With friends like these…

Today, I stayed with a friend because I was recently kicked out of my home and had nowhere to go. When I went out for job applications, she asked, "Can you pick me up a pack of smokes?" and then got mad that I didn't have the money, calling me selfish. FML

Sometimes you really just don't have the money. OP had probably counted his money and calculated that he/she just had enough for transport and maybe lunch if they were lucky. Been there, done that. Sometimes you really are just that broke. You can't magically create money in your wallet by just wishing for it. From personal experience, I am guessing that OP would very happily have contributed if they could and will maybe one day find a way to repay the favour. But not today. OP, if you can't find a job, find a way to solve small problems for businesses like becoming a freelance salesperson, delivery guy or maintenance guy. In spite of having an engineering degree, I currently fix machines for engineering shops, help businesses get rid of redundant machines and help them find the stuff they are looking for. I started my business by just handing out businesscards at engineering shops. Good luck!

Let’s see, you’re not paying rent, you’re staying there for free and she asks for a pack of cigarettes which being a non-smoker I would guess is $3 to $5 and you are mad at HER because she got upset with you??? WoW, self entitled or what? Let me guess, was it your parents who threw you out for being a leech?

Depends on where you are in NJ it's. 7.50 in NYC It's 15.00 but I agree with you. OP is already there for free and didn't save anything before that's. on them. If they were living at home they could have done odd jobs and chores for money.
