Ever had a friend, who always went “me too! me too!” whenever you said you had done something or something had happened to you? Or are you that friend?
Well, in any case it’s so bloody annoying when you are telling someone something interesting and they go me too! me too! Once, in a while it’s fine but how can it be that whatever happens to me happens to you too? Wait! are you me? Am i you? Now i am just confused!
I had the misfortune of having such a ‘friend’ in university and I use the word ‘had’ because I have cut all contact with her since I graduated and no it’s not just because of the fact that she suffered from the ‘me too! me too!’ syndrome or rather made me suffer due to it! but because of other reasons which i shall not elaborate here.
Anyways, so this particular person seemed to say nothing else apart from me too! me too! whenever I told her that something had happened to me. For instance, once at US customs a security personnel asked me if I am spanish because of my surname and when i told her she said… yes you guessed it… ME TOO! ME TOO! I mean what the heck? really? i mean your surname is so obviously indian like Patel! (that wasn’t her surname though!)
Being the nice understanding person that I am (ahem ahem!) I let it go but it just got worse. Somehow everything that happened between my boyfriend and I also seemed to happen between her boyfriend and her. How is that even possible? Every time? Really?
I presume, that if i had not cut contact with her, eventually this would’ve happened…
