Well, last nite we went to dh's cousin's. We had a nice supper and then went into living room. Next thing I knew she had viciously verbally assaulted me. Both my dh and hers sat there and said nothing. Then she asked if we still wanted to play cards. I was in shock and asked dh to respond. So, we played cards... very uncomfortably. Her dh had picked us up, otherwise, I would have gone to my car and left immediately. She noticed that I was in obvious pain and her attitude totally changed and she wanted to take me to the hospital etc. etc. Anyway, her dh drove us home and it was uncomfortable in the car as well.
When we got in house, dh and I had a very long discussion. He had no idea what had happened either. I think our friendship is more than over. She is a very unstable woman, and these 2 weak men did nothing and I was so blindsided, I allowed her to bully me. Why does this always happen to me? Trying to ever find positives in all situations, at least we won't have to listen to her preach JW at us anymore.
Similar things like this have happened to me too numerously this past couple years. Here I think I am being nice and people think they can walk all over me...
This a.m, I got a call from the job I thought I would be starting at as soon as the funding came through. She requested that I come for a further interview at 1, it was 11 at the time. When I got there, I was introduced to a 3rd person, and then verbally had the job description read to me. Then I was requested to basically Stand and Deliver. I had to do a bank reconciliation, a pay stub and complete a government remittance form... all off the cuff and without sufficient information. I requested the information I needed and successfully completed the required jobs... She said they would let me know by day's end.
So about an hour and a half later, I got a call from the 3rd person, I had met only today, and she was informing me that someone else had been selected for the job. Then she was very nice and offered me contact information for 2 other possible job contacts. I have never had this done before.
It's been a bad day.
But, I did make us a very nice supper. I made a lamb meatloaf with a thai Sidekick noodle, and mashed turnip and carrots with onion greek yogurt mashed in, and a pea salad.. It was all delicious. Good thing I can treat myself well, cuz it seems like the world is taking their shots at me.
