  • yes but it was only 6 bucks. I really didn't care that it was paid back but when you say "I will pay you back" even if I never asked for it to be paid back, I expect it to be paid back now.

    I don't ever give money anymore with the intentions of getting it back. I have basically realized only honest peope will pay you back and thats just that. The 6 buck s I lent out was so she could get food until her food stamps came in. Like I said I didn't care, but you can bet when she asked to borrow a bigger sum of money so she could pay rent I rejeted her even though I could have, I then knew her definition of 'borrow' and I can't afford to giveaway that much money.

  • nope but if I did I wouldn't expect to see it paid back. Rule of thumb: Don't loan out what you can't afford to see GIVEN out.

  • I "loaned" my little sister $200 last year and knew I would never see it again. Then I just loaned her and my other sister $100 each and am doubtful that I will get it back from either of them. But from now on the Bank of SleepingBea... is CLOSED!

  • My DH loaned a friend of his $250 (I said ok) and he never paid it back. It was only $250 and we had the money. I never expected him to really pay it back or else I wouldn't have loaned it to him. The worst part is that he took off and we never heard from him again. His friendship was more important than some stupid $250. I don't know whether to be mad that he didn't pay us back or to be mad that he took off.

  • I loaned an ex and his friend $380, and it's been about 10-11 years and no sign of repayment. lol I kind of knew at the time that I'd never see that money again, but oh well.

  • My children... every week....

    All together, they probably owe me thousands....

    I stopped counting, and stopped worry about it.

  • Yeah- but I don't think it was ever more than $20. We don't loan money out anymore though. If we have money to give, will give- if not then too bad.
