I was hoping that you were going to come back to say she was just asking to find out how to fix it, and accidentally had come off as rude, but NOPE this girl is insane! Wow… some people.

Some people never fail to surprise 🙄 I’d send her a link to this thread and then cut all contact with her lol.

skier11 : I would just text her back, “Hey, friend! So sorry to hear that the picture frame broke. Here is the website I purchased it from. Their order time is X, so if you want it ASAP, I’d order it soon. Have a great honeymoon!”

Your restraint is admirable, OP.

You were so lovely! 

I’ve found with some (crazy, entitled) people, if you come across as at all apologetic or understanding, they jump on that and assume they are in the right.

Get mad. Seriously. I bet bees on here can think of an amazing, biting response for her last text. Then use it ! I bet she backs down.

or she doesn’t and good riddance! You’ve gotten rid of a terrible, selfish, crazy “friend”

skier11 :  You should text her back and tell her it’s not your fault her new husband can’t hold a fragile object. Hopefully he’s more careful when they have kids. Haha.

OP, glad to see you are dropping her. That “friendship” isn’t worth it anymore, time to cut some ties.

skier11 :  You have some serious restraint. I would point out once again, you gave a gift -she broke it. You had a friendship- she broke it. Bye bye girl

Given your update I feel kinda bad for her new husband (although he did sign up for that mess). Can you imagine being married to that attitude for every birthday and Christmas? Yikes.

Sorry you didn’t see her true nature until after the wedding. But it doesn’t sound like you will be missing much cutting this crazy out of your life.
