My pal Sandy is a serious jerk. I put up with her antics, because both of us have been friends since grade school. Sandy plus I grew up in the same town, plus both of us have known each other for about 20 years. Last week, Sandy asked to borrow $200 to fix her a/c device. I didn’t have $200 extra, but Sandy was desperate. I loaned Sandy money in the past, plus she has consistently paid myself and others back. Sandy was supposed to pay me back the following week, when she was paid. I didn’t hear anything from Sandy for weeks, until I decided to chase her down. She didn’t have any money, plus she said the a/c device was still broken. I asked which a/c service repair she used, plus she could not remember the actual name. I was starting to feel entirely duped, until Sandy showed me the receipt from the a/c device service supplier. I legitimately thought Sandy was pulling my leg, however she was just as miserable as I happened to be! We contacted the a/c device service supplier, plus threatened them with a lawsuit. The a/c service supplier charged Sandy $178 for the repair, plus the a/c device was still not functioning properly. In the end, Sandy got the a/c device fixed properly, plus the service supplier received a less than great review on Yelp… Now that the a/c device has been repaired, Sandy better pay me back soon. My truck engine has been acting up, plus I’m going to need money for the repair. I also need modern tires plus brakes, plus a set of calipers.
