    Taking money from someone I know makes me feel bad most of the time.

    I'd take money from a stranger if that meant I never had to see them again icon_razz.gif

    Why are they giving me this money? Wouldn't that be the CEO of the company I work for? Sure, I know who he is, but he's still a stranger. Also, in what form is the money being given to me? What is the catch?

    Same here, I have a hard time asking anyone for money because it makes it feel like they have some kinda power over me...I don't even like asking family for money...

    Yes, why not unless there were some dubious requirements to accepting.

    Exactly. I always feel so indebted to them. Even after I pay them back.


    Yepp...and I hate the type of people who after you pay them back, try to bring it back up in the future...like "well I gave you money when you needed it"...so to avoid that whole thing, I just don't ask for money and I'll go without until I can come up with the money on my own. #ego

    Thats why, when your buds are as good as family, you just give them the money and walk away. If they want to spot it back for whatever reason, do it over a coffee, or something... I never hold a debt over my friends. That ain't friendship, that's the mafia.

    I suppose it would depend on the situation. If by accepting something from this stranger, am I obligating myself in some way?

    On the flip side of this topic, have you ever seen a stranger and felt compelled to give him or her money?

    Have you ever helped an elderly person, a young mother, or anyone who appeared that he or she would benefit from your generosity by handing them cash, paying for their groceries or covering some other expense?
