A Father's Support Never Ends

Post by EpsilonXangent-(DOG)- » Wed Aug 29, 2018 12:58 am

I think this should be the last time I talk about Fareed Ramsey, because I'm afraid many people might find this really obnoxious, but I had to write all of this to let it go from my mind and just hope for the best that many people should accept that we're facing what life has given to us ever since we were born, both good and bad. But here we go...


On Monday, 27th of August 2018, My parents and I have moved on to the club, they suggested themselves to go and eat lunch (turns out it's lunch at night, so it's dinner) from the club's cuisine. I waited for my food, but then saw two of my friends - Seif and Amir - talking to their families, so I stood up from the table to greet them and talk for a while. Seif mentioned Fred's name and I hesitantly said: "I don't want to talk about this moment anymore, it's the end of the moment."
Seif was like: "There we go again with the hesitant behavior," Amir on the other hand was like: "Why? What happened between the two of you?" Seif then proceeded to tell him that Hussein and I have argued against Fred for his awful behavior and jokes.
I talked about the same moment for a while and told them that I should return because my food should be ready any minute, they were okay with my excuse. I ate my food and then went to the nearest candy shop, because Hussein was arriving at the time.
After Hussein's arrival (calling Seif at the time), he told me that we should go there at the gym. And we did, unfortunately finding Fred with Seif Tamer. I was pretty nervous and angry, but I decided to keep them inside me. At one point, I pretended that I saw him and then looked away in order not to notice me looking at him, but it was too late, because once opening the security door to get out in order to calm down, Fred shouted: "Run, coward!"
I calmed down for a bit, then went in and went close to Hussein and Amir. We both waited until Amir and Seif were done with their equipment(s). At that point, my father came inside the Gym and talked to me, telling me that he and mom will dismiss, and before moving out of the Gym, he gave me extra bills for transportation. In addition to that, he had to approach to Fred, and as soon as Fred saw him, he was frightened of him (Who's the "coward" now, huh? After telling me through the chat that you're brave enough and that you can't hide from anyone?!). My father handled this situation calmly, and had to speak to Fred:

"Listen, there's a red line of boundary between you and my son, and I'm not letting you use filthy words towards my son, do you understand that?"

Fred, with fear, replied with: "Yes, uncle, and I'm sorry for this, but let me explain--"

Father: "There's no need to explain, I just don't need you approaching towards my son."

Fred: "Sir, I was just trying to give advice to your son--"

Father: "And I don't want you giving me advice, nor does my son want advice from you."

Fred: "Alright, sir, I'm sorry."

Father: "Now let me get you close to your friends and especially my son... *Gets to me* You need to listen there, Fareed, you shouldn't be using vulgar language towards your friends because they hate when you use them. And you're a grown up, enough with the hassling filth that's inside you. If you want to apologize to my son--"

Fred: "I'm not going to apologize, sir."

Father: "Then this is your characteristic and your choice, I cannot change you, but I don't want you close to my son again, is that understood?"

Fred: "Yes, uncle."


And my father left.
The day continues like any other, and then my friends wanted us to talk about the moment again there in McDonalds. Fred was explaining, only to end up becoming interrupted by both Seif and Amir from the dumbest jokes they make. Later on, Hussein was arguing with Fred, the last thing I remembered was Fred saying: "I've got fifty million people to talk to who are better than you." Hussein replied with: "Don't you have the fifty million people who are somehow better than me? Then go talk to them!" Fred was like: "You want me to talk to them? Alright!" and dismissed. Seif Tamer was pursuing him again, and I talked with Amir and Hussein, hesitantly saying that I won't apologize to someone who caused me to become angry every time (to Amir).

I left afterwards at 10:45 PM.


The worst thing is: Hussein was pretty disappointed by the fact that I was supporting Fareed in the prank, but after me realizing what happened between the two, it indicated that I wasn't alone in the jokes issue with Fred. So I used this method of ending my friendship with that scumbag in order to feel better than before. I used the method where supporting him carelessly would help me end friendship easily.

I'm not sure I understand this correctly, but well..McDonalds? Is that really where you hang about?

I wouldn't touch that place ever again. I swore against them when I was a kid already for reading how unhealthy their food was.

I know they might have better their image a little in some recent years, but still. They are still large multinational chain and I don't feel like supporting those in favor of local places that are often dying out thanks to these big chains. So you'd never see me set a foot inside there again...

No, Leo, not exactly at McDonald's, we rather sit in front of it, as it is a stand rather than a restaurant. We sit in a bench.
There are numerous food stands that are right beside McDonald's, so we specifically sat right in front of a German food stand; Dönner Könner.


Of course McDonald's food is unhealthy, we don't eat there often.
