Can’t Dissuade From Being Paid

| Related | March 13, 2015

(My brother is six years older than me, and always asks to borrow money. I answer my phone:)

Brother: “Hey, [My Name], I’m in a really tight spot right now. Can I borrow, like, $20 until I get paid?”

Me: *getting tired loaning him money* “Sorry, I don’t really have any money to loan right now…”

Brother: “Well, I really need it. I’ve overdrawn my account.”

Me: “I’m sorry, but I don’t have any money to loan.”

Brother: “Oh… okay.”

(I think that’s the end of it until I get a call in couple hours later.)

Brother: “Hey, [My Name], I talked to mom. She said she owed you money for paying her car payment last week, so I’m going to go get that from her then pay you back when I get paid.”

Me: “WHAT? I need that money to pay MY car payment!”

Brother: “Oh, well, I’m already on my way to mom’s; I’ll pay you back when I get paid.” *click*

(I called my mom and told her not to give it to him because I needed it. She told me to stop being selfish and gave him my money… He never paid me back!)
