This is a long story, so if you don't feel like reading all this shit, here's a video to entertain you. As for the story... One of my oldest, best friends wants to start a business. I agree on working together with him on it, offering skills for free (I run my own business). Normally I charge an hourly rate for this, but we're friends. If his business becomes successful, I get a small percentage of the profits, but only if it starts making profits. Until then, I don't want anything. It's 100% risk free for him, and I don't pressure him in any way. We're in this together! We work together on this for a month or so, and I put several hours, and around €200, into putting something together. We agree to meet up to talk about it one-on-one over dinner at a nice pizza place, to see where we're at, and to have an "old friends" good time afterward. We've known each other since we're literally 2 years old, after all. Last minute, he tells me his cunt Yoko Ono girlfriend will join us. I don't like her, and her personality is at least as horrible as Beth's. She's a fucking bitch and everyone of our friends group hate her, but tolerate her, because she's our good friend's girlfriend. Dinner is OK. A little bit awkward, but OK. She has an annoying, poisonous personality; crow-barring her shallow, uninteresting bullshit stories about her retarded cats into every conversation. She's the typical socially retarded Chinese chick. Doesn't have friends because she's a fucking bore, but at the same time acts like a controlling cunt. My friend is a softie and is attracted to these kind of dominating chicks for some reasons I'll never understand. But alright, she's my oldest buddy's girlfriend, so I tolerate her and play along. Near the end of the evening, the three of us have had a couple of wines. We're not drunk, but close to it. Dark clouds are on the horizon. Alcohol brings out honesty in people. At one point, we start talking about my cousin, who used to be my friend's roommate, and whom he moved out from because the girlfriend didn't like him. She gave him an ultimatum after being together for a month, "either you move in with me, or this relationship is over". That's bad enough as it is, but now she starts talking shit about him. I tell her she's not in the position to talk about my family like that. She tells me she doesn't give a fuck, and that she resents me for talking shit about her cats earlier (I make random jokes all the time, just like on this forum, and I happen to hate cats). I laugh at her stupidity for comparing her stupid fucking cats to bloodlines, family. She tells me she doesn't give a fuck, and fuck my family. I ask her if she's sure about that. She says yes. I ask her again, putting emphasis on the fact that she's talking shit about my family. She says yes again, she doesn't give a fuck. My friend in the mean time sort-of tells her she needs to calm down, and I need to calm down, too. And she acts like a raging cunt to him for not blindly choosing her side. I ask her one last time, only because she's my best friend's girlfriend (If she was a dude, it would be a fistfight by now, and if she was a random chick not affiliated with anyone I cared about, I'd embarrassed the fuck out of her in front of everyone in the restaurant). She says yes again. I say "OK, good to know", and ask the waiter for the bill. After awkward silence, we pay and we walk out. Everything is horrible and awkward until we go our separate ways. Am I the asshole here? Or am I supposed to take anything from any chick because she's my friend's girlfriend?
