    there's got to be some phrase for this

    A friend came over and I was playin' a game and I was trying to finish it up (i know totally rude but we see eachother all the time.) but she ended up leaving, she wasn't mad. Well anyway later that week her and I were visiting some other friends and she said, "I don't like going to your house, you ALWAYS play your game." This isn't the first time she's done stuff like that.
    So what I'd like to know is is there a phrase for someone who does this; have something happen once then proclaim it to ALWAYS be that way?
