How do you win an argument by bringing up critically ill relatives? Was the topic at hand: "who's grandmother is the most ill"? Don't feel too guilty, she probably ran out of arguments and tried to hurt you any way she could.
OP shouldn't be sorry. OP's friend didn't have to bring up the fact that her grandma had a stroke. OP's friend should be sorry for using her grandma's stroke as a way to make OP feel bad. She should've just apologized for being a bitch and then mentioned that she's just really moody because her grandma had a stroke.
What? Who said she was trying to end the fight or any of that shit? How naive are you people, honestly? If my grandmother had just had a stroke, I would say it, no matter what the current situation is. She said it because it had just occurred and it was true, so what's the issue? Come on guys, not everybody's trying to be punitive and win a fight.
Maybe thats because if she really wanted to tell her friend about her grandmothers condition in a way that wouldn't make her friend feel like crap, she wouldn't have said "my grandma just had a stroke. Bye." That sounds pretty similar to, "I said that so you could feel like a jerk and now Im gonna stop talking to you so you can wallow in it" and a lot less like "Im sorry we're fighting, Ive just been really stressed out today because Im worried about my grandma because she had a stroke, I'll talk to you later"
