What are your thoughts on this? Do you ever lend people money or refuse because of the hassle it causes?
A friend of mine broke up with his missus a while ago, and was a bit tight financially so asked to borrow some from me. I agreed, knight in shining armour that I am, and told him not to worry about it - and to pay me back whenever he was back on his feet and could afford to. Even suggested him paying me a small amount per month etc.
Now, he's been sorted for a while now but seems to be ignoring the fact he owes me this money. Wouldn't be a problem but he keeps playing the skint card, yet I keep noticing new things that he's bought, and he's talking about booking holidays etc.
Should I have a little word? I don't particularly /need/ the money back ASAP, but it'd be nice to know that he's not forgotten and plans to pay me back at some point.
He's not quite a close enough mate for me to write the money off, btw.
So, yeah - do you owe your friends money? Do they owe you money? It's a right shitter, huh.
