Its pretty safe to say that every single human being and even some trees have friends. Humans are social creatures after all, and with out friends, there is no one to feel superior to.
So it strikes me as odd when people no long contact their friends or make any effort on their behalf to maintain a friendship. The main cause of this (I have noticed, so don’t think its scientific) is due to the person current hole.
For those of you who don’t know to which i refer, a hole, or current hole is your significant other. Its that person you are shagging, but not seriously. There’s no talk of marriage, cause frankly, you only know what she (or he. I don’t discriminate) looks like on her back… Back to my point, once said person finds another hole, they decide you don’t exist, unless they want something, or have a question, or you can make their life easier, or my current favourite at the moment , when you can do something for their hole to make their hole give them more play time.
I realise I might sound bitter, but to me, friendship is a two way street. Maybe a three or four way if its group activity. You seem to have gone out of your way to help your friend and what do you get for it? Nothing apart from more things you can do to make them and their holes happy.
In fact this week alone, I have answered more questions from my friends having technical problems than I have been asked what I am doing or what my plans are for the weekend.
So next time you want help with something, remember the last time you actually called me to have a conversation… Yeah, neither can I.
