Scheana's attitude about the tooth incident was actually quite frustrating because the day before she went in to get her tooth fixed, she had done something to me that really hurt my feelings.
Of course I care about her health and well-being, and it wasn't as if her life was at stake. This tooth thing became so ridiculous to me because it spiraled into so much more. It's not like I killed her cat! I just didn't text her about her tooth because we were in the middle of a fight.
I also didn't understand why I was the only one being blamed for not texting her when Katie and Kristen hadn't texted her either. Why was this all on me? Why was I the only bad guy? Now looking back, I wish I would've just sent an obligatory text, because it would have saved me from all this grief and mindless drama.
There is never any excuse for treating your boss with disrespect. Lisa is always so good to us. She encourages us to be the best versions of ourselves and I'm so grateful for that. It's natural to get frustrated at work, but under no circumstances should that translate into disrespect towards the woman who has given us so much. When we were at the bar afterwards, I felt a little disheartened as Kristen began directing her anger towards us when we were simply trying to give her advice. And it was absolutely fair of Lisa to suspend her. Kristen caused a scene at a very important party we were working. That behavior shouldn't go unpunished.
I didn't realize my dad was so honest with Jax and it was nice to see him call Jax out when they had their talk. Unfortunately, I don't think any of it registered for Jax. It was annoying to see him laugh off so much of what my dad said. Homeboy never learns.
Kristen and Tom’s situation is heartbreaking. I know how it feels to be cheated on, and in Vegas, nonetheless. And I believe that Kristen should have taken a break from him, otherwise it looks like cheating is okay. I can't ever say what a couple should do, because no one ever knows what really goes on between two people. But when she is constantly talking and crying about it to me, it becomes my business because it takes over every conversation we have.
Apologizing to Scheana doesn't fix things right away. I'm not naive enough to think that all will be forgotten. It takes time to rebuild trust, and friendship is something that involves work and nurturing. I wanted to move past the conflicts with Scheana, but the tooth thing felt so trifling.
I felt very uncomfortable when everyone started talking about Kristen at Scheana and Pandora’s party. If Scheana didn't want to discuss that on her birthday then why did she not only bring it up, but also keep harping on it over and over? That didn't make sense to me. I also felt it was inappropriate to talk about someone in front of so, so, so many people. That should have been a private discussion if Scheana wanted to have it.
I think there was just a little too much tequila the night of Scheana and Pandora’s party! All the drama seemed so petty that I did my best to simply stay out of it. Something new for me! Haha. When I saw Tom and Shay fighting, I honestly had thought they were joking and messing around. They are the last two people I would have expected that from. But again, too many cocktails that night.
I was actually very surprised Scheana wanted me to stay. Yes, we were trying to get past our issues, but Katie is my best friend and my loyalty is to her. In addition, I understood where Katie's frustrations were coming from. She had been upset that Scheana had only cared about making up with me, and that all came bubbling up.
