Have you ever lent or borrowed money? Yes. I rent money to my friend, but he didn't give back my money.

I think title is wrong. Also,some people deceived an old man, so he will be unhappy if he is rich.

This is a sad story. I can't understand how these people could treat an old man like this. In fact, I think Mr Sherth who finally gave the old man 10 dollars has cheated or tricked him. I felt sick! Educated should help others. I almost tore down while Adam counting his money in the envelope.
