When people refuse to style up!

You know that one person in a clique that everybody seems not to like? You don’t have one? Yeah, it’s probably you then! I’ve had all sorts of friends – the great ones, the not-so-great ones and the absolute kick-you-in-the-crotch, spit-on-your-neck frustrations!

You know that one person in a clique that everybody seems not to like? You don’t have one? Yeah, it’s probably you then! I’ve had all sorts of friends – the great ones, the not-so-great ones and the absolute kick-you-in-the-crotch, spit-on-your-neck frustrations!

Their shrewdness is almost admirable. The weirdest part is that even with all that negative energy around them, a part of them still wants to be liked. They will act like you have been BFF’s since you popped out of your mother’s womb, but will stop at nothing to piss you off.

One chick I knew back in the day had the whole “I’m here to stir up some drama” thing going on. If she wasn’t making up stories, she was busy remixing versions she had heard. In short, the woman was a total and utter waste of perfectly good human space!

I’ve never known anyone who within 30 minutes has already assured you about a reputation you didn’t even know you had, told you about a mutual friend’s sterile ways and also how another mutual friend got drunk at a party and sort of lost control with his bladder! The second she walks away, all you can think about is how funny the story about you will be when she bumps into someone else!

If you are crazy enough to add captions to her stories, best believe that the next time you hear the story; it would have originated from you – according to her at least! Recently I received a Facebook friend request, but not before she had clogged my inbox with stories of a girl we used to know whose uterus has been so active, her house literally seems like a day care centre.

“What is she doing having all those kids? Is she mad?” she asked in the message that seemed more like an essay. No she’s not mad, you twit! She’s married and has a great job, something you’ll never get if you keep running your mouth off like that, I wanted to tell her. If she wants 40 kids, it’s her uterus really. I’m not looking to adopt so I don’t see how telling me about a truck of kids is significant.

I did myself a favour and declined the request! I mean I could excuse that behaviour back in the day but if years later, instead of talking about issues that actually build you in some sort of way, you are still ranting on about nothing but hogwash, you have some serious issues! Style up already!
