Neither a borrower nor a lender be

Today, my friend won’t pay me back the money I lent her. I stupidly lent her $1200. She’s calling me an “inconsiderate bitch” because I “have a good paying job, I’ll be alright.” FML

This is why you keep your job and financial status on the low from most people. Your friend used you. Arguably stole from you too. Never lend her money again and keep your business on the low. Hell I'll lie saying I'm barely able to keep a roof over my head. Act semi-destitute OP.

No lawyers usually at small claims court. Even if OP goes that route, she would still be in the same situation she is in now, which is getting the money back, just if she did, she would get back the initial amount plus court costs.

The difference though, is the “friend” would have a judgement for the $1200 appearing on the credit reports, which could screw the “friend” when the friend tries to get an apartment, vehicle, or any other type of credit.

If you can't afford to lose it, don't loan it. Even if someone swears they'll pay you back, you should still assume that it's a gift. That way, if they pay you back, that's fine, but if they don't, you can't be surprised.

That trick works with $20. At $1200 it starts getting expensive. If you really want to pay money to get rid of a friend, it might be cheaper to hire a hit man.

And no, I don't actually recommend that.

Take her to court, get a judgment and you will get your money eventually.
