You're just now saying this?

Saturday, June 09, 2012

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.

    Some people *shakes head*
    Well, I think the people you don't talk to often are just realizing that you aren't going to be available to just hang out anytime and are regretting the missed chances. I know I talk to old friends in passing and always feel regret about not spending more time with them.
    I hope your move goes well and you make tons of new friends in Oregon!

    Maybe for some of them it is honestly realizing that they didn't do something until now it feels like it is too late. Others might just be trying to say what they think is the polite way to wish you well.

    People are so weird! I think they think if they don't say something you'll be mad. Oh well. Chalk it up to people being people. Most of the time it makes no sense! Good luck on the move!

    They figured out too late that they had a diamond in their midst.

    One of the many reasons I am saying nothing to nobody.....I really don't want that to happen...I wouldn't be as nice as you were. Oh well that is why you are so special to me emoticon
