When will people learn.....

Sunday, April 21, 2013

The other night instead of eating alone I asked a friend who was also alone to join me for dinner, which I occasional do. When he asked what he could bring I politely declined and assured him I had plenty. He proceed to say he would bring dessert and I told him I was really watching my blood sugar so please don't bring it. He knew this was my top health priority because I had explained it several times to him before. Well he showed up with a turtle cheesecake and 2 ice cream bars and he was laughing about it. I really got mad but held my tongue and thanked him and put it in the refrigerator for him to take BACK home with him . I really couldn't enjoy my meal and was thinking I would never invite him back again. He just kept saying a little would not hurt me and laughing. We are very informal so when he went to the kitchen to get more tea I didn't think too much about it. I was just about to go and see what was taking him so long when he came back with 2 desserts of cheesecake and the ice cream on the side. He told me I could eat it anyway. I saw red!!!! I very quietly took the plate from him and when he sat down I stood up and dumped it on his head. I told him to get out and threw the rest of the cheesecake at him in the yard (it didn't hit him either). I didn't realize that the neighbors next door were outside and witnessed the whole thing until I heard them laughing. I went back inside. I was so embarrassed. Was that the end? Oh no... The police showed up about an hour later because he had called them and said I assaulted him!!! By the time I finished my side of the story and they talked with my neighbors, the 2 police officers were laughing so much I was afraid they would fall down. Anyway they told me not to worry and they left. I think everyone should learn a lesson from this but I still think he got what he deserved. He sent flowers the next day and they were thrown out in the yard too. Did I react too strongly to the situation? I think my blood sugar was off.

    Maybe a tad bit extreme, but now you know where he stands. Next time invite a friend who supports your healthy lifestyle. I think I would have thrown it in the trash in front of him and said nothing more.

    Well I think that reaction was definitely a bit too strong, but I see why you're mad. People who want to sabotage your health are not good people to have in your life.
