I have some of the greatest friends in the world. They make me feel adored constantly. A few of them are calling me daily to hang out before I leave for Oregon. When they say they're sad I'm going, I believe them.
But I'm getting a bunch of people that talk to me maybe about once a year that are saying "I'm going to be so sad when you go. We need to hang out." You are? Lol we don't talk other than facebook so why would you be sad? And I've asked you to come hang out with me dozens of times and you always had an excuse. I'm not saying I'm upset with them. I just think it's funny.
Last night people were coming to my machine at work to ask me how my trip to Oregon went and make sure we're ok with moving supplies and stuff. About half way into the night, one of the guys that I'm sure was part of my car getting keyed comes up to me and says "I really wish you and I had more time to become better friends but I know you'll enjoy Portland." Dude, you keyed my car. If that was an act of wanting to be friends you're doing it wrong. I just smiled and said "Yah, I really liked Oregon. It was nice working with you, thank you for stopping by."
Then a few hours after him, a guy that has NEVER said anything to me says he heard I was moving and it would have been nice to hang out more. WE NEVER TALKED! I had a good giggle after that one.
The people that really mean "I'm going to miss you" are making sure that I know. I just really don't know how to react to people that want to finally get to know me right before I leave. We had years to hang out.
I really hope this didn't come out as a negative read. I really do think it's all funny.
