    I'm stuck for money just now, i've had to pay a big bill which has scuppered me for the month....

    but my "friend" the foot and wardrobe breaker...wont drop the subject of giving me money!!!she's really starting to piss me off...im meant to be going to see Prince with her next week and to be honest i don't even want to go now, never mind not having the money to pay for it...

    she's bugging me soooooooooo much

    she said herself, after i said "listen i appreciate the offer but i can't accept money from you",

    and she's like "sorry i wont push...but why don't you think about it until tonight when i come and get you and we'll go to a cash machine and look at your statement and see how much i can give you"

    AAAAAAAAAARGH i want to cry

    Nah it's not over the wardrobe....

    i have told her that i don't want to take money from her, and thanked her for the offer but i couldn't take anything, and shes said if its making me uncomfortable she'll stop pressuring and i told her it was but that i did appreciate her gesture....

    but she keeps going on about it, its getting me down, i dont want to be in debt to a friend...its just a principle i have and i wish she'd drop it

    I wasn't stressed, it's only until next Friday, so it's nothing i can't handle, just need to watch the expenses...

    i just don't know what to do, don't want to come across as ungrateful but she is bad for latching onto something and not letting go...she wants to do everything with me as well...if i say im tidying the house she'll want to come and help...

    shes very insecure :(

    Over the years..when things have gotten tight, my friends and I have all borrowed from one another, but I totally understand what you're saying. It's a good practice 'cause even we, as good friends have had disagreements about who owes what..as far as wanting to clean house...send her my way.
