Hypothetical: Your best friend asks you for a loan of $3000. He or she has not been paying his/her mortgage and needs the money to stave off foreclosure. You have the money in your savings account and can afford to lend it without putting yourself in dire financial straits (though it will postpone a major purchase that you've been saving for). You know that there is a risk in lending the money because he or she is such a bad money manager. What do you do?
Friends and Money
Lend the money. He or she is your best friend after all.
Give him or her the money.
Don't lend the money. It's a sure way to ruin a friendship and you'll probably never see the money again.
Something else (what?)
