My mom went about an entire year without asking to borrow money. That was a record, because she’s been borrowing (actually taking) money from me for well over 10 years.
A couple months ago, she needed $40 for gas money for the week. Or at least that’s what she told me.
I gave it to her.
About a week or two later, she stopped by to repay me!!!!!! WTH? It was so unlike her! And she tried to repay me $50, but I told her she only owed me $40.
I was happy that she took it upon herself to pay me back. 99% of the time, I never, ever see the money again.
