The Good, The Bad and the Guy-Who-Owes-Me-Bigtime

A word of advice to myself (and all the others who can take the hint ;-). Its a really grave matter to lend money with the hope of expecting it back. Usually, these sort of lessons are learnt the hard way. Either that or I am so sadistic as to really wanna to hurt myself.

A very recent experience of lending an undisclosed sum of hard cash to a friend with an undisclosed name resulted in me trying very hard to track the guy down to retrieve my sum total. All of these efforts were met with excuses so convincingly absurd as to border on the incomprehensible (just like this jargon peppered post).

Suffice it to say that at the tender age of 25, I have resolved to agree with the good old saying:

"Your friends require your time not your money"
