Lifelong Friendships

So anyway, this is going to be one of those posts where I just bitch incoherently about something that's been on my mind.  So, if you're looking for grammatical correctness and all that jive, look elsewhere.  Today is not the day.
I don't trust people who don't have at least one 10+ year friendship.  I just don't.  I have many close friends who I've known for right under 12, 15 or 20 years, and a couple who I've known for over 20 years. Or as my grandmother might say, "Since I was knee high to a junebug" I'm not talking about the kind of friendship, where you've just known someone for a long time.  I'm talking about the kind of friendship where if I need anything, they'd give it to me, and I'd do the same for them. These relationships are hard to come by, but I have several. I find it hard to trust a person who doesn't have at least one.  You mean to tell me no one from elementary, to middle, to high school, to college f*cks with you.  Why is that? I think it says a lot about the type of person you are, and I wouldn't want to align myself with you.  If you don't value your friendships, why the hell would you care about my other friendships? You might very well be doing shit to try to sabotage those other relationships.  After a while, it stops being a coincidence that you keep scheduling shit when other important events were already planned, then expecting someone to make a choice. You're not going to win like that. Clearly.  It may take a while for people to figure out how full of shit you are, but your lack of meaningful relationships tells me that they all find out, eventually.
