    So I guess your question is when did the gentlemans agreement or a handshake go out the window?Why do we need contracts?Well people change with money.You say hey I will do this for 100 a time well your friend might be thinking about that beautiful girl walking by his window and he heard 50 dollars.So you plow charge him 100 he says ow no you said fifty.Then its your word against his.Now you are a scumbag and tryed to rip him off.Just stuff like that.Contracts keep everything business and you can still be friends.I always say if a friend wants to borrow money NO WAY if he really needs it to by his family food or something I GIVE them the money.I say it is a gift you don't have to pay it back but if you feel you need to pay it back ok.But I will never ask you for it.Friends and money deals with no contracts will soon follow by disaster.
