Perception---for the record. the $22 friendship
btw, I did not make a concerted effort to look up a criminal record. I just had to type in a name and the PDF was there on a link. It took 5 seconds of typing. I dont have to fight to get the last word in, betrayal is made through a pre-chiseled sword. E was not mad at me for gambling. He was mad that the BTR payments were a few days late. The last payment I sent was on 4-24, I believe one day ahead of schedule. He cut Jon and my episodes off the next day. I asked PayPal for a refund. E and Paypal jointly refunded the money on the same day. I never stalked him. I called him 2x in March and one was to wish him a happy birthday. He was not a long suffering friend who had to listen to the fallout from gambling. I generally told him my ups and downs every 3 weeks. Aside from name calling from him to me. I had trust issues. He once emailed my boss in Calif. to make me look bad. Why? Because 10 years earlier, Marguerite and I served him a civil judgment hearing in the Mall of America? Was it because I took a side? Nothing I ever did in the friendship was wrong. It was just something he did not like. If I had rang up $1100 in phone bills to one of his friends the way he did to me, he would have more than cut me off. I rescued the friendship in around 2008 (can't remember now) because I thought as a Christian and relative of a church member, he deserved another chance. Mind you, he never ever once repented for ripping 2 people off, one being my sister. I don't know what to say now. Its like looking at fungus or dead ivy on a tree. I have turned it over to my higher power. The one thing I can say is, I won two battles in the last few weeks. No one can win the war of his soul. Only he can surrender to his pride.
