  • Who’s your REAL friends and where are they?

    Oct 25

    It never fails to amaze me how much of an asshole people who claim to be your “friends” really are! Take for instance the current economic state our country is in. I’m sure there are others out there, like myself, who have been out of work for some extended period of time. And I’m sure that at least a few of your “friends” have said to you at least one time or another, “Hey, I know what your are going through. If you ever need anything, let me know and I’ll be glad to do my best to help you out.”

    YOU know what I am going through?? I’ve been out of work for over TWO FUCKING YEARS! YOU go to your job everyday and collect your paycheck at the end of the week. My unemployment ran out long ago! YOU are able to pay your bills every month without worrying which medication you will have to stop taking to keep the roof over your family’s head. So don’t tell me YOU know how I feel.

    Oh, and as for the “If you ever need anything, let me know and I’ll be glad to do my best to help you out.” I NEED A JOB! When I told you what my skills and qualifications are and that I am open to do anything for a paycheck to help support my family, that didn’t mean for you to turn your back and completely act like I never existed. You said you were a friend, act like one.

    You may not know of any jobs right now, but don’t ignore my calls or emails just because I am out of work. Just because I can’t afford to go out to eat at a fancy restaurant, why can’t we have a get together at one of our places?

    Money helps move things in this world, but it should have no bearing on friendship! Now I know who the real friends are!
