As Dave Ramsey would say....just chalk it up as "stupid tax". We all pay it at times, some more than others. Learn your lesson and move along.
Nah. If I end up not getting the money back, that's one thing, but I'll take him to court and do my best to make him regret doing this. I literally feel at this point that its not about the money anymore, it is about him learning not to use and abuse his friends. He's 30, time to be a man and keep (or at least try to keep) his word.

Friends, renters, employees. I've been in several different situations.
I've also "loaned" money with no expectation of getting it back, but not 4-figure money; I don't give gifts like that to just anybody.
This is my take on a 4-figure loan to someone I consider a friend.
If I'm a good enough friend to make the loan, and it becomes clear the other person is just taking advantage of me, then obviously I'm the only person who values the friendship; so I no longer worry that taking them to court will ruin the friendship, since I'm obviously the only one being a friend.
I wouldn't care if the person paid $10 a month to pay off the $1000; that'd be just fine, and tells me the person understands his responsibility and the 2-way nature of friendship.
If I loan someone a significant amount that the borrower never even attempts to repay, or if I make repeated loans, even after never being repaid for previous ones, I'm not being a good friend; I'm buying friendship.
Excellent post. I agree 100%
