Ever have one of those days where things are going pretty well, and someone sits down next to you and starts complaining about how stupid their day's been, and your immediate thought is, "Oh don't even start with me unless you'd like to hear about the last five months."? Yeah, I feel sorry that you're having a bad day, but please don't start trying to one-up me. It's not worth my time, and I'm gonna throw what little sympathy I have for you out the window if you start. We all have crappy days. Get over it and move on.
Even better: What happens when you actually try helping said person? You listen to them bitch and moan, offer bits and pieces of advice, and all of a sudden they stop venting at you and turn around and take it out on you. Suddenly you're a verbal punching bag, and yet, somehow, they still expect you to have sympathy for them.
Hum, lemme think about this no. I am here to help you if you need it. I am NOT here for you to take out every one of your problems on, nor do I enjoy being verbally abused. Turn around, stop acting like a highschool girl and gossiping behind peoples' backs, and just do your freaking job. You're 33 years old, man. Life is shit some days, and yes, you have to work with people you don't like. Deal with it. Don't take it out on me and expect me to be all BFF with you five minutes later. I'm not here to be taken advantage of. I'm here to help sort through the problems, not sit in the corner and fuel your gossip. I say what NEEDS to be said, not want you WANT to be said.
Also. If, you know, we're going out to dinner with the entire cast and crew, we all sit together. That's how it works. We might get there first, sure, but when the others get there and want to combine tables and actually TRY to be friends, and you're acting like a little grumpy girl and completely ignoring them? Not cool. Not cool AT ALL. They're trying. Don't complain about them if you're not willing to try.
Long story short: get the hell over yourself. If they're offering to help find a solution, take it. You don't have the right to complain if you aren't even going to try and make the situation better. I'll walk out on you without a second thought, and that's that. I'm not going to help someone who isn't even going to try and help himself. I'm sick of being your punching bag. I'm sick of not being listened to. I'm sick of watching you fall on your face when the entire thing could have been avoided if you had just taken my advice at the beginning. You said it before that you should have. Why are you repeating the same mistake now?
I'm done. Over it. I'll be there the next two weekends because I gave my word that I would work the show. I am NOT doing this as a personal favor to you. I am NOT going to listen to your gossip. I spoke my mind to you about this once already, and you still won't listen.
Go ahead, then. Continue acting like a highschool girl. When it all comes crashing down (AGAIN), don't even bother to turn and see if I'm there saying, "I told you so."
I'll be long gone.
The only problem with this entire thing is that I won't be gone, because SOMEHOW I will STILL end up trying to help you. Just, please, stop with all the verbal abuse. I'm your friend, not a dart board.
