There are friends with a little "f" & friends with a big "F".
The 1st is a large group with sloppy admission standards,
the other an elite, time-tested crew.

What's the Difference?

A little "f" friend: identifies themselves when they call.
A big "F" Friend: doesn't have to.

A little "f" friend: opens a conversation with a full news bulletin on their life.
A big "F" Friend: says, "What's new with you?"

A little "f" friend: thinks the problems you whine about are recent.
A big "F" Friend: says, "You've been whining about the same thing for 14 years. Get off your duff & do something about it."

A little "f" friend: has never seen you cry.
A big "F" Friend: has shoulders soggy from your tears.

A little "f" friend: knows almost nothing about your family.
A big "F" Friend: knows the medical history, dietary habits & marital troubles of everyone on your tree.

A little "f" friend: calls you at 10 p.m. just to chat.
A big "F" Friend: knows you hate to be called after 9 p.m.

A little "f" friend: wonders about your romantic history.
A big "F" Friend: could blackmail you with it.

A little "f" friend: when visiting, they act like a guest.
A big "F" Friend: when visiting, they open your refrigerator, put their feet on the sofa, talk back to your spouse & reprimand your children.

A little "f" friend: thinks the friendship is over when you argue.
A big "F" Friend: knows that a friendship's not a friendship until you've had a fight.
