Should you loan money to friends?
Monday, January 30, 2012
I am interested to hear others take on this.... If you want to comment or even just vent.. feel free no judgement or condemnation here!!! I have bumped my head several times but I think I hit the last straw a few weeks ago.
Long story short.. a friend since I was 7, played one of her games on me.. again... went to a retreat with me .. said she was $50 short and then we get to the atm and the whole "i made a deposit and I can't get anything came out". Hmm since I am close with the oranizers I had already arranged to have her pay the weekend of the retreat.. then told them i needed to lend her $50 ... and ended up putting up all of it except for $60... bottom line is that was 2 weeks ago.. If I had it , I wouldnt even sweat it but I just went back to work and I didnt plan that extra in my budget..plus this wasnt the 1st time but I thought different since she was forthcoming needing a little bit..... I just have to forgive (the lie part ) and keep it moving... DO you lend money? Why or why not?
