Dear Jamal, One of my friends borrowed five dollars from me some time in December and has yet to pay me back. This is a dear friend of mine! I care about her very much and feel stuck. What should I do? I have asked her many times for my five dollars back. Should I keep asking or should I let it go?
Student Who Needs Her Money Back
Jamal’s response: Well, if this is a dear friend of yours then you should be able to tell or talk to her about anything, am I right? The first thing you should do is ask her one more time, and if she does not give it back, then you should tell her “I don’t want this five dollars to break our friendship but if I let you borrow something, I expect to get it back.” If she asks you for something else, don’t give it to her!
