Weekend Writing Prompt #41 – Weather – A Fair Weather Friend.


Prose ChallengeIn 150 words or less, write a story in which the weather (either good or bad) plays a major part.

She was described as a fair weather friend best illustrated by her reaction when rumours started to circulate that I had been found conducting some dodgy financial affairs.

No one likes being accused of anything that makes you potentially appear to be in the wrong.

She heard the rumours and quickly jumped to all the wrong conclusions.

Yes there were some decisions made that left my clients wondering about my ability, as a financial planner but not every financial choice will always be a winner. Will it?

The fact my client who suffered the loss was also a friend to both of us didn’t help.

The client liked to talk and talk he did. My name was mud within hours of social media exposure.

My fair weather friend vanished as if in a cloud of smoke. She wasn’t having her name sullied along side mine.

    Who needs them? When my divorce was finalised, I had a “good friend” close her front door in my face.

    Easy come, easy go.

  3. Had several fair weather friends at school and in my adult life. We don’t need them, yet they seem to need us…….. for a while. I’m wise to that now.

  4. It’s better to get rid of fair-weather friends.
