the psycho friend BLOW OFF


One of our LA readers at the blow off sent us a series of emails from herself and an ex-friend that we just had to share with you.

Here's the set up--- the good friend, let's call her JANE was moving away from LA and our reader, let's call her BETTY was planning a good bye dinner for her. When Jane flaked on the good bye dinner, she emailed and suggested rescheduling. The next day, before Jane had a chance to respond, she got another email from Betty bitching her out for not responding yet. (Side note, Jane is a new mom to a six month old son and responding to emails isn't exactly her first priority these days.) Jane wrote back and explained to Betty that she'd been busy with her baby and that unfortunately, she couldn't make the new time/date Jane had suggested for their dinner.

What followed was this response from Jane:

Our friendship has run it's (pathetic, one-sided) course.

I wish you the best of luck in all your future endeavors.

I certainly don't "hate your guts," but have filed you under "fair weather friend," which/whom I no longer have room for in my life.

End of discussion; no need to reply-- you're henceforth blocked.

Ciao!

WTF? Jane is a psycho-bitch! If you can't cut a new mom some slack, then you're the one being a shitty friend!

  1. whoa, that's crazy.

    although i will say that i do have my moments where i want to give friends the permanent blow off. while i don't sympathize with Jane, as it sounds totally blown out of proportion (pun intended), i wish i had the balls to write that sort of email.

    MOVE ON, BETTY! Good riddance!
