Immature little snot nosed punk...
So Iíve been friends with this little kid who is an immature little snot, letís just call her B. Her and I have been friends for years, about 4-5 to be exact. She has always been very rude to me, but I just held my tongue and took it. Then I met A last year and she helped me stand up for myself. Once I started to stand up for myself B flipped a lid and started being very rude and immature, always saying rude things to me. Iíve been sick of her for the last year, but she has been riding my old horse (who she now owns and is going to get killed) so I didnít tell her to leave my barn. A few months back I got fed up and told her to leave, but I felt bad for Rosie, the horse, so I told her to come back. About a month ago Rosie went to her house and right away she gets injured and was lame. I told her what she needed to do to get her sound again and to keep it from happening again; did she listen? No. I felt like crap because I couldnít do anything for poor Rosie. I went over there multiple times to clean her up and soak her swollen leg. B sat on her bum and watched me do it, not helping me at all. We pretty much stopped talking after that. Then she wanted me to go watch her ride this little mare and her "trainers" barn (we'll call the trainer, C). So I went to be nice and A came with me. Earlier that day she went and "told" on me by telling my mom that I was going around telling everyone that I was her trainer, which I was not. Then she said, and I quote, "I mean, she has given me a few lessons, but she isnít my trainer." For one, I wasnít her trainer, didnít want to be. Two, I always called it "helpful pointers", not lessons (she was the one that called it lessons). And three, why would I even do that (rhetorical question)? So when I got to the barn, a barn which I hate and will only go there to show, I watched her beat the horse by slamming up and down on its back. Then she walked over and was trying to talk to me. My mom told me what she said about me, so I called her on it. C was right next to us, being stuck up and rude as normal, half way listening. So I said, "So why did you go and tell my mom that I was going around saying I was your trainer. I never did that, when people asked I told them that I had given you a few lessons, that's all." B called me a liar and then C went and opened her mouth and said, "What, you her trainer? That would just be silly, you couldnít fricking train anyone!"
At that point I was fed up. I stood up and walked to where A's old lesson horse was in the other barn. I sat in front of the stall door and bit my lip until it was bleeding (thatís what I do when I get super pissed). I didnít speak to anyone for the rest of the night after that. I was pissed beyond control and didnít want to take it out on anyone.
Yesterday she came galloping up on Rosie (to my house) and yelled for me, "Hi, N!!! Did you hear the amazing news!!!?" (as in her broke ass mom buying Rosie for her). At first I just walked past her, I didnít want to speak or even look at her. She then said, "Um okay then, bye". So to be nice I just called out that I would be right back. I went in to tell me mom, she knew that I was still really pissed with that little twit. So I walked out after she just told me to put on a fake face and smile. So blah, blah, blah, then she leaves, thank god.
Then today I emailed her and asked why she was being so rude to me at the barn where C and her were riding. She told me that I donít know how to ride, that I suck at everything and that she was using me. Real Mature, right? So I was just nice and said, "Okay then B, I hope I see you at some shows; it would be fun to compete against you some time." Then she went and posted comments on my photos that I had on my Myspace of her riding Rosie. In one of the pictures she was doing this super dramatic release while cantering around (she was in two point). So on my description I said, "Iím glad I donít release like that," joking around of course. So she posted a comment on it and said, "Yeah your right, you donít release at all." I just laughed about it! She even blocked me on Myspace, real mature, I know...
Okay, but I mean really. She goes out of her way to be rude. I donít know about you, but all the things she said and did were pretty immature. Of course Iím just going to laugh about it. But I canít wait to tell A what happened! :D
Kudos to everyone who reads, it's a long post, haha. Thank you for all that read and reply! :]
Ah.. stable drama. Sucks that such a stuck up person bought your horse.. Arrogance is the downfall of what could otherwise be a great rider, and it does nothing but hurt the horse. I hope that kid comes to her senses and gets over herself. Maybe she'll get stomped in competition and have to rethink herself.
It sounds like to me that you are both being a little immature. I mean, did you really think that comment on myspace would result in a positive response? You also say that she didn't know how to care for Rosies injuries, yet she came galloping up on Rosie yesterday...sounds like she did something right (even if you did help her). From your post it sounds like you are the confrontational one...the one going out of her way to be rude. Also, do you own the barn you are telling this girl to leave? If not..then what makes you think you have the right to tell her to leave? I don't know the girl you are speaking of obviously, but judging from YOUR post, you are the one that is being hard to get along with. You probably don't want to hear any advice I have after disagreeing with you, but I'm gonna give it anyway. Don't sweat the small stuff. Focus on your horse and your riding...not what some other little girl is doing.
Trust me, she always does get crushed in comp. (This is not me bragging, just giving an example) Whenever we show he gets last place and I tend to get 1-3 place. She always give me the death glare whenever we ride together too. But oh well, ill just kill 'er with kindness.
Thanks for the hug :] *hugs back*
Yes, it's my barn. Im sure I was being immature as well, never said that I wasnt. I was just venting, needed to get it out. This is a public form and your aloud to state your own opinion as well, so I dont mind.
And yes, I was being hard to get along with. I tend to do that when im being put down, defensive maneuver, haha.
Oh about the picture thing. It was an joke that we had going on between ourselves. She was joking around and I was taking pictures of her so we made it an inside joke. But oh well, I guess she forgot. xD
Oh yeah, and when she galloped up on Rosie, she was still lame. ):
Just cut yourself off from her if it's that bad.
Why make the effort to perpetuate the issue? Do yourself a favor and move on, no need to seek out stress and drama.
Oh I feel for you. People who make an effort to be rude like that, I just dont know what to say. It just makes me mad. but you handle that stuff alot better then I would've.
I would just ignore her. I know that is a bit immature too, but whatever. Unless you can act civil while she's putting you down and running around her lame horse with no care, then do that. Good luck.
I would just forget about it. Easier said then done, obviously, but I'm sure 90% of us have been through a similar situation that we eventually got through by just forgetting about it ;)
