I’ve never been this depressed ever, and I simply don’t want Christmas, don’t want to see Christmas, just want to forget everything and everyone, and vanish.

Yesterday, I got an sms from a friend who I knew was out Christmas shopping with friends which said: Do you want to come join us for a drink?

I phoned up to ask where they were meeting up and got a cocky: Yes, YES, what on earth do you want!?

Trying to explain that I just wanted to check where they were to meet, I got a:
What are you, funny, at my place, of course?

How I was supposed to know, I have no clue, the sms didn’t say where they were or heading.

Stupid as I was I joined them, and sat in the kitchen there was a little book on the table. I picked it up and casually looked through it, from the same person I got a: “Be careful with that, it’s a Christmas present!”. I replied with a calm: “Oh, OK”, put it down and instantly got a: “Oh, don’t overreact, and what’s so wrong giving that as a present?”
I was clueless.

Then another person walks in and asks what the argument is about. I hadn’t uttered a word beyond those mentioned above. I said that I wasn’t sure, but felt it wasn’t really fair, I mentioned that earlier when I’d called them to see where they were to meet, I’d been responded to like I was interrupting or getting in the way, a bit rude, upon which I was told, by the very same person asking: “Oh, why don’t you just drop it.”
I said: “Eh, but you asked, and no problem, we can drop it right now”
Upon which I was told by the hostess that I could leave right away if I was to try and be rude.
I wasn’t drunk, was completely calm, and didn’t nag or feed the discussion.

Things didn’t escalate into anything, there was no big argument or loud voices, I let it rest and we carried on. A huge nagging feeling was there, I felt like leaving, but we behaved adult and had a good evening. Then, later in the evening, when the other persons had left, asking me if I wanted a ride the hostess tells them that “oh no, he doesn’t have to leave”, just a few minutes later, out of the blue the hostess tells me: “I think it’s best you leave, because we’ll just end up fighting”. Then she goes to bed.

How the fuck do you respond to that?
We hadn't had any discussions or arguments, we'd been sat watching a film on TV.

I ask her if she’s serious, don’t get a reply, sit down for a couple of minutes, confused and utterly surprised, call a cab and head home, sad as I’ve seldom been. Never felt so unwelcome in my life. Then I get a long SMS explaining that I’m the rudest of friends and have behaved like a prick because I didn’t stick around. That she had started to cry when I left, and that instead of me acting grumpy, leaving, I should have stayed.

Grumpy? I was devastated when I left the place. I felt like someone had stepped all over me, toyed with me.

I haven’t slept more than a couple of hours, this whole day is shite and the rest of Christmas will be. Boo-fucking-hoo to you to Satan Clause! Stick your Christmas up a reindeer bum.

I think you need some new friends.

Merry Christmas and a hug, Z.

You to, FF.

I could use some heavy uppers, because as down as I feel, I've never been before.

Is it that mad woman we all told you not to bang?

But, yeah, what FF said. That sort of relationship is not friendship. Don't regard these people who fucked with you as friends, and don't let them hurt you. I'd cut them out of my life, but I'm not saying you should. But I'd certainly keep them at arm's length.

Maybe she was weird because she really digs you. If so, RUN!

Jeez, Z, I thought this was going to be about Dida. . .

But what everyone else said. Friends don't treat friends in that fashion. In fact, decent people don't treat perfect strangers in that fashion.

Don't let her issues ruin your holiday. There are lots of people (on here and elsewhere) who value your friendship and care a great deal about you.

And I promise you will get your flags in January. They should cheer you up.

Merry Christmas, we all look forward to seeing you in 2008.

Cheers all

Doesn’t feel any better this morning, so many things going through my mind and a yoke of sad feelings.

I’m trying to see any logic or reason in the behaviour, and all I can conclude is that this was a planned out way to alienate me. Thing is, I don’t call this person, I get the calls. I’m always the one being asked to come over, not the other way around.

It’s all so weird that it actually feels unreal. I got a phone call which was nothing but one big yelling at me for leaving when asked to leave, with some proper odd bits thrown in. One was “you think that you’re so damn kind, well, you’re not”.

Never in my life, and absolutely not to this person, have I ever claimed to be any more kind than the next person, or even kind at all. That would be an odd claim to make, and I think it’s a blasphemy even among atheists.

If we had even had a discussion where I had mentioned something I’ve done for someone, or like to do for people, or anything remotely close to it, so that it could have been interpreted as if I held this opinion about myself, but never. I don’t like to talk about myself that way.

I also got a proper bollocking for claiming that all pregnant women are stupid. A thing I, of course, have never said or thought. See, one of the guests who was there is pregnant, we were having a short chat about mood changes and how people who drink can change mood. I jokingly said: Hahaha, to hear a pregnant woman talk about people’s mood changes.

The phone call ended with: “Don’t call me again, I don’t want to meet you”
Eh, I wasn’t the one calling.

And of course, there’s the follow up SMS hours later which is totally mad. As if nothing happened. “Have a great Christmas with your family, don’t think too much about what happened…. ” bla bla bla

The crap thing is that I know the only proper and at the same time completely wrong thing to do today is to get mighty drunk.

Drunk to forget, but when I wake up tomorrow it will all be so much worse, the sadness, and booze on days like these is not the route to go, but I think it might end up being the only way to go.

Oh, and thank you ursus, but don't forget before you send anything that you must tell me how much I owe. I'm serious. You've already given me enough stuff.

Oh my God, all this sounds completely insane. I think G is right, there's nothing to do but avoid these people. Ignore them.

I sympathise; Christmas is a really depressing time. Come on here and talk to friendly people. By all means have a drink, I certainly intend to survive on alcohol; but, you know, alternate drinks with treats like chocolate or hot baths or whatever.

Then, later in the evening, when the other persons had left, asking me if I wanted a ride the hostess tells them that “oh no, he doesn’t have to leave”

That means something different in Ireland

And as you said, ursus: “Friends don't treat friends in that fashion. In fact, decent people don't treat perfect strangers in that fashion.”

This is what’s bugging me most. For some stupid reason I want to know what I’ve done, because you simply don’t tell a person to leave in those words unless the persons has done something. But here, one second we’re chatting about Polish Christmas food, the next it’s “take a hike”

And I am the cruel one for not understanding that something else was meant after I left? Not leaving in a rage or rushing out the door, calmly and quietly.
Even if I wasn’t supposed to leave, there is some truth in that request. Either you want me to leave, or you don’t but want to fuck with my mind, or you’re putting me to some cruel test, or something. It’s just not normal to ask someone to leave then have a fit when the person does.

And when will women stop thinking that men can read minds? Is this a hard concept to grasp, the concept of men not being able to read minds? We’re crap at understanding when you’re straight out telling us. There are whole TV shows, millions are being made by TV hosts where they talk about nothing else than how men often don’t understand what a woman wants, and at the same time we’re believed to be able to read minds?

In this case, PPV, I think you could have been Detective Matt off "Heroes" and not have been able to make head nor tail of this woman's mind. She sounds like a complete nutjob.
