Joey, I saw a little joke the other day:
1st guy: My wife ran off with my best friend James last Tuesday.
2nd guy: Since when is James your best friend?
1st guy: Since last Tuesday.

Yep, just like the best way to get rid of a pesky person, loan them some money and ask when they are going to pay you back, you'll never see them again.
