A friend lent me money, I repaid him; now he is avoiding me.? Topic: Distant writing a business
June 17, 2019 / By Clare
Question: I am living in a foreign country and don't have many friends. Owing to a problem with my foreign ATM card it was necessary for me to borrow 200 EUR from 'George' and I was able to pay him back immediately by transferring money directly from my account to his--I have funds in the bank; just no ATM card. Then, because of a continued delay in getting a proprerly functioning card I wrote him an email asking him to do the same thing again--then I thought better of it and retracted the request with profuse apologies. i ended up having to torture someone else with the favour. Maybe this is my guilt talking but he seems distant--I don't see him all that often to begin with but when I welcomed him back from a business trip (I began with 'don't worry! I don't need anything, just saying hi) he said he was busy; he also has not returned a text message. I realise a friend is not a bank but a foreigner has few options sometimes. am I imagining things? is he just genuinely busy?

...just give him some space for a while to think things through....if he is a true friend he will understand and things should return to normal eventually......in the meantime find some new friends.....

Perhaps if you think of it this way. Paper money simply facilitates the ease of trading goods and services between people. There is only so much demand for all the goods and services generated in an economy, so that if you suddenly start printing money, you get more money chasing the same amount of goods and services. This causes the value of the money to go down, thereby causing the price of all goods and services to go up (wealth cannot just be generated out of thin air, and there is a certain equilibrium). This is what we call "inflation." In other words, the more (extra) money the government prints, the more it devalues it's currency. Your friend could make everyone millionaires if he wanted to, by getting the government to print all this extra money. However, ask him if he would would rather be a millionaire in a worthless currency, or have an average amount of money in a strong currency! (There is no advantage to increasing your amount of money, if it's buying power diminishes at an equal rate).

If you go a borrowing, then you will surely go a sorrowing . A sure way to quickly end any sort of relationship with someone else is to borrow or loan money. When someone I like asks me for a loan, I give them money but with a clear understanding that it is a gift and nothing is ever to be said about repayment. Even with this method , people still usually avoid me once they have hit on me for money.

you're a delicate touch and regrettably pals/kinfolk be responsive to it. Its confusing to break the cycle considering you're a severe high quality individual and you do not prefer to be perceived through fact the undesirable guy. even with the undeniable fact that somewhat not undemanding love is suggested as for right here. end lending human beings funds that don't pay you returned and be strict approximately that! that's going to be confusing for you interior the fast term yet interior the long-term you have much less human beings taking income of you.

Yes: Steer clear of "online work-from-home business opportunities." These are all scams, and you'll end up worse off than when you started. That doesn't mean the internet can't be an important communication tool, but there is no magical business that creates money just by being online. Figure out a skill set that you have or can easily acquire, which you can use to add value to something and sell it for a higher price than you paid for it. The example I like to use is refinishing wooden furniture. Painted (as opposed to stained) furniture is very trendy now, and it is fairly forgiving technique, even if you are beginners. The idea is to find pieces like wooden chairs, dressers, desks, and tables that are structurally sound (stand up securely on all their legs, drawers pull smoothly, no deep gouges or cracks, etc.), but are being sold cheap, perhaps because they look worn out and beaten up. You can find them at thrift shops, garage sales, estate sales, or on craigslist. (Don't forget to check the "free" section on craigslist!) Invest in a package of medium grain sandpaper, a can of primer, a can of latex paint, and a couple of good paintbrushes. A bottle of dishwashing liquid can come in handy for cleaning up afterwards, and sometimes for cleaning up dirty furniture before you begin. (Rubber gloves come in really handy, too! But if you forget to wear gloves or spill some paint elsewhere on your skin, a little toothpaste will scrub it off.) Sand it, prime it, paint it, then list it on craigslist for twice what you paid for it. Be willing to come down on your asking price by a third, and you will still be making a profit. You can do the same with some metal furniture, like desks, shelves, and file cabinets. Look for pieces that may look scratched and even a little rusty, but have no rust holes or dents. Clean them up, sand lightly, wipe off sanding residue with a barely-damp rag, and spraypaint. You may need two coats. You'll be amazed how much better it looks with an investment of just a few dollars and an hour's work. People are willing to pay more for something that doesn't arrive still needing that work. Good luck!
