Why am I not surprised?

January 11th, 2009 at 04:57 pm

Called my sister today to tell her I was on my way to pick up my money since she never called to say she had it and of course she doesn't. She said she'll have it on Monday, now my thing is this I told her I needed it back by Friday (like she promised ) and that it was my tuition money (which it is not I lied). You think she would call and say I know I owe you but I will give it to you on Monday? Nope...that is what annoys me with her, when she says she's going to pay you she never does and avoids you like the plague. It wouldn't be so bad if she just called. So I politely told her (in a firm voice) that if she causes me to be dropped due to non payment it won't be nice. We'll see if she calls me Monday

On a different note I got a X-mas from freecycle for next year and hit the gym today so no money was spent, but I have none to add to my challenge...darn
I even managed to get a couple of hours in to study

    It might sound harsh, but I don't think you should let your family members borrow money. It seems like it is a lot of hassle to get repaid. Just my opinion. I hope you get a call from your sister tomorrow. Good luck!

    Remember, a dog cannot get kicked if he doesn't stand still or lie down. NEVER loan money. If you can, give it without expectation of return.

    You guys are so right

    When I lend money (rarely), I get a check right then for the amount dated for the date I said I wanted it repaid. I let them know I will be depositing the check on that date. If the money is not there I start charging 5% interest, and if they do not pay back on time I never lend to them again.

    What about charging her a late repayment fee? For every day she doesn't have it, add a $1 on. It may not seem like much, but give it a few weeks and it will add up quick. Maybe it will help her to return money on time if she has a penalty fee.

    As I said in an earlier comment, my husband lent his brother about $1,500. and was told that he would be repaid the following month. Supposedly, he had a mortgage problem or fear in losing his condo. For months, my husband asked him for the money. The same broher is my husband's barber so he saw him more often to ask him. My husband said to me, "why did I lend him this money? What was I thinking about?". I told him if his brother couldn't come up with house payment how could he pay him back.

    When you go to his house, he has the big screen flat tv's, latest electronic gadgets, iphones, etc, and everything on credit.

    We save for everything. Probably is now a good time for you to stop the loans from your family. It's not easy I know - but it becomes a lifestyle for them.
