Bitch bitch bitch

hungry

current location: Brady
current mood: I need food.

Keep in mind, I'm not referring to anyone in particular in this post. It's mostly been a combination of people that have been doing this lately. And I am literally at my wits' end trying to keep up with everyone and trying to be the apathetic friend, but no more, and now to the good stuff.

I have been noticing a lot of the self-pitying, nobody-likes-me-and/or-calls-me behavior and/or rants going on. To these particular people I'm going to refer to you as whiner-babies. Congratulations you guys, you have lived up to your names. It should be understandable that yes, people will forget to call when things happen or sometimes people will do things that you don't want to do, but I'm really getting sick of the whole implications that your friends are obligated to call you at every moment and give you notice on what's going on. In those situations you have many options you whiner-babies can follow:

1.If you know an event is going down, and no one has called you, then call your friends, see what's up. Chances are, they didn't remember to call you or were under the impression you knew already. And if you did know beforehand from said friends, chances are you were previously invited to come. So if that is the case why not just join them, instead of sitting at home waiting for a call and then bitching about it later?
2.The said bitching from the previous choice is not going to accomplish anything. If something were to come out of it, it most likely will be your friends calling you a little bitch for bitching about it. So stop complaining.
3. Instead of you expecting people to call you with plans, make your own plans and call your friends. Understandably, yes, communication lines go both ways. But the expectation of calls or notifications for fun events is getting noticeably high. Stop sitting on your ass feeling sorry for yourself and go out and do something. Maybe then your friends will be waiting for your calls instead of vice versa.
4. If you find yourself in a position where you are bored or the event that you have attended did not meet up to your expectations, you always have the option to leave. No one is holding a gun to your head and telling you to stay. If you leave, be polite about it and your friends will understand. There is a thing called free-will, you might want to exercise it once in a while.
5.If you complain about an event going on, or have expressed strong opposition to it in the past, chances are your friends are not going to invite you to said event. Why bother? We know you don't like it and we know you probably would not enjoy it. We want to have fun too, we shouldn't always have to cater to you.
6. If friends are out and about and invite you and you say "Why yes, thank you for inviting me, I'll see you in a couple of minutes." Please keep in mind that to us a couple of minutes does not exceed 10 minutes. Leaving your friends waiting over an hour is rude, at least have the decency to call and say you are running late.
7. Also keep in mind that your friends have other groups of friends (WHAH?!!!). Yeah, amazingly enough, the world does not revolve around you. So if you get upset that some people sometimes do things with OTHER people then maybe you shouldn't have friends, because friends share and sharing is what makes the world go round. (I heard that from a two year old, yes I know she is quite amazing.) Or maybe you should go out and make new friends.

Again, I'm not trying to step on anyone's toes but really, I don't know how else to put it. It's like what I tell my daycare kids, you guys have choices, whether or not you use them is up to you. I really do enjoy all of my friends, but of the late, you guys have really gotten on my nerves. Some of you already know how I feel, and I wasn't crazy about posting a blog about it. But eh, whatever, right? It's up to you whiney-babies.

Gina, this is completely unacceptable. How the hell am I supposed to use the phone that I just bought that ONLY accepts calls, and ONLY from you, if you don't call. I mean, what the hell? Freaking $59.95 down the drain. Maybe you should CALL before you make decisions like this that affect OTHER people. Way to share Gina. Way to share. ;)

BTW, I'm making fresh Basil Pesto now. I even bought a cool food processor. If you want some, just snag a small mason jar or something of that nature. OR... if you bring a bag of another herb (like oregano, not pot. What do you think I am?) so I'll have something besides 4 massive basil plants, I'll get a jar for you.

Hopefully I'll be having another BBQ or movie/game night soon. Things just get damn busy during the school year. Not a time for tea at all. You understand though.
