I would like to learn how to use better English expressions(18)

 

Me: I’m a little busy these days. Well.. I am a little disappointed in you. I'll tell you when I see you.
Him: “Ok”

The conversation was over.
About 10 minutes later, another message came in.

Him: By the way, I am wondering about...

He appeared again.

Me:“About what?”
Him: Tell me why you disappointed in me?
Me: Not now. Let's talk later in person.
Him: You tell me now! I’m curious now.

After much hesitation, I answered.

Me: You count on me only when you need me.
Him: I knew you were gonna say that. I hope you wouldn’t. You’re too petty.

That is ridiculous. I am totally pissed.

Me: Done. We don’t have to see each other anymore. Take care. Do well in your school. Bye!

I should have read the next reply. I regret it bitterly.

Him: Hey, take the C++ book back! I felt so bad when I took it, and his complaints go on and on like this.

I didn’t read the rest and deleted it.

Our friendship ended for this reason.

I would like to learn how to use better English ex-pressions, so I hope you can help correct errors in my writing.

    Good job! I don't quite follow your entry too well, but that's probably due to a lack of context.

    Just a note: "better" before the noun refers to the noun itself; placed after it, it has an adverbial usage. For example, I want better chopsticks (refers to the chopsticks); I want to learn how to use chopsticks better (refers to your skill in using chopsticks). If you have any questions about the corrections I made, please feel free to ask.
