mm well one my best mates of six years assumed when i got engaged she was a bridesmaid, i went with it as she always has been a good friend. That was 8 months ago, shortly after, contact began dwindling between us. Her partner plays for the same football team as my Fiance so we were always at the same game’s, but she would sit in the car and not talk to anyone.. It got to the point where we hadnt talked in four months and she was not doing anything i asked her to do, eg: pick some shoes. One night i talked to her about and she said she loved me blah blah she’d do anything for me… and has not spoke to me since. 8 weeks till wedding, its a nightmare!!

That is just strange.  She sits in the car by herself.  Maybe she’s upset her partner hasn’t asked her yet?

Well I fired my would be bridesmaid from hell.  She was once one of my best friends since moving to ATL.  I btw, have never fired a friend before.

About 2 years ago she sadly had a miscarriage (I cried with her and am very sensitive to that kind of stuff as I had one too)but after that she was not the same woman at all.  She began being cruel to her hubby.  We’d be at a get together (T and I) and she’d just belittle him and yell at him.  We were worried about that.  My son and her son were bff’s at school since kindergarten so we had that vested interest also.  We hoped it was just a phase.

Fast forward.  She moved away january of 2009.  We gave them a going away party at a restaurant (had everybody meet up and bought them their dinners though) and I invited who she wanted on her guest list to attend.  We knew only a few other couples.  At the party, they talked to everybody else but us.  We were the host and hostess!  None of their other friends even bothered to speak to us except a hi.  It was more than rude.  Plus she sent her kids to sit down at the end of the table with us so we were kinda just stuck there.  And one of her rude friends moved all the centerpieces I made for the occasion and put them on the other tables so he could “see” better.  I was seething!

We were mad but let that one slide as it was Christmas.  They moved in January and she calls me to say she’s coming back in March to check on her home and to see me.  I thought maybe she was getting back to normal.  She calls me and asks if I can meet her at her house to help her clean (ie mop, sweep, scrub) and I have severe bronchitis, practically pneumonia and so does my son.  She then tells me that she’d check on me in a few days.  I found out later that she’d come in a day or two earlier, and had several nights out with her other friends (the girls from that party) and they’d gone to dinner, caught up and what did she want to do with me?  Catch up and rekindle our friendship over MOPPING?  Mopping and scrubbing bathrooms?  Um..NO!  She called the day before she left and asked if I felt up to meeting her to catch up and clean up.  I was still sick.  I said no.  And that if she wanted to catch up with me, she could have called me at any time rather than have a “meetup” for mopping.

I have never called her back after that.

I hated doing it.  Really did.  But did a “soft” fire as I just didn’t call her back.  That was in I think March???  So it’s six months later and not a peep.  And I like it this way.
