My matron of honor just called me. I guess, since Wes and I are already married, the flight to Virginia (because we offered to pay for the hotel) is just too much for a couple who makes $150,000 a year. Especially since they pay $1,200 a month in rent, only have one car payment and no student loans. Yeah, I can see how those plane tickets would be a stretch. I don't even know what to say. Especially since she's going to a destination wedding in Hawaii next month: for a co-worker. Opinions? I am proud of myself though, because I knew this was going to happen (Wes said there was no way she would do this), and I didn't ask her if the real issue was because I married Wes and not money. I am really pissed though. Especially since she offered to come out some other time to visit. I guess this just shows who your real friends are.
After sleeping on this, I'm seriously considering dropping her as a friend. She's always been high maintenance. Sometimes she would quit talking to me because "you know what you did." I didn't and I'm not a mind reader. Or three. She's very much a take, take, take friend. And, if you don't remember, when I told her that Wes was interested in me, her reply was "he's just interested in you because I'm not available." Hence the fact that I think this has little to do with finances and more to do with Wes. Do I just let it fade: never answer her calls or return them? Or do I tell her that I honestly think she's a bitch and have only maintained the friendship because she's constantly telling me she doesn't have any other friends and is not having any luck making new friends, so I felt sorry for her (and yes, this is the truth: I've discussed it with Camille). There are good things about her, but I don't think they outweigh the bad at this point. I have too much good stuff going on in my life to drag around crap like this. I guess I have made up my mind, but now I just have to figure out how to do it.
