The words that we use say a lot about our emotions, personalities, and thinking. It also turns out that for people who are fond of asking to borrow money, the words that they use say a lot about whether they are likely to pay you back or not.
Based on a study, a borrower who tries to appeal to the prospective lender’s emotional side, by mentioning a family member’s needs, religion or marriage, are less likely to fulfill their financial obligations. Meanwhile, people who mention needs for graduation, school or weddings are likely to pay back the money they owe.
Whatever the situation is, people borrow money for a reason. Recently, a Facebook chat between two college classmates surfaced online and raised the eyebrows of several people.
A Facebook user named Fehm Garcia sent a message to her college classmate she calls Mhay. At first, it seems like a friendly conversation where Fehm was checking how Mhay is. She also commented that Mhay’s job is better than her’s.
Angry at Her
However, she got offended when Mhay asked her where her salary is going. She started to say hurtful words to Mhay and even called her “selfish” for not lending her money. Still, the other party stayed very patient. Out of pity, she offered PHP1,000 to at least help with her needs.
But that did not suffice Fehm’s anger. She started calling her out since she’s fond of traveling.
Travel goals pa more!!!!
Wala daw pera pro pro travel!!
Madamot k lng mhay!
Apologized For the Mistake
This is when Mhay revealed that they are not even close and she’s wondering why she told her that she misses her.
After telling Mhay that she will block her and will not talk to her again, Fehm sent her another message after several hours telling her that she will now accept the PHP1,000 she is offering. According to her, she was just cranky earlier and she really needs the money.
