"Hey, how have you been?"

"Good. How about you?"

When old friends meet after a long time apart, it makes for uninteresting dialogue. Such encounters usually include pattings on the shoulder, references to old acquaintances, and plenty of raised eyebrows. We will spare you the details.

Back in college, Frank and Ben were called "Frank and Bank." They were also called "Tweedledee and Tweedleedum."

Being friends, they naturally hung out with each other, were always ready to help each other, and if they could have admitted it to themselves, cared about each other. But at the same time they had a kind of sibling rivalry. Each wanted to be better, stronger, and smarter than the other. Frank was first in most things, but occasionally Ben was.

So it was natural that Frank got married first. Not much later, his wife gave birth to a daughter, and his wife and his daughter would often spend the weekend together doing mother-daughter stuff. Ben, however, was a still a bachelor and his weekends were free.

"Do you remember how we used to go fishing?" asked Frank.

"Of course, I remember," answered Ben. "And I also remember that I always caught more fish than you."

"It’s time for a rematch then," Frank said.

Frank was only half-serious, but Ben didn’t notice.

"What do you mean?" Ben asked.

"Well, how about we go fishing this weekend?" Frank suggested.

"But, you see..." Ben began, but Frank interrupted him.

"You said you were free."

“I am,” said Ben.

"So let’s go fishing. Like in the good old days."

Ben couldn’t find an adequate answer.

"So let’s do it,” Frank said. “Do you have a fishing rod?"

“Of course, I do,” Ben answered, but then he immediately remembered that he didn’t.

"Great. And a good chair?"

"Of course."

Ben answered all of Frank's questions in the affirmative, although he didn’t have half the things Frank asked him about. He’d wanted to buy fishing equipment for a long time, but he’d never gotten around to it.

"So it’s agreed then? We’re going to go fishing?" Frank asked.

"Of course. Yeah. Of course, we’re going," said Ben, absentmindedly.

“Oh, by the way,” Frank said. "Do you know what short-term loans are? Somebody told me about them recently. They’re pretty useful. There’s a good company I could recommend.”

“What’s the company?” Ben asked, realizing that fishing without a fishing rod was a difficult endeavor and understanding that a short term loan would be helpful in such a situation.

Frank told him the name of the company and Ben made a mental note to himself. When he got home, he went to completed the application form, and got the money to buy the fishing equipment.

Unfortunately, it rained that Saturday and the rain continued until Monday. Thus, the old friends did not go fishing. But Ben still enjoyed looking at his fishing rod and imagining how, in the not-too-distant future, he would catch more fish than Frank.

“Fast Food” Online Payday Loans: Is It Really That Simple?

06 November 2018 1252 Views

Payday loans are an ordinary part of life for many Americans in many states. Due to their popularity they have become a kind of fast food for some people. Meanwhile, other people, who have never taken out short-term online loans but have seen their relatives and friends do so, may wonder:

• Why don’t people save money instead of taking out loans?

• Isn’t it easier to wait for pay day?

• Why do they trust online companies instead of banks?

• Isn’t it easier to deal with a bank?

Let’s delve into the reasons people choose to borrow online so that we can persuade any unbelievers out there.

Payday Loan vs. Saving

Have you ever randomly decided to spend money on some party, road trip, or concert tickets? Sometimes you find a great deal for something you’ve been wanting to buy and you finally have the opportunity to get it - but the catch is you have to buy it while the deal lasts. Ask yourself: are there any services or goods you’ve been wanting for a long time and which you know will bring you joy, inspiration, or benefit in the future? Do you really want to keep putting aside money day after day when you have the chance to buy it – right now – and you can pay back the money in a week or two? Don’t let opportunities pass you by.

By taking out rapid loans, you can actually save money in the long term.

Payday Loan vs. Waiting for Pay Day

In addition to the fun reasons to take out online quick loans, there are other situations that are not fun and definitely cannot be postponed. These usually involve:

• Health - when you need to stay at home and rest and you know you won’t be paid for the days you miss (and it’s awkward to ask friends for money)

• Accidents - when you need to immediately visit your parents or your friends and they live far away

• Periodic wastefulness - when you spend all your salary on something and need to hold out until pay day without borrowing from friends or family

That’s why it is not always better to wait. Modern life can be unpredictable.

Online Loan Companies vs. Banks

Most of the popular modern online loan companies are as trustworthy as banks. The big difference is that with online loan companies, you don’t have to:

• Fill out paperwork

• Endure boring conversations with bank representatives

…or wait.

It takes an hour at most to get the money you need - and sometimes it takes even less.

Even if you already have a credit card, it usually takes time to increase the credit limit. And what if you need money on a Sunday or a holiday or in the middle of the night?

Online companies lend money 24/7, so you can always be sure the rapid loan will really be rapid.

The Seashore

01 November 2018 665 Views

Everybody has a dream. The dream may be big or small. The dreamer may be aware or unaware of his dream. But the main thing is that every person has a dream.

Andrew was a modest man, without much ambition, and not very confident. In fact, it’s a bit surprising that one day he mustered up the courage to talk to a young woman called Molly. Even more surprisingly, Molly gave him her number and even agreed to go on a date. And after the first date, she went on a second, and after the second, etc., etc.

Molly was decisive. If she thought that something had to be done, she did it. If she thought that something had to be obtained, she got it. But for some reason, Molly was bold in everything except when it came to Andrew. She would gently hint that Andrew should be a go-getter like her. Then Andrew would gently object and list a number of reasons why he couldn’t do such-and-such until later. Molly would drop the topic and that’s how they discussed things.

One night, they were watching a movie about a tragic, all-consuming love. The plot didn’t interest Andrew, but the setting did; it took place on the coast. When the end credits started rolling, Molly sighed heavily, probably feeling bad for the heroine of the movie. Andrew sighed too, for a different reason.

"Why are YOU sighing?" Molly asked.

“It doesn't matter,” Andrew answered.

“No, it does matter,” said Molly. "Tell me. Why did you sigh? Do you feel sorry for her?"

"Who is ‘her’?”

"The main actress."


"Well, do you think he acted right?"

"Who do you mean by ‘he’?”

"The main actor."

"Oh. No, it doesn't matter. They have their lives. I have mine."

"Then why did you sigh?”

"You really want to know?”

"Of course!"

"I’ve never been to the ocean."


Molly was at a loss for words – a rare situation indeed.

"Yeah. I’ve never walked along the beach."

"But it’s only…it’s not even that far away…” Molly managed to say.

"I know. It’s close. But still," Andrew said.

“Well, we’ll go to the seashore this weekend,” Molly decided.

"But it’ll cost a lot and I don’t have time to raise money for the trip," Andrew began making excuses.

“Well, I’m a big girl,” Molly said. "I can pay for myself.”

"But what about me?" Andrew asked.

“Follow my lead,” Molly said and she showed him what to do.

Andrew did as she commanded. He went to completed the application form, and got the money.

The weekend was great. They had a lot of fun, did lots of swimming, and made a sandcastle.

You should visit the ocean too.
