One of my sisters always laughs at me when I bring up a certain person who owes me money. It's not a large sum they owe, but that is beside the point. I know my sister understands because she beats me to it when I try to explain that "it's not about the money; it's about the principle".
What do you do if and when someone owes you money?
My Mother would say it over and over to me....50 yrs ago, and I lived by that.
Unless one of my family....Then it is very different, depending on the amount.
But then again....I have never had much...lol....so good luck 'getting much from me'' :)
I have owed and due to some rough time found it hard to pay it back. It was very embarrassing. Even though the person did not ask I felt guilty for owing. Because of this I am more lenient but I rather to just give it or forgive the debt especially for small sums. I rarely loan money out anyway.
