This particular friend made me loved bettas and fishing. Sometimes, he would help me collect bettas from breeders. The traveling time is an hour or so, so I paid him back his transport fees and to let him earn some extra bucks. But there's also a bad point about him. When it comes to betta competitions, he would always say " I will be getting 3-5 high quality ones " or " my uncle's friend is a betta competition judge, mostly in big competitions". Then I asked him "ok, so you call your uncle friend to choose for you?" "no, whatever I want, just say. Give them the money and it's mine". He's not some rich kid or anything. I really feel like replying " what's the point ?you didn't choose the betta yourself, didn't do the hardwork, always make use of connections to win." but I didn't say it, I just bear with it. I really don't want to lose this friend. What do you think I should do the next time he says the sentence or tries to show off?
