- Wedding: October 2009
who hasn’t known me most of my life. I always wanted to marry someone I didn’t know most of my life, but I did just that. The hubs and I have known each other for about 14 years, and we have been intertwined in each other’s lives due to mutual friends the whole time. He dated a girl for 4 years before me, they split up cuz he found out she was cheating on him and he kicked her out of their apartment (she had been cheating on him with different guys almost their whole relationship). We ended up together a few months after that, and every time she got into a fight with that guy, she ran back to hubs, once while we were dating. Needless to say, we didn’t stop speaking on good terms (nothing happened between her and hubs, but I know she would have tried).
That was about 6 years ago, and we haven’t really spoken since. An ex mutual friend passed away on tuesday, we found out through fb. I got a message on fb from my used to be best friend saying that ex wanted us to know that this guy died, which was fine. But then I find out that ex goes out of her way to get my FILs number (from ex best friend bf) and calls him during the workday to talk to my husband (they work together). All of this just to tell him about a guy he hasn’t been friends with in 10 years cuz he had a huge drug problem which ultimately killed him?? He said he was on the phone with her for less than a minute, and after she told him and he said he already knew and wouldn’t be going to the funeral (lots of people we no longer associate with due to various reasons will be there, and we don’t want any drama or to see them) and then he hung up on her.
So I wrote ex best friend back, and told her we already knew and wouldn’t be going, and to ask the ex to not call my husband again and lose my fil’s number. I was not being bitchy, but I guess since it was written she couldn’t tell my tone, and she got really ignorant when she wrote me back, so I got ignorant back at her. Maybe I shouldn’t have, but she just fueled my fire.
Just wanted to vent. Sometimes history is great, but other times it just causes unnecessary drama!!
I realize that reading this on the outside it does sound kind of pointless for me to get mad, but there is a whole, whole lot that I am not adding for privacy.
