  • Borrowing money

    Im wondering how some of you are with regards to money. So lets assume you run short of cash are you straight on the phone to Mum and Dad for a sub or would you feel terrible having to ask for money ?

    I have a younger Brother who I feel takes the piss by asking for money. I feel that he should learn to stand on his own two feet and not bother Parents. I feel that because Dad gives him money he is actually making my Brother worse because he will never respect money and will never be able to stand on his own feet.

    My view is that if I cant afford something then tough shit......do without.

    Obviously on certain occasions borrowing money to pay a bill is slightly different, like if your gonna get the leckie cut off or sommat.

    Im thinking about asking my dad for a loan so I dont have to live at my mates with my baby til the council give us a house, but we have only really started speaking in the last couple of weeks for the first time in years so feel so cheeky and have no idea how to ask, so probably never will end up gettin any!!

    I dont think parents should let there kids take the piss though

      My mum has less money than I do :|. But my dad occasionally gives us extra money if it's for something big, like a college trip, and he more often than not offers to.

      I don't agree with kids running off to their parents when they're having a little financial difficulty. Rah, I dunno. I agree with you I think Becky . If it's something really bad that's gonna affect them in the near future quite badly, then help is acceptable.

        Borrowing money off my rents or my mates is like, last resort. I mean I have some money, I do get a small wage so like, that's enough. I don't need to waste my money and I do overtime if I want more.

        My brother on the other hand...borrows my parents dry...he takes every penny he can get - he borrows around £40 each day, which my parents just can't afford. When he was into drugs, he used to steal from me, mama, papa, anything he could get his mits on he'd take. He's 21 now, gets a nice meaty wage at the end of the week, and manages to spend it all in 2 days, what I earn in a month. Twat.

            Rarly ask for money, if I do borrow money off my parents I usually give it back the next day or os.

                My parents pay most of my stuff, while I usually pay for clothes and cd's and food I eat while at school or in weekends.
                I depend heavily on my parents really. Though I have over the last year come to pay for more and more stuff by myself.
                Up until 18 I had to ask for money for everything.

                  I forgot to mention he does not pay it back. I lose my rag over it because I do know what its like to have no money yet I could never go asking for £100 quid here and there, I think my Brother is an arsehole and I have told him this, it really does annoy me.

                        I don't like asking to borrow money. Not even from my parents. It is like a last resort, and it is for something serious, not like I want to go out and buy clothes with it or something.

                        My sister, on the other hand, is a total cow when it comes to money. She doesn't seem to understand the value of it, and spends up to fifty pounds in a day if she has it (she's 15). she never buys credit, yet wants to use my mum's minutes and she rinces it out. She's really bad.

                          I really hate asking my parents for money. But sometimes it's a necessity. The place I work couldn't offer good overtime in March, and they are still taking basic rate tax even though I was assured it would be sorted by this pay packet. I'm about £150 short this month, so will need to ask, unfortunately
                          None of us can predict the final outcome of our actions, and few of us even try; most of us just do what we can to prolong a moment's pleasure or to stop the pain. And even when we act for the noblest of reasons, the last link of the chain all too often drips with someone's blood.'

                            I still live with my parents, but they normally don't give me any money. I have a part time job and get about £70 a week. The only time I borrow money is if i either haven't had time to go to the ATM or if I have no money left and I will get paid in a couple of days. I always pay it back a couple of days later.

                            My younger sister who is 14, just uses my mother as her own personal ATM..she is always asking for money for everything, regardless of whether my mum can afford it or not.

                              32 is a bit old to be always going and asking for money, like it would be a different situation if you were in a very serious situation like you couldn't pay a bill.
