Normal I Officially Hate Collecting Money

A good friend of mine owes me a lot of money for U2 and Frames tickets, and I just sent her an e-mail about it because she's away at school. I mean, she's always good for it and I know she'll give me the money soon...I just hate asking.

That's why I hire a loan shark to collect for me. Much easier on me that way.

I would feel the same way were it not for the credit card bills looming large.

When I saw U2 with my (ex) best friend I told her to pay me back for the tickets whenever. I got the tickets in January, the show was in May. She waited until the day of the show, and was snotty about it, when she paid me back.

Ex best friends.

My best friend is notorious for this kind of thing. 10 bucks is one thing here and there, but never more than that anymore. She'll eventually give it to me - but like a year later. I loaner her some of my negatives from a concert we went to about 4 years ago = I STILL havent gotten them back. She finally admitted she lost them.

My philosophy too. That way there's no hard feelings.

I owed a friend $$$$ from a vacation. Now she would owe me $$$$ for the U2 tickets. Each amount was pretty much equal. Debts cancelled each other out. That worked out pretty well.

Believe it or not, I just got paid TODAY via mail (money order) for tickets to a Springsteen show in July of 2003!!! Needless to say, I'm not friends with this douchebag anymore and it took filing a small claims suit to get the guy to pay up for four tix I sold him. He used to be a real good friend of mine.
