One of the interesting things I've learned about myself over the years is that I thrive on drama. I certainly don't like dealing with it, especially when it's interfering with aspects of my life, but when it arises for whatever reason, I greatly enjoy arguing and tearing people down for it. I imagine this is a character flaw of some sort, but I believe that if people start drama, they're most certainly looking for fight and I intend to give them one.
Anyway, I told you that story to tell you this one. My friend's friend is a dumb. I'm quite sure there's no other way to put that to adequately express just how much her existence hurts my brain. My friend has been allowing me to follow along on what I believe to be one which could rival any of the nonsense we cooked up in high school. Seriously, who communicates with smiley faces when they're attempting to be serious? Who communicates issues through texts, myspace, facebook, and the like? It's just frustrating to me to see people our age who believe that this is still acceptable. I watched the argument unfold from flimsy rumors, assumptions, and extrapolations into accusations, crying, whining, and b****ing. (I am attempting to censor a bit...gonna be a teacher someday...this might be found later in my life.) After two weeks of utter nonsense punctuated by catty spitting, a conversation is started with more whining wrapped in paper thin lies and softly glossed over by lame jokes because I can only assume that this person realized that she may have finally pushed away a friend who put up with her despite her faults. I...ugh...I had many things to say and I commend my friend for not listening to my desires to tear this person apart.
My heart is with my friends as she learns to deal with this difficult person in her life.
A bit of a weird rant, I know, but it was just something I had to type through to get all the aggravating thoughts out of my head. Now I must return to the scores of homework plaguing my existence. A bientot!
