    It is ok Niki. The person wasn't joking. Coz I was told by his closed friend who couldn't stand his arrogance. At that stage, I was much more financially sound than this 'ex friend' of mine. Just that I guess I enjoy simpler life without frequenting nightclubs or karaoke lounges

    Tolerance? I am only human My ex friend is now being sued by at least three to four suppliers.

    The best of friends are forged under fire....not rubbing drinks in cozy places.

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

    I'm sure many of us have this sort of experience.
    They are not friends. What are friends for?

    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.

    You loose a friend when you lend them money as when you ask them back, the relationship normally turn sour or he just disappear.

    the 1st time i ever lend money to a friend, is quite a big sum of money especially that period i was still in poly, the amount is a 4 digit sum...which is 1 month of my hard earned ntuc pay.
    was super jumpy/anxious most of the time until he managed to pay me back.

    when i was feeling down, i didnt even get a phone call from them only when they got serious cash flow problems then they sms/phone me.

    well for my friend case, i have since burned the bridges with regards to friendship with him.
