I'f someone borrowed $26 in 1986 and never paid it back until now....

How much should I collect?

Statute of limitations.

But it her idea to pay!!! She has been guilt ridden over it. We were only like 10 so it was a big deal.

She feels the sin of not paying me back has caused her life to derail. (yes she's a religious nut) So how much should I charge?

$26 unless you fixed an interest rate at the time.

Tell her $50 for inflation and interest.

She's sort of fun...kind of reminds me of Piper Laurie in Carrie.

Principle and a trip to your downtown - a visit to your snackateria, a taste of your lady ham, some linguistics on the labia.

Inflation only:

What cost $26 in 1986 would cost $53.58 in 2012.

So I'd say $55 would seem appropriate... rounding up.

In 1986, an LP probably cost around $10. Now a CD (not discounted) costs about $20. So R8's suggestions of $55 sounds pretty good.

Go far away..

2% interest over the years would be $58.36

by Anonymousreply 1204/18/2013

According to this site, $55.22...

Never lend anything to anybody expecting to actually get it back.

Return the gesture to make things right by accepting the $26.

What ten year old in 1986 had $26 to spare?

by Anonymousreply 1604/18/2013

Tell her to donate to a local gay charity.

by Anonymousreply 1704/18/2013

Ditto what R17 said. Fifty bucks to charity.

Also a vote for R17s idea.

What kind of person charges their friend interest?

by Anonymousreply 2004/18/2013

You should've had her kneecaps broken YEARS ago.

Sadly, it will take more than twenty-six dollars to get a life.

Another 80s thread.

Just tell her to take you out for dinner/lunch or something.

Yeah I'm with R16, what ten year old has $26?

by Anonymousreply 2604/19/2013

What a random amount. What was it used for OP?

by Anonymousreply 2704/19/2013

$32.00, their Members Only jacket, their VHS copy of "Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome", and their "Top Gun" Soundtrack cassette. That is all. Next case!
