Just found out someone who I considered a good friend is in the next county over illegally getting her hair done. I’m fuming but do I start a fight with her or just ghost her out of my life?

I mean...it makes them a bit of an a-hole. But do you really care enough to remove them from your life?

Ah, I guess I interpreted the “fighting” option as you continuing to be her friend but just having a fight about it and trying to educate her

Just let her live your life and you live yours each by your own moral compass and if being friends makes you happy then keep being friends and don’t expect her to follow your standards. If she’s not a good friend anyways then don’t waste your energy thinking about her

Sorry, if I had more characters in the title I would’ve clarified that this is in addition to a pattern of being way too into herself in a way that is not normal. I can see how the question comes off as extreme without this context

I like, couldn’t stop thinking about this as I went to the grocery store for the 2nd time this week and walked through a narrow entrance, grabbed a previously used cart, and shopped with at least 80 other people. Some people are so selfish!

I’m sure she told me just so she could flaunt it and make me jealous! I’m gonna show her and talk about her on social media and summon other Karens to help validate my feelings!

To be fair to all, OP expressed that she doesn’t want this friendship for other reasons as well, which wasn’t clear from the initial post. If you were terminating this friendship over a haircut, even during quarantine, then yeah OP I would call you nuts

Yeah, I expect my friends to be both smart and caring of the well-being of the people around them during a global pandemic. Have called out ones going to the beach as well as ones getting their hair done, the latter of which I find extremely narcissistic and self absorbed given the current circumstances, but not surprising from someone who is known to be that way. The great thing about all of this is we can choose who we want to be friends with!

Ignoring issues and pretending they don’t exist is exactly how we got to record high inequality, resurgence of divisions from half a century ago, and illiteracy rates in the toilet. See something, say something. I texted a girl I’m mutuals with and said “hi, thinking about you & your family. Sorry to hear you felt it necessary to X, I just wanted to make sure you had seen X demonstrating the risk we are all in. Please be safe.”

Let’s say the friend’s name is Lisa and the hairdresser’s name is Suzy.

Suzy’s a small business owner and her store’s been closed for two months now, but the landlord is harassing her for rent payments. The landlord is prevented from evicting Suzy during lockdown, but not after.

Suzy’s applied for the SBA EIDL forgivable loan, but she hasnt heard back in weeks and last week she heard they ran out of money! Suzy’s life savings is tied up in her business! She’s run out of options! She considered entering forbearance on her mortgage, but she’s heard banks are finding workarounds to screw borrower’s credit in order to discourage them from forbearance.

Suzy is desperate. She calls a handful of her of her best customers and says she’s isolated over month and says if they’ve isolated over a month, they can book a 1:1 appt. Lisa says, “Girl, I got you”.

Lisa’s instagram dream has been ruined at a time when she could accomplish so much (she rarely got to work from home before). They think quickly. Both agree to wear n95 masks and plastic gloves.

Just before leaving under the cover of night, Lisa, in her excitement, tells ACN OP, her potentially new best friend she was so. excited about.

But ACN OP hates Lisa. Hates her greedy, selfish, reckless guts! And she decides to tell the whole world all about it... but then like 80% of the world just laughs and calls her Karen. ACN OP doesnt care. She knows in her heart she’s right and the world has become a cruel distorted mirror of what it once was.

Suzy saved her business. Lisa got her hair done and maintained her instagram posting schedule. But Lisa noticed ACN OP hasnt responded to her texts in days... Is ACN OP OK?....

LOL damn people will stop at nothing to make excuses 😂😂 OP don’t listen to these jokers. If this word for word situation happened then yes you’re semi in the wrong (and I still say semi because the situation is ridiculous, still breaks social distancing since I assume they don’t go to the grocery store together, and I know I for one would just give my hairdresser money if they needed it this badly) but other than that... ROFL
