Bad Friends by: Amber Ditmore
There are all kinds of bad friends. There are some who will come into a person’s life and quickly
leave. Some friends will be there for a lifetime. One type of friend is the bad friend. Bad friends are
those people who should be avoided, at all costs. Once they have found their place in someone’s life, it
is rare that they ever leave. They mooch and make life entirely miserable.
One type of bad friend is “The User.” This is the type of friend that only comes around when
there is something to offer him or her. This friend never calls just to chit-chat. They probably don’t even
care what is going on in their friend’s life. “The User” is only interested in what can be done for him or
her. This friend will call to borrow money, but will never pay the money back. He or she will ask for a
ride to work because their car is broke down. However, when their friend’s car is broke down and they
need a ride, this friend always has something else going on. “The User” never has any intention of
paying money back or helping out in any situation. He is very self involved, and literally could care less
about anyone but himself.
Another type of bad friend is “The Partier.” This type only comes around when there is a party.
He or she might call periodically to see what I planned for the night. If their friend’s plan is to sit around
Children all over the world suffer everyday from bad home life, born with health problems, no shelter, abusive parents, not having enough food or water to have a good living. Majority of the children are robbed of their childhood. Everyone has heard about the problems in Africa mainly children dying of lack of food and clean water causing malnutriton. After researching more about what caught my ...
and watch television, then that friend will not come over. However, if their friend tell him or her that
there is a party he or she will be there in a matter of seconds. This type is usually unemployed. This
friend’s life’s mission is to get drunk and terrorize other people’s houses.
The final type is “The Bragger.” “The Bragger” will only call when he or she has something to
brag about. If the bragger bought a new house, bought a new car, or got a great job promotion at work,
he or she will want everyone to know about it. However, the new house, the new car, or the promotion
have to be better than everyone else’s, and they want everyone to know it. When something great
happens in their friend’s life, it is better just to find someone else to listen. “The Bragger” doesn’t want
anything good to happen to anyone but him or her. If something good happens to someone, they have
to work harder so they can look better. This type usually is very spoiled and will cry and whine until they
get his or her way.
Bad friends such as “The User”, “The Partier”, and “The Bragger” will become a drain on life.
These people will make the ring of a phone a big fear. They will take everything that is offered to them,
and have nothing in return. These bad friend’s need friends have to be friends of one-sided, selfish, and
always on the loosing end.
