A joke which included me in it, offended me, and wasn't very funny at all. My boyfriend is mad at me for being upset. What do I do?
It was his best friend, who is a married woman, who said the joke to him. She said "Haha... I'm going to give Lindsay hell today so you can have a bad day....... Just kidding". I happened to see the joke she said to him at the time it was sent and I got upset because he didn't care about how I felt being included in it. He knows I don't like this friend of his because she bad mouths me to him occasionally and I feel like she does things around us on purpose to make me stress out.
My boyfriend, who I've been with for over a year, is sick of me not liking her. And he doesn't care if the joke offended me or not. He keeps telling me to chill out. I honestly don't know what to do anymore because we have to see her often each week and it drives me nuts. I try to be her friend, and be friendly to her, but she always pulls this crap - the bad mouthing and stupid "jokes" that aren't even funny.
