"Are you done being a bitch?"

by TheAngstyPoet on August 24, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

My best friend's grandmother has a twin. Whenever they fight, this is the question asked to throw a truce. So my bff and I adopted this system. Last night we were both pissed at each other over communication. She's moved into college and is busy with Marching Band. I know she's busy however on Facebook when one sends a message the recipient is time stamped when they view the message. I know she sees my IMs and I was annoyed that she wasn't responding. Yesterday she kept calling, both times I was in the patient's seat at the doctor's. Last night when we talk on the phone, she goes, "Are you done being a bitch yet?" "I go you don't sound like you are." It was a dumb fight, so I sent her a text explaining the sitch, ending with: "I'm done being a bitch, I hope you are too."
