You’ve seen them. You’ve heard them. You probably live with one.
You know the type.
You invite him or her over for the cookout, family or social get together and they show up empty handed – but leave with leftovers and a bottle of wine.
You carpool with him and they can’t ever seem to come up with a reliable car or reliable reimbursement plan for your fuel costs.
You babysit their Babe Babe kids, and they never offer you financial compensation or free babysitting for your kids.
They always have a story and never a visible means of support.
Back in the day they were called, “shiftless”.
In case there are some people out there that have a problem identifying “a freeloading ass motherfucker” here are 10 characteristics of that person that will take, take, take until you cut them off.
1. They’re always asking for something and won’t stop asking until they get something.
2. They are always in your bed, on your sofa, in your refrigerator, and your pockets. Don’t you think if you’re getting up going to a job every morning EVERY abled body adult in your house should be doing the same?
3. Smokes – everybody else’s cigarettes. Smokes everybody else’s weed.
4. Shows up at every cookout, reunion, get together – empty handed. Leaves with copious amounts of food wrapped in aluminum foil. Leaves full of your liquor and beer.
5. Lives off of a woman and tries to spin it as some accomplishment of achieving a strong “pimp hand”. Out of earshot of said woman that is. Lives off of a man and spins it as sex for accommodations and amenities.
6. They no qualms about taking money from their kids. They have no qualms about stealing money from their kids.They have no qualms about stealing money from you.
7. Always needs a ride everywhere except to work.
8. Lives anywhere except at his or her own place. In this era of economic depression and doubled down unemployment some well-meaning and aspiring folks are going to wind up home with their parents, aunts, sisters, brothers and Grand Parents. Some not so well meaning folks are gong to wind up with these folks too. If old girl or dude has been laying in someone else’s cut for years, they’ve set up shop to freeload. If they haven’t found employment or figured out a hustle in five years or more it’s because they already have both. Both in the one context of freeloading.
9. They’re a deadbeat parent. If someone has come after them for C-Sup that pretty much should tell you they ain’t trying to pay for shit. What makes us think someone that won’t take care of their own flesh and blood will take a vested interest in ours is a quandary I’m yet to figure out.
10. They don’t have any ambition to do shit but offer excuses to cloak their freeloading.
I’m going to leave you with this to sip on real slow.
If you’re an older person involved with a person with no aspirations or intentions toward achieving dual or singular sufficiency – you’re involved free loader.
