There Is No Accounting For….Part II

English: me and my friend

English: me and my friend (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

People sometimes handle people like they do finances in my previous post.  They are often found getting others to take their side and listen to their story.  These other people might even fight their battles for them.  They are takers, not givers.  They forget to pay their debts of friendship and may even betray their current friend when something better comes along.  The relationship can be one sided and the benefits are all going one way.  Instead of repaying their debt, the takers move on when something better comes along and may forget that their former friend even exists.

There are two sides to every issue.  Your fair weather friend seems misunderstood and you rescue them.  Often found when one half of a divorce or separation tells people in new relationships that they make that the new person or persons is not like the previous person that they had the unsatisfactory relationship with.  When they turn on you (if they do) you will be just like their ex and they will be talking about you in negative ways, revealing things that you thought they would keep secret, (except for this) forgetting that you ever existed.  No returned phone calls, unexplained irrational behavior, not showing up for planned events, leaving you holding the bag if money and expenses were involved.  Then their friends and family (if they are still talking to you) come out of the woodwork and tell the whole story about what this person is like and what they have done in the past.
