Evening Mo, CB2 sick with flu. I'm a lousy nurse. That Helen Merrill reminded me of Jo Swann. Did you ever hear her?

monica tell me how does it feel to be known as the queen of sunday nights??
  Sun. 1/13/13 7:07pm david:

i hear everyone in nyc has the flu - is it true?
  Sun. 1/13/13 7:07pm deanland:

@david and one and all: Happy New Year. @CB1: had it, in my case it morphed into Shingles. Chicken Pox cirus, dormant for decades, decides to revisit.

Mrs. Yankfan has been making Chicken Soup by the vat here at the homestead for what seems like weeks. Medicine notwithstanding, I am sure this is what has kept me alive.

"Oh, that's gotta hurt!"

Not the "check is coming" scam. That was old 100 years ago :-P

Great show tonight, Monica! I'm listening to you and watching Football and Golden Globes Pre-Game. . .
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/13/13 7:39pm G:

You found out your friend is a thieving liar. How much was *that* worth? :-P

Seriously, sympathies!
  Sun. 1/13/13 7:40pm Chris A:

You said it. Neither borrower nor lender be, at least where friends and colleagues are concerned. I think that's where I come down.
  Sun. 1/13/13 7:40pm kenny:

never lend something that you're not willing to give away. a lesson learned.
  Sun. 1/13/13 7:40pm Maggie:

I had an actual friend like that, no longer friends with her and all my other friends say I got off cheap. Lesson learned! There are so few people I would ever help out that way.
  Sun. 1/13/13 7:41pm Andrew Waterloo:

When you loan a friend money you must be willing to lose the friend or the money
  Sun. 1/13/13 7:41pm Chris A:

Yeah, I've learned the hard way too. On the lending side, that is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/13/13 7:42pm annie:

i've loaned money and i've borrowed money... you really have to say bye bye to it ...
  Sun. 1/13/13 7:43pm seang:

hunt the bitch down! bring a baseball bat
  Sun. 1/13/13 7:43pm CB1:

CB1 andme once worked with a fellow who said he was a vet from Iraq. Had shrapnel in his brain - unoperable. Had a 2 month old baby which we met. Needed money to secure an apartment and get out of the welfare system. We gave it. Never saw him again. Turned out to be a whole lie. The baby was his neigbors. OY!
  Sun. 1/13/13 7:45pm Listener Schned:

We <3 you Mo] Amazing after all your time in the biz of Music, you wavered on the "arm's-length rule of lending" that is, never ever loan to those who won't be w/i yr arm's length :)
  Sun. 1/13/13 7:45pm deanland:

Been stiffed, but only in business not by friends. Have learned to never have financial doings with family; the cost is too dear. Long ago I had a business associate who tried to put my piece of our collected earnings up his nose, but in the long run he made good (and uses me and the business we did together to try to get more business even now, nearly 30 years later). There's a guy, a friend, who owes me some money, which I never expect to see, but I knew I was helping him out when I did it, which is reward enough.
  Sun. 1/13/13 7:46pm tr`sh:

I'd guess the problem is more on the 'still waiting to be paid' drowning contract end.

An offer to help with that, instead? If not recovery (noting "hey, recovery can be really hard!") then on the preventative end.
  Sun. 1/13/13 7:46pm PJ:

Monica, if this were a close friend, I would advise you to forget about it and put it down as something you learned about their character. But this doesn't sound like a close friend, and it sounds instead like a scammer. I would take her to small claims court. It's kind of a hassle, but you will get your money back.
  Sun. 1/13/13 7:47pm CB1:

That Eric Sanders is just awesome with that shooting bra!
  Sun. 1/13/13 7:47pm Andrew Waterloo:

Was a guranteur for someone, and the collection agency came after me for some debt. This person claimed that she owed nothing and would give me the paper work to prove it. I ended up paying just to keep from getting dinged on my credit. It was a bit painful because it wasn't chump change and it basically set me back half a year.
  Sun. 1/13/13 7:48pm Nashville Noah:

It's the principal of the loan, your "friend" should honor that and pay it back. Maybe the next time they work for you, at the end when they expect the check just say "you just paid me back".....
  Sun. 1/13/13 7:48pm CB1:

Hey MO - take her on Judge Judy!
  Sun. 1/13/13 7:49pm Andrew Waterloo:

If I had one of those bras.. I'd get my money back!
  Sun. 1/13/13 7:52pm sweet cheri:

mo,i'd say hunt the freeloader down and demaand your cash back,, also if you don't mind me saying ,,i think the picture is kind of sexist,,

Comforting Words Dep't: As all us "burnees" weighing in must have heard, "hey, these people are good" (as in, at stealing) - and remember karma ain't no joke neither-
  Sun. 1/13/13 7:54pm gabrielle & Dean:

if this "friend" grew up in Cicero it could be Dean's sister...
Happy New Year , Gabrielle & Dean. keep up posted....

,,,i always think first can i afford to git by without the $?,cuz itz like gambling . Then if its for grocerys for the kids next meal maybe. Anything else NO!
  Sun. 1/13/13 7:57pm anon:

I worked for someone (aka Dictator Dickwad) who decided to change my rate at invoicing time.

Withheld payment for project A over discrepancy in project B. Week before xmas, rent not paid and fridge and cupboards bare.

No borrowing because this was bad enough without adding to it.
Avatar Sun. 1/13/13 7:58pm monica:

gabrielle & Dean - now it is a new year. if it was cicero, an arm would be broken...sweet cheri, thanks and thanks (the pic is merely campy but appreciate your view).... Thanks, Listener Schned - hear ya... G - exactly... Andrew - size 34 WOW...CB1 - YES!!!.... Nashville Noah - they ain't no next time now... PJ, agree - a scammer.....

  Sun. 1/13/13 8:01pm gabrielle & Dean:

if you need help from the family let me know...
  Sun. 1/13/13 8:02pm Roy Boy:

When I lived in San Diego, this guy showed up on my doorstep with a very convincing sob story about how he needed to get back to Brooklyn. He showed me a news clipping about his church and mentioned a neighborhood I had lived in, so I was sure he was telling the truth. But when I offered to buy him some food for the long Greyhound (hah!) ride he was going to take, he only bought a beer, and I slowly realized I'd been played. It would not be the last time. But bitter though I was, he clearly needed the $$ more than I did. Still, it sucks when you a trusting and get taken advantage of.

If it were Cicero you'd be swimming with the fishes
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/13/13 8:05pm annie:

see, that's the thing with money, you either have it or you ain't.... i'm always happy to hand some cash out if i have to, and will do all the best i can to NOT borrow.. or at least make a personal commitment to keep a list of the people to whom i owe money in case i ever get real work again..

Heard the actual Herb A. version the other day while getting coffee in a Mcdonalds. Must have been satellite radio.

Cicero in the house???

Ya want me and Elwood to handle that welsher for ya?
  Sun. 1/13/13 8:12pm deanland:

I like to think there's a big over-riding Karmic leveling of things. But I do not have the patience to wait. So I put it out of my mind. We can put a dollar value on getting stiffed, but it isn't always or limited just to money. I wish sometimes I had the Brooklyn equivalent of those Cicero, ahem, assistants.
  Sun. 1/13/13 8:16pm gabrielle & Dean:

yeah cicero is in da house. who wants to know?
  Sun. 1/13/13 8:17pm gabrielle & Dean:

Nah, I'm gettin' paroled again this month. It was all a misunderstanding, anyway. And I am willing to do good deeds to help out my karma, as long as the car holds up, fingers crossed. My karma's gonna run over that welsher's dogma but good.

today my 4 year old read the wfmu bumper sticker on my laptop (wufmoo?) until i helped him (WFMU) and then he asked me, "when i get older will we listen to W...F....M...U all day together?" it was like a proposal. because of shows like this, and because he is cute, i said, "yes!"
