Losing a Friend Just for 2,120 Pesos

It is sad to know that one of my friends decided to break our bond just at the amount of 2,120 pesos.

Last month, a friend of mine texted me if I could lend her some cash so as to complete her money to buy a laptop. She asked for 2,000 pesos and promised to return it after three weeks. I sent her the money thru LBC and told her that she have to shoulder the 120 pesos fee. She agreed.

However, three weeks came and went but she’s still not paid with her debt. I texted her and e-mailed her in Facebook. Her cellphone number suddenly became unavailable and she is ignoring me in Facebook, even though she updates her account every single day. It is plain that she is avoiding me.

I texted her that I will move her payment if she still doesn’t have the money and I also told her that I do not want to lose my trust on her for a mere 2,120 pesos. My last communication to her fell on deaf ears.

What is 2,120 pesos for a good friendship? I am willing to write off her debt if she just say so, but this wall of silence that she placed between us gives me a signal that we are not friends anymore.

  1. what a lame way to lose a friend...

    just be happy about it - because your friendship came to a test, and results shows she's not worthy of a friend.

  3. have you checked if her place was devastated by the ondoy incident?

    you may have seen her facebook updated daily but it may not be her but "could be someone else"...

    just checking...

    hope you are ok after Ondoy...

    God bless!

    1. Ah, I know that she is OK. She is not that devastated by Ondoy.

      Is that possible that someone else is using her account, or that someone hacked her account. Hmmm (scary)

      BTW, I am willing to give her the 2 thou if she will just tell me instead being silent about it.

      Yah, I am ok. Too bad for the people below the mountains, they are badly hit by Ondoy

  4. she could have just said that she can't pay for a while instead of keeping silent.
    at least now you know that she isn't worth to be your friend. :)

      "SIGH"

      It really sucks to lose a friend just because of money. Money is nothing compared to friendship.

      Hmmm...yes, it may be better to be without her. But another part of my brain feels sad about it.
