I ain't trying to judge anybody's relationship ' cause they're all different, but your post got me thinking I don't have a single buddy, and I have a few, that would call me dead broke asking for golf and breakfast. Just wouldn't happen, especially if they were dead broke.
You'd have to know that not only had we been golfing buddies, but we had worked together for several years. Then he got a good job as a field superintendent and got me on board when I was looking for a job. As usual in the construction business, my friend's situation changed for the worse. I don't forget those who have helped along the way. I made a hole in one when he was playing with me, he went to a trophy shop and had a trophy made with the event inscribed on it and my name inscribed as well.
