Sorry folks but I am about to go on another rant. I have a "friend" which is a term I can probably use pretty loosely at this point. He was going to be a groomsmen in my wedding. I would have chose him to be my best man in my upcoming wedding had I not thought it was going to cause hard feelings amongst my other friends, so I chose my oldest brother as my best man. We have been friends for a long time but over the past year we became even closer friends.
Anyways it all started coming apart about a month ago when we went to the Red Sox game and he ditched out on us. I've seen him once since then, which might not sound that bad to some of you but he used to be at my house every weekend. He didn't show up the day we all got fitted for our tuxes and said he was going to get fitted up by his house. He was supposed to go on vacation with us in Rhode Island and he just stopped returning my phone calls 3 days before we were supposed to leave and never came down.
After we returned from vacation he talked to Abi through AIM, and he talked to one of my other good friends Sean but has yet to speak with me. He told them both that we need to clear the air and he needs to explain to me whats going on with him. Well he's told everyone else and honestly I think its a f*ckin cop out.
He told Abi that for the last two years her and I have basically been his entire life, his only real friends. Now that I am most likely leaving for the Coast Guard he needs to try and go on with his life and make sure he is going to be OK once were gone, WHAT???? I mean is he friggan serious? Last night he told Abi he didn't want to be in the wedding, he didn't tell me, he told Abi. He wants to be there to support us but he no longer wants to be in the wedding. He said he doesn't feel wanted even though I chased him for like 3 days to get fitted for his tux. He also said he doesn't want people judging him for being in my wedding, WTF????? Last time I checked Abi and mines wedding it supposed to be about us and what we want. Plus the fact that everyone in my family is good friends with him, noone would judge him.
I don't know, to me its just one big F*ckin cop out, and if your going to take yourself out of my wedding and basically stop being my friend because of my choice to serve my country then you weren't a real friend of mine to begin with. I know of people who have there best friends living on the other side of the country, it sucks but at least you have a good friend somewhere. Its funny how I've heard these types of stories before but I never would have thought any of my friends would have pulled this shit. So here I am folks, someone who cares about his family, his friends, and his country. I'm going to do my best to serve all three. If you don't want to be apart of my life, then thats your loss.
