Okay, probably a poor choice of words on my part. Phil does live tugboat to tugboat. I mean we've seen how irresponsible he is with money. We don't really know about his troon friend, but yeah, its not a lot of money. That being said, would you drop $170 on someone else? I mean aside from like a kid or your parents or spouse? I'm certainly willing to give my friends rides or help them move, but spending over a hundred dollars on someone simply because I feel sorry for them? Not sure I'd go that far. Then again who knows with the troon squad.$170 is not a lot of money (Ruger LCP on sale typical price). even for someone living paycheck to paycheck on minimum wage or SSDI; it's a few months savings at absolute worst. if a third of his income is for rent, another third for consumables (toiletries, food, et c), that leaves a quarter to a third for sundries. even if he wasn't thrifty, it does take a little effort to spend yourself into poverty - even poor decisions require you to get up and click "buy now" or get to a counter and open the wallet.
