      That's stopped them from asking.
      *loaned a friend several hundred back in the 90s.
      Took them 10x as long to pay back as agreed (0 interest), and even then acted like I screwed them somehow.
      Yea, lending money to anyone is a terrible idea unless you're prepared to take a loss or start breaking kneecaps. My experience is that suddenly they pretend you're the bad guy when you start asking for repayment.

      Yeah but that one isn't a total dive like most BWs.

      I never lend what I can't lose. It's why I didn't agree to lend the full amount.

      Covering an extra shift right now, then back to work Sunday, off Tuesday. Not looking forward to anything right now because 2 kids are barfing everywhere at my daughter's school. Some stomach bug going around, handed off from those kids older siblings, guarantee my girl gets it and passes it to all of us... so the vomit train is on the way.

      That too

      But I found there are so many health benefits to eating 2 bananas a day. Like reducing heart burn and settles the stomach.

      I think my PCV is leaking. Looks easy enough to replace. Debating if I should get a catch can while I'm in there.

      A few years he actually bragged in front of several that could always borrow more money from me (if needed) because of how good he paid me back.

      Mrs McMike has been bank for a aunt of hers for years. Not a bank and loan, just somewhere to make withdraws from.

      The desperate aunt never seems to have money around when the hot water heater breaks, or when she needs an alternator/tires. I can't even tell you how many times their water/electric has been cut off, yet they eat out every night.

      Yeah, it's that kind of desperate.

      It's always a loan with "I'll pay you back" added at the end. I don't even want to know how much money has gone out the door to her. I think it's gotten to the point where she is being treated like an Saturday night ATM. They're not worried about failing because good ol' Mrs McMike will often send them the money without the guilt trip.

      Good thing our finances are separate, otherwise there would either be
      A) Huge guilt trip from me, as well as a payment plan.
      2) Cut off the aunt
      3) Huge fights between me and Mrs McMike
      4) Distance between Mrs McMike and her aunt.

      I'm always telling her, "Three weeks of sitting in the dark and cold showers might teach them a lesson"

      When I say "them" I mean her and her boyfriend that I'm 99% sure doesn't contribute anything towards the mortgage/utilities. The same one that story is about.

      He's a nice guy, but damn dude. Step it up.
