It depends on the context. It is often used to tell someone all the unpleasant or boring details about something. But is also used when you ask for extra money or time from someone. ex: Can you spare me a minute? "Can you spare a dollar or two?" It is also used as a way of asking for mercy if you're being attacked. "Please, spare me."
