How To Handle 5 Awkward Money Situations

If you like our content, make sure to subscribe to our channel! 

Whether it’s friends not paying you back or family asking you for a loan, we all have experienced some sort of awkward money situation. ACCC has some advice on how to handle 5 awkward money situations:

1. You haven’t been paid back

It is important to remind friends or colleagues to repay you, whether with cash or through Venmo. Of course, if they can’t afford it now, you can give them more time.

2. Pressure to donate to a charity

Around the holidays, there is often pressure to donate to a charity, and it can be awkward if you can’t afford it. It’s okay to decline for now and say you’d like further information and will think about donating in the future.

3. Managing increasingly expensive activities

Speak up in the beginning stages of planning if you don’t think you can afford to attend a group activity or event your friends are organizing.

4. The costly bridal party

The costs of being in a bridal party can add up quickly. If you know you will be in a friend’s bridal party, start saving once they get engaged. Otherwise, be upfront with them about your financial situation as soon as possible.

5. Questions about salary

A coworker asking how much money you make can be extremely uncomfortable. You can handle the situation in a variety of ways, whether through humor or being upfront and simply saying you would rather not share that information.

Experiencing money & budgeting troubles? ACCC’s counselors can help.
