I realized she was mean.
About 4 years ago, I moved in next door to a beautiful woman. She was fun and we got along great. We started doing activities together. We hiked, we worked out, we watched movies.
Then one day, we went to a fast food drive thru and she completely berated the workers for no good reason. I was mortified. Then as we were driving away she said "They're the stupidest people. They never listen." Then I said "You know they probably spit in your food, right?" She gave me a "thanks a lot" look. My crush ended that day. -casino_night
