My plumber told me this about fixtures. But I heard someone say this about appliances too. They’re cheaper builds because they’re priced cheaper.
So, this is an incident that happened about 18 months ago that destroyed a long term friendship. Ive been thinking about it a lot, and want to know if IATA
I played D&D with my best friend (F), his wife (W), and a few other friends. We played in the conference room of a hotel, but sometimes had to play in their flat if the room was booked up. This happened around Xmas 2018.
Their flat was incredibly small and we struggled to fit everyone in. We ordered pizza and after I finished, I put my empty box under my seat to keep it out of the way. I accidentally forgot about it (I never had before).
Next game night, we played in a storage area instead, which was much bigger/better. However, my friend said that W had banned us from playing in the flat because someone had left a pizza box after the last session. This was said in a jovial tone with little hint of seriousness, as if it were a joke.
I suspected myself, but nothing was directed at me (it was said to the group as a whole). We all laughed about it and then moved on. The pizza box incident was never mentioned again. After this, W rarely came to games.
in Feb 2019 I got engaged and organised a celebratory meal with friends, including F and W. I was going to ask F if he would be my best man.
We heard nothing from them, so I messaged him to ask if they would be coming. Here is the message I got back (word for word with names redacted):
“We wont be coming. This may come as a shock, but me and W have just had a massive argument, and im afraid its over you. Ever since the day you put a pizza box on the floor of the flat and didn’t apologise its been festering. She feels you have disrespected her, and by doing so have also disrespected me. Its like you don’t even care. It came to a head last week when you barely even acknowledged her. She has given me the ultimatum. Its either you or her. She’s all I have left. After all we’ve been through, I cannot lose her. She isn’t coming to the game anymore because she cant stand to be around you. This needs fixing!”
This was the first time the pizza box had been mentioned in 4 months.
I was extremely apologetic, but F told me he didn’t know how I could fix it. W refused to speak to me. I ended up writing a letter of apology (It was as nice and sincere as possible).
There was a week of silence. My fiancé messaged the wife about it (against my knowledge). W never replied and blocked my fiancé.
Eventually F said that they wouldn’t forgive me. The letter
