My father has a best friend all the way from childhood to where they work for the same company today. My Dad's friend's Dad was somewhat of an alcoholic and lost alot of what they had playing poker and gambling while growing up
. It's kinda rough when he just busts my Dad's balls w/ lines like "well my sons aren't lucky enough to win the lottery" etc etc. and my Dad can't reply. I mean, he can't directly insult his friend really no matter how true it is, right? Pretty lame situation for my Dad nowadays.
