What is the most inappropriate thing a friend has done to you? I've talked it about in my journal, but I have this one friend who notices when I don't look my best and comments on it...my god it drives me nuts! She's done it twice so far and didn't even give me a break when I got my wisdom teeth pulled.."wow your face is swollen." I don't think it's a self-esteem thing...but more improper etiquette.

Desi aunties could learn a thing or two about proper etiquette..and what not to say. hahaha

Anyone feel me?

Yes definitely. I came back from college last year and one of the Aunties at my friend's home said, "Oh wow you gained weight!" Um..yeah thanks, as if I couldn't tell myself. I lost it all this summer though, which was fantastic!

Another personal experience, although this has to do with friends of the same age, rather than Aunties/Uncles: I used to tell this girl who I liked everytime, and somehow she always said, "Yeah! He's SO cute! I think I like him too..." And she'd go flirt with him. Basically she stole the guys I was after. I don't tell her anything anymore, and our friendship is wavering. Obviously.

Some of my "aunts" (my mom's friends; we Chinese/H.K. people call them aunts/uncles too) say things like that to me too (that I've gained weight, I'm too pale, my interests are odd, I could be more happy, etc.). For one of them, the first thing she said upon seeing me was that I've gained weight. Wonderful greeting! :p

For friends: one guy friend told me he liked me, but later ditched me and told me to "forget about him". After I did, he tries to talk to me again. Another person I knew faked an emotional illness to get me to talk to him and try to help him (how I found out he was faking). Needless to say I'm not friends with either of them anymore. Quite a few people have given me the cold shoulder too which makes me ditch them as friends too.

Less acquaintances for me; but I've never felt freer...

i agree with the less acquaintances part...after a while I just realized i'd rather be alone than be with ppl I don't really like or enjoy to be with.
