My husband doesnt like my best friend and we get in fights about it all the time! I'm not sure if my best friend knows how he feels, but im sure she gets a vibe when she sees him. He cant stand it that she always flaunts about how well off that they are or this happened so poor me type things. She brags a lot on her facebook status about how great her daughter is or can you believe we just bought this or that. I grew up with her and have known her now for 13 years so I am used to it and just brush it off but it drives him nuts. I watch her daughter daily so we see her daily. It drives him nuts that she thinks she is "special" and she does not have to follow my daycare rules, since she is my friend. I ask her to follow my daycare rules and she will for a short time, but then fall into "since I'm your best friend I dont need to follow the rules!" My husband tells me I let her walk all over me and I let her get away with thing too much. We get into fights about it all the time and it usually ends with him telling me I'm not going to listen to him anyway and that she is put before him. All I want him to do is act friendly when she comes to pick up her daughter from daycare,. I told him he does not have to have a full fledged conversation with her, but if he passes her just acknowledge her and say Hi. He says there is no reason he should have to. He works second shift and she usually shows up around the time he has to leave for work. He has started to leave for work earlier just to avoid her, but this taking away time he usually spends with my sons. I love my husband! and I like my best friend, I feel like I am stuck in the middle! I am starting to go NUTS with this!
