  •  So far I've been lucky - trustworthy friends. (0+ / 0-)

    The one who wasn't trustworthy (and turned out not to be my friend) was the ex-roommate from hell who took me for a ride without benefit of paper. Fortunately she still owes me that lump of cash, which will keep her psychotic ass far far away from me (she assumed I'm as malicious and vindictive as she is, and she knows my brother's a lawyer). I consider that lost money a) a cheap insurance policy and b) a valuable lesson.

    And if nothing else? If the friend reneges on the loan (never has enough to pay you back, but always has enough for a new expensive acquisition cough*myex-roommate*cough), that piece of paper is concrete evidence to wave at someone to explain why that person is no longer your friend.
