Long story short, about half a year ago I mentioned to a friend that I was going through some hard times financially. She asked me how much I needed, but I told her I didnâ€™t want her help (too much pride asking or accepting help from anyone) I didnâ€™t want to give her the exact amount I need to help out, but I jokenly told if someone would lend me $1,500 I would be okay.
For my birthday she gave me a shirt and a birthday card. In that card came with a check of $1,500. I was stunned. I didnâ€™t know what to do or say. She told me to use it to get back on my feet. She stated she didnâ€™t care if i paid her back tomorrow, in 6 months, or in 2yrs. She trusted me on me paying her back when I can.
Some events happened to where she does not want to be friends anymore and now she is threatening me to take me to small claims court. My intentions have always been to pay her back. Every last penny. Thatâ€™s never been the issue. What do I need to do to get more time? Iâ€™ve asked her, but sheâ€™s not giving in. Again, I am going to pay her back.
