a-1566156976 Nov 06, 2018 07:43 PM Man Borrows Car And Tries To Keep It My Mom used to say "People will cross the street to avoid you if they owe you a dollar." I loaned a good friend $1,000 cash. If you can't trust your friends, people you've known for years and years, who can you trust? He stood right there in the bank parking lot and told me he'd pay me back with interest within a month. Then he found some excuse to rationalize why he didn't owe me the money. That was over a decade ago. Never loan money to anyone. Give them money, if you feel you must, but never loan it.
