You couldn't get a clue during the clue mating season in a field full of horny clues if you smeared your body with clue musk and did the clue mating dance.

I've been up for awhile. It's a beee-u-tee-ful morning on the East Coast. I went for a ride and while I was out in the field I heard someone who lives in the development that borders the back of the farm fire up their mower at 6:30. I'd be pissed if I had a neighbor stuck up my ass doing that.

That's pretty rude. I'd be yelling out my window to knock it off.

It's a beautiful day here too. Going to be 87 but low humidity. I'm going to lay out in the sun a bit and read after I get a few things done. I need to measure the LR and DR windows and can't find my damned tape measure.

Wide awake here, but hoping to be a lazy bum later.

Usually at least two employees call in sick for morning shifts the day after a party holiday (imagine that), but so far everyone's checked-in as scheduled. Good way to start the weekend.

I have insomnia.....again. I have a friend of 30+ years turn their back on me. I know this sounds pathetic but she unfriended me on Facebook, but she has added my sister.

I think thats why I can't sleep.

Don't take it too hard, aussie. Your old mate probably has an ideal or lucky number of Facebook Friends and had to prioritize -- that's all.

Your sister has always been smarter, funnier, more talented, and prettier than you. That was obvious from your childhood fast-footed dance-off video (which still makes me smile just thinking about it).

Yeh that's it HoTD. I have been in a couple of bands with her husband. It's a funny thing but my sister and I are not in competition with anything. In fact, she rang me and said this person had sent her a request and asked whether she should accept, I said 'yes of course', but shortly after I was given the flick. She had another facebook account with only her 'special' friends included in it, and I found out and called her out on it.

If I had a higher social status she wouldn't treat me like this, unfortunately. It is as repulsive for someone to be nice to you for who you are as who you aren't.

Oh, your sister is also of a higher social status than you? Then, maybe she is conspiring with the highfalutin old friend to caste you out!

You didn't call either of them a "cuntface" or a "lame duck" on Facebook did you? That kinda thing tends to rub the socially-elevated the wrong way (effin' snobs!).

I don't have a Facebook account, so maybe I just don't understand the gravity of the situation -- can't imagine one of my sisters calling me for permission to become social media friends with one of my old friends in the first place.

Anyway, if your old mate really cut you off over social status, she's not worth losing any sleep over, aussie. Seriously.

My sister felt that the invite to be her friend was a betrayal towards me. I have never thought about whether my sister has an elevated social status. I consider all people to be on the same level unless they are idiots in which case they become persona non grata.

I reserve the use of the word 'you know what face' for Mockers......exclusively! Is that bad? Am I wrong?

Can you elaborate a little because I don't understand. Would that be the equivalent of someone treating you kindly because you fall in a high tax bracket and know the right people? If so, I wouldn't care to know anyone like that. I know wealthy people and I know those who barely have a pot to piss in, I treat them all the same, either respectfully or not. Their money or lack of, doesn't play a role in how I feel.

That's hysterical! Hahaha! That's why she unfriended you. I sure hope you see how ridiculous that is. What would you tell little Aussie? Uh huh. Practice what you would preach to her. You don't want someone like that in your life, Aussie.

No, that's not bad and no you're not wrong. Anyone you call cuntface in here should wear it like a badge of honor.

Hehehe

See, I don't understand how that would be a betrayal.

Well, if you're convinced that you've been cast out after over 30 years for no other reason than your old friend suddenly views you as lower status than she, stands to reason she must view your sister as higher status than you.

Did your old friend tell you that's why she apparently second-stringed you, or is it possible that you're actually more concerned about social status than you think and you've jumped to the wrong conclusion?

If social status is really the reason and that's tied to money or lifestyle, your old friend sounds ignorant. Has she not seen your bench-top dishwasher?! Smiley_emoticons_wink

I don't think it's wrong.

The concepts of betrayal and status-measuring in play in all of this are just making me laugh. I think I'm outta my element here, aussie -- still can't see how any of it is worth you losing any sleep over.

When someone treats you with disdain and contempt when you are nobody, it's offensive and revolting. Then you have a change of circumstances, for example, come into money, or start getting a higher profile, those same people start treating you differently being sickly sweet, overly nice. It is as revolting and as repulsive as when they were treating you like a peasant. Fake fake fake.

I always try and find out who the real person is, rich or poor. You have to pull more than money and good looks out of your arse to impress me.

Neither do I. Which is why I said to go ahead. But I think my sister sensed there was something more sinister *cue the Twilight Zone theme*

No, I think Duch nailed it, she got caught out. As for my dishwasher, when they stayed here when they visited I had the old benchtop dishwasher, but when I got the new one, I did post pictures, so the FB friends know.

Exactly! Just as I am proud to have a permanent warning level of 20% from Crash for using the word aussie. I don't like to boast, but does anyone else in this forum have a permanent warning?

I can't relate to only liking people with a certain social status, that kind of thing has never played a role in whether I like someone or not. I tend to be drawn to people that "get" me and those that make me laugh. I avoid high maintenance and overly dramatic people.
