Spin off of the other thread, but this time, someone close to you wins after taxes 100million. Someone who you have selflessly helped out before. Would you want them to help you out? What if they didn't? Well that other thread reminded me of something. I used to date this girl, but even after we stopped dating, I still helped her a lot. So many times I gave her rides, and not short ones. Several times I bought her phone cards so she could use her pre-paid phone. Most of all, paid her co-pay on her surgery, as well as her expensive prescription medicine. Loaned her money several times. She always promised to pay back, but never did. Anyways, she got a settlement from a lawsuit and after everything was cleared, banked about $80,000. Well, I didn't ask for anything but after that I didn't hear from her for a while. She went out bought herself a new car, spent a bunch of money on some "friends" that suddenly missed her after the settlement but were absent while she was in need. I was waiting for her to remember me, but she didn't. I asked her about the loans and phone cards she promised to repay and she just never responded back. Well, fast forward five months, she's in a rehab center and she is calling me to come get her to take her home. I asked her where her friends are. She said "busy at work and can't come" and I said "so am I". If she had just paid back the loans I would have been okay. If she had paid back all the money I spent on her or something close, that would have been great. If she had threw in a few extra hundred to cover my time and efforts helping her, that would have really said a lot about her, but NOTHING when she owed me money while handing out cash to people who use her? Since then I have never spoken to her. No, it's not about money, it's about character.
