    Welcome to the forum.

    Please see the corrections I have made to the parts of your post which you wrote yourself.

    As far as your friend's sentence is concerned, in my opinion it should be "It's sad how people forget all about you until they want something from you".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
