Let's talk about real life trainwrecks ... [Aug. 25th, 2012|12:59 am]
Four is at Least Five

lady_borg insists that she does not thrive on dramatralfamadore and many others try to explain to her that she does get off on the drama.  

Shocker this is a regular thing for her: 

1.  A friend of mine is sleeping with their ex.  This has nothing to do with me but let me tell you how it does have everything to do with me they make my life hard

2.  People are always making my life hard by bitching about me.  No you do not understand!  I do not want to ignore them, give me some mean girls advice!

3.  It is so strange that strangers would run away when I have an anxiety.  My husband is perfectly accepting of these outbursts so everyone else including strangers should understand. 

4.  How do I deal with trashy people?  Maybe ignoring them is a good idea?  NO YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND.  THEY MAKE LIFE HARD.  EVERYTHING IS SO COMPLICATED. 

5.  This ex friend keeps talking about me.  Advice says to ignore her.  But you do not understand!  My friend (such a good friend) tells me all about how this person still hates me. 

6.  Someone punched me in the face because they thought I was someone else!  

7.  What would you think if you saw someone with a black eye?  Let's fester in bad thoughts and choose the worst scenario. 

8.  My husband does not trust me enough to think I could keep the story of how I got punched in the face straight.  So he rather keep away from the next family gathering. 

There is prob more but I am tired and TQC drama has been sort of dead so here is something to chew on.

I like to add that I have a hard time believing she is not still in middle school. Who really thrives on this kind of bullshit past high school?

Was lady_borg the TQCer who got punched in the face over a case of "mistaken identity" once?

Reading the last link I get the impression she exaggerates a lot and that is why her husband was nervous to go to the family gathering while she had a black eye.

" My husband is thinking of bulking and not going simply because he reckons that we wont be able to keep up on the story of what really happened. "

She sounds like a amazing person to be connected with legally.

Yeah, how hard is it to keep your story straight when it's not a lie? Makes me think she lies/exaggerates a lot to make her life feel more exciting/important rather than cutting the excess drama and staying home with a cup of tea.

This must be sarcasm...

I was just talking to someone about this and I was reflecting that I pissed her off once but I cannot remember when or how. I forget practically everything that goes on unless it keeps showing up in my face.

Anyone else notice how the comments in the last 2 posts contradict each other?

Post 7: "I think if it was a guy, I'd assume they got into some kind of bar fight. If it was a girl, I'd assume a boyfriend or something, idk"

"Honestly if it's a woman I assume that her boyfriend/husband beat her up. If it's a guy then I assume he got into a fight."

Post 8: "What the hell, why would your family think it was your husband?
Do they really have such a low opinion of him? "

"I'd give them a heads up before you go. It's weird that they would immediately think your husband hit you though"


I realize that those comments were made by different people, but I'm guessing the comments to the earlier post would make her concerned about her family's reaction.

They don't really contradict each other. If I saw a stranger in the street, I'd make negative assumptions based on almost no information.

For my friends, family, and other associates, I have more information to go on. If my married sister showed up with a black eye, I would absolutely not jump to the abusive husband conclusion, having known him for 15 years without incident.

Yeah, I guess I never really thought about the specifics of the relationship... It just seems like she was super paranoid about other people's reactions (all that "shut in" talk) so the "black eye = abuse comments would likely reinforce that idea.

For someone who does not thrive on drama she sure posts about it a lot. My heart kind of aches for that future baby and its life with her.

She's a member here, so maybe she will show up and give me another reason to procrastinate on cleaning the house.

Hopefully when she gives birth her priorities will change.

I would not hold your breathe on her commenting here, she usually ignores my comments to her posts and I am sure she will do the same here. I am sure she is swimming in the excitement of being mentioned on tqc drama. That girl has nothing else worth while happening...

Maybe her next TQC post will be about this post. :P

How do you major in anthropology and have such a low comprehension on awareness?

I don't feel bad for her. I just think some people are just stupid.

i can't fault her for having anxiety or social drama. that's an interesting comment you have on her choice of studies and comparative difficulty with the mundane twists in life...i guess she just must be incredibly immature.

in reading your links, i realized that i had indeed read all of those posts but did not comment. i suppose that i feel bad for her because she's a likable enough regular in tqc who's life is just like you said, a trainwreck. i do buy into the whole "i'm hurt mentally but i don't want to make trouble" argument she puts out.

Social drama is self inflicted so she is fault for that. There is no respectable way to sugar coat her behavior as okay. Calling her immature is barely scratching the surface for her behavior.

I do not compute your favoritism. If likeable is someone who responds "I am mentally unstable so nothing I say or do matters" then I side eye people who like that in a person.

i've had pleasant interactions with her in the past. that's what i consider likable. i don't go into her dramariffic posts because it's not really my style to bust someone's balls for being mentally unstable. but she's been nice to me so i will give credit to her for that.

Well I certainly agree with what you said. I only tend to remember people with the feelings I have associated with their names in TQC and I remember Kabuki_Callgirl being quite nice.
