It was never my intention to humiliate a friend, but I was given no choice.
Out of kindness, I lent some money to my friend in 2010 despite having financial crisis at that time. Knowing the pain of financial instability and almost had no food to eat during my job hunting days was easy to empathise with this friend.
So I lent her some money with total flexibility in returning it. She could just return it when she has a job with RM10 per month.
I kept in touch with her and really felt sorry for her that she could not get a job that she likes or want.
But... sometimes she pisses me off. During her financial crisis period, she had asked me and some mutual friends out for tea and I asked her what's the budget and she replied RM10. But when I asked her to return RM10 she said she got no money.
I was so angry that I didn't spoke to her for a year but only brief sms.
So when in 2013, I decided to get back my money again since I found out she is now quite stable financially despite the occasional jobless period.
Recently, I met up with her at a shopping mall and asked her about her condition and I asked for my money back with just RM 10 . Well, she said she could try working out the amount because she got not enough of cash since she's quitting her current job... Ok that's fine with me.
But what pissed me off the whole day was... Here's what she spent during the entire duration I was with her for lunch.
RM90 for a book
RM40 for lunch when mine is just RM23
RM6 for some bubble tea
RM60 for a nail polish.
And so when we were in her car, I tried pushing to get RM10 and whatever balance and she replied... "I don't think so I can pay you now... let's see end of the month la."
How hot I were in the car that she tried asking me to stop screaming. How can I not scream?
I brought up this topic with another mutual friend of ours and painfully I realised she never even bothered to repay me.
What's with the smirk "Oh... you are one of the lenient ones..." when I asked her to pay me back?
So with the advise of the mutual friend, I sent her a sms demanding for my money back with the breakdown of the things she spent in our last meet up.
Well, at first, I don't want to write the breakdown... but what kind of impression do you get from someone who owes you money telling you "I must have my fav bubble tea everyday?" Mind you, the bubble tea she orders is around RM5 minus GST.
Ok granted. She could have saved up those amount to splurge on herself... but what kind of impression do you get when she says "I cannot afford to save up RM1 per day" when I told her get a piggy bank and put your coins there whether for me or your daily bills.
She replied with apologies and how unintentional of her for getting me upset... and she will pay me back. Right. Empty words...
Again? Right. I'm going to ask her next what reminder methods does she want me to use? Knock on your front door? Mind you, she lives just 15 mins away from my house and her family members would love to see how she is humiliated (sigh...) . Or the easiest way: posting on her FB wall?
I'm thinking of the FB wall which saves me cab fare to her house.
Wow, what a sleazeball. She needs to pay up! Buying expensive stuff right in front of you like that? Wow. Teach her a lesson.

What a bitch... RM60 nail polish? What brand did she buy? Like my most expensive one isn't more than RM40.
I think she is one of those inconsiderate, brainless women out there who put other women who aren't like that to shame. I would say FB wall but the effect would be other people who adores her flaming you and some other people may judge you for "not trying other less public way to get back your money". Hah, people! *roll eyes* Maybe try the house first and try walking there if it is humanly possible
