I believe they call it Vlad Pro Quo. But first, you'll need you to do us a favor.

Gotta be careful when you shake some people's hand. You could end up with one less finger.

My favorite quip from the old television show Cheers: "I can't be bought, and I can't be threatened; but put the two together and I'm your man!"

I thought sensible folks went with the free trial period first?



Being courteous and civil, unless there's a reason not, is a given, and making acquaintances easily is healthy. But real friends have demonstrated their qualities and earned their beret the hard way. And vice versa. No-one buys their way in.



Just my two cents



That said it's very common that, given the opportunity, self-important people choose 'friends' who they think will reflect well on them. Is that what Fig is referring to? A version of 'brown-nosing'?

As far as I know I've never had someone try to buy my friendship. On the other hand, I don't have many friends.

I just get people who will act like I don't exist and call me when they need free legal advice or want me to negotiate a major purchase for them. They didn't try to buy friendship, they just want to use me.

I've had a lot of people act like friends when they want something

True friends are very few, but you know them when you are the one that's down

Hey..look who's here..!

"I could use a good friend."

Like the woman on the street said,

"You can't buy me! ...

But it is possible to ...

rent me."
