Some say I'm their worst enemy,
Some say I'm their best friend.
Some use me in brevity,
You'll still pay for what I lend.

There's proof that I can even kill,
Too many take that path.
There's claim also that I can heal,
You'll have to do the math.

Yes, uses for me do abound,
You'll see me often, look around.

A couple years ago my teaser got rejected because it had an alcohol reference...
Oct 08, 2007

Not bad...

I would've solved this easily if it hadn't been for this hangover I have this morning !!!

Liked this one! Good writing!

I was thinking a hand. I think it fits pretty well.
Jan 28, 2009

I thought the answer was "time". Time heals all wounds. We are living on borrowed time. Time kills all things.
Jan 28, 2009

I thought it was money.
Jan 28, 2009

I had no idea. Good one!
Jan 28, 2009

Ohhhh I was thinking a bath tub...
Jan 28, 2009

time also fits this one as time is on oour side or time is working aginst us.
Jan 28, 2009

So, yeah, I thought it was a dog...good one!

I was thinking aspirin, but didn't make the rubbing connenction.
Jan 28, 2009

Actually I was thinking credit, that's how far I was off the mark. Really good teaser. Thanks for posting.
Jan 28, 2009

hmm...I was thinking money or taxes. seems like this teaser was a bit too vague.
Jan 28, 2009

nicely written... i knew i was right upon the first reading, didn't even need the hint, though the hint was clever also
Jan 28, 2009

yeah, it's really good. i also thoght the answer was aspirin or pills because of the ' you can find me everywhere' but the rubbing part was what i couldn't figure. Nice one, you had me thinking

Every time I thought of an answer, one or more of the clues didn't fit! I kept trying to get the "rub" connection, too; but I never did. Now that I know the answer, it seems simple.
