I received a call from my cousin today. You know, the one that asked for $1k and refused to tell me what it was for. You can read that story here. Well he decided to call and apologize for the way our conversation went. He apologized for cursing me and hanging up. He stated that he had been under alot of stress lately. Me being the person that I am, told him if he needed to talk, he can still talk to me. Regardless of past issues, we are still family. He declined to talk about his problems but said he just wanted to call and apologize. I accepted his apology and told him whatever problems he has, he needs to just pray about them and keep a positive outlook. This time, we ended on a positive note.

Five minutes later, he calls me back and says oh yeah, can I borrow $200. *sigh* OK, you know I am going to ask you why you need it. If you don't tell me, you know you won't get it. He still declined to tell me what it was for and I still declined the loan request. This time instead of cursing and hanging up, he just hung up.

What is his deal? Does he think he can call and give a halfhearted apology just to get some money? I am sick and tired of it. I hate to do it but I think it is time to write him off for awhile. Not permanently, but long enough for him to know that I will not stand for him acting like a spoiled child when he does not get what he wants.

Oh well, at least this time, SingleGuyMoney is not MAD!

    Wow! What is up with the fam this month? Is there a "let me borrow some money" fever going around, followed by a "get mad if you don't say yes right away" cough??

    You handled this pretty well. I would have have his number blocked after what he did the first time. Ungrateful folks urk me.

    Dimples: Yeah, I'm sure he knows NOT to call me again for money.

    Ha! I hope that he learns to say good bye for the next request!
