So, myself and my ex (Matt*) ended quite badly.
About a year later I unknowingly hooked up with his old housemate, Harry*, who had changed a lot and whom I had only met him a handful of times.
So, the night after the hook-up I was out again and I messaged Harry to see if he was out again that night.
I then bumped into my ex, we began to chat and as I had lost the girls so we decided we'd head for Hillbillies for food.
Hillbillies in Galway is quite small and we ended up in the queue behind Harry and his friends. I almost died – I had nowhere to run.
Immediately Matt recognised Harry and started chatting.
Harry turned around and his face dropped when he saw me (bear in mind I had been in his bed about 12 hours previous saying how much I hated Matt).
Matt proceeded to introduce us and we shook hands and said 'nice to meet you' as if we hadn't a clue who the other was.
If that wasn't bad enough, Harry's friends were behind us in the queue and had his phone.
They shouted over at us, “Harry! Hey, Harry! Caitlin is after texting you to see if you're around!”
Harry looked at me. Matt looked at me. I looked at his friends in horror.
Then Harry’s mates asked to be introduced to myself and Matt.
Harry tried to skip over me but when he said my name his friend’s face lit up and he said, “wait, you're Caitlin? That's you?”
I had to nod, smile and stand there in embarrassment whilst getting curious looks from my ex, Matt, the entire time.
We eventually got our chicken and sat as far away from Harry and his mates as possible.
Needless to say I never heard from Harry again, and Matt fell asleep halfway through his snackbox so I sent him home in a taxi. He doesn't remember a thing
