    So I've got an old friend, who's turned into a damn slacker (Cole). He mooches off his girlfriend (Angie), who has tried to get people (his friends) to stand with her on things, and apparently I'm the only one who does. He has no job, and claims he's been looking for one daily for the past ~8 months.

    Bull****. :mad:

    Anyway, what can I do that try to get him straightened out and a productive member of society? I wouldn't be opposed to beating the hell out of him at this point... :doah:

    try all you may, if he doesn't want to, then there's nothing you can do about it. I tried with a friend of mine, even went 15 yrs without speaking to him, and yet he still continues to do the things I still don't approve of.

    One cannot help those who refuse to help themselves.

    That said, your best bet is to call it quits on the friendship. Tell him exactly why you're doing it. He'll probably call you names and tell you to go **** yourself, but in the future, when and if he does get his **** together, you can probably patch things up because he'll understand then.

    My "nephew" decided that he knew what was goin' on, and **** what everyone else thought, so I said, figure it out, and until you do, don't darken my doorstep. After no contact for about a year, he shows up at my place about three weeks ago, and seems to have pulled his head out somewhat. About the only thing you can do is let them work it out on their own, or not. But until they do, **** 'em.

    Maybe try an intervention? Gather a group of friends together, sit him down and give him some tough love. Places like Auto Zone and such are always hiring. Sure it's not the greatest job in the world, but at least it is money coming in... Maybe give him apps for places like that...

    Well, looks like he's shaping up. Had an interview at Wendy's today. I guess when he found out he got the interview, the first thing he said to his girl was "Can we go see Naniel?" Looks a lot better.

    video tape him daily for a couple of days and make him watch it. Just to see if he realizes how much of a slacker he really is.

    ditch him, and if you lower your standards, you increase your productivity...
