Is she my REAL FRIEND or MEAN FRIEND?????

Today when I was coming back home by walking from my institute, my friend Tanu joined me. Then in the middle we met her cousin & she introduced me. Then he asked if we would like to have something from nearby restaurant. I said no, but Tanu forced me so we decided to have grapes juice. After finishing when we were leaving, her hand fell on a glass & it broke by falling down. During this her cousin was outside somewhere. When he came back & was paying for the glass broken, my friend stood near him & silently said she is saying sorry at which he was watching my face. My friend thought I didn't hear what she said, but I did. Then she took him aside & had few seconds talk & said to me we should leave now. On the way I asked her what she said to her cousin & she said laughing that nothing. I really became angry & shouted on her. Then she said her cousin is very strict so she said I broke the glass because I just met him that day only for the first time so he wouldn't say anything to me. My dad is also strict but that doesn't mean I blame my friend. She didn't ask me once before saying such a lie. I fought with her & decided never talk to her again. I was really hurt by what she did. Whats your opinion on this? Did I do the right thing?

You have done right thing by fighting with her but not talking at all is wrong decision I think. Just be away from here as much as possible as this type of people are never of anybody. But don't stop talking to her totally. Talk to her only when neccessary or needed.

Well, I think you were right to be angry at her action cuz her cousin probably thinks you are the clutz of the year. And you have to question what else she'd do and lay the blame on you. But I don't think that is enough to terminate a friendship over. Just tell her you don't appreciate it and if she does anything like that again then you'll have to re-think your friendship. Just watch her and if you feel you can't trust her, don't keep her as close. Don't dump her either, just keep her at arms-length. You never know what you might need her for in the future. Good luck.
