Though money makes the world go round, it can also lead to some uncomfortable situations. We all know that it's a bad idea to loan money to friends yet it's sometimes inevitable. For instance when one person purchases concert tickets for a group of friends, or when one person's credit card is charged for a shared hotel room — whatever the situation, there will come a time when you'll have to ask for what you're owed. And even when I know I'll get the money back, bringing up the conversation is always awkward for me. Am I alone on this one or does asking your friends for money that's owed make you feel uneasy, too?
