Default Feeling very Unappreciated

To make a long story short I have been working on a so called friends boat since Dec. last year, I have rebuild both motors by myself, (oh He didn't show up to even work on his own motors) put them in, given him all parts at dealer cost, even rushed to get them done for a upcoming Poker run. I have put his boat in front of paying customers, and for not so much as a Thank You!
To top it off at the poker run my boat blew a drive and his worked fine(some break in, WOT out the box)
and after all of this I have not heard from anyone to see if I need some help with mine. Not that I need or want help,
but a phone call or visit would be nice.

Anyone need a friend to use? I'll work free
Just venting, sorry

Got a sticker on my helmet

"friends come and go but enemies accumulate"

Had the same thing happen to me, kept his harley in my garage, always was around when needed something, he is a plummer, i had an issue once with no water, he left me hanging, I called another company, and he asked why? Told him I needed a plumber, my firnd couldnt help so I hired one, he came and got his bike, didnt say much either....

If I could reach through cyber-space and pat you on the back, I would. Unfortunately, I'm left sitting here puzzled why you were used more than a spooge towel at the Bunny Ranch and have decided to remedy the situation by whining about here. Strap on a set, confront the friend, and leave the sympathy seeking threads to jokers like Stecz or those that suffer from chronic low-nutitis, like Cuda.

Thank you. I'll be here all week. Please be sure to tip your waitress.
