I understood Kristen’s frustrations at Kyle’s party. However, I do not condone her behavior. I think it’s perfectly normal that people have frustrations in the work place with coworkers as well as employers, but how you handle them is crucial. I thought Kristen used zero tact and it backfired hugely. I was hurt and offended that afterwards she was so combative towards me. I was concerned about her and her job, and she was putting me down.
I think she should have kept her mouth shut as the issue wasn't crucial. The way she spoke to Lisa was disrespectful and inappropriate. Not to mention it was at Kyle’s house. I think whenever an employee talks back to the employer in such a way it is grounds for punishment.
I am happy that Jax and Stassi are getting along and we can all hang out as a group of friends. It’s always difficult when people are at odds within our group. As for Tom and Kristen, I find myself walking a tight rope between being a supportive friend and having her best interest in mind, and not inserting myself into her relationship drama. I have seen Tom and Kristen go through crazy ups and downs, to the degree of not being healthy. I think whenever cheating and lying is introduced into a relationship, it’s very hard to bounce back. Some people can overcome and others need to be strong to walk away.
