Well I know I go on about her but she really took the biscuit this time! Shelley!

They were due to come here on Saturday evening for a takeaway and see us, so I thought!

Shelley asked if they could come earlier because then they could show off their new Mercedes slk to us! I said yeah thats fine! Thinking to myself - are they coming to see us or just wanting show off the car.

My Joe's Guitar school then send an invite for us all to go and watch the Grade 6 students perform on Saturday 4-6pm! So I text Shelley to say that we are attending Joe's school concert and that they wouldnt be able to come til six.

The reply from Shelly was: Oh but it will be dark then, can't show off the car, shall we leave it til another Saturday!

Can you believe that! So it downright proves that the only reason they were coming was to show off the bloody car. I text her back and said sorry but Joe comes first.

I really wanted to text her and say - look please dont bother coming if all you want to do is show off your car! Well I didnt did I. I texted saying, what a shame we were looking forward to seeing you. And, I suggested we met at lunchtime instead! I so wanted to say something but I can't, maybe its because Im just too nice.

Anyway, they cant make lunchtime so we will be arranging another day. Whoopeee I cant wait, NOT!!!

Melissa said...

Yikes, I hate it when people are so self absorbed. You, like I am too nice at times. One day you just have to tell them what you really think LOL.. take care

How was the concert hon?

Your friend... is she a good one? Other than the car thing. Do you usually enjoy spending time with her? If so, do the car admiring thing and bite your tongue. If not, the only available when it's dark idea is a funny one :o)

My reply would have been "do not bother to come at all then" After all, you could see their car at any time. They just wanted to brag. I would not want anything to do with people like that.

Let her bring the car round, then pick faults in it.
Couldnt they get a decent colour?
Whats that smell?
Why is the interior so tacky?
Or just tell her its pretty shit really and she could have spent the money on something decent.
Or just punch her in the face.

Hi Laine, you are tto nice, why don't you telle her you are busy for the next 100 years for her? Do you really need a friend like that? You deserve better. She could have at least shown a bit of interest in Joe's concert! Life is too short, Laine, to waste it with this kind of people! Have a nice weekend. Ciao. Antonella

I have no time for people like that. I've got no interest in cars and would tell her so. I always tell people I'm eco friendly and use shanks's pony or the bus! Tell her you wanted to see her not her car! She sounds a very shallow person. Jeannette xx
