Also Known As (AKA) Moocher Syndromemore...
The epitome of the syndrome is Gollum of the “Lord of the Rings.” He started out as a fairly normal being and was transformed into a hideous monster by his obsession or greed for the ring that could not be quenched. Gollum said things like “We must have the Preciouss !!!” Remember the saying she became so green with jealousy that she became a “green-eyed monster.”
There are many phrases that relate to people with this syndrome that can range from 1 to 25 on a scale of 1 to 10.
One of the original moochers was Wimpy in the cartoon, Pop Eye, who frequently said “I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today.”
They usually take advantage of others generosity, kindness, and call you their “friend” when all they want to do is USE you and ABUSE you, and NEVER LET YOU GO !!!
Someone who survives off another’s income. Someone who believes that they are owed something for nothing. One who even if they have their own money, food, clothes, etc. will still use someone else's first. Even if that someone else is more poor.
They may appear to be a pauper who lives by begging. If they have possessions, then complain that they are very tight on cash, and need to be paid for anything that they do for the dupe. A scrounger who takes advantage of the generosity of others.
