    I'm going on holiday with a few friends next month and I booked the accommodation for us, which required a deposit and the rest to be paid upfront when we arrive. It meant my friends owed me about £25 each and everyone paid me back straight away except one friend.*

    She keeps telling me she's going to pay me but keeps forgetting, so asked me to remind her. I've reminded her three times now and she still hasn't done it. Normally, I wouldn't be annoyed, but she's notoriously bad with money to the point where she *and I can see her putting it off and turning round and asking if i can wait until she next gets paid.


    Normally, I wouldn't be annoyed but she is actually terrible with money and she keeps telling me she will pay me and actually ignored the last reminder I sent her. £25 is not a huge amount but it's more the principal than how much money. Am I being tight and unreasonable or do I have a point?*

    I have a friend who is *exactly* like this. I mean next time you remind her you can ask her to transfer the money online to you now so she doesn't forget. Or just casually drop it into a conversation with her like "oh did you transfer me the £25 deposit? Just wanted to double check because sometimes my online balance doesn't update for a while", to remind her and hopefully send a hint

    I would send her a message and say 'did you manage to transfer the £25 yet? I really need it for something so can you do it today if not' to try and force her hand, if she still doesn't then kick up a fuss about it
