My best friends husband lost his job about 6 months ago due to the ression he has not found a new job. My husbands job was not effected by the ression.
I had her over today so she could meet my new puppy and I (joking) made a comment about how bad her roots were. I was trying to imply that we do a salon day together, but appearntly those were fighting words. She flipped out at me saying how my husbands company took all the work, and I sit in my house and ignore the fact that everyone is suffering. I didn't know what to say. I do... I am a bad friend. I did notice that she was shopping at value stores and that her children were in the same clothes and not ever wearing new ones. I just didn't want to talk about it I guess I thought it would be over by now and her hubby would be back to $100,000.00 a year and we could go shopping together for school clothes. I tried to offer to take her out so we could talk, but she was just so mad at me. I am ignorant, and I take my life for granted a lot of the time. I feel aweful for flaunting my life at her I didn't mean to tho. I guess I was just pretend that nothing had changed because I was expecting that nothing would. It seems that her being low income has changed our friendship and I fear that we will never go back now to the way we were befor :(
