What kind of interest do you want to pay? ;-)

What type of whore are you getting for $1?

May I suggest a Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac mortgage? Apparently, you need not pay it back. And those of us in the Fluther Collective who pay U.S. taxes will foot the bill.

Don’t even need to engage Paypal!

i bet a dollar in gas won’t get you home.

Sure. I’m at work, so you will have to come and get it tho. Also, you should know I’ll be tracking it!!

You’d have to sign a promissory note and have your signature notarized, you know.

I believe the notary at my bank charges $4 to perform that service.

(Batteries are extra.)

Yes, but someday, and that day may never come, I’ll call upon you to do a service for me.

Let me see, you are 8 light minutes away from home and you need only 1 dollar worth of gas…...

@Eambos: You’re not asking for your own personal reference, are you?

i have a very powerful vehicle, boxing.

thanks to everyone for you selfless though highly conditioned donations.

eambos's avatar

No, I just fear that he may leave pissing fire.

shilolo's avatar

Well, if you wanted a donation, that should have been stipulated. Borrowing means to take and then replace (and in the case of money, traditionally with interest).

This actually reminds me the days I lived right by Manhattan Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge in Brooklyn. I was very poor then but that did not stop folks on the street from occasionally asking me for a quarter. Just a quarter, they said. I could not, honestly, I still owed the landlord rent. But their eyes told me they did not trust me. Well, I could not blame them.

8lightminutesaway's avatar

Well it is borrowing, I just plan on dying before I get a chance to pay it back ;)

Of course you can, now do you have change for a 10?

Knotmyday's avatar

Here’s a $20. Should be, what, four gallons and change of gas? Don’t pay back, pass it on.
