Virgo Avenger started a thread on the board asking who would bail you out of jail – a friend or a family member. I feel either would bail me out and this reminded me of something, Ben told me when we talked a few days ago.
He said he had given a couple he knows a fairly large amount of money. He doesn’t have a lot of money so basically he gave this couple what he did have and told them if they could not find the rest of what they needed, they should come back and he would try to help them more. I assumed he meant, they should come back after payday and he told me this tentatively.
He was tentative about telling me because the money will be used to pay the IRS so these two don’t go to jail. Apparently a good number of people have told him he should not have donated to their cause but he said he has known the couple for going on 3o years and they have always been supportive of him.
“30 years of friendship is worth something,” I said. “Supportive friends are very hard to find, especially people who will stick with you over decades so. It’s pretty much priceless so I think that was right.”
He was very relieved when I agreed his decision as no one likes being told their a dumb ass when they’re following their heart. This is a (fair) exchange of energy from my perspective.
Who you give your money the way, Ben did? Why or why not?
