"Joseph, I assume from one of your other posts that you've left school and haven't gone to sixth form? I know when you've first left school finding friends can seem a bit daunting but it needn't be. You need to create a lifestyle…"
"Another course of action: the next time one of these parasites ask for for a favor, tell him "No" point blank. When he asks why, remind of how he still owes you for all the other stuff you've done for him. You never know, it…"
"i have to say -- There are no victims only volunteers - Just for in the future, you shouldn't give money or do favors under the assumption that you will be paid back in kind. It just a resentment waiting to happen. If you can't do it…"

I'l give you guys a bit of a back story, right now i'm at a point in my life where the only friends I have take advantage of me and even thought I help them every day they never do anything in return.
