A Grifter's Life [Hey, You!]

A Grifter's Life [Hey, You!]
Bob Aul

We became friends in an odd way, but I supported you through a tough time while you were out of work. You said you'd pay me back all of it, as you didn't want to be like your mother, who ripped off her ex-husbands. But in the end you took another $1,400 of my generosity and went into hiding. Is this the path forward you seek: a grifter's life? Looking pretty in front of the camera won't cover the ugliness of your actions. And those close to you will learn this.
