Hey aunts, I really need your help, advice and wisdom here.

It's complicated, but basically there is this guy I'm seeing/dating. We've been seeing each other for about a month now. Last night we went out for Saint Patrick's day. It felt like we were actually getting pretty close. However, nearing the end of the night he started to ignore me a bit, so I was a little pissed off (I don't know why but he amplifies emotions in me... usually anger and sadness)

I didn't drink much so I dropped 3 of his mates home in my car. They were all backseat-driving and being drunk idiots which got me more peeved. So by the time we got to his house, I wanted him and his mate outa the car quickly. They were messing around when getting out so I drove forward about 20cm. Unfortunately the guy I like had his foot near a wheel and it got driven over. I offered to take him to hospital but they just went inside. I had to drop my best friend home after that so I couldn't hang around.

Later I got a message from his mate saying that theyr taking him to a hospital and his foot is broken, and not to talk to him.

So here is my dilemma... what do I do now? He didn't reply to my message last night apologising and asking him to update me on his foot.

I have stuffed up so badly. I don't know what to do. Where do you go from running over the guy you like???

Please help.

scythe agony auntHey cutie_babe12

I spose it is slightly sick. But I'm to relieved to be mad at him. I did run over his foot, it's just not broken.

He was just playing with you? What a sicko...:( Still, as long as everyone's happy.

I have this terrible thing where I worry until I get heart burn and throw up. I would have been throwing up all day if I thought I ran over someone's foot.

Still, it's good it's over, and we can all laugh about it now.

scythe agony auntOk guys, I've got some great news

Firstly I'de like to say a thank you for giving me some sanity this morning when I was miserable (morbid is a good description, Toasty).

Basically, the three guys in question walked into the shop I work in today. Walked. It turns out that it wasn't broken... they just wanted to pay me back for being shitty with them last night. I know it was a horrible thing for them to do, but I can't be mad at them since I'm so glad that the guy I'm seeing isnt hurt.

Yes, I was gullible, but they did it so well that even my best friend and out aquaintences thought he really did go to hospital and need surgery.

Anyway... my sanity is restored and I don't have to crawl under a rock and die anymore.

Thanks again guys

I'm gunna name my kid Scythe, lol.

If I were in your shoes I'd be pretty depressed, too. Morbidly. It's not just your fault, though (I wouldn't say it's his to him for obvious reasons), since he was hammered at the time of injury. There's something to think about, eh? :D

But yea...other than that, keep kissing some butt on MSN. Maybe kiss ass to his friendlier friend, too.

scythe agony auntHey Collaroy,

I know I will eventually laugh at this but right now its too depressing.

Ok - I just found out how bad it is. He needs surgery and can't walk for 4 weeks. I am an idiot... sigh. He's talking to me politely on msn. I spose that's something.

Oh and I've decided against the flowers now. I was going to send buttercups (his friends call him buttercup as a joke) but the florist informed me that they are poisonous weeds. Great.

Collaroy agony auntHi,

It was an accident, pure and simple. He and his mates were behaving like prats so it is natural you were peeved, and while it might be a hard one to come back from.

Chances are he is going to snub you for a while, I think sending flowers is a good sign that you really are sorry and care about him. If he cannot forgive you eventually then he is just a big sulk.

But as for anything else there is not much else you can do but wait, but you may have to accept the possibility that he has put you down as a crazy person - chances are his mates have already done this. Just one of those things, you will laugh about this in a few years.

I already am, sorry.

scythe agony auntHi Toasty,

Scythe isn't my real name (I wish!) but it is indeed spiffy (spiffy is an awesome word).

Ummm thanks.. yeah I'm totally stumped. And we were just getting close (its taken a month!) and then I go and run over his foot. One of his best friends hates me like there is no tomorrow (great guy, really loyal) and the other best friend just told me to chill and kiss-ass when he gets better (again, great guy.. im so glad one of them is talking to me).

And to make it worse, he plays ALOT of sport... and drives ALOT so I've totally ruined his life for the next few months. (I'm assuming that he won't be able to use his foot for a while).

Scythe is a pretty spiffy name. :)

But wow...I don't know where you should go. Just wanted to say that's a really good question.

On a slightly interesting note, my teacher in high school ran over her OWN foot. She has a disease where it looks like she's making voluntary movements (swinging her arm in a circle, bouncing her knee, moving around a lot), but I'm not sure if it played a role in running over her own foot, but none-the-less, it was amusing to hear her say 'oh, i ran over my foot' when asked.

scythe agony auntThanks SouthernBelle,

I love how you aunt's always take my side, but I'm feeling so guilty and horrible right now that I can't think bad of him.

I just rang Interflora Flowers to get a quote on delivering flowers. Do you think thats too much? I want to say sorry, but I don't want to scare him, and I'm sure he has reveived enough "I'm so sorry I didn't mean to hurt you" messages already.

Ideas on the flowers?

SouthernBelle agony auntFirst of all it was an accident, its not like you puposefully ran over his foot being pissed off. If he can't realize it was an accident and wants you to leave him alone over an accident he obviously has some issues and I would quit talking to him anyways. Not to mention how rudely he treated you. Using you as a taxi cab to drive around him and his drunk buddies, then telling you to leave him alone because of his drunk friends you accidentally ran over his foot. Thats unacceptable.
