    Instead of saying they already have plans for the weekend, they decided to lie?? Is that some kind of weird over-politeness thing or... huh?

    Oh wow that's really... I don't even know what to say to that man. That's really uncool.

    I wish the flu shot worked as well as other vaccines. Everyone in my house received it this season, and we all caught the flu this week anyway. My symptoms have been mild, as influenza goes, which equates to a heavy, persistent cold that drains your energy more. I also mistook it for a cold, until the doctor tested my mucus; accordingly, I may have exposed several other students this week. Oh, did I mention it's the first week of the semester at college? :meh:

    Of course, I'm relatively fortunate, because my mother did not experience a mild form. She ran a high fever for several days, along with coughing, congestion, nausea, diarrhea, fatigue... the usual influenza shit. Two of those symptoms are rare in adult patients, but there you go.

    It's the back-to-school illness. I'm at boarding school, and we all either get ill on the last week of term, just in time to pass it around all our families, or (more commonly) on the last week of the holidays, just in time to pass it around our boarding house.

    I'm not sure. I mean - if they go out and decide not to drink I guess it would be cheaper than going here, but it still feels a bit... I don't know. I'd just rather they told me the truth.

    I thought Swedes were supposed to be cold and distant - not overly polite!

    Sounds just silly and childish, tbh. I wouldn't invite them again...

    @Lemie I agree with with Katrian, that is pretty messed up.

    Not to sound sad and pathetic in any way - but that small group that was coming here are my last friends and they are somewhat a package deal.

    I lost my old friends in the break up with my ex. Because when you don't have kids the custody battles revolves around friends. Not that there was much of a battle. They were his friends first and their beloved game master. It's hard to thump the game master card!

    So, long story short. I suck at having and keeping friends. Now, who wants to look at my pretty, pretty apartment while drinking alcohol?

    I'd love to, but prior obligations and all, but you are officially invited to my Get out of Jail Free party when I get acquitted this April.

    Declining to come to your housewarming party and then secretly going to a club instead sounds pretty cold and distant to me.

    People who care more about a club night than going to your housewarming aren't worthy of the term friends - time to meet some new people.

    shame Sweden is so far away as I'm sure there are people on here who'd look at your apartment while getting drunk, lewd, and embarrassing

    I kväll festar vi i Sverige, för faen. Ja!

    @Lemie Yeah, that just sounds like poor manners to me. Get better friends.

    @Lemie, it really sounds to me like they aren't good friends. I think everyone here agrees on that. I'm thinking, since you said you would've asked to join if it wouldn't have felt so awkward, that you're not against going out. Had they been your friends they would've asked you and maybe even tried to get you to come along with them. Fuck 'em.

    It sounds like you've been unfortunate and ended up being friends with the wrong people. I'm not sure if their behavior is typically "Swedish", I think this type of douchebaggery can be found all over the world.

    Where in Sweden are you? I'm in the south.

    No, I disagree.

    All kinds of betrayal goes on when you're young, you're still best friends - you made a mistake.

    Obviously I'm sympathetic to the original poster, but those years everyone's stealing each others girlfriends, hormones spurting out your ears. You meet a new flashy crowd they appear exciting for 5 minutes...

    Ten years later that guy you ditched'll be the only one left from the original crowd, your best man, your buddy to the end.

    ...[or some version of the above]...

    If you guys have some teleportation devices I'm sure you could be right on time! Are we going to have to take a rain check on this party as well? I mean - what ever did happen to the basemen/attic one?

    Beggars can't be choosers? I worked with one of them this summer and we've been out a few time. After my break up in October they were the only friends I have left. I guess the problem is we don't have all that much in common, so we usually just party together. And I would've loved to go out, but I found out about the club opening by realizing that they choose it before me, so it didn't really feel right. Had they just told me about it we'd be cool.

    I live in the dark forests of Småland. Which is rather south, depending on how you look at it.

    Both of my personal teleporters are in the shop, which is just terrible timing, but what can you do? Not a damned thing, as it turns out.

    Isn't that always the case? Sure, it sounds all cool and sci-fi to have a teleporter, but when does it ever work?

    Never, actually. It works never. I think maybe that dude on eBay scammed me, and that there is no such thing as a teleporter.
