We all want that one friend who will show up for us with little to no questions asked when we need them.

This is especially true for rainy days when you are at the bottom of the pits. The converse is, however, truer as it is often on those 'bad days' where it feels like all of the friends in your life have suddenly disappeared.

"Sharing is a good thing, send some R1000 or R2000 as a gift, it's still a good gesture ... R10K that's a statement. Money doesn't define friendship but its disposition is a huge sacrifice for someone who gives."

To which the original user @zindziswa_m said:
