2021.10.28 09:23 justacommonnerd I think I’m getting taken advantage of by a friend of mine.
Long post ahead, guys. TL;DR: I have been doing favors for my friend and she has not showed any kind of indication that she will return them. I think she’s taking advantage of my kindness and good heart.
I am beginning to think my friend is taking advantage of me and it’s really starting to piss me off. To set the tone, we became friends a little over a year ago through school when I started my masters, and we are both roughly the same age. She grew up much more privileged than I did and it shows in how she acts towards people and things around her. We’re both in grad school and naturally the “poor grad student” trope is something we joke about a lot, but the difference is that I am actually poor (I’ve been working 2-3 jobs all throughout undergrad and grad school to pay my bills and rent, while also financially helping my single mom) whereas she is the kind of “poor” that is still okay with dropping hundreds of dollars in a club or on a meal. In short, we have different lifestyles and attitudes towards money.
I started to become suspicious back in May, when she asked me to drop her off at the airport for a trip she was taking. I thought it was no big deal some friends do these kinds of favors for each other and I thought that she’d offer money for gas and the $5 toll to get there. I distinctly remember filling up my car at the gas station on the way, and her joking about how gas prices were going up without offering me a single dime. I then proceeded to drive her to the airport in rush hour traffic. She asked if I could pick her up as well, to which I told her I had plans otherwise and we left it at that.
Cut to the next two months. She’s going on yet another vacation and again asked me to take her to the airport. Already annoyed about the first time, I did so reluctantly and she pinned it on me last minute that she had no one to pick her up when she returned and I would need to pick her up too. Again, here I went driving into Philly in rush-hour traffic to drive her over and in the middle of the drive, she told me her other friends that she was going with were also driving over as well. This was a crucial detail that she left out and I immediately wondered why the hell they couldn’t have just dropped by to get her since they were all going to the same place? Again, she offered no gas money or toll money while I inconvenienced myself yet again to drop her off at the airport, and then pick her up at 1am when she returned after her flight got delayed. At this point, I have very well decided that I wouldn’t be doing her anymore favors going forward. I’m not one to keep tabs on things like that, but I was noticing that it was all very one-sided and I was not happy about it. Noticing this, she began to disguise her favor requests to an extent by asking for small favors (eg. “can you bring weed over when you come since I’m running low so we can both use it?”, “can we go to Costco together, and since we’re already there, can we also go to [insert random errands I never signed up for]?”). I had already decided I was done with the favors and subtly got out of doing them.
Perhaps what was the final straw was yesterday night. Her birthday was last week and she had planned for her and a group of friends, including myself, to go to a club together for her birthday. This isn’t really my scene, so in a stroke of luck I began to feel sick the day before the event and was able to get out of it. I was relieved because why the hell would I want to go to a club with her and these guys and girls, who are all single and getting trashed, as the girl who is not single and not getting trashed? It felt like a bum deal to me and I figured I would just become the babysitter mom friend anyway, so I was happy to get out of the plans. However, I still wanted to celebrate with her so I told her we could meet up another time and I would take her out for a birthday meal.
The normal thing to do when someone offers to take you out, especially when you know they are financially strapped, is pick a conservative place to eat and not go all out spending money on someone else’s dime. At least that’s how I was raised. However, it seems she didn’t get the memo on this. What turned into a “let’s do brunch for your birthday”-type thing became a dinner and she ended up picking one of the most expensive restaurants I have ever been to. Seriously, I was floored at the lack of consideration. She had taken me out for my birthday earlier in the year and we did brunch together, which of course is much more affordable, and I did not go out of my way to spend crazy amounts of money there on her tab. But when the time came for me to treat her, she picked this crazy expensive place, asked me to drive us over, and then ordered an entire four-course meal (drink, appetizer, meal, and dessert) that came out to way more than I was willing to spend. I was almost in tears when the bill came and all she could say was “it was only X dollars per person, so it wasn’t that bad at all” as consolation. Yeah, easy for you to say when you’re not the one footing this enormous bill. She texted me when I was back home thanking me and telling me how much she enjoyed our “little adventure,” despite the fact that there was nothing little about this fucking adventure.
I am extremely pissed off now and really reconsidering our entire friendship. The fact that she has continually asked me for favors at a disproportionate rate, especially in the past few months, without returning them has me incredibly pissed and put off from hanging out with her. It has gotten to the point where I’m seriously reconsidering this friendship. I like her as a person, but I have gone out of my way for this girl on more than one occasion yet she has not indicated any intent to return these favors. The worst of it is that it seems like she’s either oblivious to it, or doing it intentionally and just gaslighting me.
How should I even handle this? Should I confront her about it and raise a discussion? Should I start a slow-fade and ultimately stop being friends with her? This is the first time this has happened to me in a friendship and I am new to dealing with this, so I would love some advice. At this point, even if this is repairable, the dynamic will change significantly and I am done being the friend that gets used. Thanks in advanced for your advice!!

2021.10.28 09:23 Dragonfly_Tight Haizaki in last game
I would have loved if haizaki showed up in last game. Maybe during the bar scene and called silver and gold bakas or something. Would've been really cool to see him stand up for kuroko, especially since he's always slacking off at bars.
Or even during the game. If when Kise and Murasakibara were out due to Injury. Then midorima hurts his arm. When the team needs someone to play (the subs weren't up to par).He coulda stepped in, said some badass line about how the americans are (insert profanity here) and filled in for 5 minutes while midorima Heals his arm.
Especially since we got the conclusion that he likes basketball and even liked playing with teiko at the end of his Match with Kise.
Even just to have him show up and comment on the game would have been cool. Even to see teiko pissed off at him for jumping in (as he always does).

2021.10.28 09:23 JivingToddle Don't Invest what you can't afford
Hi guys, I just wanted to make a quick post about this. I think it's important to occasionally re-emphasise that people should probably avoid putting in large chunks of money that they'd need if they lost it.
If you invest what you can't afford, you'll likely freak out whenever there is a dip. I've seen numerous posts on reddit where people have chosen to put money into various stocks or cryptocurrencies rather than covering their basic needs: Food, rent/ mortgage, utility bills etc.
It's your money, so it's entirely up to you what you do with it, but I'd recommend you put in only what you can afford (and can afford to lose) - that way you won't freak out too much if there's a dip. 🙂
That being said, do what you wish and I hope you make loads of money 😁😁
