Crazy Friends!

I am sure that most of us, when we really start thinking, realize we have some crazy friends and not the good crazy either.

I had this friend that I had known for about 3 years. We were cool. Not BFF’s or anything but we’d talk on the phone and hang out together. I had always known that this woman was a very one sided person but I chose to overlook that characteristic in her personality. She felt things should only go according to her beliefs and anything else was wrong and unacceptable. She was not very understanding or forgiving of others shortcoming’s or PERCEIVED shortcomings. I chose to overlook those characteristics although I must admit it was not easy.

One day she and I decided to go to dinner and have a nice meal and conversation. Just hang out and have a good time. Well, while we were in the midst of our dinner a gentleman walked into the restaurant. My back was toward the door so I did not see this guy walk into the place. She commented on how nice looking he was. I turned around to get a peek and saw him walking toward our table and in fact the waitress seated him at the table right next to ours. I gave him the subtle once over and determined he was pretty decent looking and made mention of that.

She and I continued our meal and conversation. She would from time to time mention the guy next to us, who was dining alone I might add, and was contemplating starting a conversation with him which she ultimately did.

They exchanged small banter and we introduced ourselves. The three of us started making small talk and the gentleman eventually moved too the seat at his table that was closer to our table so we three could better converse. It was all going very well. The three of us talked and laughed and had a great time. Somewhere along the line, however, my buddy lost interest in this guy and became pretty quiet. It was cool because he and I still continued talking with her chiming in from time to time. She eventually asked if I was ready to leave and I decided it was time to go. The guy asked for us to exchange phone numbers and maybe we could all get together and hang out again. I thought that was fine so we all exchanged numbers and went our separate ways.

A couple days passed and my girl asks if I heard from the guy. I hadn’t and told her so. Several more days pass and I get a call from this guy saying he and a few of his buddies were going out and wondered if some of my friends and I wanted to hang with them. I thought it would be fun and started calling friends including my girl from several days ago. She immediately copped an attitude because this guy called me and not her. WHATEVER!

Anyway. Another week passes and the guy called me again and asks if my friends and I wanted to meet him and his buddies. I again call my girl and asked if she wanted to go. Oh why did I do that!!!!! She just went off about how she didn’t want to go out with him and his buddies because he never called her. Ok…whatever. Then she asked me if he asked me out would I go and I replied with an “I don’t know.” Oh why did I do that!! She went off on me about how I was wrong because she saw this guy first and I shouldn’t go out with him and how she had initial interest in him and so forth. I couldn’t believe her. It’s not like she and the guy ever went out. He never called her…they never ever spoke on the phone. Come on. She had no claim on him. Besides….he never asked me out so what was the point in getting all up in arms. He and I were not hooking up at all. She proceeded to tell me how I couldn’t be trusted and all this crap then she had the audacity to hang up on me.

Needless to say that was the last time I talked to her crazy ass. Some people. How are you going to get upset over a guy that you don’t even know and break up a three year friendship.

Oh well.

That's too bad - she is extremely jealous and it's always a lose lose in a relationship

Is she still in the thrid grade? Wow, I see no problems here. It wasn't like she had actually gone on a date with him or something.

She probably missed out on meeting one of his really cool friends that could have been a catch. More chances for you.

She saw him first?

She saw him first????

Okay, like maybe if at dinner before he starts talking to you she maybe can joke around and say she saw him first, if the two of you make a habit of saying that sort of thing. Other than that, it just doesn't make much sense.

That's like on My Name Is Earl, when his brother Randy calls dibs on every pretty girl he sees.

About the "my buddy lost interest in this guy and became pretty quiet", maybe at that point she perceived she was "left out" and got a little miffed? From what you wrote, she sounds like she can be peevy and do this kind of thing.

I'm not really sure "peevy" is any sort of real word.

Good riddance! She is wacko.

yerdoingitwrong said...

um, crazy ass is right!! You're better off without miss nutjob, darlin. She needs to get a grip and fast!!!

Erica AP said...

Wow - that is really weird and pretty immature of her. She obviously has issues with just being friends with guys and might have a low self esteem... But then again, I'm no psychologist. :)
