The girl is new to the office, has only been here maybe a couple months. About three weeks ago, I asked her how things were going – this was on a Monday – and she said she had about 20 cents to last her until Friday. That answer was something I wasn’t expecting and I felt put on the spot.
You know what I did, right? I loaned her some money – 15 bucks. You know the rest of the story, right? She has yet to pay it back.
She seems nice enough around the office but never brings the subject up and I don’t know how to. I mean, I could use the money this week myself. Why do people do this?
Any suggestions on how to approach her?
