    They will fall and fall hard.

    I had a colleague who was marked to take a leader post, he was arrogant and boastful. But when his boss failed, he fell and fell hard! So the morale of the story is to have many friends and help as many people as possible so that no matter what happen to you, you still stand tall!

    Remember, we grow together!

    Are we not CS member?

    In real life some people just enjoying seeing you down.

    And when you're up, they are just jealous.

    I'm sure many of us have this sort of experience.

    I would agree with niki, though to be on the positive side. Having successful friends would mean help me to see which friends are keepers and which ones are not. Those that only find you for coffee when they are down and out and when they are successful, they do not even have the time to call you - those are the ones that really "boh sim" and should be discarded.

    Like the chinese saying, "long pain might as well short pain".

    Not so bad lah.

    I had friends who borrowed money numerous times. When they thought they are successful. Coz I live a simple life. The same buggers called me "pauper". Then again, some how when they fell from grace.

    I found them either door knocking or asked a third party to mediate..... The worst case? The bugger came to my house and drank all the beers from my fridge. And before he left, he said I am sorry and can we be friend again.

    calling someone, let alone a friend, a 'pauper' is too much.. even if the person is joking.. its still way too much.. the person/ppl are juz plain obnoxious... i envy ur tolerance
