Angry self righteous friend - April 11th 2009, 05:44 PM

well this has only happend recently but a friend in a group of mine has become a huge self righteous asshole thinking hes better than everyone just because hes got 2 dates with 2 girls? he thinks he better than us and we are all starting to hate him because hes blowing us off for these girls and acting like a complete twat.

Should we tell him this ? he probably wont listen and turn it around on us but should we atleast try, cause its getting on my fucking nerves.

Don't be so secretive about this. If you don't like him being a jerk let him know. Make fun of him tell him to leave if he's going to act like that.

Speak up, he's most likely not going to change until you bring it up.


Geek? Nerd? More like intellectual badass.

Hey Matt,

You should definitely talk to this friend about this. He needs to hear that his friends don't like what he's doing and that if he keeps it up, he may not have friends to go back to.

He'll just keep doing it if you don't tell him. So get the message across and don't feel bad about doing it. If he turns it on you, then just ignore him and the next time you plan on hanging out with your friends, don't invite him.

I hope you get this sorted out.

Nat.

I'm with Philip on that one; I've always been a believer in calling self-righteous assholes on their self-righteous assholery. Either he'll apologize and things will get better, or he won't and you can turf him out of your circle of friends.


The atoms that make up you and me were born in the hearts of suns many times greater than ours, and in time our atoms will once again reside amongst the stars. Life is but an idle dalliance of the cosmos, frail, and soon forgotten. We have been set adrift in an ocean whose tides we are only beginning to comprehend and with that maturity has come the realization that we are, at least for now, alone. In that loneliness, it falls to us to shine as brightly as the stars from which we came.
