i tend to be the sort of guy you can "use" a few times, because i give them the benefit of the doubt initially but i do keep tabs on exactly how it
goes between us.
a work mate pretends to be your mate, gets your number. then you get calls at home "hi how are you" and before you can even reply they blurt out
"hey ive got computer trouble, can you..."
if they are the sort i only ever hear from when they need something, theyll eventually get from me "ooh a virus huh, nasty.. nar never heard of that
one, sorry cant help"
(i find that easier than just saying "your just using me, f off and go pay a PC shop $40 per hour like every other moron")
a few long term mates (people i thought were true friends) would get me to fix a computer for them, but then they start to expect it from you while
taking no responsibility themselves.
once i even heard a mate say "nar dont do that, youll cause more probs" to which friend #2 replied "thats ok, bliv's here he will fix it if i
stuff it up"
so the next time ill be naar, sorry, cant help you this time. but i tried to show you last time so you should be able to wing it, give it a go.
and i leave them in the lurch to learn a lesson the hard way, that they should have paid attention when i tried to teach them.
im not rude to them, i just let em know i cant help them and leave it to them to sort out.
the key to finding who is a true friend is to not bother them for anything, dont call or drop by for a while and see how often they call or drop by
your place just to say hi how ya doing...or maybe they just call and blurt "hey i got a problem can you......."
thats the quickest way to find who your true friends are.
lately ive lost a few because when they pay me out as a joke ive started to give them # in return, or because i refuse to be someone elses puppet..
some people can give # but they go on a tirade when they get paid out in return. (i hate hypocrits and "users" - theyre all so selfish)
the old saying is true... a dog really IS mans best friend. they dont judge or expect anything except some food and company. and they give a whole
bunch of love and loyalty back in return.
