I want what she has ... THE Sequel !!

Posted by   + Show Post

For those unfamiliar with the first saga ... the original post is below

SOooooo !  The friend did end up going to the nail salon but not only wanted what my DD had but wanted to up her one, so at 14 years old she decided to get a full set of acrylic tips, with shellac.  When DD told me I bit my lip in order not to scream how stupid this was.   This girl is not a girly girl, she's never had long nails in her life and she's so young... she should have started with just a shellac manicure.  Never mind the fact that you must upkeep acrylic nails every 2 to 3 weeks ... Anyways I didn't say anything negative I listened to DD tell me the story how her friend spent $57 for her nails.  

Sure enough yesterday DD tells me that her friend ripped all her nails off this weekend... turns out she didn't like them after all.  (she claims they hurt her - which is BS - nails don't hurt)  In my head, I slowly clap my hands with a disconnected look ... my DD's hard earned money down the toilet for something that didn't even last 6 days.  That whole fiasco just because she wanted what my DD had.  I can't even ....

wasted time, wasted money and disrupted everyone for something that lasted 5 days ....

to my utter shock the mom didn't text me or ask for a ride, so I gladly went by myself. 

On saturday I went to pick up DD from a sleepover at a friend's house and the infamous friend was there as well, she stayed practically hidden behind the other girl not saying a word when I finally said "Hi M (quite loudly) How are YOU ?"  and she answered "Fine" while recoiling like a cornered rat.  I honeslty dislike this kid, she acts like a beaten dog around me which just just screams guilt with a capital G. 

DH was talking about going back to the Six Flags park one last time in October and said maybe we should make an effort and bring the friend back and I told him No.  I really don't care to do favors for these people anymore. I'd rather bring people who are actually enjoyable to be with.  I'm DONE

theres this word..what is it..its on the tip of my tongue..oh,thats right..its NO!

Quoting Jinxed8:

I did tell her all that ... the mom of the girl is no better.  She was begging me to let DD go with her daughter to the nail salon (some BS about her self confidence)  I told DD money doesn't buy friends and this goes both ways.  We were going to have to instate strict rules about that if it was becoming an issue.

Now, there's a school meeting tonight ... I'm totally expecting a text any minute now because I know the mom is going to want to carpool with me tonight ... I gotta rack my brain for an excuse.  I'm not in the mood to deal with her right now

Quoting PinkButterfly66:

She's 14.  You should have told your daughter that she was not allowed to spend her money that way and told the kid's mom that if her daughter wanted her nails done then she can take her own daughter to the salon and get it done, your daughter was not going to finance it, that's ridiculous.

And you should tell your daughter that she needs to take a break from this girl.  And she needs to stop thinking that she needs to take care of everybody and buy them shit.  If you're buying friends, then they're not really friends.

trust me, she's still paying off her debt to me by working it off in household chores, as much as my mommy heart wants to tell her to forget it, I feel like she SO needs to learn from her mistake !!!!!!!

Quoting Anonymous 4: I understand buying things for friends but this girl doesnt sound like a friend you need to make sure she doesn't buy anything else for this girl.
