Since you are posting the same issue about the same person several years apart it sounds like an ongoing problem that is really bothering you.

So, I can't help but wonder why you are friends with this person. It sounds like they are a financial parasite that do nothing but annoy you. Can you count on them to help you out in non-monetary ways if needed like give you a ride or help you move?

You are not being unfair. Once something is agreed upon by all parties that is that. He shoudn[t expect you to change your mind or pay for things you have made clear you are not going to pay for or not going to do.

Is there some reason why R doesn't pay for things? Honest lack of means or just cheap?

It's tricky. Back when we were 17, most of us got trained or got qualifications he got a job delivering pizzas and got a clapped out car.

All he ever did when we met girls was him going on about the car. Now everyone is qualified, he works in a factory putting cakes into boxes and now putting fish in boxes.

His younger brother who has mental health issues was promoted over him after a month at the factory.

I do feel sorry for him in a way, he's always wanted a house but he doesn't have any financial sense. He got a loan to buy a car and then a credit card which he used on crap, milkshakes, fuel etc. He then got a bigger loan to pay off the previous loan and credit card. He then maxed out his credit card again, got a bit off extra money through a second loan and then did it all over again. He owed £40,000 ($30,000).

He ended up becoming bankrupt. His wife ignored a parking fine and then got a CCJ. No house for them.

He does however have my back in other ways. K had a habit of trying to get off with other people's girl-friends and dancing strangely in night clubs. R and I have had to sort various issues out and there was a particularly hairy incident where we had each other's back. There is some mutual respect there.
