Never quite summons up courage to call. Hopes like hell she won't e-mail or ring, and that he can skulk off into the night. Sign of cowardice, therefore an automatic disqualifier when it comes to relationship material...
Man:For the love of fucking Christ, what now? (under his breath)
Woman:You aren't listening to me.
Man:Get my check book. Go fuck a hat(under his breath)
The best comeback is indifference to what they're saying, and a hearty "Fuck you". Or, alternatively, plan to do something that they'll really like as soon as they say this, then, at the end of it, say this to them, and fuck them off.
