Beware of friends Even the long ones: Andy Ypya is one of these types of people

by | Apr 8, 2015 | General, Pool Stories | 9 comments

So unfortunately this has been weighing on my mind lately so I felt the need to get it off my chest.  Even though Andy Ypya did this to me around 8 or so years ago it is still something that crosses my mind from time to time.  Andy is one of the worst types of people I know, the one that takes advantage of others.  The main point of the story is even if someone is a friend, mixing business and pleasure is not something you should do.

Andy Ypya

So I had just purchased another cue and we were all on the same pool team.  So I had an extra cue with an extra shaft that was custom made for this cue.  In total I invested around 400 in this cue.  Andy Ypya was interested in buying it so I made him an offer of $300 for the McDermott Cue that was in excellent condition and about 6 years old.  So he says he wants to get it and proceeds to give me $100 towards the cue. But collecting the other $200 was pretty much impossible.   I have known Andy Ypya for a few years at this point and considered him a friend.  I always came to his karaoke nights and even helped him build his song collection.  Use to hang out at his house and also payed him to do work on my car.  He even called me a few times for me to help him out with moving and a few other things to which I was more than willing to help.  Then one day he just stops returning my phone calls and avoiding me.

After many times of trying to communicate with him and even trying to talk to his wife Chelsea Ypya to get a hold of him.  He has since moved to Salem, NH and he has never returned any of my communication attempts.  I would rather give him his $100 back and take the cue back from him than further chase him for the money he owes me.  This isn't even the first time a “friend” of mine has taken either something of value or money from me and stopped communicating.  Why is it people just take advantage of people when they decide to be generous.  It makes me sick that the few bad apples makes it so we learn we can't trust people.

It turns out that Andy Ypya even owes money to another couple because they were living together and he decided not to pay his part of the rent.  How can you live with a friend and then take advantage of them by not paying your share of the rent. Talk about not stepping up and being a man.  You have to continually screw people over to get by in life.  I wonder how many jobs Andy Ypya has had because his true nature has come out while working there.

I still believe in humanity.  I believe we are good and deserve the benefit of the doubt.  In today's world we need to believe that people are out to help each other and not take advantage of each other.  I will continue to help friends who need it or want it as long as they are willing to help themselves.  But to take advantage of someone with their hand out is just the lowest of the low.  I just hope that some people are able to change their stripes and become decent human beings.


  1. Know Your Facts

    Andy doesn’t owe money to that other couple….get your facts straight. John refused to get a job and sat playing his xbox all day. and wasn’t paying his part of the bills. so Andy stopped paying his. Just because things went sour with you and him , doesn’t mean you know anything. The fact that you just sit there speculating leads me to believe you sir , are a fucking idiot.

      Well I was told recently that money was still owed for the time they lived together. But I believe that Andy probably does due to his nature to take advantage of people. Even if there is no money owed it still doesn’t change the fact that he took advantage of me and still owes me money. So who is the idiot? probably me for trusting a friend and giving him the product before it was fully paid for. But you missed the point of the story, Andy Ypya takes advantage of people and screws people over.

      Andy became a waste of space & time when he decided to screw me over so I’ll just say this once. I paid rent for both parties just to keep my name in good standing so I could rent at a future apartment. The landlady was nice enough to allow for a 3 month payment plan so I could also afford rent at the new place. If the comment above was the story Andy had to tell his brother to back him up, that just adds more fuel to the fire. For the record, I don’t own an xbox and have always paid my rent.

  2. annoyed.

    You literally made a blog about trashing someone. You are the lowest of low. If its been that long get over it and move on. So what, he was in a tough time and couldn’t pay.I’m sure you wouldn’t understand falling on tough times especially with a family because you are obviously perfect.( note sarcasm) Your incessant annoyance probably drove him to ignore you. Personally I would treat you the exact same for being a whiny little girl about the whole thing then putting details like someone’s full name and living area. What kind of a monster are YOU? You deserve nothing if this is how you handle things. But by all means let him take food out of his 4 month olds mouth or his other 2 children to satisfy a little boy with a vendetta over a very old issue. Good luck.

      Just telling a story of how sometimes good friends go bad or someone who was suppose to be a friend. Yea I am such a monster for sharing a story of how a friend took advantage of a friendship. Tough time all those years ago drinking beer working multiple jobs yet still not willing to pay the small amount of money I was asking for. It is tough for everyone all around so talking about how tough it is for him is not a unique story. If you want to buy something then buy it and pay for it and don’t promise a friend then take advantage of their good nature. Not like you could walk into a car shop and get a part fronted to you with the promise of paying for it, or do you know of a shop that does? Please tell me again how I am a bad person for trusting someone. So Tiffany Faulhefer please learn more about when it happened as at the time they were not living together. You talk about taking food out of their mouths yet its ok for them to do this to me?

      Reguardless of “tough times” you pay your debt and if he couldn’t he shouldn’t have taken the product. The fact that you would ignore someone that you owe money to just makes you just a big of a piece of shit as him. It’s not Greg ‘ s fault he can’t feed his child,if he couldn’t why the fuck did he continue to have more? he should man up n find a way to do so if it’s such an issue. What about greg? He doesn’t have mouths to feed? Grow the fuck up

    Hummm ok I will state this and that’s it I know nothing about the person in question or the situation, but I do know a lot about owing people money and being owed money. I also know BilliardGreg very well. I am sure that he would have taken the repayment in installments just as long as it got payed.

    I would Highly Suggest this Andy person Retract his Nut Sack and just return the Cue stick.. Jut think he’ll have 100$ to put “food in his kids mouth”.

    I’d just like to say that my dad is one of the nicest people I know and I don’t appreciate how you make him out to be some villain.

    • Billiard Greg

      Hailie, Your dad and I use to be friends, he was on my pool team and he wanted a nice pool cue so I decided to sell him one of mine thinking he would pay me the full amount. It was his decision to not give me the money for the cue. He probably is the nicest person in the world but he stole from me. I am glad he is the nicest person to you and others now and I wish him the best but this is an article of how he has treated me in life. I should actually thank him a little, I have learned to not sell anything of value on credit or a payment plan. It was only a couple $100 so it was a minimal amount to learn about someones character and lose a friend.
