Gimme My Money!

What do you do if someone owes you money?


I loaned someone money and they said they would pay me back as soon as they got their check. Well, they never did. That was over a year ago.

At the time, we had plenty of money and I let the debt go. I figured they didn’t have it, needed more time, or simply forgot. I also figured, they would remember and catch me when it was a better time. Should it stay forgotten?

This person is forgetful, scatter-brained and usually busy in their own small world. Consumed with personal thoughts and easily distracted. Do I ask for the money, offer a reminder, or let it go?

This person just received a sum of money and I’m currently in need. (Feel free to donate to my trip fund for my upcoming mission trip if you have any extra income. LOL) Is it petty to ask for the money now?

How would you handle, or how have you handled, situations like this in the past? Would love to hear your comments for my readers! Even my daughter said she would be interested in the answers because she has been offering commissions and people sometimes forget to pay!

I hate talking about money!!! LOL
