How is your FriendStyle, are you self absorbed?

Group of teenagers having fun outdoor

Once a month I stop and have lunch with a good friend, we discuss pending work issues, kids, spouses and what we would do if could start all over. We always have a good time, getting away to stop for a monthly visit is at times stressful to accomplish. Last week I was assigned to pick the place to meet for lunch and I have to say that I eat pasta occasionally as a treat type meal.

Well last week I decided pasta was it three weeks ago and I was going to have pasta no matter what.
The company and conversation as usual was good, the meal not so good. What a disappointment and I was vocal about expressing my disappointment. Even after my friend picked up the tab I was still going on about how bad the food was. On the other end of the conversation there was silence relating to the meal experience, guess what I still did not get it, I still complained.

A few days later, I was working on a project when it hit me like a ton of bricks, the outing was not about the meal, the outing was about FriendStyle, my friend had stopped and made time out of his schedule for me and I did not stop to think that the complaining was simply not cool. Sometimes it’s so easy to miss the forest for the trees when were self absorbed instead of self giving
