Frenemy

This is your friend-plus-enemy in one. They're these females who pose as friends, but in reality, have ill intentions. These supposed "friends" like to know about you and what's going on in your life so that they can use it against you, copy you and take the credit, or celebrate your faults and mishaps. These girls are everywhere - at work, in your circle of friends, at the gym, or at your family's BBQ. The most dangerous of these are your work buddies. You know that girl . . she not only wants your job, she also wants your Life! The work frenemy brings you news about others, comes to complain about her boss and solicits your comments to use against you. These "brown nosers" pretend to want to be better at their job. Beware of the new so-very-friendly girl who just wants to bond with you and does not have a boyfriend. If the boss is a man and he his very vulnerable she is the new "bait & switch" and can be threatening. The reason frenemies are hard to spot is because they are manipulative and have been practicing their craft. You know you have the makings of friend-plus-enemy when you get that feeling of mistrust. Trust those feelings and pay close attention to her conversations, attitudes and they way she is dressed. If you are positive that a frenemy has made it into your circle of friends you have to phase her out. Kicking her to the curb might makes matter worse, and you do not want to piss her off if you confided some things to her or she is sleeping with the boss. Your hand is now in the lion's mouth and you have to pull it out slowly. . . continue to be friendly but do not give her any ammo! Gossip, conversations of personal struggles, financial woes and pending decisions must Stop. Keep your Friends close and your 'Frenemy' closer.
