Today I was skyping my friends, like the usual. We were all having a lot of fun, joking around and playing games. Then I asked one of my friends, Jake, “hey can you look at this really quickly?” because we have a YouTube channel and I needed to ask him something for it.
This was his literal response: I don’t care.
And when you tell someone that you don’t care, it’s like telling the person you don’t care about them. Like, are you kidding me? You’re my friend, and you’re going to blurt out that you just don’t care?
This is what I said: “Wow. You seriously just said that? That’s kind of being a jerk.”
And he said: “Well, it’s because I TRULY and honestly don’t care.”
What the hell? Am I just supposed to take that and be okay? Are you serious?
So then later on I just ignored what I said earlier (including my feelings) and came back on. I was barely on for more than five minutes when I asked him something, and then Jake said:
“It doesn’t matter.”
I’m really pissed off. I can see if he’s busy with something but what the actual hell? You don’t tell a friend THAT. So I quit the call. I was just done. Fuming with rage and disgust. What really annoyed me is that this wasn’t the first time he’s said he doesn’t care. It’s been about the thousandth. And I’m sick of it. Whenever my other friend, Nicolas, tells Jake that what he said is really rude Jake’s like: “Okay, sorry. I didn’t mean to be rude.” But whenever it’s with me he… He JUST acts like I’M the one who told him I don’t care. He then proceeds to accuse me of not caring, and when I ask him when I said that he says that he can’t remember.
I can’t believe him. I LITERALLY asked ONE question and he tells me it doesn’t matter.
This isn’t the first time either. I once said “hey” and he just said: “shut up”. I had just joined and he said shut up. That was literally the only word I said.
I can’t believe how low some friends are. You think they’re there for you but sometimes they end up throwing you in a ditch just to climb over you.
