But except for one person who drunkenly voiced her disapproval one night — an outburst that did little but create tension, Wiedner said — everyone kept their mouths shut. Luckily, she was right. Finally fed up, her friend broke up with the guy, and Wiedner and her pals breathed a sigh of relief and confessed their long-simmering concerns.
