Am I Messed Up

So I have a I guess you can say friend ,
We used to always cruise & hang out , whatever he blew his motor up because he's always racing and being dumb on the streets. It's like everywhere he goes he races there .. ( 99-04 GT )
Anyways I had lend him my jack and stands to use for him to take off his wheels , weeks went by and he hasn't brought them back, I keep asking and asking .. He even left them in the yard and they got rained on. I had to go get them myself because he can't drop them off. The guy doesn't talk to me at all , and pretty much hits me up when he is going to work on his car. He's doing a engine swap with a basic box of tools .. Hand tools. And he wants me to help him , atleast buy me a 12 pack and lunch or something .. No his reply to that .. Well I'll have my mom cook something for you ( he's 25 ) I'm a tech. And I have a lot of tools , he wants me to bring all my tools and equipment to his house , like seriously ? You can't even return my jack and you want me to take 1000.00's of dollars worth of tools ?
To me it seems like he's a leach .. Only hits me up when he needs stuff .. Not even a simple convo. Besides that, any thoughts ?

And he keeps talking oh I can't wait to get my car , we can cruise again , but in reality I don't want to cruise because I have to keep up with him, and he's always bullying other cars on the road and acting a fool.

He even brings me into his drama , saying oh my boy so and so will race you in his Mach 1, when he knows I'm on probation and can't get introuble. I just feel sick of it ,

I have a friend(used to) that was my best friend in middle school. We hung out every weekend. Eventually like most kids in my school he got into weed. He has smoked himself retarded. The chill bro I used to know is now a crackhead like, cant sit still, tweaker. The summer before high school he stole $300 from me. Being my best friend, I was in denial that it was him. Now there's no doubt in my mind it was him. He sold his 160gb ipod for $5 of weed. During high school he would get arrested and sent to rehab. And thats pretty much where he was during high school. Every few months, he would get out just to be sent back in. In the those months of freedom he would ask me for rides and stuff. One time he asked for $40 saying he would give me $60 back. Well he did..he gave me his pay stub...not the paycheck the stub. Worthless. You have pretty much the same friend, a dumbass who wants nothing but rides, free stuff, and who cant stay out of trouble.(Im assuming your friends 25 and still lives with his mom? Just gonna leave that alone.) I blocked his number and don't talk to him anymore. For all I know he could be dead. Oh well.

No you're not a bad friend. He's a bad friend..maybe even a bad person.

Yup you are messed up for even thinking about helping him. You said he had your jack and stands and left them in the yard in the rain. Did they rust or have any other problems? What do you think will happen when he gets into your tool box? Your tools are your lively hood if you are an automotive tech the last thing you want to do is work hard to get the tools you need and have some bum mess them up. When he ask for your help again tell him you will be there and not show up when he ask why just tell him you had to help another friend that was willing to pay for your knowledge (even if you did not) do this a few time and he will either pay for your help or find another way of getting it done.

On a side note I had a friend borrow a brand new timing light and he returned it a week latter. I went to use it a few weeks later and the pick up was broke. The next time he asked to borrow my timing light I gave him one that I had shorted the pickup to the case so it would zap the person that was using it ever time it was supposed to flash. In a garage setting it is pretty funny to watch. This person returned it a week later and never said a thing about it zapping him or asked to borrow another tool.

Now that's funny...

I finally got to the point where I don't help anyone with anything. Last help I gave was doing a flush and tob on a t5. Bastard paid me for parts only...

I still help friends out for what I think they can afford. I just have them bring the car to me and I work in my garage they supply parts and normally Beer and away I go. The bigger jobs I do suggest a little bit of cash to help along the way. I belong to a Mustang club and if I need help these are the same ones that will come help me.

This guy is dead weight .. Cut him loose.. He's only gonna keep using you bc you allow him to. No one needs to be used like that! He's gonna bring you down. A true friend wouldn't do that to you! Make him use his tire money!

Similar situation, just no theft.
Just leave them.
Stop talking to them.
Don't answer calls or texts. Find a new group/friend

Don't be friends with that guy. I think we all have met this same guy in some form or another. Not sure why you'd care what this guy thinks and why you'd still want to associate with him in any form.

Had a guy who sounds similar just get let go at work for performance/personality issues. The Universe does tend to work itself out in my experience.
