Yes, I have annoying friends. I started noticing them about 5 years ago. At first I ignored them. Or at least I tried to. I know other people that have annoying friends and deal with them just fine. After a while, those friends brought more annoying friends. They've become more noticeable to me. I don't know what to do about them. Sometimes they whisper ugly words to me, telling me things I did not want to hear. Other times, their whispers tell me encouraging words.
No one really notices how annoying they really are. Every now and then, one of the friends will stand up nice and tall for everyone to see and make a spectacle of herself. Then I have to do something to calm her down. Usually, I just spray her with something. That seems to do the trick.
I have been good about ignoring them. Then a couple of weeks ago, my husband mentioned something about one of my annoying friends. He even went so far as to remove that annoying friend from my presence. Maybe I should do something? I'd love to just hire someone to "take them out" one by one, or all at once for all I care. But, I'm too frugal to spend the money on them. Before I know it, I'll be spending a lot of money taking care of all the friends that try to keep coming around. I'm not sure if I'm ready to do that.
My husband has annoying friends, too. His friends started coming around at least ten years ago, but he doesn't seem too bothered by them. It is a good thing because he has more than twice as many friends as I have.
Oh, the dilemma! For those who have "annoying friends", I'd love to hear what you do about them. Maybe I'll wait until they come around faster than my hands can pluck them out or go bald trying!
Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children.
