- Wedding: April 2018
I love my gossipy husband, and the online gaming community at large right now, it’s the awesomest thing on EARTH!
For those who do not know, there was some recent unpleasantness in Nona’s life when in a moment of weakness, she offered to help the SO of her longest and best friend buy an engagment ring and propose on her birthday, he swore to pay her back, and while the ring itself wasn’t terribly costly, he totally punked out and started to duck Mr. 99 and I….the friend in question turned into a she-bitch of epic proportions and pulled some horrible things, like forgetting my birthday totally, taking me to a late birthday dinner, chastising me for standing up to my SIL just because we were both in her wedding party and then making me pay for dinner anyway….
Unfortunate for them…Nona is a relentless, tireless machine when it comes to something she wants…I wanted that money and I was not going to stop until I got it…after involving her parents and honestly haraunging him daily for two months…mind you, this was six months after they got engaged…a mysterious money order showed up…and after some investigation, we deduced it was for me….I cashed it and haven’t spoken to either of them since.
BUT….Mr. 99 is friends with a nephew of the Fiance in question and was playing online with him today…we found out that after hearing the tale of how they came upon her ring and the reason her former Maid/Matron of Honor has been MIA the entire engagement his entire family was so completely disgusted that they both got an earful from everyone about how horrible that was and how embarassed they should be….
THEN, we find out that several other bridal party members have unceremoniously dropped out of the impending wedding because of horrible treatment by the bride or groom or both…including but not limited to, disappearing from family functions, not taking calls, not returning calls, cussing people out, hanging up on people and *GASP* borrowing money and not paying it back…..
But the final coup on this amazingly horribly delightfully tragic vignette of failure…they announced on FB that she was expecting…however, the entirety of HIS family was unaware…but Mr. 99 brought it up figuring that since they broadcast the ultrasound on the internet, the only people that DIDN’T know where hiding under rocks….so yeah….they’ll probably be hearing from a lot of people about that this weekend…oops/
I know its mean spirited and petty to delight in the suffering and strife of others, but that woman was my friend of over 28 years….and she treated me to very terribly, ruined something I wanted to be special and lovely and then abandoned me when I needed a friend most….so I’m going to be a mean spirited and petty person today…because I’m not lying…THAT IS AMAZIN!
