Meet Eric, a Self-Described Jerk

Louisville, KY – Meet Eric, a 41-year-old computer repairman who came home late one too many times. Last Thursday, his girlfriend, Stacy, who he’s dated on-and-off for four-and-a-half years, sent him packing. The Feral Scribe found Eric standing on the median of a main thoroughfare in Louisville, KY, on Tuesday, during rush hour. “I’m really in the dog house,” he told me. “My last chance was a last chance ago, but I’m hoping for one more last chance.”

Just how many times last month did Eric come home late?

“I don’t know,” he said. “Maybe four or five.”

Eric was expecting Stacy, who gets off work at 3 p.m., to drive by at any moment. His hope was that she’d be so wooed by his desperation that she’d forget her frustration, pull over and welcome him back. “I just love her with all my heart,” he said, adding that he’s never cheated. “I want to let her know it won’t happen again.”

As of 4:30 p.m., Stacy still hadn’t driven by, at least that he noticed. “She’s been working a lot of overtime lately. Maybe today is one of her overtime days,” he explained. “I’ll stand here until seven. If I don’t see her, I’ll be back tomorrow.”
