Talking Dictionary72. Can I Borrow Rent Money?


72. He was out of money and out of work. He needed money for food and rent. Where could he turn? No bank would lend him money. No relatives could lend him money.

She said, "Don't call me honey. I'm not your honey. And I'm not here to help you, moneywise or otherwise. A few years ago, I was. But you dumped me. You didn't need me then.
