My husband is really tenderhearted and he believes the best in people to a point. He likes "John" much more than he likes "Sally" and I agree. He thought "John" had more integrity that "Sally". (I believe this is true, but I do not think that is saying much). He believes in giving people an extra chance. He saw everything that went on and said that as soon as "Sally" walked into the house he could tell something was not right with her. After the fact we got into a huge argument about why we went in the first place, etc. Also, he told me he wanted to leave too and he wishes he were more aggressive in getting us out of that horrible situation. Now after that horrible mess we have established a code. "I'm getting a migraine" though I like the "I have already been to Junior High" code the best myself.
Funny that someone mentioned text messaging someone to call with an emergency. I tried that with a couple of friends but it backfired that particular night. Now I wonder what to do when I see this couple again. My hubby is in graduate school with this couple (scary, huh?) and they graduate in May. They always have a lunch every year for the graduates. I am afraid I will not even be able to tolerate a friendly hello after all of this baggage. Any suggestions? Is putting a whoopee cushion in their chairs considered to be in poor taste? Ha!
