To me, being called ‘selfish’, is one of the most ignorant statements one person can say about me (aside from being called cheap, which I also hate). Whether it’s a serious claim or a joke, that’s such an asshole thing to label me as.
This past weekend, my good friend proposed to his soulmate. It was a beautiful moment and I was grateful to even witness that. It was also my birthday weekend in which I was honored to have that happen that same weekend. I had no problem with that whatsoever because birthdays happen yearly (fucking duh) but taking a couple’s relationship to another level happens once in a lifetime.
So joking around, saying that I was butt hurt that they stole my spotlight (what spotlight?), making me selfish, really is an asshole move. What makes a joke funny is that there are some truths behind them. There were zero truths behind that joke, which made that joke offensive and uncalled for.
What’s worse is that moments after that proposal, they personally said sorry to me that this happened during the dinner because of that joke. Are you kidding me? There’s really no need to apologize because again, I had no problem with that. But I feel terrible now because the whole night I felt the pity, because the beautiful couple thought of the truth behind that joke (thanks to you).
Coming from a sports perspective, they tell players to be bigger than the moment. In this case, you sometimes have to let the moments be bigger than you. I believe I did just that. But you didn’t.
That being said, eat a dick asshole and meme that you fucking bitch.
