Hi all when u come across a situation like a person places a bomb or slaps u for no cause or refuses to pay you back the money what u lend him etc etc...., what will u do in those circumstances??? Becoz when i lend a money to my friend, he just told me that he will pay and saying it for nearly 4 yrs. i just stayed cool and kept him pressurised till i gotback my money. so i felt that the patience is the key for my success and ghandigiri is the example for that. so i want to how many of u have those patience, since this was my first experiance usually i am very tensed person, but some how stayed cool and kept my head cool, hope this works without hurting anybody, so i am curious to know what u will do when u come across a situation like this??? it may be any cases?? let me know and share ur views

I know people often scoff at the idea of counting to ten before doing anything rash or when they know that what they are doing is something thet theyre going to regret for sure.... but i always find thet it is something that can save SOO much misunderstanding and confusion...

i guess we shud jus go back to following that age old prophecy of gettin up evryday with a choice.. u hav a choice to be either reeli pissed off... or u can spend the rest of the day being resolutely happy and cheerful...and in da process spreadin happiness to evryone we com across dat day... its da least dat we can do in dese times of unhappiness...

I'm very patient. Getting slapped in the face, that would get the normal spark of anger.. though I think actually my feelings would be hurt more, but I'm hopin' I wouldn't hit back, and don't hink I would, afterall Jesus said to "turn the other cheek" instead (my cheek but not someone else's). Money.. well our kids owe us hundreds and we could sure use it but... Of course that's different than a friend.. I probably wouldn't loan money to someone not a friend.. If they couldn't pay it back.. oh well. If they could, I might be a little bitter.. Now a bomb! That's inexcusable! No patience for that! Lock that person in jail and never, ever let them out! For the sake of the innocent. Motto: think before you actually make and use a bomb, and hurt other persons.

Im a very patient person, but in a situation like yours, would depent on the ammount envolved. One thing you can do, if you have access to his things, keep one that he realy loves until he gives you the money back, or say you will sell it to be refounded.

well this person whom you lend money.. How is he? as i have two kinda friends.. One who like to share money.. And others who dont.. If i gave money to someone.. They may return within the time limit and if they cant they get pressurised by themselves.. And some dont bother to return those money.. So i like not to do such business with them...

I have virtually no patience for anything or anyone. I realise it is not always good, but I can't help it. I can only try.

Please Pay Me Back?!! - Don't let money get inbetween a great relationship.
Well thats a funny one. I lent my friend some money as well and have been hinting around that I'd like to get paid back but I always hear no problem I can do the payment plan and then nothing happens. So I'm not really the type of person to be on someones back all the time especially a very close friend, but I'm at the point where I need it really bad and I guess they still don't have it. So Patience, I guess im impatient but at the same time trying my best to be very very patient. I just don't want money to come between our friendship but when money is lent to a person they should know it was a loan and has to be paid back asap.

I think I have quit a bit most of the time. The things that get me are things that should be simple, but wind up really complicated or time consuming. LOL!!!

I DONT THINK I WILL KEEP QUITE. IF SOME BODY ASSURE THAT THEY GIVE BIG MONEY AFTER THEY DO SOME THING LIKE YOU TELL, I MAY THINK AGAIN.
