    Re: some friends they are

    Welcome to the forum, ckok.

    Some friends they are! is a scornful and sarcastic remark meaning 'I don't think they are 'friends' at all as they aren't very friendly'.

    REMINDER: NOT A TEACHER


    Mona: I am so glad that we are friends.

    Ckok: Me, too.

    Mona: That's right. BFF! Oh, by the way, could I borrow $100?

    Ckok: I'm sorry, but I can't lend you $100.

    Mona: Some friend you are! I'm unfriending you right now!
