So things are nicely cleared up with both
I called him challenging today. He asked why I would say that and I told him sometimes he seems so uninterested in me. He said sorry for last night and Sunday. He explained his little brother had been going through a painful time trying to see his son. They are a close family so that is kind of devastating for them. He and his 2 brothers are very close with their parents and seem to have a special closeness with their dads. He said he was so upset to see his brother cry and to not be able to help him that he just didn't want to talk to anyone. He used to do that before. So when he did that this time it scared me. Like is this the start of another parting for us? I don't want that to happen again.
Crab told me I was "Falling off" this morning because I've never put him aside for someone else. We discussed it a bit and things are cool. He thought I kept him waiting for over an hour last night when I said I'd call him right back. That is something I wouldn't have do. Yes I did choose to speak to Homeboy over him but I knew that he would be stressing while waiting for me to call back so I sped my convo up with Homeboy to avoid that. What really happened was for some reason, the first time I called Crab it went to voicemail. I waited about a half hour/forty minutes and called back again. Went to VM again. He only saw the second call which led him to believe I'd left him to stew for over an hour. Which, if I decided to do that, it wouldn't have been wrong necessarily, but that isn't what I did. I did show some consideration for his feelings and tried not to keep him waiting too long.
