Teenage boy gets questionable revenge on friend after he makes fun of his sick dog.

When this teenager is annoyed with his friend, he asks Reddit:

'AITA for bringing up my friend's grief after he made fun of my dog?'

I guess making fun is the wrong term, more like bringing them up in an argument. For context, we're both in high school, when my best friend was in middle school, his girlfriend at the time passed away.

Understandably, he was scarred, he never healed from it, and of course, whenever he needed to talk about it, or was just sad about it, I would be there for him, as a shoulder to cry on, or as someone to talk too.

I also have a dog. I have had this dog since I was three years old, so she has been apart of my family for as long as I can remember.

She is of course, very old, but she also has cancer, and is blind and deaf, essentially, a walking corpse at this point.

My mom came in to tell me to say my goodbyes to her, because she likely wasn't going to make it through the week. Ofc, being sad, I thought it to be a good idea to reach out to my friend, as he had so many times to me.

Instead of being there for me, he decided that it was a good idea to have a debate about whether or not I should put my dog down, and how she should've died along time ago.

Obviously I wasn't in the mood for this, and, as politely as I could, told him I didn't want to debate him on this, and that I was just sad and wanted someone to be there for me.

To which he continued to dig into it. At this point I was pissed, as he began to start making jokes about me being an animal abuser, to which I blurted out that he was a prick, and that I was hurting at the moment, and his jokes were making it worse. He CONTINUED.

I then said 'I will remember this the next time you reach out to me about your dead ex girlfriend, you f***** prick.' Obviously not the right thing to say.

He was, at this point furious at me, stating that I was never his friend, that none of my friends like me, how he hopes my dog dies violently and painfully and such. I eventually apologized for bringing his dead ex in to the conversation, but he has yet to apologize for anything he has said to me, and likely won't.

I understand where he is coming from, but I was so shocked that I had been there for him so many times about serious issues, but the moment I want someone to be there for me, he tried his best to make things worse. AMTA?

Let's find out.

NTA .You didn't say anything offensive about his girlfriend that might hurt him, you just stated that if you can't vent to him, he can't vent to you either. Don't know why people are saying you're the asshole.

All you did was bring her up, you didn't say anything mean or hurtful about her or his relationship with her. He was persisting in saying mean and hurtful things about your beloved dog and your relationship with her, even after you repeatedly pointed out that it was hurting you. He's the AH.

You could have said 'Well at least my walking corpse of a dog is still walking; your corpse of a girlfriend is rotting.'

Or 'someone really should have put your girlfriend down sooner so she'd be free of her AH of a boyfriend.'

NTA. He is not your friend. I'd walk away and not look back. It's sad that the friendship you thought you had wasn't really there.

He used you as an unpaid therapist and apparently doesn't have any compassion for the horrible and painful situation you find yourself in. Go find a real friend and forget this loser.

Looks like OP is NTA. Any advice for him? Should he cut this friend out of his life?
