Never loan money to friends or family. If you do, then view it as a gift and expect never to get repaid. Otherwise, it will more than likely ruin that relationship beyond repair.

Truer words were never spoken. I've had a couple of bad experiences and vowed to never lend money again. Not even small amounts.

Also never take a, "you owe me a favor" attitude afterwards. Your gift should be done with no expectations or strings attached.

Can't agree with not loaning or giving money to relatives. With ones you love, just give and don't expect anything back. period. If you expect something back then you don't really love them. I hate to see the world that would be if no one didn't loan good friends one relatives money during their needed times. When you care for people don't play a equal game, if you do your a low life in my books. Strangers are one thing, but you can't put a value with love ones or special friends.

Dan, I would never deny a loan in an emergency. I'm really talking about when someone approaches you and asks for a personal loan. (The non-emergency kind) They promise, or even swear, that they will pay you back soon. Then come the lame excuses why they can't (or won't) pay you back. It's a betrayal of a sort. The breaking of one's word. It eats away at you when you know they can pay you back but ARE CHOOSING to not do so. You know they are lying to you. I don't love them any less for it, but my future trust in them is lessened. That hurts.

As I stated before, I did use the word LOAN, as in expecting to be paid back or entering into an agreement. If you DO love your friends or family and value your relationship, DON'T do it. You have then put your relationship at risk. If you are compelled to give it away then as I stated and you as well, treat it as a gift. Don't expect it back.

It's sad that one must expect a friend or family member NOT to repay a loan. But we know that is the case. There really is no honor system in the western world. But at the same time, it's sad people love their money more than their family or friends, and are willing to end a relationship over it.

I once got a significant loan from a friend in lieu of doing a cash advance on a credit card.

I was meant to pay it off monthly, but after 2 months of payments, I got antsy and, yes, did a cash advance on a credit card to pay the friend off immediately.

I just didn't want to risk the friendship over something like this.

Be open minded with things and you probably won't have many regrets in your life.

Look at a lingerie catalogue when you first wake up, and all day long you'll have a thong in your heart.

...but don't be so open minded that your brain falls out of its casing.

The friendliness employees are usually the trouble makers in the company.

Keep your grocery receipts! At least for a day or two. Never fails, something is broken, left behind at the store, or I accidentally purchased the wrong product and hours later I'm rummaging through the nasty garbage can for the receipt. Should be easy to find but never is.

1) Do not ever expect real happiness from money or material things in life. Despite what you may think, and marketing may tell you, the nicest newest car, the biggest nicest home - etc only provide fleeting happiness at best.

2) Pray every day, at least say something to your creator. Yeah, he knows you are not perfect.

NEVER give your Social Security number to anyone who doesn't have to have it.

Your employer - yes
The IRS at tax time - yes
On an application for a security clearance - yes

Pretty much everyone else - NO!

When I had my internet hooked up with Comcast, the sales rep asked for my SSN. I said he didn't need it. After some arguing back and forth he finally gave up. No wonder identity theft is so common.
