All I had to do was ask...

September 19th, 2016 at 10:40 am

So, my last post was about how I loaned $400 to a co-worker. She had said she would pay me the following week but didn't. Then, she said she would pay me on payday, which she didn't. All of these "promises to pay" were with the other co-worker she borrowed from... I never really spoke to her directly myself.

So, after 6 weeks of nonpayment, my DH got a little antsy and asked me to confront her. I figured to be less confrontational, I would send her a text saying that I needed the money back for xyz (which were all true) and that it would be appreciated if she could pay me soon. A couple of hours after I sent that text, she pays me back! So, apparently, I just had to ask to get my money back was all. Oh well. I'm just glad that's over with.

    I'm sorry it even had to get to that point. But it's great that as soon as you asked you had the money. Clearly paying back someone was not a priority for her.

    Yeesh. I'm glad you're out of that situation. I guess knowing she wanted it for such a non-emergency showed her cavalier attitude toward borrowing money, but it's a shame she needed a push to pay you back. Whenever I've borrowed money (even if it's my dad who I know doesn't need the money), it never leaves my mind until it's paid off.

    Glad you got it back. After all the anxiety and strain wondering if you'd ever see it again, was it worth doing? I hope you avoid lending to her again becus you shouldn't have to go thru that.

    It never ceases to amaze how people will sit on a loan until asked to repay it. I am glad its done, and now you know...

    Glad you have your money back. I was hoping you weren't going to say the person refused to pay.

    Glad you got it back! The one time I loaned a "friend" $87 and texted her 2 months later about it ... never heard from "friend" again.
