How to Know Who Your Real Friends Are

E-mail a bunch of your friends and graciously ask them for their help moving you to a new residence. The ones who agree are the special ones.

What happens if they agree but dont show up?

i'd say that's probably worse. Because they WANT to be thought of as a close friend, but it's mostly a self-serving relationship at best.

There's a fine line between determining who one's best friends are and imposing on one's best friends.

that's true. but, i'm not talking about getting your friends to sell Avon. I'm talking about 2 hours of manual labor to make one's day a LOT easier.

Remember that time I moved from Peoria to Marion and Nick S. was the only person who showed up to help? Oh wait, you probably don't remember. Because you weren't there!
