Ever since I was a child, my mother raised me to recognize and appreciate various

kinds of friends.   There are three different kinds of friends in this life.   I classify them

according to how well I know them and how well they know me.   We encounter each of them

everyday, whether in school, home, or at the gym.   However, we rarely spend much time actually

thinking about and classifying these people.   First, there are the "pest friends"- general

with them, but if anything else came up, you usually would have no problem parting company.

You normally don’t miss them when they are elsewhere.   It is also this type of friends who

give you the most amount of aggravation.   Since most of the time you are placed in a position

where you have to act friendly, such as school or work, you would not normally tell an

acquaintance when he or she is doing something aggravating, such as tapping the fingers an a

table or chewing gum loudly.   This is why I call them "pest friends."

                The second category of friends I call "social partners."   This is because they

are closer than acquaintances, but no where near as close as a true friend.   Social partners

are usually acquaintances who evolve into "guest friends" through increased extracurricular

activities. You know their name, a little of what they like or dislike, a little of their
