No, not really. Im guessing you never set a timetable for paying you back. Your fault.

This reminds me of a policy I have "Never lend people money, and expect them to pay you back."

I don't think a timetable matters if the person never plans on paying you back.

My mistake was not going through a bank to make the loan formal. I didn't realize when you lend someone a large some of money, no matter who it is, you go through a bank. That way they're legally obligated to pay you back.

Family members? No...well My Half-Brother hates me immensely, not exaclty sure why(but I don't think that counts as betrayal)

I had a g/f(It was partialy my fault because I made a bad decsion by dating her) who cheated on me. Yet, I never took it to heart because it was only a week relationship.

As for friends, none of them betrayd me.........yet.

Oh, I've definitely been betrayed by friends before.....one of the more memorable instances occurred my freshman year of college. I thought this one girl was my best friend, but when I broke up with my bf at the time it turned out she'd just been using me to go to parties and sleep with my ex's friend who lived in his apartment. She basically just stopped talking to me, and when I finally got her to say something, her excuse was that "I tried to act black" so she stopped being friends with me. I like to dance and my boyfriend is black, sorry you racist betch :cmad:

I went through a "growing apart" with some friends. I wanted some stuff back, they said I could have. I said no such thing. So while they were out. I busted in their pad, got my **** back. They came over (thinking that I stole it - rightfully so) and they saw the tv I just yanked. Then I told them that I bought a new one because they never returned my old one. I'm a stinker.

You know what you do? You call her. Seriously, she's family. Lest we also forget, it takes quite a bit of time to be able to cough up 4,000 bucks. 9 months is semi-reasonable. Betrayal would be if she called and said: "You ain't never getting this back."

My sister literally tried to kill me several times before. But I don't consider it a betrayal. For it to be a betrayal, I would have to expect her not to kill me.

Yeah I'm a dumbass. I had compassion for my sister when she told me she was close to being evicted and losing all her stuff. Yeah, I should be ashamed of myself. :whatever:

Sloth7d
10-30-2006, 04:16 AM
Don't feel bad though, fury. I've given my sister money plenty of times. And times I've been paid back......the dots should give hint of that answer.
Worst thing is everytime she ask me for money she uses the"its not for me, its for your neice" excuse. And I fall for it everytime.

blind_fury
10-30-2006, 04:24 AM
I would feel better if she had a daughter. I don't mind helping children.

Anyways I look at it this way. It's better she backstab me sooner than later. That way I don't waste anymore time and money on a treacherous snake.

Sloth7d
10-30-2006, 05:12 AM
Most of the time, I'm not sure the money is intended for my neice though.

So are you gonna go get your $4000 back or be a pussy about it or whine on the internet about your loss. Hurry up and get your money back man!:cmad:




































By the way, can I borrow $4000?:yay:

SuperFerret
10-30-2006, 08:38 AM
If she was close to being evicted then she's obviously strapped for cash, and most likely isn't able to get an extra $4,000 saved up (for you) in less than 9 months. Depending on how much money she makes and the expenses she has (rent, bills, food, etc.), that could take a while. It's not like she's gallavanting about town in a limo on your buck (is she?).

My advice: Don't loan people money, as you're obviously short-sighted, only seeing the money, and not the financial situation of the person you're lending the money to.

10-30-2006, 11:15 AM
Betrayed? Um, yeah, I think so.

My uncle faked his death. We believed he'd drowned while fishing and we never found the body, presumably (at the time) due to the fast current and ocean outlet. He was adored by the community and his memorial was standing-room only. Eleven years later he wrote to my mom (his sister) to tell her he was alive - and that being dead was hard and he wanted a social security number so he could get a fishing license and rent movies. It may have been a half-assed attempt for reconciliation, but he should have known better and stayed dead. My family had to tell his second son the news; I don't think I'll ever forget that moment. My aunt was forced to remarry her second husband since that marriage was invalidated by my uncle's reappearance, even though her first husband had a death certificate. The only person who knew what he'd done, his little mistress, went to his memorial and told his widow she'd be fine and would carry on. The statute of limitations for fraud expired several years before he reappeared and he's dirt-poor, so the coast guard (who testified he could not have survived the water's temperature and current without a lifevest) had no course of action. He got away with it.

Does that count?

When someone betrays me they are erased from my life. There is no reconciling, if they did it once theyll do it again. I'm usually pretty good at reading people though so I don;t hang out with a lot of betrayable people in the first place.

^If it weren't so ****ing depressing, maybe. There's a lot more to it (like my grandfather with severe alzheimers being abused by his other son, who also happened to supply his brother with cocaine before he disappeared and then failed to tell anyone that the uncle who "died" was doing drugs), but that's the gist of it.

If she doesn't have the money then fine. But she could at least call me and tell me.

It's not really the money I care about. It's the betrayal and disregard for my well-being.

Never lend out money...if they ask, just say "I don't have it" I've had a few friends in the past that have stabbed me in the back. It's like they just didn't wanna be bothered with me anymore had one friend in HS who told my other friend I stole some valuable comics off of him which of course never happened and proved false. My brother has owed me a few hundred bucks before but I get on him about it otherwise he'll say "I forgot about it" cause believe it or not, he actually forgets he borrowed money from someone.

I really shouldn't have to call her to remind her. The fact that she hasn't called me in 9 months after I gave her that large sum of money shows an absence of thoughtfulness and gratitutde. Actually I don't think I could listen to her treacherous voice without throwing up.

I had a friend that considered me one of her best friends and likewise.
I leave for the summer and I get slim to no communication from her. I come back and I am treated as a nobody. I come to the conclusion that we never had any substance in our friendship and that "best friends" was only a label. We only hung out twice in two years and we just about only communicate via AIM, Myspace, etc. Take away a computer and there is no friendship at all. We don't talk anymore. She remains completely oblivious to this. :down
