  • Just me but if I only had $175 to my name, I wouldn't be lending any money out - that way I dont have to ask someone else to borrow money because I'm broke now!

  • i think she will understand. i mean, she's goin through tough everyone. over extending yourself isnt going to help.

  • I agree with MMKherMommy. If they already OWE you money, and YOU need things....I think your needs for your sons day care gets top priority........not go get yourself something nice.

    Im sure they will make it OK. OR if this is for some bill...ask them to give you the bill and address and you will mail it for them......if they say no....or can't have you get a money order or check in that name......then maybe the money was not for what they say?

    I would let them know you found that you dont have the money in the account to loan them, that you had alloted for things for yourself but did not realise you didnt have more to loan them..............what's the money for? I guess that matters...........and as one poster said.........ya did say you would loan them.....but DO tell them you are over extending yourself.

  • You should have checked your bank balance b4 you told them yes. Live and learn, and loan her the money.

  • You can't tell me you have NO clothes, What do you wear to the grocery store or to take your son out? If you wear pj's there then you can wear pj's to school.

  • It is your sister BUT you have to think of your self first. What if you gave them the money and then something happen. You wouldn't have any money to help your self right. Normally I would say yes help her on a time table But this time No because it sounds like you also have a child cuz you said something about day care No you have to keep the money just in case..
