Ok this is a chance for us to whine..... complain...... grumble..... about a pet peeve... Here's the thing.. I have a friend.... And I use the erm loosely that says 'I told ya so' at least once in every conversation!! Some days when I see her # on the id I just do NOT answer. Do you know someone like that? xoxoxoxoxo

'I told ya so' friend would probably drive me a little bonkers too, raydene. I can understand just not picking up the phone once in a while when you know it is her. I'll take your invitation to complain...... the friend (term used loosely as well)that gets to me is one who seems to think her troubles are all that matter. I have grown to not even expect to find a listening ear in her when ever we are together, yet she dumps all her troubles on me. Our sons are friends and in the same activities so we see each other often. My complaint: recently while waiting for our sons to finish a class they take together, I carried a book to read and explained to her that I had book club meeting that evening and was trying to finish the book before then. Well, she interupted my reading no less than 3 times by asking questions about things that she knows matter to me. In my head I'm thinking "NOW??, after I, as politely as I could, excused myself from discussion today, NOW you want to talk to me about me" Arrrggg. I was terribly annoyed!!

Of course she did. It is inevitable. She knows which buttons to push on you. I hope you had a good time at the book club.

Thanks for the best response, raydene. I was reading The Girl In The Red Coat by Roma Ligocka. A nice book that allowed for good discussion.

I do not have any friends like that. I know someone who is always right and always knows everything. I avoid her when possible. Right now, it is not completely possible. I do not answer the phone when I recognize her number either.

I don't have friends like that, just relatives. Relatives are forever, friends can be replaced, fortunately If I had a friend who did that to me, that person would not be my friend for very long. Why waste emotional energy on someone who is only going to treat you like that? As for the relatives that do, on occasion, I thank God every day for my call display.

Morning, raydene....there are weeds in my flowerbeds...weeds in my garden...AND WEEDs in my life! Just like my gardens, my life is a permanent weeding flower bed, whenst I eliminate the things that don't give me pleasure, or use up the nutrients that I need to grow! In otherwords, raydene, I do..ceremoniously rid my life of the "told you so's"...the "needies & clingies"....the "I gotta walk on egg shells when around you." people from life ..in order that I grow. Sounds harsh, but in my realm..if I don't do this, I waste good energy..and good thots on bad things! Cheers!
