Me: “So, why the name change?” Friend: “There’s a warrant out for my arrest.”
Friend: “My ex is after me for back child support.”
Refrain from slapping. See ya!
Me: “Girl, you look great! How did you lose so much weight?”
Friend: “Well, did I ever tell you that cocaine is my drug of choice.”
Head tilt. Huh? See ya!
Me: “I really appreciate your help this weekend. Is there anything I can do to repay you?”
Friend: “Didn’t you tell me once that the doc had given you Xanex for your panic attacks?”
Me: “Yeah. Why?”
Friend: “I’ll buy them from you.”
Are you kidding me? See ya!
Me: “You said that you wanted to have your children raised in church. What happened?”Friend: “I just said that to try to get in your pants.”
Whole host of expletives resound in brain. See ya!
Sadly, I am naïve enough not to pick up on the warning signs like most. Believing in people is what I do. Seeing the good, refusing to admit the bad until it smacks me across the face – WHACK! Gratefully, I am well aware of when to call a friendship quits.
What about you? Is there something you’ve heard from a friend that has ended a relationship? Something you swore you would never repeat?
Pam is up next. Until Friday Show and Tell I bid you a good week.
