I have a complicated story, and I need help. I'm almost done with school for the semester, and I'm planning on returning to my previous place of work since my boss is more than happy to take me back. Unfortunately, my friend/co-worker and I had a fight recently. I did date this friend of mine for a short period because I was under the impressions things could work by what her best friend said, but she said it'd be better if we stayed friends and so we broke up. She didn't want lose me and things, which I think had more to do with her not-so-good past relationships. She also called me daily, but that happened even before we dated. She called literally daily for a good hour or two at a time. As my friends put it, she called me like a mother. Although we broke up, in the back of my head I thought I'd try to ask her out later when things were right. Anyways, the last month there were a few not-so-friendly phone calls. We were stressed out and things with school and the like, so we were pretty irritable. I had been patient with her the whole time although she might be angry with me. And there were times where she wouldn't call for a couple of days to make a stand about how I never call, which was kind of true. But, it's not like I call all of my friends daily. Honestly, I don't know of anybody that calls like this. The excitement and energy of our phone calls was dying. During our conversation a couple of weeks ago, she thanked me for putting up with her and apologized for being mean and things. A few more phone calls later, she didn't call. I thought maybe she was spending time with her family and things since it was Thanksgiving break. I called her up the following Tuesday to check if things were okay. I suspected she didn't call because I did something. So, she picks up, kind of surprised. We talk for a little bit, but then somewhere in there she says she had erased my number and I did something to annoy her the previous phone call. I had to leave, so I hung up, but I tried calling her back and failed. That is the situation. I don't know what to do really. I sent her best friend a lengthy message about the situation, but her reply was a simple give it some time. Well, the thing is, I only have a couple of more weeks before I'm back at my job. Looking for another job isn't really an option since it's kind of late, and I do like my job enough to return to it. The other problem is since my number is not on her phone, there ain't no way she's going to call me. I'm not sure if calling her again and again is a good idea. I have her e-mail and screen name, but again, I don't know if it's such a good idea either. Maybe I'm wrong. I'd like to apologize, but I don't know what I said to piss her off. I also think it's time I should be angry at her, except I don't know what for. So, I'm dreading about going back to work. Oh, and of course buying Christmas presents for my boss and co-workers sucks, too. I already bought my friend her gift, too.
