Lending money

This issue of lending money usually causes breakup of friendship. So many had abused my generosity that I am now firm in my policy of not lending money. Yesterday I got a text from a long lost friend. When he said how am I doing, my reply was how much. He got the message and he admitted that he needed money. My reply was HU U. That means Who Are You. The end of communication.

I understand why you are like that. Some friends will take advantage of that

@Alexandoy Lending would bother me too much. So I let those things go.

I don't lend money. I may help them out depending on what they are asking for.

I don`t lend either. If someone needs something I may as well give because they are not paying me back.

I think you are very wise not to lend money. People do seem to take advantage of generous people.

I don't lend money, I just give them money but a very much smaller amount than what they are borrowing, I tell them direct that " they may or may not give it back to me , no deadline, it's help but you need to get the rest of your lack somewhere else"

Yes, if you dont have it to loose, sometimes it may not be best to lend!!! Especially if u need it back!! When my friends tell me , I know u have it , and insist!! I have to be firm!! I dont have it!!

Haha!! That can be a viral meme!! Thank God, I am out of that stage of being asked for money! It is very difficult to ask your own money from them!

There is a saying “Neither a borrower nor a lender be; / For loan oft loses both itself and friend

Wise decision! My father always said, never a borrower or lender be.

I stoped lending money because people tend not appreciate what you do in order to help, they dont care if you stayed short in some important things to be able to help them.

LOL! That is very common in the Philippines. I have been asked many times just they could use it to pay for their debt to others, but I said no.
