Hard Choices

No one likes hard choices. No one likes hard choices that involve people who have been friends. I am no different.

This past week, I made a decision that evoked some of the strongest emotions I have had in 20 years. A friend had need for his apartment for something to reduce his heating costs. I had a very nice pellet stove that I agreed to leave with him with the agreement he purchase it for half the price I paid. $1,500.

A year later he and his wife have not paid despite emails, texts and letters. I called an attorney and sent out papers. I have to tell you this is one of the hardest decisions of the last 10 years. My hope is that he and his wife will see through to either paying or returning it.

Am I the only one who feels this “badly” about this kind of thing?
