I post a lot of threads complaining about my friends, because of our moral differences... but this sucks.
Because this one is ALL MY fault.
My room mates and I are moving out of my apartment. My room mate recently took in a friend from work-a particularly unique individual who comes off as
sort of a "thug." I didn't like him at all at first. He's stolen from every one of us, but he's never taken anything too important. The most he
stole was 25$ from my friend.
Anywho, I've been staying with my family because they live near my school, and I'm finishing up my last high school stuff. And, let me tell you...
my family is the redneck mafia. Extremely pro-gun, and EXTREMELY ready to fight anyone who opposes them.
My cousin and I go to the old apartment to collect some of my stuff. Later, when we get back to Mamaws, I find out that my cousin swiped my new
"thug" room mate's laptop.
Stealing is more like a family tradition. It's not entirely something they frown upon.
Now, I don't particularly like this guy, so I didn't feel bad for him (especially since he once ransacked my bed room)... but I knew this was going
to cause problems.
Still, like an idiot, I downplayed the whole thing. I kept the laptop at my Mamaws, played dumb, and used it to download movies for my brother,
sister, and little cousins to watch.
Then, by some freak circumstance, the guy finds out that my family and I have his laptop.
So, I give my room mate the laptop to escort to him. After the guy threatens to call the cops, my family went postal, preparing for him to show up on
our doorstep with the police. They were ready for an all-out showdown.
A BEAT down, I should say. This was the drama I wanted to avoid.
Though now, my friends see it as though I'M the one who took the laptop, and I'm the one who betrayed their trust. And, I don't blame them, because
I did screw up. I was just as much at fault as my cousin was for all this.
So, long story short, my friends don't trust me anymore, and I no longer have a place to live once I'm done with school, because I'm not welcome
Usually, I don't post things like this on ATS unless I feel as though I wasn't at fault.
This time, however, I'm just sharing my negative feelings. I'm not even really hoping for any feedback.
I'm just sad, because I screwed up. Yeah, my friends weren't perfect, and sometimes I felt like I downright hated them, but now I've lost them for
good. Not the first time my jadedness has screwed things up.
So, that's all for my self-indulgent thread of the week.
I love everybody
