So, just to take a broad survey of the three people who read this blog:
When you see people you hate, do you pretend to like them?
b) Yes, and I usually overcompensate by being super friendly.
c) No, I just ignore them.
d) No, I am blatantly mean to them.
I ask because there is this woman I went to grad school with, whom I had a terrible horrible no good very bad experience with on set once, and every time I see her I sort of try to ignore her, but she comes over to me and makes a big show of kissing me on the cheek and talking to me when I would really rather she just ignore me too. I am 98% sure that she, like me, continues to hold a grudge against me-- things were pretty sore between us for a long time. But when she acts all nice and oh-everything's-fine-nothing-bad-ever-happened, I feel like I am the bad guy. Don't get me wrong, when she does it I do it too, because to just ignore her after she's being fake happy at me would be downright inhuman, but... it's just strange. I think secretly she does it so that I feel guilty. If that's true, it's working, and I don't even really know what I feel guilty about.
What a manipulative bitch!
Has this ever happened to anyone else?
