Anybody know what I'm talkin about?
I like chillin with my friends, a group of about 4 dudes and 3 chicks or so, they're all cool, and we have fun when we chill.
But every now and then, some of em bring along this other guy, of whom I can't freaking stand. The sort of guy that is always trying to siphon money out of his friends for his latest moneymaking scheme/hobby/spur-of-the-moment idea. Always has big plans and talks at great legnth about them, but never follows through with anything. A bull**** artist.
Now, I'm a pretty passive person. I'm not prone to hating people. And I dont hate this guy, I just dislike the **** outta him.
I'm not alone though; none of the girls in our group ever want to hang out with him because he's a misognyistic prick. The dudes hang out with him cause he's "fun". I have to wonder why this potent mixture of ignorance and arrogance seems so attractive to other males. I tried talkin w/ a few of them about it, and while I'll get a *mild* agreement from a couple of em, the other two just brush it off. "He's a fun guy", "nah dude, he's a fun-GUS".
My solution? Hang out with the chicks. If the others wanna hang out with a prick so be it, I just won't be around to share in the idiocy.
Not really an advice-seeking thread, more of a venting thread. But, hey, will a dancing banana do?
