Every few months my friend will text me, saying that her parents need me to lend them some some money for gas. I do get the money back but I'm starting to get annoyed at the fact that these people in their 40's are borrowing money from their daughter's 19 year old friend, instead of figuring out how to manage their own finances (maybe instead of buying weed and alcohol, they could put their bloody money to better use).

*shrug* Don't lend them it then

Personally anyone saying they 'need' me to give them money is in for a shock, esp if they haven't even got the decency to ask themselves instead of putting their daughter up to it.
