Bye bye bye!

I’m pretty sure everybody has those friendships that are really going to last like forever and ever and turns out they never do. Well, this is gonna be me venting about a situation like that. So I had this one friend, met in 8th grade. She was a transfer student, I was really a nobody so we became best friends. She was my go to person, I’d spend my days with her all the time in school, everybody knew we were super close. High School came, still best friends. Of course, high school was all about meeting new people and exploring who you were. She was the type of tomboy girl who was in ROTC and I was wanting to be popular, being involved with Class Officer stuff, wanting everybody to like me. We were the strange best friend combination in high school. I eventually got class historian position and would drag her to all my meetings which I knew she hated deep down because it involved “preppy kids”. I was in Pre-Ap classes, she was in advanced. I excelled at my classes and she really didn’t. During my Junior year, she ended up transferring to an alternative school for kids who were at risk of not graduating. We had made a promise that we were going to graduate together but that didnt happen. During my Junior year, I forgot all about her. I made new best friends to replace her, she made new friends. Graduation Day came. I remembered the promise we made. I saw kids from the alternative school show up because they graduated on time….but she wasnt there. Turns out, she still didnt get to pass her classes. So I graduated with my friends who weren’t behind. Fast forward a year later. I get a text from her telling me she’s finally graduating and she wanted me to go. Of course, I went. Ever since that day, we were inseparable. And I mean inseparable! We would go shopping together (I’d spend my money on both of us), go out to eat, go to the island, party, meet guys together, etc. My parents weren’t very fond of her being my friend. They thought she was a bad influence. Which she kinda was, she got me into smoking cigarettes, partying, rebelling against my family, and basically getting me to turn into the person I hated in high school. Eventually I got her a job at my workplace and we worked together for about 3 months. She ended up getting fired soon enough. Then something happened that my parents made me stop talking to her so much. We started to hang out less and less. Eventually she got a boyfriend who she bragged about ALL THE TIME to me. Then soon enough, she unfriended me on facebook one day, snapchat also, basically she removed me from her life. What did i do? Nothing. I did nothing to her, but I didnt really care that much because I know i did nothing wrong. Fast forward again to today: she texts me. She gave me a spare key to her house a long time ago but i never got to return it when we stopped talking. I was legitally going to burn it the other day. So she asks for the key back and i say yeah of course i can return it. I was going to return it right away so i can get it over with but then the chick says she isnt home right away and that she’ll be there in 2 hours. Of course, I didnt want to see her. I asked if i could drop it off at her mailbox but she made a big scene about it. She said she wanted it back face to face. Which was stupid either way. I got to her place and shes taking forever and a day to get out of her house and had her head down the ENTIRE TIME when i was returning the key. Like, what was the whole point of me seeing her face to freaking face if shes going to have her head down in shame? LOL. Its so dumb. But what I really learned at the end of the day, she wasnt a real friend. She used me for money and left the second she got a dude by her side. I know a true friend wouldnt leave me if she got a guy. She would include me in her life still but unfortunately, this chick wasn’t going to include me in anything. But I would like to thank her regardless, thank her for being there for me growing up and making me realize what a FAKE friend looks like. Hope you have a great life with your ugly dude, don’t call me in the future saying your pregnant or engaged saying you want me to be a part of your special day because I wont answer or go. I have found my true friends now who actually love me regardless if I have money or not. So in the words of NSYNC, “BYE BYE BYE!”
