I think everyone has that friend that is completely consumed with their own life. Talking about it…crying about it…I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting such a person until now….wonderful, I know.

I don’t know how she does it but she is able to take any conversation and make it about her. You could tell her that your mother has died and she will tell you all the wonderful things that her boyfriend has done for her this week. Now, I have a boyfriend too and I love him to death but I love my coworkers as well. I don’t want them to have to rip their eyes out every time I walk by with another story about myself. 

So what do you do? Tell her that she needs to stop being so selfish and maybe listen to someone else for a change or indulge her forever?
