The story goes: This guy goes backpacking through Europe. His girlfriend is in the states, unaware (despite being told, apparently) that the guy is in Europe for two weeks. Thus, the e-mails fly.

Maybe the guy was right in dumping the girl - because she was so ignorant. But still, the poor girl must've gone through one hell of an emotional turmoil. Imagine trying to contact your boyfriend for a week and a half, and not hearing anything from him. It's no wonder she went crazy with the emails.

Guess this shows us how important it is to listen.
