Tying Up Loose Ends...|
Furries are like that. They hear some nasty rumour about someone else and jump on the band wagon," YEAH! Man that guy's a real prick! Everything you say about him must be true, even though I don't know him!" I've dealt with that before.
And I know all about trying to talk to people and having them NOT believe you. I went through all the effort of trying to apologize to this one friend. I wrote out a long apologetic letter, tried to list solutions to the problems we were having. What did she do? Started spreading rumours saying I was lying about wanting to fix things, told everyone I was a prick and certain other untrue things about me (don't wanna nasty up your jourlal with exactly what she said).
And honestly, she made me really NOT want to stay friends after that. Just shows that by at least being the assertive one, and asking for forgiveness, leaves you looking like the good guy in the end. While she's off badmouthing me, the people she's told these nasty rumours to are getting to know me personally. Nice strategy there, sparky. =P
