The Question Club
This question was inspired by something that happened, so bear with me.|
Anyway, this weekend was my friend (we'll call her Friend A)'s father's funeral. My sister and I went to go see Friend A, and noticed that a few of the people we know didn't show up. Enter Friend B, who was also expected to be there. Friend B texts my sister a message saying she plans to hook up with a guy she met. Right after that, she sends Friend A a text message saying how sorry she was that she couldn't be there, she was stranded on some highway and wouldn't make it in time. My sister decides to show Friend A the message she got, and predictably, Friends A & B aren't speaking right now.
A couple of our friends (not related to the whole thing) said it was harsh to show Friend A the text and that it was Friend B's business if she didn't want to come, so now I'm curious.
What would you have done?
Shown Friend A the text.
Kept it a secret.
How honest are you with your friends? Do you sometimes keep things from them because you think it'll protect them, or do you think it's better to tell them everything? Details and anecdotes encouraged!
