This is the story about Carl confronting and expressing the anger he has towards his ex-boyfriend Sean for the demise in their relationship.

Sean was running errands and saw Carl, who was beyond pissed, and Carl approached Sean and said, "You bastard." then Sean began by trying to flip the script to paint himself as the victim by saying, "You decided to go on vacation three times without me being irresponsible, being indecisive, you're lazy..." "You're such a fucking hypocrite," Carl added. "You've got some nerve calling me lazy and irresponsible. Who was the one that went across town to pick up half of the rent every single month from the time you bailed until the final month of our lease? I did, and every time I came over, you either had a snide-ass remark or gave me a hard time or both as much as I wanted to leave that shithole apartment time and time again that it's not even funny, unlike you, who decided to bail 3 months before the lease ended, I decided to stay there because it was the honorable thing to do. I'm sorry you weren't able to help your family. At the same time, you should've thought about that before you decided to move back in with them, which you decided to do without having the common decency to tell me ahead of time. As far as going on vacation, I'm gonna go regardless. You knew from day one that I like to travel, so it ain't about you plus, if I told you, you'd find a reason for me not to go even though I'm taking precautionary measures by wearing my mask, socially distance, etc. the world doesn't revolve around you. You were so hellbent on having a cat in the complex, even if it meant having it be in direct violation of the lease and having little to no regard for how this would impact me negatively when I told you about it with valid reasons, you were dismissive about it then you were butthurt to where you went behind my back and signed adoption papers." "You're a messy and disorganized person," Sean retorted. "Yes, but I am a work in progress and getting better at it," Carl responded. "By the way, but that didn't stop you from wanting me to move in with you, and you knew from day 1, and if that was an issue, then why the hell did you ask me to move in with you in the first place?" he added. "How about when you snapped at me, and I called the cops on you? I came in calm, and you went off on me," Sean added. "I went off on you because you harassed me about the cable and internet box for months, and you'd bring it up every time we interacted and not shut up about it, and the day you took it was when I got fed up with you and your bullshit," Carl said "You're quick to point out my faults and how I went off on you but fail to point out the reason why I reached my breaking point and the reason why I snapped," he added, "You tried to play mind games with my mother to save your own ass to make yourself look innocent." Sean tries to justify his actions and tried to play mind games with Carl to make himself look like the "victim." "Miss me with the bullshit," said Carl. "That's what you do best when you're being held accountable for your actions. You play mind games, and you point out everyone else's fuck ups as a deflection from your own fuck ups," he added, "What the hell are you trying to say?" Sean asked, "What I'm saying is that you talk about how bad Tammy is, but you're no better than she is," Carl said then he added, "You're just a selfish, lying, immature, manipulative, malicious bastard who always has to rely on mommy and daddy taking you from point A to point B not to mention that you've lied to your parents and keeping things from them. You lied to them by telling them that you got laid off, but you actually got fired in reality. You didn't tell them you got scammed by a "sugar daddy," and I had to pull in the extra weight because you fucked up. You failed to tell them about us dating for over a month, and they found out through your one of siblings, and Tammy allegedly was the one that spilled the beans. Oh, I'm sure they still don't know about your current "boyfriend," and I'm sure they'd be pissed because you didn't tell them, and once again, they found out through someone else." Sean proceeded to slap Carl and said, "How dare you." Carl slapped Sean back and said, "How dare me? How dare you! The truth hurts Sean, and you hitting me is proves what I said about you was true, and you know it,' then he added, "You've abused me and tried to change me into something that I'm not, and when you couldn't manipulate me anymore you decided to be a little bitch and left because your ego was bruised." Carl walks away and says, "You reap what you sow, good riddance"

Honestly sounds like both parties have some room for improvement and compassion and are both responsible for these unfortunate occurrences by ignoring red flags and allowing shit to slide. Also could have given notice to leave the apartment. Didn’t have to stay for 3 more months. Yeh I get it the guy is an asshole but I myself have acted with similar disgrace and I think that’s just a natural part of growing up. Life is a tragedy. Whose isn’t? Naturally there’s drama.

A key factor that I accidentally left out (which I apologize) was Carl and Sean signed the lease together, and when Sean left, Carl would've been okay with Sean moving back in with his parents, but what made Carl upset was the fact that Sean told him at the very last minute. Their lease was ending, plus Sean didn't want to be taken off the lease because he and Carl didn't want to do that only to find out they're breaking the lease and paying $600 plus the rent for the remaining of the lease, which would be thousands of dollars as all of this is happening while in the midst of COVID-19. You're right. Both of them have room to improve. Hopefully, they learned some valuable lessons in their relationship as a couple, so those same mistakes don't happen again whenever they enter a new relationship. I may do a back story, but I'm not sure yet
