Successful Mooching or How to Live Off Of Someone’s Couch.

Living for free is an admirable skill, at least, here at ‘Monday’ it is. This is one of the articles where I’m going to advocate meeting friends, because the more friends you have the more you can live off them without wearing out your welcome. While we here at ‘Monday’ are really anti-social in nature one good benefit of having friends is mooching off of them. Others in no particular order are meeting more women, getting more gifts, being able to have fun with the guys maybe to the point of being lazy, and being more dependent on others so you can be less independent.

So how do we successfully mooch off of our friends. For one thing having a lot as said above means not spending too much time with any one friend, so you have less of a chance of getting kicked out and wearing out your welcome, maybe even hurting the chances of staying friends with them. We don’t want that, we want more friends so we can get more free stuff. More free lunches more help ala Tom Sawyer and so on.

Pitch in for small household chores. We don’t want them thinking we’re lazy even though we actually are. So do the little things like sweeping or vacuuming. Pretend to be ‘pulling your own weight’. Or actually be pulling your own weight because you can still live for free if you’re doing chores. Since your mooching, though, and not cleaning their house for a living, don’t try too hard.

If you’re trying to mooch off your girlfriend why not create a date payment rotation plan, and then when it’s your turn to pay, make it as low cost and cheap as possible, and then when it’s her turn suggest some expensive restaurant. Make sure the expensive date is something that she wants to do, that is she may not want to do it at the time you are mooching off of her, but try to pick up on restaurants and places she wants to go that are more expensive, that way when it’s her turn to pay she will feel like it’s her idea.

Conveniently forget your cash. Even if you actually have cash (which I do not recommend since if you have cash you won’t have an excuse not to pay) forget to go get it. This way the friend or girlfriend will end up footing your bill. A better solution is not to have a job and therefore never to have money.

Hopefully you now have some good ideas on how to mooch off your friends.

Until ‘Monday’
