asking for money back without being cheeky
One of my friends owes my mum a fiver for her ticket to my dance show at easter. I've been asking for the money off all my friends for well over 2 months, all but 1 got me the money on time to buy the tickets (£5.75 each). One still hasn't paid (thats why my mum ended up paying as she used her card to make it easier). It's been about 7 or 8 weeks since the tickets were bought....she gets £50 a month pocket money so i asked her the other day if she could pay it back soon because she show is just over 2 weeks away. She said 'i hope so' then this weekend went on a massive shopping spree and spent the money. This probably sounds pathetic but i'm a bit annoyed...its only a fiver and theres been loads of time to pay for it....how can i ask again without sounding funny?
