I would write this person off as a complete nutball and not trouble myself with it any further.
The highlighted made me laugh so hard. I love that. Thanks for the great comment and for a new phrase I'll be using.
While I don't agree with people who said I never should have said something to her, I do appreciate the comments. I personally prefer to have a conversation with someone rather than just write them off particularly if the offense wasn't on purpose. There have been instances when I have offended someone inadvertently and had they not shared their feelings with me and just wrote me off, me and said person may have both lost a good relationship. If I have offended someone by accident I personally want to know so I can be given the chance to apologize.
I think honesty is important but I don't think it's necessary to be rude. I also 100% stand by my email response to her and my decision to call her. To the poster who said my saying that is a reflection of me not having class, I say
Lalemma, I totally agree about writing her off and I have.
I think it's funny that people are saying I escalated things by saying something. I think it's cowardly for people to distance themselves from a person and not have the guts to tell them why. I said how I feel. Why is it okay for people to be honest but I should stand around offended and not say why?
I said what I had to say.She said what she had to say. She's not someone I want in my life and she probably feels the same way about me. End of story. I've got "greasy" pizza to eat for Mother's Day.
