4. Arguments for ● A true friend will always be nice enough to vanish and not witness your embarrassing behaviour when they know you are about to make a fool of yourself

5. Arguments for ● A close friend by your side will surely be more likely to stand in between you and a bully's fist than a passing acquaintance

6. Arguments against ● If you borrow money from an acquaintance you are umpteen times more likely to get away with it than from a close friend who will always be there to remind you what a bastard you are
