It's income tax time. I wonder if he got a refund. I bet he's holding out on you. I know the type. There's one in every family.

(Articles II, IV and maybe IX sort of covers your situation)

everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid any more riots,
keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of
debt free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great-grandchildren,
hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense
guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, delusional, and other
liberal bed-wetters.

We hold these truths to be self-evident:

That a whole lot of people are confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim
that they require a Bill of- No-Rights.

ARTICLE I:

You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV or any other form of
wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but no one is
guaranteeing anything.

ARTICLE II:

You do not have the right to never be offended. This country is based on
freedom, and that means freedom for everyone- not just you! You may leave
the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion, etc., but the world
is full of idiots, and probably always will be.

ARTICLE III:

You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you stick a screwdriver
in your eye, learn to be more careful, do not expect the tool manufacturer
to make you and all your relatives independently wealthy.

ARTICLE IV:

You do not have the right to free food and housing. Americans are the most
charitable people to be found, and will gladly help anyone in need, but we
are quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after generation of
professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more than the creation of
another generation of professional couch potatoes.

ARTICLE V:

You do not have the right to free health care. That would be nice, but from
the looks of public housing, we're just not interested in public health
care.

ARTICLE VI:

You do not have the right to physically harm other people. If you kidnap,
rape, intentionally maim, or kill someone, don't be surprised if the rest of
us want to see you fry in the electric chair.

ARTICLE VII:

You do not have the right to the possessions of others. If you rob, cheat
or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens, don't be surprised
if the rest of us get together and lock you away in a place where you still
won't have the right to a big screen color TV or a life of leisure.

ARTICLE VIII:

You don't have the right to demand that our children risk their lives in
foreign wars to soothe your aching conscience. We hate oppressive
governments and won't lift a finger to stop you from going to fight if you'd
like. However, we do not enjoy parenting the entire world and do not want
to spend so much of our time battling each and every little tyrant with a
military uniform and a funny hat.

ARTICLE IX:

You don't have the right to a job. All of us sure want all of you to have
one, and will gladly help you along in hard times, but we expect you to take
advantage of the opportunities of education and vocational training laid
before you to make yourself useful.

ARTICLE X:

You do not have the right to happiness. Being an American means that you
have the right to pursue happiness - which by the way, is a lot easier if
you are unencumbered by an overabundance of idiotic laws created by those of
you who were confused by the Bill of Rights."
This says it all!!

Bravo!!!

Im glad you posted this. Im kinda going through the same thing, kinda. An old friend from school is asking to move in. He is unhappy with where he is now because the people he is staying with are getting tired of him for doing exactly like your friend. Plus he's a pot head and always seems to have money for pot but not food or rent.

A "friend" who is a user is no friend!

Ask him if he wants to get married, if he says no- show him the door....if he says yes....you lose. Sell the place and move.

Gearhead, you're doing the right thing. you know it and we know it. is it easy? no and it may cause hard feeling between the two of you. such is life. you tried to be a good friend and help a buddy out and it sounds like he took advantage of that friendship. hold your head up and let it be known, you did the right thing for the wrong person.

There's no easy way to do it, sorry to say. But it's more important for you to stand up for yourself, especially if he's not even contributing monetarily. I'd say it wouldn't be unfair to give him a week or two max to get things in order, maybe do some research and provide him with some ideas & alternatives, but it's important that you listen to reason & not let emotion break your resolve.

In the end, either he'll be as understanding as possible, like any true friend should, or he'll make you feel like a bad person & throw a fit, which isn't the kind of friend who respects you anyway.

Best of luck.
