I can't believe anyone would turn against you because of that.

A prank is a prank. Now, if it left someone injured or traumatized, then yes, I might consider taking your "friend's" actions. But nothing was done to hurt anyone and everyone is okay, but him.

I think it's best to just let them go.

There's a saying "Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart."

Maybe your friends were walking in the sand, leaving footprints onlyto let them fade after awhile?

Harmless to you, back at my worst when my ocd had me praying for god to kill me the "harmless" act of putting paper clips everywhere would have had me on the ground shaking in a panic attack.

For what it's worth I'm sorry, I have a lot of bad memories to work through. I also did not know he had pulled pranks as well, in which case he shouldn't pulled pranks and not expect a prank in return. It's why I don't.

As for your so called friends, I think they were really put in a tough situation. Then once one went it just snowballed into a group then most and so on.

The situation could be remedied though, have you tried contacting the one yall pranked and apologized. Sometimes it's better to sacrifice pride than to lose friends.

Again sorry for being so curt!:)

I am so sorry that all this has happened in retaliation to something that was meant to be harmless. I agree with others have already said. Realizing who the real friends are is difficult; I am just now starting to realize it myself, and even just today I had to stand up to a friend who has been putting me down (unknowingly, it seems) and making me feel bad about myself (It was SO. HARD. to do because I typically just stay silent, take things back on myself, and then get depressed). Be strong and stand up for yourself when you're feeling walked on or when it's apparent that the communication between you and others isn't going quite right.

I had originally said sorry and agreed to pay for any damages caused. he got all testy about how I can never take a joke and what not. I ended up leaving the conversation before i snapped. My bf stayed and tried to calm things down as it were but he ended up getting mad because he was saying some pretty hurtful and wrong things about me, to my bf's face. Not a good idea. After some more words we just split it off. But because of this with one friend my other deserted me. And for the record I'm 21, and its ridiculous because I'm trying to deal with highschool bs.

+1 Ivandert. I've had to dump a few friends who weren't treating me right. Sometimes that's what you have to do.

I called a friend one time who was a friend in college, when my brother had a heart attack and all she did was sigh. No I'm sorry or I hope he'll be ok no kiss my grits or anything. I decided then and there that she wasn't worth it.

The term friend
What's a friend
A person u can call n talk to
Or a person that hang around
To me a friend is a person that I just see here n there
I don't expect muck out of them
I use it very loosely
A buddy is.
........
Have to stay pg13 on this subject
So I won't continue
Homie
Is a person that will still with u
For thick n thin
Life n death
N he'll n back
My saying a friend will stab u in the back
Homie will take a bullet in the front
When your in a group of people there will always be tension
Plus there will be side to
I guess out of this u have less people on your side(short side of the stick)
Don't worry if they can't handle a joke/prank when they're doing it to
They're not worth knowing
People like that are just big babies that still need to be bottle fed
Cause When I go out I don't need to baby sit
Y people suck
Cause the enjoy it ;)
Yeah don't worry friend come and goes
Only hold on the one that holds u back
