Do you have that one friend or associate who only calls on you when they need something? You haven’t heard from them in weeks or even months and all of a sudden out of nowhere they show up or because they are going to be near you they want to connect? Real friends don’t just pop up when it’s convenient. Real friends show love all the time.
Its frustrating when you think someone is in your corner for the long haul and they really only want to interact because it provides some convenience for them. Maybe they just want to kick it or maybe they just want you to drop some coin on them while they are in your presence.
I get it all the time. It can be as simple as phone calls wanting to borrow excessive amounts of cash to needing to use something that you have or something as simple as would you like too…. with the intent that you are going to pay for any and everything. A few weeks ago I had a person that I used to hear from on the regular call me and ask me to borrow a thousand dollars. First of all, I haven’t heard from you in 6 months so HELLO… I’m not sure why you’d think I’d have a G just sitting around anyways and if you really knew me, you’d know that December to January is the poorest month cycle of the year for me.
Honestly it takes me til March to get back on track 100% in my budgeting because of the way I get paid during those months. I’m sitting around eating egg sandwiches and I’m supposed to drop a G on you and let you ball out of control? Not hardly.
Maybe I’m reading too much into this but it’s not a good look. If we are cool enough for you to ask me for something or want something from me, we should be having conversation more frequently. Just a random thought.
