Why is it that people ask to borrow money and continue to spend?

It makes no sense to me...

Have the nerve as you are xmas shopping to call me and ask me to borrow money...

Hello!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No you can't. Are you done yet? You will give me the money when you get your unemployment? Does this make sense. I am trying to maintain my bills yet you want me to lend you money. Can't do it.

Sorry just venting, I don't get it....

  • The Government does this so maybe some think it should be OK for them to follow suit.

  • I dont like borrowing money but people dont usually ask to borrow to save. They usually borrow it for an expense.

  • I honestly dont know one single person in my life who would ask me for money unless it was literally a life or death situation.... I guess I simply dont know anyone so irresponsible as to live that way. I always wonder about the people being asked. What is it about you that you choose friends like that OR if it is family why would they think you would give them money if they are that irresponsible.
