So, a few months back we (my family of nine) took in a young girl from my sister's school. She was on heavy ADHD medication as well as mood stabilizers and antidepressants, and some other shit I won't even bother asking about.
My family has always been one to take in and help a person in need (we did it with my current roommate and she turned out fine), but something was a little off about Emily. I could tell it when I first met her, but I couldn't pin what it was. Now as time went on, things got worse, like...she was lying to me about taking her medication, she was stealing from me, she was eating EVERYTHING we had in the house (even if it had someone's name on it), and she was borrowing money which she hasn't paid back.
During this all, I've been nothing but nice to her. Why? Because if I was hurting and had been through what she had, I'd want someone to be kind to me, and you all know that's the person I've always been -- the friend when someone has none. I love to help, and more than once I've been someone's reason for living, and that changes a person to try and be a better person.
At any rate, two nights back, Naomi asked Emily (in these exact words) "Hey Emily, why did you borrow my makeup and leave it out?" Now, I was standing two feet from them, and Naomi asked very nicely, and the only reason she asked that way is because NO ONE else in this house uses makeup that doesn't belong to them without permission, but Emily always has, and some of the stuff that was left open was what Emily had used before.
Emily's response was "I didn't use your fucking makeup! Jesus, Naomi!"
So, I interjected; "Hey! She was just asking. Cool down."
And...then it escalated. Emily started screaming at who her focus had shifted onto, which was me of course, and was swearing up a storm! The whole while, I didn't say a single cruel thing, I didn't swear, hell I didn't even raise my voice! I was so proud of myself, and Naomi was scared shittless of me at that point because of how calm I was (she literally thought I was going to punch Emily out). Bunny, who was present for all of the bull shit (keep in mind she's just barely 11), was just waiting to leave for Frys, so I'm finally like "ok, let's go Bunny" when I could see this was going nowhere, and no sooner did I have one foot out the door than I heard (barely) Emily say "Stop being such a fucking bitch!"
I stopped short, and turned. Bunny freaked out because she thought I was going to go and get physical with Emily, but I walked back into the house, put my purse down, and asked VERY calmly "What did you just call me?" and she's like "Stop having attitude with me!"
So I stepped closer "Did you just call me a bitch?"
This went on for five or six times till I was standing across from her in the kitchen, about three or four feet between us, and I leaned forward just a little and asked once more "Did you just call me a bitch?"
She freaked out and ran across the kitchen from me and screamed "DON'T YOU FUCKING HIT ME!"
I just started laughing my ass off! I hadn't even raised a hand, nor had I EVER hit someone in a fight, not since I was about 6, and he was beating up my baby brother. Point being, I guess I'm pretty scaring when I'm calm.
She got really pissed at that point, because who really likes being laughed at when they're pissed? But I managed to stop long enough to tell her to stop being a child, grow the hell up, and act her age. I turned afterward and was walking away and she said something to the equivalent of "I know you are but what am I". (Keep in mind that she's about to turn 19).
I couldn't help myself; I started laughing again and then said "What are you, 12?"
Her face turned red and she screamed at me as I'm walking away "Oh, what are you, 21?! Er...um, I mean...19?!"
My only response was "What does that say about you, miss almost 19?" with a laugh.
"I can't FUCKING wait to move to Massachusetts so I don't have to see your stupid fucking face anymore!"
Then I walked out of the house, and turned once to say "Please for the love of God stop being a dumbass," and then I shut the door, leaving Naomi very stunned and standing there with her mouth open. As I'm about to get in my car, I heard Naomi shout from inside the house "EXCUSE ME!? Oh no you don't! Don't you EVER call her that!"
Found out she ran up the stairs saying "what a fucking bitch whore bitch bitch!"
