My brother has two cars, and one of them needs 4 new tyres. He asked me if he could borrow $1,000 (toyota hilux tyres cost a bomb) to get new tyres. I said no because that was all my savings and it's going towards a new car, and asked him why he can't use his other car until he saves the money for new tyres. He said he didn't want to do that because his gf uses that car. She doesn't even have a job and it has been sitting in the garage gathering dust. My mum said she is disappointed in me and now I feel like the worst person in the world. It takes me so long to save and I just made my first $1,000. I don't know how to feel.
What would you have done?
