Why is it so hard to understand?
I've seen some hints that might indicate otherwise.
For example, "why would i borrow someone like you cash". "Lend cash" is the correct term. Carrying $6k in cash is good if you want to buy illegal stuff, otherwise use credit cards. And the statement about the number of people having 5k in the bank is way off. Plus, he doesn't wish to discuss the details about how he earns it.

Yes, to say "Why would I lend someone like you .... " or "Why would I loan someone like you ... " is proper English.

However, to say, I am going to "borrow you" something is a regional colloquialism. It's quite common here in Wisconsin, and I am sure it is common elsewhere.

"Loan" is a noun, not a verb. "Borrow you cash" might be a colloquialism, but it's awful grammar.

BILL Gates of Apple.

And you are trying to prove that you have friends too? Friends with real names? Cool.

Maybe with your loads of cash buy yourself some self-esteem so you don't feel the need to come into a forum and openly boast about it. Wealthy people don't, unless they very recently came into money...

And buy yourself an education. Most people know who BILL Gates is, American or not. And even my sister, who's in fourth grade knows better than to say, "Borrow someone like you cash."

No offense, but I'm just speaking the truth.

I really thought this thread would die after 2 pages, 3 at the most. Congrats to those who kept it going.

But the society practically DEMANDS that we should be wealthy and now that one person has the courage
to speak up about it, you all judge him!

I just looked in my dictionary, and loan can also be used as a verb.

Also, please see:http://education.yahoo.com/reference...ary/entry/loan

Many colloquialisms are examples of bad grammar. Colloquial language, by definition, is informal speech.


I think you are hiding behing proper grammar because you don't have as much money as bear. Proper grammar is not a sign of superiority.

I'm not hiding behind proper grammar or anything else.
I tried to engage him in a discussion about asset classes, but was rebuffed.

Regarding "loan", Merriam Webster has it as a verb until the mid-1300s. The reason I used that example is that a person with a lot of money(and who claims to work with monetary goods) will generally know financial terms well (i.e. not use "borrow you.."). I guess "Bob Gates of Apple" is also slang.
