His friend of a friend at Stanford had an unfortunate incident with his girlfriend….the girlfriend (Elizabeth) wrong a long, apologetic email below, and then the guy (Brad, who got cheated on) writes one of the wittiest, crude, and searing responses I’ve seen. Truly funny.

It would be difficult for me to be any more miserable right now, I feellike the worst person ever. First, let me start by saying that I am truly truly sorry, and I hate myself for hurting you. Of all the people In the whole entire world, you were honestly the last person that I would everwant to wrong in any way. There is no excuse at all for anything thathappened, so I won’t even try other than to say all of us had WAY Too much to drink, and I did a stupid thing. I can handle you being pissed at me, I absolutely deserve it, I can even handle the ugly words that were exchanged between us, what I can’t handle is thinking that you see me as a different person. It is weird, I feel like I just went through a horrible break up or something. The world looked funny yesterday, I couldn’t crack a smile if you paid me, there are songs I can’t listen to, and I just Feel beyond crushed. I don’t know if you meant everything you said to me, and I Am hoping that you didn’t. I know that I was wrong on many levels, but I am also hoping that this is something that we can deal with. I know it sounds totally crazy and stupid, but you have come to play such a Significant role in my life, I can’t imagine my days without you. It is totally Strange and weird to say that, and you could say that my behavior didn’t Reflect that, and you would be correct. I hate feeling like you hate me, and I Hate feeling like all of your friends think I am a terrible person, Because I am not. I know there is nothing I can say or do to take back what happened, but I just want you to know that fighting with you was just about The worst thing I could have ever imagined. It was right up there with one of The ugliest nights of my life, and I would give anything in the world To rewind and fix it. I am not sure if you will respond to this, part of me thinks that You won’t. If not today, then maybe some other time. Also, thanks for getting my stuff together, although I think my sunglasses are still at your house, if you could keep your eyes peeled for them that would be great. I can’t even focus or work today, I can’t eat, I seriously feel like it was An ugly break up, and I am hoping against hopes that it was not that and you are not done with me. Please don’t cut me off, I really don’t think I can handle that.I am so sorry.
