- Wedding: April 2014
So I’m fixing to boot my Maid/Matron of Honor. She’s been my longest friend I really thought I could trust her. We’ve been on a phone plan together for years: we were both single and it was just cheaper for both of us… or so I thought.
I just found out that for the past year and a half I have been paying her half of this bill (over $500), as well as another line in which that person gave her cash/check, and she pocketed it. She never let on that I was paying it and we talked EVERY day. Since I had never had this problem with her before, I didnt think anything of my payments being higher because I download a lot of stuff and figured I just needed to call and cancel subscriptions/apps etc. NOPE. I have all the evidence that she’s never attempted to pay her side, or even say “HEY IDIOT, YOU”RE PAYING MY HALF.” I’m just in shock. She has a history of getting money out of people (sugar daddy’s) by caliming destitution but I’m nothing like that and don’t judge and just let her do her thing.
THANKFULLY, this phone contract is NOT in my name, I am only an authorized user so I’m not responsible for anything. I just got on my own plan yesterday and will be sending my other device back to her to do with as she pleases. When I confronted her, she seriously played dumb and stated “Well, I send my payments in, so I’ll just have to check my bank accounts.” She played dumb and was oddly calm. Knowing her, if I accused her of doing something she didnt, she would’ve flown off the handle at me.
I’m sure she is justifying it in her head that since I had online access to the account and was paying it every month, surely I knew what I was doing. Not the case! I really thought that when I logged on with my number, I was pulling up only my bill. I know now, or course, this isn’t true. My supposed best friend hasn’t contacted me in three days. I have no idea how to handle this in a moralistic way.
Thanks for letting me vent and I appreciate any advice you have.
