Friend or Enemy?

December 3rd, 2008 at 01:27 pm

One thing I hate about military life is you don't know who to trust. Being a military wife, I've always been open to meeting new people and becoming friends simply because i'll need the support when my husband deploys. Now, I don't even think having friends are even worth the time and effort. Most of them are frauds!

I had a "friend" who volunteered to watch my dog while I visited family in Hawaii, and when I got back, my house was trashed!! There were shoes thrown around in the living room floor, my curtains were all messed up, there were chewed up wooden coasters on the floor from when she let my dog in the house which I specifically told her not to let him in, my towels were thrown in the backyard for my dog to chew up, mud and dog poop on the floor..... it was a mess!! To make things worst, she had the nerve to say that I owed her $300 for watching my dog, and for her buying snacks, toys, and a collar for him. Now, the snacks, toys, and collar was all on her. I didn't ask her to buy anything for him. I was furious, so I responded that i'll pay her the $300 if she pays me for everything that was damaged in my house.

The thing that makes me more furious was that she was snooping in my bedroom. How would I know this? Well, I always clean the house spotless before I leave town, that way when I get home, I don't have anything to worry about. When I got home from my trip, there were boxes that I left inside my closet scattered on my bed. There was my credit reports, bank statements, all of my important financial stuff scattered on my bed. So much for that friend!

On the other hand, there are friends who just try to outdo you. When I got a car from my mom as a christmas present, my "friend" decided to trade in her car for a Lexus. She then started flaunting it saying how much her car is better than mine. I, personally, didn't care! I mean, in the end, it's really just affecting her since she's stuck with the payments...NOT ME! A few months later, I found out that she had to give the car back because she couldn't keep up with the payments.

It pisses me off that people can be so shady. All I want is a friend I can trust. Not someone who just comes to me for information so that they can outdo me or use me or whatever.
