Today, I discovered that the five-star meal that my friend treated me to last night was actually meant to be repayment of the $200 I loaned her last month. I needed that money for bills and she refuses to give me another cent. FML

This reminds me of my stupid ex, who owed me 20 euros, gave me some flowers and said he didn't owe me anything afterwards. *insert insult here*

•Neither a borrower nor a lender be
•Never loan money to a friend, consider it a gift and move on if you wish to have a friendship afterwards
•Loans needs to be validated by a written, notarized contract
•Punch your friend in the face so that you at least feel better


Who said the friend had to know that OP was the thief. Silent justice, while you're at it, you should tack on another 200 and take her out when she's upset. Pay her meal with what's essentially her money.


That's called pawning, but works just as fine. People thumbing us down for suggesting illegal activities over just dropping the friendship, why not get paid, and then drop the friendship? Like I'm going to let a douchebag walk away with my money because of what the law deems moral? Fuck off

72: Because the cost of bail, court fees, fines, and restitution would easily exceed $200. Then there is that pesky problem of possible jail time and having a record. You can't just go steal someone's possessions because they're a shitty person whom you're owed money by. It would make you just as much of a shitty person as they are and you wouldn't even be getting any of your money back; you would be losing more of it.

This is exactly why they say to never mix friends with money, because then things like this happen. But it isn't OP's fault for not expecting their friend to be so unreliable.
