I mean, like more than $10. When I lost my job, a few friends offered to lend me money and reassured, "Seriously, dude, no weirdness." I appreciatively declined. Honestly, I would feel weird about borrowing money from a pal. It's a pride thing, and honestly, the amount of time it would take me to pay them back would be down right embarrassing. I'd rather eat every meal off the dollar menu at McDonald's for months before I even went there. (Wait a minute, that kind of sounds delicious. I can't even remember the last time I made a trip to the Golden Arches!) Great, now I'm daydreaming about Oreo McFlurries and crispy chicken wraps. I digress.
Oh and remember this post from the other week when I had a full-on-FML-meltdown? Apparently it caused quite a bit of concern for my friends (sorry, didn't mean to freak anyone out!), and once again I was offered money and "anything else I needed." Anything? Really? I wouldn't even know where to start! The only person I feel comfortable borrowing money from is my boyfriend. And even then, I have to ask him in an email because I'm too embarrassed to actually say the words. Sigh. One day...Imma make it RAIN! Rick Ross style ;)
What about you: Have you ever borrowed money from a friend? Or vice-versa? Was it awkward?
