Red Rover “Friends”
There are a certain breed of folks in this world that like nothing better than when two people are fighting. Especially if they don’t like one of them. They seize in like a thirsty tick with one person and then needle and aggravate the situation in an effort to make sure those two people never speak to each other again. They aren’t interested in resolutions or happiness. They’re too busy getting their jollies off on the animosity they help create. They love the bitterness and the jealousies. This person will poke and prod by pretending to be “protecting” their friend. They will posture and puff up and make grandiose gestures in a very public manner so that everyone around them will think they are being heroic.
In reality, they are simply being a bully.
