Re: Owe a friend some money, is this payment justified?

I already talked to my friend about it. We agreed that I would post on here to find out the resolution.

He thinks I'm a scumbag and has said that he will never bet with me again.

I have payed him every single time I have owed him money. I even payed him this time as my total debt was $250. I gave him $100 and told him about this conflict.

I am not a scumbag and I really think he is. I just asked him about splitting the referral and only owing $75 and he completely flips out. IMO, this is uncalled for as he doesn't even give thought to chopping the referral and believes it is all his since he signed up first. What a bastard.

I may not pay him anything because of this and we may no longer be friends. He said I'm cut off, lol.

Re: Owe a friend some money, is this payment justified?

there should not be any instance where the OP owes more or less than $75.

Anyone suggesting still 150 is nuts.

you are more of a douche here

he could have been a bit unnecessary with the extent to which he flipped out, but taking a loan and trying to pay it back with friendly gestures you should be doing anyway is very cheap.

Re: Owe a friend some money, is this payment justified?

Because this thread is winding down, I'm going to jack it.

Let's say you are getting $20/day on your college ID card to be used for food only, as a result of your apt not being ready and being forced to live in a hotel. Using this $20/day, you buy yourself and your girlfriend breakfast, starbucks, and lunch every day.

At night, you go to your girlfriends apt bc your hotel sucks, smells bad, and you can't have sex since your roommate is also living in that room. (You are not paying for the hotel btw) At her place, you cook dinner with food she paid for at the grocery store, mainly just sides like mac-n-cheese since you bought omaha steaks at the beginning of the year, but occasionally full meals.

Should you be splitting the cost of dinner groceries with your girlfriend? Or does your paying for breakfast and lunch make up for it? Does it matter that the $20/day is 'free'?

Oh and any $$ not used per day gets rolled over. When you finally do move into your apt any remaining funds are zeroed. You plan on raiding the convenience store on campus before then though with whatever money you have left to buy TP, soap, laundry detergent, bottled water, and a year's supply of reese's fast break bars.

ggoogogogog discuss.

Re: Owe a friend some money, is this payment justified?

if he really flipped out after suggesting to split the referral i would have told him to f off.
It seems like there are bigger issues than this $75 though.
Expecting to have the full 150 wiped away is almost as crazy.

We are saying exactly what you are suggesting, but with less words and more common sense implied.
Then why not say he (friend) keeps the referral fee and OP owes $75?

I wasn't talking about who hands money to who, but it seemed like some suggestions implied the friend was supposed to consider his $75 share as partial payback of the loan.

edit edit nevermind

It is very obvious that this needs to be discussed before you do the referral thing if you want it to count for anything.

i think he told the gym his friend referred him. So the gym credited $150 to the friend's account.

I always think people like the OP are made up, and only in like movies or whatever. But I guess I'm wrong. Nice to know society has so many great people.
