I have known my friend for a few years now and became close fast. Almost a year ago he moved out west which is about a 2-3 day drive from me. Before he left I borrowed 30 dollars from him I told him I would pay him back when I could now it’s been half a year. I cannot pay him back because I don’t have a job I been looking for almost 2 years and no one wants to hire me for whatever reason. He’s being very rude about it it’s like our friend ship meant nothing to him yet when he was homeless when he was here my parents and I let him stay here for days on end for nothing and this is how he treats me.
A true friend wouldn't pressure you to give back $30. He should know your situation and realize you can't pay him back right now. He's making a big deal over nothing. He doesn't sound like a good friend, it may just need time though.
Friends and money are often not a good combination. Any person who lends should never lend more than an amount they are comfortable with never seeing again. There are no guarantees that the other person will pay you back. Any person who borrows should make sure they have a means of paying back borrowed money. I've seen many friendships end because of money borrowing issues. Brook, I understand that you want to pay back the money and you can't due to your current situation, but not everyone is as understanding.
