One of Those "Worst Day Ever" Moments

So I can't say that today was my absolute Worst Day Ever, but it comes pretty close. To put it simply, my day consisted of:

Stress (from home) x Friends (stressing me out) + 1(annoying mistake) + 1(program that would not cooperate) = Bad Day

Simple equation, I assure you.

I have this one friend. We had to choose groups among our friends for a trip. There's this big mix-up, probably some lies involved and some secrecy. I get into a group. We were both supposed to be in it. We didn't get in together. Well, she didn't get in it. What does this create? Problems. So she doesn't have a group, and everyone needs a group to go on the trip!

She starts crying. Yes, I know you're sad. Yes, I know you're stressed. But for God's sake it's not the end of the world! I felt really bad though--even though I knew nothing was my fault.

We try to solve the problem. Her way of solving the problem was to leave my group whom I wanted to go with and pair up with her. There are four people in a group. One + One does not equal Four. It wouldn't work. We would get split up. Or put together with some random people.

Now tell me, isn't that a bit selfish? At first I didn't say anything, but she just kept on pressuring me! For the love of all above, why?

She kept on provoking me, "Yeah you could just leave your group, it'll be fine, they probably won't get split up anyway," or, "Yeah, then we can be together at least, and we could find someone," to "Yeah, since it's not too hard to change it, we can find a way to fix it."

I felt like yelling at her: Did I agree to go with you? With someone who isn't that close of a friend? With one other person who, not to mention, does not talk so much? And then get paired up with people I'm not close with?

Talk about aggravating! She had to go drag everyone into it, cry--please, it's not such a big deal--and then pressure me. I chose against her, thank you very much.

Now I know, I know, it may seem like I'm being a mean person or something like that, but think about it fairly: If one friend wanted to go with you compared to two close friends (not including the third girl) who wanted to go with you, who would you choose? Will crying help? Would pressuring help?

Frankly, I'm a very blunt person. I see things in black and white. I look at a situation and I see the best option. My friend should have understood that though she may have fun--I wouldn't. She should have taken into consideration my own feelings. Instead of me dragging me through a hell of a mess adding onto my hell of a day.

She sure knows how to make a person feel more stressed. Her problems looked so petty compared to moving to another state. I hope she learns one day that there are bigger things to cry about. (And no, this does not imply that she won't ever learn, Anonymous who commented on my last post. Assuming can sound very condescending, and the comment sounded more like a lecture than anything else. If you want to lecture, start your own blog! And see, I was still nice in my reply to your comment--I said thank you.)

Today was definitely one of those "Worst Day Ever" moments.
