    Have you seen a friend change for business/money?

    Have you been unfortunate to have business between your friendship? So much so that you would hesitate t call your friend that knowingly or unknowingly business would come up that you are least interested in at the moment?

    I have seen some so called friendships change for the most irrelevant things.  I guess at some point one will know better and accept the fact that what you have with this individual may not be a friendship after all.  Personally I don't believe that I would continue a friendship or any kind of relationship that made me feel a way when having to have to communicate
