One day she announced “I am finally the it girl, you know the one everyone wants to be friends with.” She was so happy, the girl who had few friends growing up was ow the center of attention. It was goodbye to all those mean girls she grew up with, she had arrived.
It girl loved being the center of attention. She loved it so much she forgot other people had feelings too. But those did not matter. She ignored others unless they were of use to her. When she suffered occassional pangs of guilt for ignoring those who were once close, she threw out crumbs and promised to spend an hour or two with them at a date 6 months into the future.
One day soon, the friends of it girl will wisen up and toss her aside and then she will be hoping someone throws her a peanut or two.
The person who has the power to stop the bullying but refuses to use it is worse than the bully.
This guy wasn’t brought up in a barn but he might have been if you look closeley at his manners.
He has never offered a seat to underlings entering his office and sees nothing wrong with making the person stand during a discussion, no matter how long it takes.
He never offers to help with books and other belongs, no matter how much the person he is talking to has in her arms, even if he sees her struggling with the objects.
He has never told anyone to use his first name but he uses everyone’s. He claims to be a friend, but what kind of friend wants you to call him Mr.
Maybe he has manners and just doesn’t care. Maybe he is just doing all this to show he is the boss. If so, he really is not a nice man.
No money is her most commonly used phrase. Debt up the kazoo. Home with mama to save rent money and pay off loans.
The shopping and the spending continue as if there will be no tomorrow.
No common sense although she has a good paying job and a phd in her field.
When someone needs something that I have, I tend to share. In fact, I always share. And, when I have something soemoen needs, I will gladly give it, especially when giving it has no detrimental affect on me.
Today, things changed. I did not lend what I could easily have lent and given what would cost me nothing. Friendship needent be one to one. But, friends give as well as receive. In our entire friendship, I have never been given. I am not giving to this person anymore.
I might be bitchy, but I am proud of myself for keeping my mouth shut and for once, not offereing a thing.
When it becomes a chore to have a friend, that person is not a real friend. Drop him!
