Had no problem deleting their names

Spent some quality time yesterday deleting those phone numbers of 'friends'...you know, the kind that never return an email, or even a phone call? But when they finally do call once every six months, it's only because they usually are in need of a favor. For some reason, my friendships seem to always be a one way street. I finally decided it was time to move on. I can take a hint.
