Default Don't you just love

When someone owes you a couple grand and you see them posting all over the Internet about everything new they have? Then after 6 years you try to get them to understand that you lent them the money as a good faith gesture and it's about time they pay you back, the response is "if you're so hard up for money, why don't you stop spending money on your Jeep?".

Yup one of the reasons I don't post on cfot anymore, I can't stand the sight of one of their posting whores, after giving them the shirt off my back.

If it's true, I can't see why you would be banned.
There is a person that owes me a large sum of money that I will probably never see, and has made no effort to repay. I came home one day and there is a small appliance in the kitchen that wasn't there before.
I asked my wife where it came from.
"oh, ***** sold it to me for only $20"
I was about ready to put a full magazine of 45 into it.
Person owes me Joecooool money and has the nerve to take more?

I know nothing about the deals mentioned in this thread...
There was someone that received a lot of help from a forum that seemed to have really nice stuff to be in as bad shape as they claimed.

After that, I am a lot more selective about who I will help online and how.

Sorry you're having a head ache with repayment.

One of the reasons I seldom lend money unless I'm basically prepared to let it go.

Most folks don't have a very good relationship with money to begin with and thusly won't have any with yours.

I've been burned on lending money, too, from secretaries who were being abused by their husband to her driving an old car that was a money pit to an alcoholic first cousin. In every case I realized that I wasn't likely to get my money back, and it was true in almost every one of them. Since I'm a lawyer, I likely could've gotten my money back through a lawsuit, but I just let it go as charity.

6 inch lift, 37x12.5 Nitto Mud Grapplers, RCVs in front, Chromalloy USAs in rear, Eaton elocker front, pulled the elixir out of the back after destroying 2 and went with a Detroit in rear. Prototype HIDs in front (flame suit on, lol). It's been wheeled hard.

Yes, I put a lot of money in that thing in the last 6 years, but it was MY money and I don't owe anyone a thing.

I wish you'd reveal this person. He/she needs to be called out.
