    Lent my mother enough to pay for her holiday. Repayment is simple: she doesn't get any rent off me until the difference is worked out.

    I like your method there. I just don't have the balls to do it. I am too much of a forgiving person and chances are I will end up forgiving her and never get my money back.

    Hehe, I have plenty to blackmail her on but I am just not that kind of person.

    She is actually my ex but don't think she would go for that hehe, she is "above that."

    Yeah, just judging by where she's headed I am not sure she will ever get money. She hasn't had a job in about 9 months and has been fired from the last 3 jobs she had.

    Heh, yea I don't have that situation unfortunately :(

    Ugh, yeah I got the same problem right now and it's pissing me off the more I think about it. Dad's wife owes me $3500 from last year. Don't think I'll be getting that back anytime soon...I avoid talking to her and I'm in the same ****ing house. It's awkward just being here.

    I owe no one anything.

    First indication of the term "RUN"............

    But the dead is done and I think you my friend have just learned what NOT to do in life..........
    Some of us are better off than others and we do see and feel the need to pass on what has been blessed upon us, but there are times that you just need to learn the word "NO"

    I have done the same thing, and every penny I have been gracious with is somewhere in the game of life, working for someone else, and the worst part, is those that I did help, never got better......................shame on them and me for being a part of the sympathy game!!

    Simple, your too nice and your so called friends are taking advantage of that.

    Second give them a chance to explain, eg: Are they in such debt and are unable to play you back if so the truth is better than having them give you the run around, or are they not only in debt to you an also owe other people money aswell.

    But if more than one of your mates owes you money then it sound like one of them has said to the others- Go to Morketh, he'll hook you up.

    At the end of the day you don't owe them so it's not like you need to be all nice about your approach to them coz they owe you so if they can't or won't pay what they owe then either they're not your mates or they'll have to find another way of paying you back.

    Remember you don't owe them they owe you. No more Mr nice guy (but dont go all Mafia on them of course).

    Edit: $4000, really.

    Check out the place and if it is being repaired, give her the two weeks and wait for the closing.
    Loaning money to family and friends is like gambling. If you can not afford to lose it, then don't do it.

    Don't you like your friends, Morketh? ;)
    Just wondering.
    After all you appear to be demonstrating to them that you always have plenty funds, while they are a little cash-strapped occasionally. :)
