Friend will stand by you even when you are wrong…

A real friend doesn’t have to.

A simple friend opens a conversation with a full news bulletin on his life.
A real friend says, “What’s new with you?”

A simple friend thinks the problems you whine about are recent.
A real friend says, “You’ve been whining about the same thing for 14 years.
Get off your duff and do something about it.”

A simple friend has never seen you cry.
A real friend has shoulders soggy from your tears.
