    Time to throw out the subtle approach. Next time you see him (or her), grab them by the collar and slam them up against the wall, and demand they tell you where your money is. Use words like bitch, cunt, and gun.....and don't sleep a whole day before so you look crazy.

    You'll get your money back lickety split.....

    As a rule, i never, ever lend someone more than $20.

    I got ripped off once and that was enough.

    It's just bad policy to lend money to people. When cash is owed, it does funny things to people and ruins friendships.
     
  5. i agree entirely lens... i vowed never again to loan money to anyone. im burnt right now though so when mister nice guy returns it may change...

    Here's the simple thing to say right off the bat:

    Sorry but I dont lend money to friends.

    before you make the mistake of giving the money to a friend then say to them:

    Look, is $xx.x worth more than our friendship?

    if you lend them the money and they say they cant return it:

    Okay then, I'll just grab that [item of value] that I've always like from your house

    Treat it like a pawn shop. They'll say 'you cant have my turntables,
    and you say 'you get them back as soon as you pay me my money;.

    I think this is the best approach at this point in time. Banks take collateral...so should you. If they plan on paying you back...then they shouldn't have a problem with it. They'll get whatever item you took back upon payment of their debt. plain and simple.

    ^He speakith the truth.

    Fuck letting money come between friends. It's
    one thing to let it come between an acquaintance
    or someone who's not one of your best friends..
    but letting any amount of cash come between
    you and a good friend... that's some messed
    up shit.

    yeah, tell me about it.

    I gave my homie $175 bucks back in July.
    He 'guaranteed' a product I had purchased
    through him. I had explained to him that
    by giving me a guarantee, he must give
    me back the money if the product was no good.
    Product wasnt good.

    So, Ive been calling him and getting no answer.
    Just a voice mail.
    I managed to talk to him once a few weeks
    ago, and he said he was trying to squeeze it out
    of the guy, but he cant. That was a month ago.
    Havent heard from him since.

    Same guy: I had brought a gallon of Skyy Vodka
    and a bottle of Kaluha to his crib for a BBQ he was
    having over the summer. I brought the stuff
    in a brand new VANS backpack. There was so much
    other liqour and beer there, that we barely put a
    dent in the vodka. I told him to put up the vodka
    and save it for the next shindig. I was kinda buzzed,
    so I forgot my back pack. I call him up about 2 weeks
    later, and he tells me he drank my vodka, puked
    in my backpack, and cant get my money back.
    So, Im assed out a gallon of vodka, 1 backpack,
    $175, and a homie.

    I agree with the collateral part... Except you need to throw a little more spice into it.. Back hand him and say "im taking these turntables and there is nothing you can do till i get my money you monkey".

    here's one I did once.

    My buddy was in hock so he took his tables to a pawn shop.
    I told him I'd pay to get them out of hock and hold the pawn ticket.
    That way he wouldnt have to pay the interest and he'd know that
    the shop couldnt loose them (or sell them behind his back).

    it didnt happen because he got some temp work and made the money very quickly.
    but the deal would be good because someone else is doing the brokering, I just hold the goods and the ticket after they set the price.

    and damn webs.... that's some punk shit right there. who pukes in a backpack?

    thats what Im sayin.
    His story is, that he was using it for a LUNCHBAG!!
    and leaves food in it for a week. He opens it, and
    the smell is so rank, he puked in it. So, he promised
    me a new backpack, because I had just bought it
    before I took it over there. You know, Im generally
    cool about shit, but thats a substantial amount of dough.
    I could really use that money. I could care less about the
    vodka. The backpack I could use too. Im using plastic bags
    to carry shit around. Fuck that.

    If theyre really youre homies, theyll pay you back.
    I always pay people back. I sold my NOVA to pay someone
    back...so what the fuck.
