Dear Dish-It, My Friends Ditched Me


Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".


Dear Dish-It,

My two best friends in the whole world and I all went shopping. Then, unexpectedly, they darted off while we were just sitting there! So I called my dad to pick me up. But then I thought if he knew they darted from me, I wouldn't be allowed back to the mall. So I said, "Oh! dad, they were right behind me the whole time! I'm so dumb..." and said goodbye and went to find my friends. I didn't know what to tell them when I found them, so I said that I had to phone my dad "For advice." That excuse was lame, but, whatever. They were all ticked-off at me for calling my dad and making them look bad. Then at school, my two friends made people run around saying, "OH MY GOD, Kyra! I lost whomever! Do you have a quarter so I could phone my mom for advice?" I'm wondering if my friends are worthy enough to be my friends? I would never want to dump them, ever. What should I do?

Dear Queen Kyra,

Sometimes even our best friends in the whole world can act like complete jerks. That doesn't mean that you still can't be friends with them but maybe you just need to let them know that you don't appreciate being treated like a lemon-flavored Skittle - only good enough to be nice to when there's no one else around. Hopefully they will soon realize that they really miss your friendship and will come crawling back, begging for forgiveness. If they continue to act like three year-olds who forgot to take their afternoon nap, then go and make yourself some new friends. We all act stupid sometimes, but if they are really worthy of your frienship, they will shape up very soon!


My friend Sam did that and she started hanging around with the popular kids and she was all mean to me and my best bud. I decided if she was gonna be mean that I would just tell them that I don't want to be friends with someone who is gonna pick on me.

    I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
