I live out of state and am getting married next summer back home. I was just home this past week for a visit and had dinner with a friend of mine. This friend is someone who I can stand to be around for about 2 hours every 4 or 5 months and then I've had my fill of her. Our visits always start of cheery and then she'll start dumping things on me that she is trying to shock me with or there's always something she blows way out of proportion and wants me to feel sorry for her or something. I just nod my head and say "uh huh" and don't show much reaction to just shut her up.
She isn't someone I would ever have in my wedding nor do I want her to be part of the planning. She was trying so hard to get me to go check out this one place for a reception but there was no way I was going to go there because then all I would hear from her is "remember I was the one who found your reception site." Right now every time I see her she ALWAYS tells me or anyone we meet "Other than her parents and sister I've known her the longest. We've known each other since we were 2 years old." I am so tired of her saying that. Just because you're the first friend I had doesn't mean we're best buddies!
Then for about the last 30 minutes we were together she kept drilling in my head that if there is ANYTHING I need to have done here that she is more than happy to run around town for me and get things, deliver things, etc. Then she said "I could be your personal assistant or even a bridesmaid". Ugh...NO!!! Then, this just blew me away. She figured that since the wedding party would be getting ready at another location that her parents are more than happy to drive my Mom to the church. Okay, so 1) your parents won't be invited to the ceremony so that would be really really weird and plus my Mom rarely has interaction with your parents and 2) you don't think out of any of our relatives, including any of her 6 brothers and sisters that no one would be able or willing to take her to the church for her daughter's wedding?! I just found that unbelievable and over the top!
Anything she suggests I will automatically not do because I don't want to hear about it everytime I see her and I certainly don't want her taking credit for anything that she will use to tell people years from now. "Oh yeah, I found her wedding reception place".
Okay so this isn't really a question but just more of a rant. Does anyone else find her over enthusiastic behavior just a total turnoff?
