WE ALL HAVE awkward encounters with friends of friends or people we’ve just met.
An Instagram user shared a casual acquaintance’s crazy behavior at her party, prompting a trip to the ER.
Instagram user Elyse Meyers took to the platform to share a crazy experience she had with a friend of a friend that ended up in the emergency room.
Elyse decided to celebrate her new apartment by hosting a sleepover with her friends and making homemade ice cream.
“Across the room I can hear my girlfriend’s friend talking in great detail about how she just went to a family party [where she] ate a whole pan of brownies with walnuts,” Elyse said.
The Instagrammer continued, “She’s allergic to walnuts. She passed out, woke up in the hospital and it was the worst day of her life.”
“She says that while washing down my chocolate walnut ice cream. I run across the room, slap it out of her hand, onto the floor, and I’m like, ‘There are walnuts in there,'” Elyse explained
The influencer explained how Rebecca, the woman who ate the ice cream, seemed unfazed by the revelation.
When Rebecca told the party host that she didn’t have an EpiPen, Elyse decided to drive her to the nearest emergency room.
“I run in, I chat real quick with the lady at the reception. She runs to the back, gets a nurse to come in, grabs my girlfriend’s girlfriend and brings her back,” the Instagram user told her followers.
She recalled thinking, “Finally, the people around me are responding with proportionate urgency.”
Elyse told how she and her friend waited at the hospital for an hour with Rebecca’s father when a nurse finally handed the patient over to them.
“No explanation. I’m not a doctor, but 60 minutes doesn’t seem like enough time to save someone’s life from a deadly walnut allergy,” the Instagrammer said.
She continued, “Rebecca can see the confusion on my face and says, ‘You know what? It’s so funny, I’m actually not allergic to walnuts. It was just a bad dream. Is not that funny?'”
Elyse ended her roller coaster story by telling her followers, “This is the last time I’ve invited a friend of a friend over.”
Instagram users took to the comments section to share their thoughts on the crazy story.
“We’ve all had that ‘friend’ who allllll needs the attention. You tell a lie and then have to follow through with it,” wrote one viewer.
Another follower said: “Oh ick. Rebecca sounds like an attention grabbing liar. Ew.”
