I was totally taken by surprise when Kyle said he was no longer able to afford paying me and that he had been paying me out of personal savings for more than 17 months. I was crushed because I literally had no idea this was the case.

I was shocked to hear that because, in that same time frame, Kyle had bought a brand new home, added an elaborate custom pool and jacuzzi with a beautiful pool house, bought himself a Viper (with cash) and got his wife a boob job and a Cadillac Escalade. I was happy for Kyle and his family but this obviously did not indicate to me that he was having money problems. As it turns out, Kyle was NOT having financial difficulties, he fired his friend and coworker of 20 years just to save money.
