Catching up with Venus and Lydia after Sophia’s Birthday party left us with a lot to talk about. I’ve known Sophia since she was born so was really looking forward to being part of her Birthday celebrations. Venus had gone to a lot of effort to make her day fun. Lydia and I put thought into her Birthday gift and were so looking forward to giving it to her. Unfortunately that plan was ruined by Janet and her laughing henchmen when the gift was stolen and the card removed and fraudulently given to Sophia by Janet. Seriously Janet, if you forgot to get her a gift I would have happily put your name on the card. Instead, I’ll send you an invoice.
I’ve been disappointed by Janet over the years but I think she’s sunk to an all time low recently. Watching her chuckle away, then aggressively put her hand in my face while I’m talking, there’s clearly no respect left at all. The trust has gone which really doesn’t leave much. Without trust and respect there is no friendship.
Interestingly, Sally has come into this group claiming to be the anti-bully hero. I’ve watched her consistently laugh and applaud the most hideous behavior including her own. Not sure if she is severely misguided, however it’s pretty obvious that if someone asks you to leave them alone and they persist in pursuing a reaction from you, at all cost, that would be bullying at its finest. A bully will taunt someone until they get a reaction, then sit back and say “see, I told you she was a ….”. Classic case of the perpetrator playing the victim. I’ve asked Sally to leave me alone consistently. Hiding behind a vanilla ice persona she’s clearly excited about inciting a fight. Not cool Sally.
The reunion will be interesting. We can expect a lot of revelations about ulterior motives behind challenging behavior and no doubt things will get heated.
