What would you do in this situation...
You loaned some money to a family member who you trusted whole heartedly. Like I mean, you had no question at all that they'd pay you back. So you
loaned them a sizable amount of money. With no worries at all.
So time goes by and when it comes time to pay, the family member starts making excuses. And the excuses sort of get worse and worse. And you're a bit
shocked by this. And you wish they'd just instead of making excuses be honest with you. Like say something like "look I know I promised to pay you
back but just not doing as well yet. But I promise to pay you back by X date, or pay you X per month, and I will do what I can to pay you what I owe
So instead of that they're making up near lies to you about why they can't pay you, etc etc. Then later, to make matters worse in a round about way
they flat out tell you that they have no plans to pay you back at all!
So you're perplexed. You feel betrayed. But you decide to just write off the loan. And just think of it as a learning experience.
So then the same family member who you still care about, ends up getting into some hot water again. And they now come to you again for another loan.
This time claiming that they might not be able to make ends meet. They might not be able to pay they're rent, buy food, etc etc. But they have a
reasonable paying job. This time they claim they will make it all official and they will pay you back ...etc etc.
So would you give them another loan? This is close family member. Like probably not ahh? ..... Like it just boggles my mind how crazy people can be
with their money and or their responsibilities. Like doing get me wrong, I'm not perfect either but I'd rather die than ask a family member for a
loan. And if I did I'd certainly pay them back, or make payment arrangements, not blow them off like some stranger off the street. Like it's nuts
how quickly friends and or family can turncoat when it comes to money. It's just sad.
So loaning them money a second time would be stupid right???
