Friends Who Use You

I am sure that it has happened to you also. I guess they want to hurt me. They borrow things from me and do not return them. They also ask for money and then I don't see them again. Commets please

The fastest way to get rid of someone like that, Loan them some money. Not too much now as you will never see a dime of it back.

Also, for your real friends, I never loan more than $20, cuz I won't care if I get it back. And real friends are hard to come by and something to treasure.

heh... how funny. oldgeezer59 looks much like the dad of a former best friend who borrowed $400 from me then disappeared. i heard from her once after that... trying to borrow $10. realized she already owed me. Best friend for 7 yrs. then... nothing.

They say never loan anything if you want to see it again. Bcuz chances are, even if they DO return the items... they won't be in the same condition. And then if you're upset at the item being "ruined"... your "friends" think you're crazy. One friend also suggested to me: any $ you want to see again: get it in writing, with a pay-back plan, and notarized. That way there's some legal proof for both of you. Now if anybody asks... i just tell them "You're first on the list. as soon as all these ppl pay me back, you can borrow some of it".

unfortunately, for those of us who love and care for our friends, and are trustworthy... we tend to expect the same of others. Especially if they are our friends/family. Because that's what friends/family DO. they care for eachother and help out and if they borrow stuff they pay it back/return in as good if not better condition. Sadly the rest of the world doesn't work that way

Sorry this happened to you.
