Aaah, Good Friends Are So Very Hard To Find!
And it’s true. I’m at the local public library this morning. Got up early. I’m in a very nice suburb because for the most part I no longer feel safe going to some of the library branches. So I decided to spend part of the day here.
As I was taking the cab out to my favorite suburban library I passed a Econo-lodge were a former friend of mine had stayed. She was an elderly woman who at the time she was 77 years old. I helped her to find the Econo-lodge after she was kicked out of a Motel 6. The brief back story about my former friend was she called me on my cell while I was at the library ( back in 2015) in a panic saying she was kicked out of her Motel. I should explain that the elderly woman was homeless. I told her no problem & I went to work on finding her a Motel for her since she wasn’t near a computer. After some convincing on which area she wanted to go to I convinced her to give the Econo-lodge ( located right on Lake Washington) a try. See I am a good friend but unfortunately I attract the wrong kind of friends. The kind that are:
1. Inconsiderate or thoughtless ( Usually I never get a phone call or anything)
So Susie ( not her real name) stayed at the Econo-lodge. Susie had some problems mostly mental which I chose to overlook. She was a huge hoarder. I say this because by the time she had stayed her six months her motel room was completely filthy stacks of paper & what have you covering every square inch of her room which wasn’t that big and her car was filled to the brim with clutter & trash she rarely cleaned it having such a filthy car often got her rejected for part time jobs picking up other people’s children after school, one parent took one look inside of Susie’s car & said ‘No Thank you’ ( Do you blame her?) We had a falling out , because I just couldn’t take her verbal abuse any longer. It’s now been about 4 years since I last spoke to her & I don’t even know if she is even alive cause she was a pretty old woman. It was real embarrassing to be around her at times. An added note everyone that wants to judge, I did try to contact Susie when a potential employer wanted to speak to her. I never did hear back from Susie. I can only do so much but I’m vulnerable & deal with tremendous pain, both emotional, psychological. At some point I have to walk away so I don’t get myself into trouble. This woman? very toxic! And I did give her ample chances.
Once we went for Chinese food out in Renton she was extremely rude to the waitress. Then after she ate her meal she licked her plate with her tongue. I wanted to just crawl under the table, I was so embarrassed!
When I chose to stay at the exact same Econo-lodge one year, and I forgot why I needed to stay there I think that I was in between apartments I requested a room far from Susie’s room so that there wouldn’t be any chance that I would run into her. I think that this was in 2016.
The front desk attendant then explained to me that Susie was no longer a guest at the Econo-lodge which was a complete relief. But there’s more.
One of the housekeepers took a few minutes to talk to me regarding Susie.
Upon checking out Susie left the room a complete & utter disaster! The housekeeper had said that it took a few days or one week to get the room cleaned ( I’m vague about the time but it was long). The housekeeper confided to me that she was so glad that she had that day off. Despite how awful Susie was to me I still think about her especially when I pass that Econo-lodge. My hands are cramping. Include me in your prayers please cause this life of mine is pure torture!
