Friend went shopping borrowed £10 as didn’t have wallet at the time, said would pay me back.

Said he’d pay me back the day after, and to make sure he did.

It’s been 3 wks, saw him again today and still nothing...

Has he forgotten if so how should I remind him?

Next time you're near a cash point, ask him directly to go withdraw the money.

Or you could send him your account number and sort code to online bank transfer the £10.

You can't forget when you can literally give/transfer you the money at that very moment.

Like the sound of the 2nd option but how do u do it without sounding pushy?

Eg he was going to use part of the £10 to buy a £1 umbrella from Poundland so I said to him because it was raining did u get the umbrella, and then we went past Asda and I said yeah lucky u got that umbrella instead of paying £10 here... he just laughed and agreed so idk if he’s forgotten or is pretending that he did 😩

Honestly, don't overthink this.

Go shopping with him, "borrow" £10 off him.

Buy something (non-perishable), keep your receipt, then after he's gone go back for a refund.

Win-win.

If you've been asking him to pay you back multiple times, then you're allowed to be pushy! It isn't rude to request money that you lent to someone back. They are being the rude one by not turning it in a timely manner. A decent friend wouldn't mess their friend around regarding money.

Yeah igy and if there’s no other way I’ll do that.

The thing is it’s while we’re on placement so I’m literally with him just one day there - but all day...

Ideally I’d want to just remind him he owes £10 in a casual way so that he knows and so that I don’t look like a d*ck

Borrowing £10 back from him is the most "natural" way of this ending amicably for the both of you.

Reminding someone owing you money is not a very "British" thing, that's all. A lot of us find it embarrassing.

Yeah true, because I’m on placement tho with him for the rest of the yr tho I don’t want to make it awkward... but I also know leaving it too long will be my fault!

I totally agree with ya 👏

Never lend money that you can’t afford to lose. He clearly isn’t a good friend.

If I was you I’d just drop him a text saying “hey I’m really struggling this month, any chance you could ping me back that 10 pound I lent you not long back? It would be a massive help, thanks mate” that way he can’t be aggy Cus you’ve asked in a way that frames it like he’s helping you out

Since he said from memory to make sure he paid me back on the nxt day, shd I msg on Sunday saying “hey u said to remind u about the £10 you borrowed at CBM... if it’s easier here’s my PayPal/bank details etc”?

Does that sound fine or rude if you received that....
