When I left my ex, he tried various tactics to force me to keep having contact with him. Near the end there he “accidentally” sent a Richard Dawkins book he had ordered for himself to my house so now he really needed me to meet him for coffee and return the book.
I went to half price and sold it and used the proceeds to buy a handmaids tale (which I was definitely NOT emotionally prepared to read after just exiting an abusive relationship but anyway), so whenever I see Richard Dawkins pipe up with some confused gotcha ramblings of GREAT MANPORTANCE I just figure it’s time to go get a Margaret Atwood novel and cleanse my palate
I’m sorry about your shitty ex, but that is otherwise a great story.
I literally went up to the half price counter, opened the amazon box, and handed them the book in its shrink wrap. they asked no questions, it is not their way
Someone needs to start a book exchange service for reformed dudebro atheists to return their Dawkins/Hitchens and receive, say, bell hooks instead.
