I'm your best friend, am I??

It is early of the month and you’ve just got your pay check when your friend who never call you for like 10 years suddenly ring you to ask about your health. Hmmm…something is wrong somewhere. But being a good friend you are, you didn’t hang-up the phone right away but still talk politely to your friend. Imagine your conversation will be like this : *Toot..Toot…(phone ringing)*
You : Hello? Friend : Hello my dear friend. How are you??? You : Erk??? Who is this?? Friend : Hey it’s me, your dear friend in high school (Duh!! Like you still remember about that friend!!) You : Oh! You..yeah watsup?? Friend : I’m just wondering how are you now. You : I’m good. Thank You.. Friend : How is your grandma then?? You : (??) Ok!! Spit it out. I know you didn’t call me to ask about my grandma. She was dead long time ago. What do you want? Friend : Mmmmmm..I’m your good friend, am I?? You : Yeah! Yeah! What is it?? Friend : Actually I need to borrow some money from you. You : I already figure that out earlier. How much?? (maybe 100 or 200) Friend : Not much! I only need $5000.00 You : WHAT?????????????? Friend : Hey, I’m your good friend, right??
In this kind of situation, what do you think you will do if your friend suddenly wants to borrow money from you???? Do you think you will hang-up the phone?? Or maybe you will scold your friend like there is no tomorrow? Or maybe you will tell him to buzz off (Anyway, is not like he is your best friend)?
If I have to be in this kind of situation, I won’t tell him to kill himself and go to hell. Hehe! I will only need to tell him that I don’t have the amount of money he wanted to borrow. But…(yes! There is a but here). I will tell him to apply the cash advance payday loan and spare me from the headache of finding a way to help him to get the money he needed when I, myself don't have so much cash. The bonus here is, I won't have to worry if he didn't pay me back the money as it is not exactly my money, right? Hehe
So, what do you think you will do if your old friend suddenly come to borrow quite a big sum of money from you??

*kepala bengong now..cannot think what to write.. :)

memang macam tu kalau orang mau pinjam duit..masa mau pinjam bukan main lagi baik..sekali masa mau bayar..punya main banyak alasan..nasib ko kena bayar..kalau nda..? lagi lah tensen..

Pasal pinjam2 duit ni malas sua mau fikir..

Actually kawan sa pun baru 2 - 3 hr yang lalu pinjam the same amount RM5000... Gillaaaaaaa!!!!

Sia x mau sua kasi pinjam skrg.. Even RM 1000 yg sa kasi pinjam urg (not the same person la) pun belum langsai lagi kena bayar... Time pinjam janji manis di tabur, bila da dapat mcm x tau ja ni..

Last few months he asked me for RM 5000 with a reason of paying his registration fee for his master programme.. He promised me that he will pay it back a week after as his father kunun mau jual suda buah kelapa sawit di ladang durang.. He said exactly, NEXT WEEK...

Then I decided to lend him but suddenly my heart changed.. My inner self keep saying "jangan kasi pinjam".. So I decided not to and I ingnored every call and smses from him..

Then he never contact me after that.. But a few days ago, he again asked me the same amount of money.. Sounds really deperate ni.. Emmm, mana sua kelapa sawit bapa dia? Ingatkan suda jual.. So maybe mau sambung Master programme tu sekadar alasan saja mangkali..

Nasib sa x kasi pinjam last time, kalu x sure x kena bayar balik ni...

Kalu x duit, jangan sambung belajar..
Ada Degree kan, cari la kerja..

I still remember last time he said he will be a rich man in near future.. As I knew, he involved in this so called "business networking"..

I never believe in getting richer with just a blink of eyes..

So apa sua kunun jadi sama business dia tu? x buli picaya langsung...

I really wanna blog about this but i'm afraid he might be reading my blog..

Owh ya, rupanya no me alone.. Semua kawan2 high school pun dia pinjam.. "Jangan jak dia hutang sama Ah Long cukup la" said one of my schoolmate..

Kadus_Mama said...

freddass ~ wah!!!!!! your kawan lagi melampau nie..punya lah!! RM5k is not a small amount of money tau..gilos sekali!
Nasib ko tia kasi pinjam dia..if not, habis lah nda kena kasi bayar balik!!

chegu carol said...

kalu cara dia ckp mcm yg ko describe, gerenti i say no on the spot. I'm your good friend kunun...hahaha

remember the lady friend i blogged about yg mau pinjam duit and minta tulung jadi guarantor for her. well, smpai skrg i didnt hear from her. i also feel awkward mau pi kedai dia trus...see, duit punya pasal, friendship pun buli rusak oh...*sigh*

Kadus_Mama said...

chegu carol ~ ya!! ya!! still remember about her..itu baru lah kan..bila mau sumthing baru pandai cari orang!
what to do...money is the source of all evil!

Princess_Sabrina said...

What kind of friend she is?? Even Bestfriend also dont simply borrow their friend's money i guess.

Shame on her! Boo-hoo!

Yeah sometimes MONEY could break the relationship..:x

Kadus_Mama said...

princess_sabrina ~ Yeah..money is the source of all evil..Hehehe!!

Poppet said...

uiii, klu siapun sia tia akan kasi ooo.. lebih2 lagi kawan yg tiba-tiba muncul... klu sia millionaire mungkin sia kasilah.. in drp ada risk saving sia utk anak2 burn gitu ja.. bagus sia tdk kasihkan... anak2 lebih penting bagi sia.

Kadus_Mama said...

poppet ~ iya..sia setuju on what you say tu..daripada ko risk the money macam tu kan..better save it for emergency..mana lah tau..
