Hurt

Yesterday, while I was sitting on the couch post shower, my roommate told me her friend, who is a guy, was coming over to print something within half an hour.  I acknowledged it and kept watching tv until about ten minutes later when I decided to finally dry my hair before it air dried into an awkward limp mess.  I never let my hair air dry all the way because then it looks ridiculous.  When I went to dry my hair, apparently my roommate was texting her friend and, with me in mind, accidentally sent the message to me by mistake.  This is what it said:  "(My name) was sitting on the couch with wet hair and pjs until i said you were coming over.  Now she's getting ready.  Ha.  She cares too much what she looks like."

Excuse me?  I was so upset, hurt, and even more self conscious than I already am, but what mostly pissed me off was the fact that I was not getting ready but simply drying my hair.  Didn't know that was a crime.  Plus, the guy who was coming over, I'm not interested in in any way.  My roommate and I are from completely different social groups, so her friends...well, they're just not my cup of tea.  So now, I had several options on how to handle the situation, but I didn't want to blow things out of proportion, so I settled on hiding in my room after making the comment, "I was just drying my hair," and huffing quietly.  I heard her say, "Huh?", and then she must have realized her mistake because she sent me an apologetic text.  I didn't want to cause drama, so I told her I wasn't made but just hurt.  And that is the truth because I'm not exactly angry, but words can't describe how upset I was and still am.  I can't get it out of my head, especially since she was going to tell someone else that?  I was relieved that the message didn't make it to her friend, which I told her, but then she said she showed it to him.  What a bitch.

Okay, so maybe I am still pissed...

  1. You should talk to her about it privately. You need to let her know how hurt your are by her words. Don't expect an apology or her to change her attitude/opinion of you, but at least she'll know how her words affect you.

  2. oh jeeze, what a bitch. you were just drying your hair.
    you should probably tell her that you don't apprisheate her talking about you to her friends, but i fear she'd only tell them what you said.

  3. That was a very bitchy thing to do.
    And as I have heard; you guys aren't like best friends. So talking to her wouldn't even cross my mind.
    I am here for you always... no matter what.
    And tonight I am going to make a longer post, just for you<3
