All of the new batteries I have ever gotten are charged more than enough to start a vehicle. It's possible that you either got a bad one, there is an electrical draw draining the battery. Yes, all batteries require charging if they sit; however, I never heard of what your friend told you.
Can you tell me exactly what happens when you turn the key to the start position? Is there any noise?
