FH has been pretty good friends with V for about a year and a half. They met at work, hung out a lot, were roommates for a brief period of time. V decided they should take a road trip. They've been planning it for months. The plan was to bring V's friend P along, go from Oregon down to California to go to LA and Great America, go to Vegas, Arizona, head out to Alabama so FH could see his dad, head up to New York, and head home making some more stops along the way. It was supposed to take three weeks.
Day 5, FH calls me and says they don't want to do it anymore. Apparently they're not having enough fun and are blaming it all on him for being a wet rag or something. The reasoning being he's too quiet and not enthusiastic enough. WTF. Yeah, obviously he's unenthusiastic, seeing as he provided all the camping gear, put the rental car under his name, and did most of the planning with V. As far as I could tell, all P really cared about was hitting up a brothel in Nevada.
So that's that. C's essentially best friend is a douche. He has one other good friend but since he graduated a couple years ago and moved a couple hours away, they've drifted a bit and don't see much of each other.
At first they were all just going to come home but C was afraid of having to renegotiate with Hertz so he thinks he's going to go ahead and head to AL to see his dad. P and V are going to screw off and do their thing, rent their own car, and then apparently fly back to Oregon. Which will be expensive, which they deserve.
I am so ticked for him. I am about ready to call up V myself and rip him a new asshole but that would make C look bad so I won't. If I see him on campus in the future though, I might punch him with a flaming cactus.
FH has a lot on his mind. He's been struggling a bit more than usual with depression, he needs to find a new job, and now he has no friends. Fuuuuck. I wish I could help but there's really nothing I can do.
Thanks for listening. Have a virtual cookie:
And if you should die before me, ask if you can take a friend. Pick a flower, close your eyes,and drift away- STP
