I could go on about her friends that she treasures so much, like the one who, when she comes round I hide my bottle of nail polish remover from for fear of her chucking it down her neck (not really, but she has a liking for alcohol/meths that masquerades as alcohol) or the one who is so bloody patronising & sickly sweet I feel like I've consumed a 2lb bag of sugar after I've seen her. Or the one who is so fucking bossy she'd put the local WI matriarch to shame.
Or how about the one who does a damn fine impersonation of Coco the Clown with her style of makeup?!
Or the one who favours what looks like hessian sacks for clothing?
I'm sure all that would go down like a lead bloody balloon so don't slag off my best friend who's only faults are to be a bit dippy/disorganised & giggly occasionally. Especially when it doesn't even bloody well affect you in any way & especially not when you're just pissed off with somebody so set your sights on an easy target to take your frustration out on. For fucks sake it's not like she's some junkie or granny robber, she's a normal 24 yr old who has been a damn good mate to me when I needed it most.
You may have gathered by now that I really don't take kindly to my friends being slagged off for no good reason. I did the best thing I could have done to avoid a huge row, which was to take myself off upstairs & plug myself into my mp3 player. I came within a hairs breadth of having a row & I hate rows & will avoid confrontation at all costs, I'd rather sit down & talk it out. The thing is she knows just what buttons to press to get a fucking reaction, she's the only damn one that does & I swear sometimes she does it for a fucking hobby. Fair enough if I had friends that were down & outs or complete ratbags but I don't, they're all decent people.
This is the reason I'm thinking more & more of moving out, at least then I can filter the damn phonecall. It's not like I don't pay my way because I work, help with the housework & babysit a lot so sharing with someone wouldn't be that much different. Except financially I'd have to make sacrifices but when things are like this I wouldn't mind doing that. She was completely unfair & had no reason to say what she did. It even made me cry a bit & that I don't do often. She's so critical sometimes, then she wonders why I don't speak to her about stuff. Maybe because rather than encourage or come up with constructive criticism it's just plain criticism.
I mostly get on with her but times like that I think she's out of order. Maybe it's just me, I don't know but I thought it was very unreasonable.
Rant over :)
