@frommisstomrs.:  How about not saying anything and limiting your contact with such a petty and rude individual…the surplus or lack of funds is never grounds to refute or dimish the joy of another….I would just stop being available for any activity with this woman…how awful!

She sounds like a brat who wants to keep you below her.

you should have said “yes, it’s real.  it’s really on my hand, it’s not an optical illusion!”

 

what was she disputing?  a “real” blue topaz, “real” sterling silver?  what was her point?  she had no point so she just shouldn’t have said anything.

@frommisstomrs.:  maybe you can tell her that sheiks being rude. Ask her if she would like it if you would do that to her.

@frommisstomrs.:  Then I have no suggestion other than telling her how awful that made you feel…I can’t imagine having a “friend” do something so mean to me….

yea, her comment was rude enough but grabbing it and tapping on it, excessive.

Sorry, but I think the time to have said anything biting back would have been while the incident actually happened.  To say anything now would seem kind of petty – your friend sounds like the kind of person who wouldn’t even remember/care that she was in the wrong.  

That was really bitchy of her though!

@Nona99:  I agree about limiting contact. I know you said that you’ve been friends for a long time, but if she’s like this about something like this then I can’t imagine how stuck up she would be about more important issues.

I have a friend that I’ve known since I was 3 and its pretty similar. Her father is a very narcissistic individual and the whole family is very competitive and kind of snobbish. My friend isn’t naturally a competitive person, but she has deep insecurities from growing up in this environment.

My point is, that I understand. She’s very similar. But I have to limit my contact. She is otherwise a great person, but I don’t know how involved I can have her in my life when she is snobby and judgmental about almost everything. You have to look after yourself… who you are is very much determined by who you associate yourself with. You deserve to have positive, supportive friends. Your friend isn’t a bad person – she just has some issues she needs to work through.
