- Wedding: October 2012
Ladies I need some help with something. I have an old friend who I will call smedly that I have known for years and years. I haven’t seen her in a whille though she lives very close to me. I think it’s been 2 years since we actually hung out and who knows how long since we talked on the phone. Recently I reached out to her with a phone call and said hey we should catch up give me a call! Nothing. So then I get an email from her inviting me to a concert on Labor day of this year. She had an extra ticket and said it was no big deal if I couldn’t go. I told her I thought I could go then realized now might not be the best time to spend 150 on a concert with the wedding so soon. So I emailed her that I was really sorry but I couldn’t go and I hope she understood. No reply. Then she posts randomness on Facebook about how she doesn’t understand people and she only loves her dog because people are so awful. Blah blah blah. This is typical for her. So I sent her a text asking how she was doing- nothing. So I gave up.
A few years ago a good friend had a baby. I am her godmother. Our friend invited everyone to the church for the baptism but only close family was invited to the luncheon after. Smedly had a hissy fit of epic proportions that she was not invited to the luncheon though it had been years since she had talked to the baby’s mom complete with crying, stomping, etc again turning to Facebook to post cryptic messages about how people suck, I don’t understand people etc.
I’m struggling if I should invite her to the wedding and the shower. The shower invites went out already but I still have wedding invites to mail. I feel kind of obligated but then I’m thinking if you can’t return a phone call or even bother- then clearly your not interested in keeping in touch. Anyone have any suggestions on how to handle? Should I even bother
