Loaning Your Money
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     "Neither a borrower nor a lender be." Have you heard that age-old saying before? It's usually good advice. But what does it mean? It means never borrow from someone nor loan money to someone.
 
2     Let's look at this example: Bob wants an iPod. He has only saved $20 toward it. At this rate, he'll never get it. He decides to ask his friend Joe to loan him the other $180 the iPod will cost.
 
3     "Joe, can you lend me $180? I really want an iPod. I run every morning. I've been trying to use my old CD player, but it's dying. Can you help me out?" Bob asks.
 
4     "Why don't you save up the money?" Joe asks Bob.
 
5     "I've saved $20, but I'm having trouble saving the rest. It will take too long," Bob replies.
