?
It gets worse. After an intro that is like a sixth of the book by this rando, he starts interjecting in the middle of the book. Or worse yet REMOVING parts of the book and then letting us know he cut some of the story out so we wouldn't have to worry about it. Oh my gawd. The nerve on this guy.
I'm thinking, "This idiot must have bought the rights from the estate of Morgenstein and then brutalized the book without consequence and republished it. This is the worst."
So my wife sends the book back and buys another copy.
IT'S THE EXACT FUCKING SAME THING!!!
Surely there are some actual original publications out there right?! Without all this extra crap!!! SO we can have the ORIGINAL experience!!!
I literally pull open reddit to write this very tirade expressing my frustration and I think, "Hold up. Who is this William Goldman?"
Turns out... it was originally written this way.
So yeah. I'm an idiot.
Edit: Well shit, it's spelled "Morgenstern." Ty for the solidarity those who have fallen for sneaky Goldman also. We stand in our united in our gullibility.
