Everyone gets a little emotionally worked up around the holidays and does a few things (or 20) that they regret when the libations and seasonal spirit wear off. But no one in the history of time has ever attempted anything as brazenly audacious as Tom.
Tom is a dude who gets a little sentimental around the holidays. Tom is a dude who wants to bury the hatchet with those who he may have wronged. Unfortunately for Tom, some of those people might want to bury the hatchet in his back. Over the holidays Tom thought it would be a good idea to share a group text with all of his ex-girlfriends, to see if they would enjoy “sharing memories” of him with each other.
Considering that he seems to have cheated on a few of them, that did not go well. At all.
Here’s how the awkwardness started:
Immediately you can see most of these women are having none of Tom’s shit. Seriously, when have you ever in your life said gee it would be nice to get together with my ex-boyfriend’s other sexual conquests and share memories of what a great dude he was?
Lisa bounced. Good call.
Hmm, does a Facebook message count as a breakup though? That’s lamer than a Post-It note.
So all of that is awful and awkward. But you will literally NEVER guess what happens next. Tom actually gets a freaking date out of this.
Great. It’s a freaking Christmas miracle. Good luck, Gemma. Hope you enjoy that drink.
