I’ve been friends with this girl for 2 years we met at my current job. We hit it off right away because of our love for old movies and comic books. Everything we do lately I feel like revolves around her. And last night she made it clear that it does. I work Monday through Friday between 40 to 60 hours a week. I’m finally at a place where I love my job and everything and I’m a devout Catholic. Last night she asked me to go to a midnight showing almost an hour away after working from 8:30 until about 7 on a Friday night. I explained to her that right after work I had to get to church and then I was going to be too tired to make the movie. I didn’t want to drive after working all day and being in church an hour and a half for a midnight movie when I know I wouldn’t enjoy it because Id be too tired. She started cussing me out and telling me I wasn’t a good person and a good friend because I wasn’t doing what she wanted. While I suggested going to the movies by herself might be fun she told me to go blank myself. This girl is spoiled rotten. She went to two universities dropped out of on moved from Michigan to Maryland back to Michigan her parents pay for her to go to boarding school because she didn’t like the “clicks off Public School’ she’s so spoiled her parents even offered to buy her a house and pay for the utilities for the first 10 years of owning it. So you can imagine when I told her I couldn’t make the movie she was irate and I’d never seen anyone like it. My question is do you guys think I made the right move? I feel like the last 6 months have been pure hell with her because the minute she’s on happy she burst into tears and claims I don’t give a care about her needs. When I was going through hard time with my family or I simply need to talk about a rough day she’ll intentionally shut her phone. I feel deep down I made the right move because I don’t want to go the rest of my life being her service person like her parents are. What do you guys think of? Mind you she lives an hour and a half away.

‘I feel like the past 6 months have been pure hell with her’
No, no, no. No friendship should feel like hell.
You don’t need this shit. Say goodbye to this ‘friend’.

You definitely did the right thing!
Friendship is a two-way street and it sounds like she wants it to be very one sided. Don’t put yourself through that, it’s not worth it. After working such a long week and going to church afterwards, it’s understandable that you wouldn’t be up to a long drive to watch a late night film (I’m exhausted just thinking about it). A good friend should understand that, not cuss you out.
I can understand the second guessing yourself too. When things are good, they can be great, but is it really worth the stress of not being what she deems a good friend?

Your FRIEND makes your time feel “like hell”? I thought it was enemies who did that.

I was goi through a hard time both at work and at home and she was there when I needed to talk lately. it’s all about her. I once walk around a comic book convention try to meet her and she blamed me. I was there at ten she didn’t come until 1pm.

She is not a friend. I’m surprised you spoke to her for as long as you did. She sounds awful. She would be gone from my life without a second thought.

Cut the fat. I used to have terrible friends in my early 20s and one of the best things I ever did was ending those friendships. They caused me stress and unhappiness and who has time for that? You certainly don’t. Don’t even feel bad.

happycomelately : things might get really awkward at work, but you definitely made the right decision. People cannot go around cussing each other out and expect to have friends that is completely ridiculous.

Unfriend her. Life is too short to put up with people like this. She is not a real friend. Friends should be people you enjoy being around and you can have a good time with and they care about you. As I got older, I had to drop friends that stressed me out and I had no desire to be around them anymore. Too much drama. Believe me, it’s for the best when you’re no longer in contact with them!

Umm no, you need to end this asap.

She’s a toxic friend. “Friends” who give you this much stress should be cut out to save your sanity. My life has been sooo much better once I walked away from toxic people!
