I know how you feel! I have a similar situation. Lent a friend a decent sum of money...few years on still waiting to get paid back. It sucks cos you think your helping someone out and they just take the piss!!
aaawh hell naw! bitch! time to throwdown! someone hold my gold toof! hold my earrings girl while i smack this bitch! lmao
well yeah fyl she totally overreacted and it seems she's lying -- Italy is pretty much rubbing your face in that fact. but perhaps she's like behind on rent or something maybe 'cause of her trip?
Well yeah ImaginaryFoe but the point is you don't go on expensive trips when you owe money, first you pay your debts, then you go on a trip with what you have left, or you stay home and make sure you don't get in the situation where you'll need to borrow money again so you can go on your next holiday with no worries. I hate people that have money problems like debts and stuff and then they decide they should go on holiday in another country. If you really want a holiday and you know you don't have the money just postpone or go somewhere cheaper and neared to your home.
I agree with the principle of what you're saying, good_times, but it is possible that the friend started paying for the trip a year ago or something and became shorter with her money over time but couldn't get her money back. I'm not defending her actions or justifying the stupidity of a splurge while bumming off of others but there could be extenuating circumstances. Still, it is just £20 and if you owe it to someone, skip a couple of meals if that's what it takes to pay it back. Downgrade your hotel room for one night. It's not worth your dignity.
