Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Debt Collection

No, this isn't a thread about irresponsible credit card irresponsibly; the debt is owed to me.

I am a senior in my major and over the summer I met a guy who was going to be a junior. Since I've taken all the classes he has, I sold him a book at the beginning of the year. We were having a hard time meeting up because of crazy start of school year stuff, and I spotted him in the hallway and gave him the book first chance.

He didn't have the money on him at the moment, but I wanted to get rid of the book. I knew I'd see him down in the computer lab frequently, and this is true. It is week 5 of class now, and I still don't have my money. I have approached him several times, usually once a week, and in every case he is nice, apologizes for not having the money on him, tells me of his plans to take out the money and give it to me.

Except this has been going on for 5 weeks! And I sold him the book for just $40, which is like 70% off! Is there something I can do/say to make sure I get paid before Jesus Fucking Christ returns to Earth? I have a video game addiction to feed.

    I'd just tell him he has a week to either pay the money or return the book and buy it at full price from the university store. Unless he's functionally retarded that will give him the idea that he may indeed save money by not fucking you over.

    Talking to us does not solve the problem, talk to him.

    Say, "Fantastic, lets go get the money now."

    Is there an ATM on campus? If he says he doesn't have the money, remind him there's an ATM just down the hall.
