gambling... i let him borrow 200 like a month ago thinking hed pay me... and a few weeks ago he said hell pay me 400 end of the year if i waited till then.. now hes offering me his lap top


kid sucks at poker.. he borrows money from people all the time thinking hell win big but always loses..

Sounds like he could use a beating. An anonymous tip to his parents may help him as well.......after you've sold the laptop of course. I'm not too informed on market values of laptops, but a stop by any of the box-maker sites might help. Build your own laptop with whatever the features are and see where it comes out. You should get a spec list from this kid before you take the laptop so you'll know if its worth anything.

What kind of kids have that kind of money to throw around? :-?

I would take the laptop, since, obviously, you're not going to get anything else from him. Then I would beat the crap out of yourself for associating with him in the first place and never do it again.

Are you telling me that you and another guy are going to jump this kid? Weak man, very weak. 2 on 1 isn't cool.

Never, ever give money to someone to gamble unless it's a friendly $5 neighborhood poker game.

Rule #1 is "Never bet what you can't afford to lose."

I'd say its irrelevant if its 2 on 1 or 10 on 1. Being a deadbeat entails a certain cost of doing business, whether its the repo man or punch in the face. I would say though, that the beating should only be administered by those who are still owed. If the laptop is accepted, the beating has to be done by someone else.

Find out what kind of laptop it is, then search on ebay under "completed auctions" and see roughly what they have been going for.

If the kid gives up the laptop and it covers your 400 then you're done and to jump him would be out of line.

If the other guys who he is still into for money want to beat on him then they have the right. But you and him are square and you should stay out of it.
