Have you ever had moments that your friends took and twisted it the wrong way? Normally I would not post about something such as this but I post about my life and we're girlfriends here so, I figured give it a go.
I usually work at a camp for my summers. My kids go for free and I am able to do crafts all day. Win win, right? It is really but this year I had an amazing opportunity at my job that would benefit my family, so I took the leap. I emailed the camp and let them know I needed to take care of some family business. That was a week ago.
Today a friend emails me that she is last to know. I said there was no intention there I was keeping it private for numerous reasons. She continued to let me know I embarrassed her by not letting her know and etc. I apologized and said I was really thinking of my feelings and not her and the intention was not to hurt her. I also told her of a situation recently where I was left out of a party of hers and never said a word, because those things happen and I don't need to be included in everything she does. She gets mad, I explain myself and so on.
Where do I go now? I never meant to hurt her, I wasn't even thinking of her feelings through this whole process. She tells me she will give me a list of people who know - well I only told 2 people (one of those is my supervisor who emailed me after the director emailed her). I am too old for this stuff.
Any advice will be appreciated. I am at a loss of for words (for once).
