Dear Pay Dirt,

I am blessed to be one of four friends who have been close since elementary school. All but one of us are happily married with multiple children and doing well financially, but not wealthy. This one, “Penny,” has expenses that consistently exceed her income, at over $10,000 a year. And every time she needs money, the three of us have a huge argument, among ourselves and with our husbands, over whose turn it is to help her.
