Right, so I have a problem with my best friend. I’ve known this guy since secondary school.
However, recently he’s been a bit…I dunno what the word is really.
Take this. I broke my phone so I decided to get a new one. There was a very nice Nokia Lumia going at a respectable price, so I told him about it. A couple of days later, suddenly he says to me he needs a new phone (his is absolutely busted, I don’t know how he can use it) and that he might have to use his mum’s. Guess what the phone was? A Lumia. Not that odd, you might say, but get this one.
My favorite car, my dream car that I want to someday own, is the Nissan 350Z. He keeps telling me he needs a new car (this is around 4 months after buying his current one, after getting rid of his previous one). Anywho, me and a couple of other friends from another town decided to go out for a few drinks and whatnot, so I thought why not invite said guy, for obvious reasons. So my other friends picked me up and we headed into town to meet said guy and go to a bar or whatever. We met said guy at the car park, and the talk turns to cars. He tells my friend that he wants another car, and then says (and I quote) “either a Focus or a 350Z”.
Now, the first one I thought OK, so his mum’s got a Lumia. They’re popular phones, so that’s not really that strange. But then I think, well he’s working, he can have whatever phone he wants really, so why would he want to use his mum’s all of a sudden?
However, the second one? I feel like he’s taking the p*** a bit if I’m honest, almost mocking me for whatever reason.
My suspicions were indeed confirmed a few days ago when we were on our way into town for a bit of shopping (sounds gay I know…), where he said “either a Focus, or a 350Z just to p*** you off”.
I don’t really know what to do here. It’s very strange IMO, and I can’t really put my feelings into words at this point. However, I can almost guarantee that if I had a fetish for, say, a 240SX or whatever they are, he would have said “a Focus or a 240SX”.
Anybody know what to do here? What to say to him? Or do I just ignore him?
EDIT: I literally just thought of what it seems to be. It seems almost as if he’s trying to constantly one-up me. That doesn’t sound right, but it’s the best I can do.
