Recently, my boyfriend got kicked off our slo-pitch team. By our friend *Ricky. Via email. The reason? He didn’t listen to him and do what Ricky told him to. *Ricky cited ONE MISTAKE as his example. The email was truly bizarre – clearly Ricky had some long standing issues with my boyfriend, but he never did talk to him about it other than passive-aggressively boss him around on the diamond. After reading the email I called them and left a message expressing my disappointment and asked them to call back. They never did.
My boyfriend and I have been socializing with Ricky and his fiancee *Sandy for over a year at that point, and we considered them good friends. We would go out to dinner, hang out and play Rock Band, we invited them camping and once they mentioned something about us witnessing their wedding. We didn’t know there was any issues between us, because no one told us! Ricky mentioned once that they feel they were the ones to ask us to do something, and that was it.
Needless to say, I told Ricky and Sandy I was no longer willing to play for them, considering how poorly and unprofessionally they treated my boyfriend. If you have an issue with a friend, show some respect and talk to them about it face to face. Or you can show your true colours and hide behind an email like this worm. 0724-10
