Keeping Promise of Paying Back a Debt

He borrowed 100 bucks as he had lost his wallet.
He promised to return the money as soon as he received salary.
At first, he was still in contact with the creditor and the creditor still could accept it.
Slowly, he tried to drift away from the creditor.
After receiving salary, he did not immediately pay his debt back.

The creditor kept asking him. His answer was, “Next week.”
It happened times and again.
Feeling upset, the creditor called him and fixed the date and place to solving the debt.
He agreed. However, on the day itself, he tried to change the agreement.
The creditor then confronted him even though he and the creditor had been friend.

In the end, he paid his debt.
Yet, he lost the trust of his friend, the creditor.

Lesson learned: always keep promise and pay back any debt as soon as possible.
