Have you ever been with someone that you were in a relationship that was a freeloader? Or maybe it was a family member? Definition of Freeloader (wiki): The term "Freeloader" in everyday speech refers to the economic free rider problem, the act of refusing to do work without valid excuses/reasons for being noncontributing to the work being finished. More generally, the term refers to a "mooch" or a schnorrer. Can we also say that we have some folks in the community who are freeloaders also?
