I've been posting on LJ than reading it, as of late; I haven't looked at my friends page for a week or two. Auugh, I was going to write a big long thing about Asperger's and how I got castigated by a friend for not volunteering to go up to Oakland and help launder fluff at 10am on a Saturday - but it's still too raw. Funny how that happens when a weakness - one that's already the source of much despair - gets portrayed as the only thing that matters.

I'm sorry. and I hope if your friend really understood why you said no, they would understand rather than lash out.

I can't say that I was impressed with that particular 'friend' either. Vinegar is better for pickles than helpers. I'm not helping with that either.

This didn't help, either:
*dr.pie* fine. then we won't expect you. honestly, you flake reliably on
+        pretty much everything, so it's good to know ahead of time.

*sigh*

That's just toxic.

Whatever happened to "treat your friends with care and respect" and "treat others the way that you'd like to be treated"?

*hugs*

That sucks. :(

Please don't feel like you have to do me that favor I asked. I will still respect you -- I can always find some other way. Ok? Seriously. I don't want you to feel bad.

Perhaps your friend misses you and it came out wrong? I know I don't get to see you as often as I'd like and I don't know what's the best way for me to approach seeing you as often as I'd like. Sometimes not knowing what to do can get stuff twisted up.

Hmm. I don't really know how that conversation went, but I have a hard time imagining that expressing the dig at the end could have any particularly constructive outcome. If that's the attitude you have about someone, you know not to ask (let alone rely on) a favor. But it's not something you throw in their face except to vent.

At least, that is my analysis of the statement coming from the perspective of someone who has learned that flaming people is never as satisfactory or successful as one might think at first.

Although I suppose it's also a way of saying "also, please don't volunteer your help in the future, since we can't count on you and it would be awkward to say so at the time". I might be inclined to read it that way.

She can have a vicious temper, says weez; given that she was roommates, I'm inclined to believe her. I have no idea wtf to think. I don't think I have a choice in how she decides.
