Have you ever dumped a friendship due to being used monetary or summer house for free wise?

I once dumped a friendship because this couple we were friends with wanted to come down to a condo we had down south. It was so bad that they booked tickets without telling us my hubby casually asked if they wanted to come down for a long weekend, They ended coming for almost ten days and wanted my husband to carpool them to the beach where they were getting drunk and then wanted to go out clubbing. We had a young son with us and it was crazy! The chick even dyed her hair in my mil's spotless bathroom that became dirty,ugh. It was the best when I personally dumped the friendship for my hubby who also had had it with his friend too.

  • I've dumped 2 friends like that..

    First one, I told her she and 2 of her friends could pay rent at the house we had in OKC after we moved up to South Dakota (hub went into the military AFTER we had purchased a house in OKC in HOPES to get stationed at Tinker...of course it didn't work out that way). She apparently consistently stole from those 2 friends, didn't pay rent...on time, and even when I did get money, it definitely wasn't the full amount. Then after all 3 finally got out, she left me with a $200+ electric bill (when there was a credit on the electric bill of over $100), plus whatever rent amount she never paid. And it wasn't like I was asking much either...$300 for a 2 bedroom house was CHEAP for OKC.

    The other one stayed at our place here for a few months...we had to force them to start paying us SOMETHING because it was getting a bit ridiculous. After they moved out, they left some stuff here....cont.

  • I haven't had to dump anyone for use of OUR stuff..but for others. . I had a 'friend' who used people like that. for condos, boats, camping trips. She literally bailed on me who she called her BFF for an evtire summer after meeting a couple with a boat. They invited themselves practically every weekend after they were invited ONCE first. The couple with the boat dropped them..and I quit hanging out and returning calls. It is really all you can do. They aren't your friends. They are just users.

  • I did. She was my best friend from 6th grade up. But her lifestyles was totally something I couldn't agree with. She has two young kids, but wanted to party, get drunk and cheat on her husband. Not something I nor my kids need to be around.

  • I sent her a txt after about a month of them not getting the rest of their stuff out saying that they needed to get it out by x date or legally it would become our property. She sent txt back saying "tyvm for being so rude considering my g-ma just died." I'm sitting here thinking "HOW THE FUCK AM I SUPPOSE TO KNOW THAT SINCE THE ONLY TIME YOU'VE CONTACTED ME SINCE YOU MOVED WAS TO GET A RIDE TO WAL-MART FOR GROCERIES?!?!" All she had to say was "contact *bf*, I'm a bit indisposed right now" or similar.

  • I actually called the police asking them what the statute of limitations was on holding someone's property at our place was. I was told after either 30 days or 60 days (I can't remember which it was...I think 30 days), property would become mine, and they could do nothing legally if I were to sell/give it away.

  • The FIRST time she did it, I just ignored her request (I didn't know about blocking people then). The second time I received a friend request, I knew how to block people, and blocked her. So now she can never see my page.

  • Babybugsmama yay for you. Definitely toxic... I know the feeling. You need to get away from circle of friends like that. She will lose her kids if she continues to party and sooner or later will get busted for either drinking while driving or for drugs...
