I think mine will probably win, but before I spill I want to hear your stories.
What happened to you to teach you that lending money to a friend can be a serious mistake?
Now, just to be clear, I fully understand the concept of "giving" money to a friend with no expectations they will ever pay it back.
But the "lend" a friend asks for is usually a "lend" because the money is siginifcantly more than you would normally give. You lend it to them because its an emergency, and they are reliable, and its just to tide them over, right?
What's your worst lend story - the one where you said "never again?"
