I went out for a meal tonight with my old "group" from school. We've known each other for years, but only meet up about 3 times a year because everyone's moved away/gone to uni etc. Even so, i think that's pretty good going as we all have our own lifes now, so to speak.
Well it had been a while since i last saw them, and tonight i just couldn't get on with any of them. None seemed interested in what i'd been up to etc, and i realised, i have nothing in common with them.
It bugged me a little that not one even looked at the veggie section of the menu, they skipped past it like it was the weird, unedible section. One of them works at a butchers, and was going on about her work. All the others said how horrible it was that in the mornings the truck parks outside the butchers with whole pigs hanging up in it. Argh, they all eat pig.. yet are digusted that the whole dead pigs are on show. The girl who works in the butchers then said, they once had a piglet in the fridge. Again, everyone was digusted as they tucked into their dead animal meals.
When the bill came, they decided to split it equally, £15 per person. I know what my meal came too, it was a simple curry for £6 and a drink for £1.40. I know i sound a bit tight, but i am struggling with money. I was annoyed that they all had more expensive meat meals, and naan bread etc, yet we all paid the same.
I'm the non-confrontational type, so said nothing about the issues... maybe it's time to go our seperate ways.
Sorry, i just needed to get it off my chest.
