Sushi Fiasco

A little background to what I’m about to tell you. I mentioned in my last post about a girl I’ve had a crush on. I’ll call her LL. Well, I don’t even know how it happened, but I told her I would make her some sushi. This was supposed to happen last week. I made the sushi, but it didn’t come out well, so I decided not to bring it to her. I made another attempt a couple of days ago (this came out much better). The day I delivered it also happened to be the same day of her friend’s birthday. I’ll call this girl BG.

Now for my story… BG was having a get together for her birthday. I was invited. I knew I promised LL sushi and also knew she would be there, so I decided to bring the sushi to the get together. That way she could have some and so could the others that were there. When I got there LL was about to leave to go home to take a shower. I said, “I made this sushi for you and you’re going to leave without having any?” She stayed for a couple of minutes and had a few pieces. Little did I know at the time, but my statement was going to cause all sorts of problems.

Later that night after BG and LL had been drinking all day, they started becoming bitchy. I had had enough of their attitude so I left. That’s when the fun began. I found out from another friend, that was there, that BG made a comment about my bringing sushi to LL on BG’s birthday and wasn’t too happy about it. BG said, “It’s my birthday and he brought you sushi. What? Are you two dating now?” This unfortunately was said in front of the whole group. Most of which didn’t know my situation with LL. This was said to make fun of me. I will point out that BG did say that my sushi was good as well as everyone else that had some. I didn’t get anything for BG for her birthday. I did go out of my way to wish her a happy birthday the night before and I did show up for her party, but I wouldn’t exactly call us close friends. She’s never taken an interest in me. She doesn’t ask me anything about me whereas I do ask her about her. She didn’t get me anything for my birthday two weeks ago. Hell, she didn’t even wish me a happy birthday. Why should I go out of my way to do anything for her?

So, here’s where I need your input. Now that I know what was said about me behind my back, should I confront the two of them or just let it slide? I don’t mind being teased. I can hold my own on that front. I usually come out on top in those sorts of exchanges. However, I don’t want them to confuse my kindness for weakness. I also don’t want any misunderstanding as to why I made the sushi. I’m not trying to win over LL by doing something nice for her. Not my style and certainly not an effective approach. And after the way she was acting the other night, I’m not even sure how much I like her anymore. I’ve never seen that side of her and it wasn’t very pretty. What should be said if anything? These are a group of people I socialize with on a regular basis. I eagerly await your insights.

I would not confront them... This would be a mistake in that it is a big group. If you also realize, they were making fun of everyone. They kept making fun of B for making out with a heavier girl when he was drunk. They made fun of the branch of service I was in. They were just flat ragging everyone! So, to bring this up would look like a weakness for you dwindling on it. If you continue to take the nonchalant approach, I would say that's the way to go...

For once, I will agree with Aas...

Like you said, they were just in bitchy moods. Sounds like no big deal and bringing it up will only add to the fact that they think there is someting going on with bLL.

Save your Sushi making for those that appreciate it.
