After regaining my balance I appologized and grabbed another sister to escort her out. Thankful she walked in the door on bid day so me almost pulling her down with me didn't stop her from ranking us first.

Hopefully, this will be something you'll be able to laugh about over the years with her as a sister...

I just went through recruitment for a new colony at my school and on the first night we had an "open house" where all of the PNMs had the opportunity to chat with alumnae, sisters from the national organization and actives from some of the chapters at schools near us. I was standing in line to talk to the executive director with another girl I'd met earlier when I turned around and noticed one of the girls behind us stroking my new friend's purse as she talked to some other PNMs. My friend had never seen the girl before in her life. Eventually, the girl stopped touching my friend's purse, but never said a word to either of us. I don't know if anyone noticed this except me, but she didn't end up with a bid.

This semester we had a clinger. He would come to our events and just stand around awkwardly while the event went on around him, if you came up to him he'd say a few words but not really engage in conversation. Needless to say he didn't get a bid but he still clings; apparently the day after bid day he called our recruitment chair to ask why he wasn't offered a bid.

Apparently he was also around in the summer and had a habit of inviting himself over to the house even when nothing was going on, and politely declining requests to leave. Weird.

Thank god too, as I've now learned about how cruel they are to there pledges and each other, and it also let me find the sorority that I actually do belong in who is ironically their rival which I didn't even know before hand.
Even worse was it really wasn't just her as every other girl in that sorority that I met during rush week treated me the same way. I still have no clue why either as the other sororities loved me.

QFP and grammar

Odd post for a second post.

^^^Rudeness is not cool. Spreading hazing hearsay ("they are so cruel to their pledges") because a chapter was rude to you is also not cool (and just as rude). Just saying.

Sour grapes?

The most recent being one of their pledges being ignored by their big & grandbig along with being called ugly, fat, and so on by them simply because she was trying to be friendly and sent everyone a good morning text. I have no problem with the sorority themselves, just the people that are being mean to people in their own sorority family. There are some nice girls there, but for the most part this seems to be very few.

I find it very odd that you have FOUR posts on this site and TWO of them involve throwing shade on another chapter.

Also, today I learned "throwing shade"

The recruitment season is upon us again! My chapter had a recruitment event the other night, and it's pretty open, so whoever wants to come can come. There was this girl there who fooled everyone into thinking she was a PNM when she actually is an active, initiated member of another NPC group on campus. She was asking questions a typical PNM would ask, and she definitely didn't let on that she was already a member of another group. We didn't find out until after the event ended that she was just a random girl who showed up to "hang out." It was definitely veeeeery awkward.

Maybe she heard you had really good snacks there? Or maybe she thought switching groups is no big thing like some people who come to GC lately seem to think.

We did have really good snacks, haha.

OK, I can understand when guys used to do this during wet rush to get free beer, but in this situation?? WTF!

Honestly, I would notify her chapter president or the Greek advisor. Either she's trying to screw her chapter or screw you guys, or both.

Agreed.
