It's happened before.... This summer actually: I've had a friend who just got on my nerves for awhile and I worked out a sensible hypothesis that I was only kept around for her entertainment/convience only. So I basically abruptly ended that with less than a word. It's too bad I had to do that too, since I really liked her. Of course it's more or less just avoidance. I'm not mean enough to cut someone out of my life unless they've done something that I absolutely cannot agree with. women are evil.
