Boyfriend and Friends Don't Mix

Why is it that your boyfriend and your friends just don’t mix? Why do you get the distinct impression you have to give up your friends to please your boyfriend?

I'm at the car dealership, waiting for my car to be serviced, and a woman nearby is finishing up a conversation on her cell. The guy sitting with her is shaking his head. She turns to him, "What?"

Why is it anything you tell your child ends up coming out of your ex's mouth all wrong? How does your ex manage to twist your words no matter how carefully you say things?

Your child comes back from his usual "Dad" weekend, all moody and out of sorts. You ask "What's wrong?"
