some cuck gets friendzoned by a girl who has only one arm. there's a great scene when he finds out that she had a threesome with his old colleagues (the three of them had promised to never touch her). then he basically forces himself on her and yeah this story is weird, idk what Dave is trying to say with this one

My mouth dried and I pretended to keep smiling. Why do we pursue information that we know will never leave our heads? I was inviting a permanent, violent guest into my home. He would defecate on my bed. He would shred my clothes, light fires on the walls. I could see him walking up the driveway and I stood at the door, knowing that I'd be a fool to bring him inside. But still I opened the door.

the narrator is on the edge of confirming that the girl he loves had a threesome with his former male coworkers
