A friend of ours is going through major money problems. Part of it is his fault, part of it is his having to take a major cut in pay when he got laid off.
We were out at his house this evening helping another friend who is staying with him for the weekend. When we got ready to leave, he flat out asked me how much I was donating to the "Save the "mythical animal" fund" It took me a second to think what he meant before I told him Nothing. He looked at me and I said that it was not possible. He looked at me again with a surprised look on his face. I reminded him that I had just been given 30 days notice at work and every penny counts until I find another job. He KNEW I had been given notice because we had just been talking about the interview that I have tomorrow.
Just have to shake my head sometimes. He is a wonderful guy and I do care for him. I was just really put out to have him come out and try to corner me in front of a bunch of other friends.
