Foot in mouth disease.

I have a case of foot in mouth disease.

First let me say that I don't think I have many haters or enemies. If I do they are kind enough to be nice to my face.

I ran into an old friend at the grocery store. This old friend really, really dislikes me. She thinks I did something towards her, against her, to her...whatever. Any ways whatever it is, I didn't do it. She has totally misunderstood the whole situation.

When she saw me I said hello. She turned beat red and said "oh great, this is my luck day." I sorta approached her to maybe have the chance of a reasonable conversation. She started talking very loudly to draw attention. She was saying that she would never forgive me, don't even think it will ever be the same, and that I have betrayed her.

I don't hate her. I feel sorry for her. I do wish we could talk. So, I tried to talk. When I did..I screwed it up BAD! Of all the things I could have said....I said the wrong thing. I feel like such a heel. What a jerk. Instead of maybe having a chance to make things civil I made it worse. I totally added fuel to her fire. I could just kick myself. I ruined my opportunity to make a moment of peace.

Great. Now what? Don't you ever wish you could do a conversation over? Don't you ever play the "I shoulda' said" game?

Do I send a card or something? I probably should just forget it. It's really over with now.

Thanks for reading my rant.

M ~ you know how I feel about this situation! She's not the kind of friend you need in your life after what went down. And she continutes to beat it over your head every time you try and make things right. She's got issues, you don't! The worst part is, you see that it doesn't have to be this way but she can't. So move on, smile as if she were a complete stranger, and don't give her even one more second of your time! You're better off without her. Besides, you'll always have me! : )

I have had some pretty bad foot in mouth moments. None as bad as the time I was talking to this girl I barely new about a friends boyfriend. I was mentioning how I didn't know what she saw in him, that he was so unattractive and had a HUGE nose and that he was a total jerk. She looked at me in silence for a few moments before saying... I am married to his twin brother, IDENTICAL twin brother.
