Those Friends That Are Only Friends When They Need Something

We all have those kind of people in our lives don’t we? I’m pretty sure everyone does and maybe everyone even does it with realizing it.

Talking to a person only because you can gain something from them. Not because you want to talk to them. Not because you enjoy their company. Not because you guys are friends or anything.

More like acquaintances. A familiar face that you just pass by and don’t acknowledge but make sure to keep in the back of your mind in case they come in handy. I get it. I really do. But isn’t that like taking advantage of somebody? If you already have too many friends that you don’t want to talk to me any other time because you’re busy with your other friends, well why don’t you ask those friends for help? Why don’t you ask them for the homework, for the study sheets, for tutoring help. Oh that’s right, they won’t be able to help you with that.

You just can’t have the best of both worlds here. Make friends that you like and will help you out. Don’t depend on people you hardly talk to for stuff and then not thank them.

That’s another thing. How hard is it to say “Thank you”? Two words, it doesn’t take rocket science to get them out of your mouth.

So I guess those “friends” aren’t really friends. Just acquaintances. That’s all.
