There are different levels of friendship and it is a shame when someone drops.
I don’t have a lot of friends but I prefer quality over quantity, and want to surround myself with positive people who build me up verses cut me down.
That being said, let me share about the situation with K:
I have known K. for a while. I met her when I had my Smart car. K. worked at the repair shop I took her to. Anyway, I have had problems with K in the past. She went to see Donny and Marie with me a few years ago and almost ruined it by going on about how she really didn’t care for Donny, then making fun of me when I was nervous about meeting him, She came over and kept picking at my cat because the cat doesn’t like her, She got annoyed when we were on the phone because I received a package and was excited to open it, saying, “Okay, I guess our conversation isn’t that important.”etc..
I think the final hit came yesterday. We were catching up via phone and K asked what I have been doing. I told her about the Secret Santa Exchanges and she goes, “Secret Santa? I thought that was only at Christmas?”. When I explained about the themed exchanges during the year; she said sarcastically, “Oh great. Now I will have to hear about that all year.”. I said, “No, I won’t talk about it with you but you asked what I have been doing.”
That hurt because if you are a friend, you should at least listen even if it isn’t something you are interested in.
I am realizing what a selfish, condescending and rude person, K is. I have decided not to call her anymore and hopefully the friendship will fade away.
