WASHINGTON - OCTOBER 14: The words "In God We Trust" are seen on U.S. currency October 14, 2004 in Washington, DC. Although the U.S. constitution prohibits an official state religion, references to God appear on American money, the U.S. Congress starts its daily session with a prayer, and the same U.S. Supreme Court that has consistently struck down organized prayer in public schools as unconstitutional opens its public sessions by asking for the blessings of God. The Supreme Court will soon use cases from Kentucky and Texas to consider the constitutionality of Ten Commandments displays on government property, addressing a church-state issue that has ignited controversy around the country.

We all want to be good to our friends, and help them out when they need us. Whether it’s giving them advice, or lending them money in times of trouble. But sometimes it’s good to know when your little loan is probably more of a gift. Check out these signs that suggest you probably shouldn’t expect to be paid back anytime soon.

  • Here’s a few reasons not to loan money to a friend:
  • His credit score and shoe size are the same
  • His last fulltime job was paperboy
  • He tried to use a puppy as collateral
  • He blew his last paycheck on Beanie Babies
  • He doesn’t get paroled for at leas 15 to 25 years
  • He lives in a mansion, you sleep on his couch
  • You would rather cosign for Bernie Madoff
  • He wants to buy The Washington General
  • He wants to open a video store
  • He can’t afford a pool boy anymore
  • He once gambled on the MTV Video Awards
