Admin please help me share this and hide my name. I have a toxic friend who is in a toxic relationship with a toxic woman, one addicted to gambling and the other addicted to visiting KTV. It’s completely none of my business, but I really buay lun seeing them wasting their life and money away.
My friend, Aloysius (not his real name) earns about $2k per month before CPF deduction, and his gf makes about $2.5k or $3k, I’m not sure, at a recruitment agency.
So they are the type of couple who break up then make up then break up then make up, until we lost count of the number of times they broke up and got back together already, very toxic.
And the problem here is his gf is a hardcore gambler. Singapore pools, casino, mahjong, Chinese new year gambling etc, as long as it’s gambling, she is in.
She doesn’t even watch football, but can bet $200 on the arsenal man city match, then lose all the money. Play blackjack also whack 3 figures like she print money. Please la, you earn how much only…
While the guy is addicted to visiting ktv to play with girls. One night can spend about $500 to $600 per session then after that if he feels like it, another $300 to dabao the girl.
So what happens when they run out of money? they come to me. Girlfriend gamble until left literally $2? come to me. Boyfriend play girl until no money to eat? come to me. Limpeh look like what? Your father ah? Your atm ah?
But I’d like to think that I am a good friend, I always lend them money because I’ve been broke before and I know how it feels, but not because of the stupid things that they are doing.
So far in total, they owe me about $9.5k, and I can sense they are going to borrow money from me again, but this time I’m not helping anymore. this is too much. I’m not too affected financially by them borrowing money, because I make 5 figures a month doing IT sales. But they are the ones who need to wake up.
They need to learn a lesson, let them starve until they wake up their idea, don’t come and ask me for money anymore.
