I’m having one of those days where I feel like I’m taking crazy pills. Like I must be the looney one for having a sane/rational thought in my head while everyone around me gets worked up over NOTHING.
I play in a recreational sports league. It’s informal, it’s sponsored by a bar, it’s nothing crazy. There’s a core group of us who play on the same teams each session and it’s sort of an unwritten thing that we all sign up when the team is formed. Being the Type A person I am, I am often the one who forms the team.
So last Wednesday, I set up our team for the most recent session. I didn’t send out a mass text or facebook message, but as I saw people, I let them know that the team was set up and to spread the word to the usual suspects.
Friday night, I was out with friends for a birthday party and some of them I hadn’t seen in a while. This sports league was not the first thing on my mind, believe it or not. So when one of my friends comes running up to me asking why she didn’t get the invite this time around, I was kind of annoyed! I told her that of course she was invited, that I JUST set the team up and to sign up as soon as she could so we could get a head count.
Fast forward to today – she emails me asking if I am SURE it’s okay that she signs up since she “didn’t get the invite this time” …
Really? I am certainly not in the mood to coddle and cater to stupid sh*t like this, so I responded and said “Oh will you please give it a rest about ‘not getting the invite’?” and reiterating that we already had this conversation on Friday and to just sign up!
She wrote back saying that she was “just trying to be nice” about it, and since I sent an invite out last session, when she heard about it from a friend of ours who is ALWAYS joking around, he said to her “oh, if you didn’t know about it, they must not want you on the team” and she took him seriously.
She went on to say that I’ve been very short with her and that she is going to give me a breather from her for a while, that she’s just paranoid because my husband (they work together) teases her when she whines to him about me not answering her text messages, saying that it must be because I don’t like her (he’s JOKING, he jokes like that all the time with all of his friends).
She finished the email saying that she didn’t want compliments or sympathy, but thinks she’ll just stick to the other sport in the league this session so that she doesn’t feel like she’s annoying or forcing her friends to hang out with her.
I’m too old for this sh*t.
