Friends Don't Let Friends Diss Other Friends

So, I was at a party with with some friends of mine, or should I say, Dillon, Dustin, Kerri, Maria, Jacob, Jesse, and Drew. Now, I was hanging out with Drew and he said something that stuck out to me. He said, "You gotta have thick skin to be friends with me". And, at first I didn't think much of it, but later I started thinking about it. And you know what, I disagree with him completely. Why should have you to have"thick skin" to hang with your 'friends', if that's what they really be?

I mean I understand the friendly poking and prodding, but to what extent?

Here is the definition of "friend" from

Friend: a person attached to another by feelings of affection or personal regard.

I hang with my friends to enjoy myself, let my guard down somewhat. If I want to be insulted all the time. Maybe I will just hang with my enemies more often.

Friends Don't Let Friends Diss Other Friends.
