How to ask someone to pay me back money?
My new roommate borrowed $4 from me to take the bus. I ****ing should've said no. Every time anybody borrows money from me, they never repay. To date I've lost like $100 from various people who never repay. Half the time they just pretend like it never happened, other times they just make up some lame excuse and never do it.
How should I ask him for it back? I know $4 is nothing, but I feel if I don't get it back, I'll hate him for the rest of the time I spend living with him. And it's exactly because $4 is nothing that's why he should be able to pay it back. Seriously, how hard is it to come up with $4 to repay me? He said he was gonna pay it back the day of borrowing, but it's already been a week and I've bumped into him a dozen times and still nothing.
Also I think he's lying when he said he needed $4 to take the bus, because he told me he goes to the same school as me, and my school's ID card acts as a bus pass. So why would he need to pay cash fare?
Actually, I'm the one who needs to pay cash fare, because I graduated already and my school ID card expired. So I actually do need that $4 for the bus.
Let's just see what happens...
