I saw thread about negative comments from the dancer friend’s husband and thought about my own friend since college (oh, many years) – her negativity is completely ruins anything we decide to do together as friends. People change. It is hard to end friendship, but if it outgrew itself, then it is the best choice I can make I think now. In the last year or so: If we go to an Art Fair event, than she does not like the people who come, and hurries me to leave. If we go to the museum, then she is immediately tired, needs to sit down, her shoes gets uncomfortable, she is hungry, etc... And within one hour, or hour and half the most, she would like to leave. In the restaurant she tells the waiter , who decided to praise the food “This pasta has 3 meet sauces!!!” , that he should have told her that in advance, she does not want such a mix, , and asks to take the pasta back. I am buying new Nook. All 25 minutes that I am asking questions the salesperson, she confides with all the horrible experience she had to go through at B&N, and poor girl can hardly give me any answers on their new HD+ tablet. I decided to come back the next day. Last Saturday event was the last straw. Oktoberfest in NYC (I know there are similar events in Boston and Vermont) - I anticipated to attend for long time in advance. The whole unlimited beer/food event was scheduled only for 2.5 hours. The setting was beautiful- in the middle century like castle/museum. I made a mistake to drive to NYC in her car. I was enjoying myself tremendously, talking to various people and having nice relaxing time. In the middle of my conversation with others, she tells me that she already seen it all, had several beers, nothing interesting, she would be much happier going to the mall ,and she wants to leave. That it is her car, and I have to be flexible. That she went to this event because of me. That was an embarrassing scene. I do not understand that urge to leave places within the hour the most, if you already made an effort and spend money to get there. I should have predicted that something like that could happened, based on the past history, but I did not. I think she was rather bothered by the fact that I enjoyed this event so much. I think the whole behavior was completely idiotic, rude, and tactless and pretty much ruined the whole otherwise wonderful day for me.
