Never Fit Into Any

I never fit into any cliques when I was in school. I was in the lower caste. Hand-me-down clothing, reduced lunches, never any name brand clothing.....you get the picture. The following story happened when Iwas in college...... I went to school with a very snobby girl. I've know her since third grade and she was a ***** to me back then. Through the years of school, she ignored me like the plague. Even if we ended up sitting next to each other in a class. Most people will occasionally have make light conversation before class, while working, etc, but not her. If you weren't among her friends, you were ignored. Down the road, we ended up going to the same college, one day during our freshman year, I was sitting outside reading and eating lunch. Who comes walking down the path but this *****. She sits down next to me and starts talking to me like we've been best friends since we were babies. Let me point out that I just glared at her and didn't even say hi back to her. After listening to her for about a mintue, I stood up said, "I gotta be somewhere else" grabbed my stuff an hightailed it out of there. The funny thing is that during my junior year in college, I took my roommate out for her 21st birthday, we were both three sheets to the wind and I see this girl at the end of the bar at the place we were at. I hit my roommate on the arm and very loudly said, "hey, I went to high school with that ***** down there." The funny thing was, she was looking my way when I said it. You should have seen her face. :) That was my experience getting back at the snobby clique. It ticked me off to no end that she snubbed me throughout 9 years of school, but since her "friends" weren't at our college, she thought I'd like to be her friend. No thanks.

You never really know what's going on with people, she's a 'snob' just because she wasn't very sociable wow. I think you were in a very materialistic mindset because you only ever saw her in 'what she had' vs 'what I had.' If it was someone else with the same humble beginnings as you, you probably would have just written it off as not very talkative.
And maybe she was stiff because you're not in her circle. Not just 'money circle' or 'popular circle' but that also her 'security circle' and 'comfort circle.' Given her age at the you can't just throw some people from their core people and base into the sea and expect them to float or be at home about it. She's that mature or developed that flexibility.
Come on you were clearly jealous. Gwennejane was right you missed your chance. She just sounds like a bit of a socially conscious and awkward at times girl who has friends that are also like her to give her piece of mind at school. And you sound very stung about not having all the unnecessary things that the 'cool kids' had. And you did that lil kid **** in college wow Very grown up you're definitely better than her. Way more 'amicable.'

i dont agree with GwennaJane personally, good for you girl! im happy you told that ***** :D gave her a taste of her own medicine

I see your point. But it made me feel good. I've been shat on the majority of my life by people like this. I DIDN'T want her as my friend. Besides, she wouldn't have learned a thing, she was to self-centered.

Too bad for you. You had an opportunity to take the high road. You might have actually made a friend of her - and then, at some point, have been able to talk to her about how she had treated you and how it made you feel. You were given an opportunity to be the better person. That would have taught her a real valuable lesson. Too bad. That makes you no better than her. You both lose.
