Ever wagered money but lost something else instead?

Featured Comment

who here has lost more than money to gambling im wondering ?
even though money was wagered, it was not the thing won or lost in the end...
also how early was your first gambling experience?
did the adults know this was going on?
__________________________
I wont go into too much detail but... i was very young, maybe 13 at the time 4th or 5th grade I was in. I remember... 
me and my best friend had kind of started making bets with eachother, small ones a few cents here and there, but enough to lets say buy a coke-a-cola or two... and maybe at most we got to one owing the other 3 or 5 glasses of coke...

we would do this by throwing darts and knives at a board we set up in a back room at school, but the last final one was at my house in my room... 

what happened was... i had lost about 30 dollars worth ( which was like a months allowance at the time, a lot of money for a kid etc... and i was panicking and so upset at myself not knowing what i was gonna do etc etc... and we were goofing around joking around as well... but something happened and it took went the total other way around and i started winning, and won about 40 or so dollars... 

and when we were all done, my friend had thought we were joking around, where as i thought we were serious and intended to pay him if i had lost... when i told him or asked him so when are you going to pay the money, he really got upset and hurt at me insisting that he pay me, his best friend,  and essentially he  got very hurt at the thought that i would actually take the money from him let alone ask him for it etc etc... he just left my house, and i realized i kinda had fucked up as well , i called him many times, he picked up  while on the bus home and said he couldnt talk.... after that, things never were the same again... i did not take the money in the end even though he tried to pay me... but it was too late and damage to our friendship was already done.

to be fair, there was a cultural difference  and i was just in 4th grade =o 
i did not understand, being in a quasi foreign country what friendship meant really for the people there and etc..

long story short... i have still yet to talk to hiim one day about the whole thing and apologize as well as talk about the whole thing, as it was a great loss, my best friend at the time..
we are both in different countries now, so i haven't had a chance to talk privately in person, but i have over the years bumped into him (2012 i think i saw him on the street while visiting there) but we were driving and he was in his car and i was in mine.. we did not want to hold traffic up so spoke a few minutes and went on..

one day im sure i will see hiim again and will talk to him about the above, how unfortunate it was  that we let something like that come between us.

*sighs* i hadnt rehashed this one in a while  i guess nor i think really told anyone about it.

more on thread topic/section
so have you ever wagered money at first but lost more than that or something instead of that?
like maybe you lost a lot of money but a deal was made, like ill take your car instead... or let me sleep with your girl and we call it even.... lo l jk but im sure that happens.... weird,

to mods: instead of making 2 topics one in story section and one in gambling discussion section i kind of merged them into  one, as they are related. the one woudl have been sections above and below the ___ lines , and the other would have been the middle section in stories, (other top part would have gone in discussion)  this way less clutter i think and related topics merged.

thanks!

Because of the money, I also lost many friends who did not consider it necessary to repay the debt. Now I keep money in the bank. It is better to keep your funds in a deposit account in a bank and you will not be able to withdraw them during the year. But after the expiration of the term, you will have not yet bad profit.

besides cash .. i lost my mind lol,, everything change when i first started gambling.. it can be an innocent bet of anything.. is still gambling when you get that win.. instead of cash it could be a toy  any item that someone is interested in.. betting that to another greater or equal to item.. man did i get so many heman transformers when i was young,, especially pogs.. who ever remember or played pogs in the US.. that was a form of gambling. you buy your pogs slammers and play against other people..might sound stupid but its true.. those pogs wasnt cheap.. you stack pogs.. hit it with the slammer what ever flips right side up you win. there were pogs  that worth more then others,,, I even went to a tourney at Knottss Berry Farm.. that was when i was in elementary school... lol that was my first taste of gambling..

ya my sanity,  i regularly get sent on these triathlon losing 4 months was the longest and it starts to wear on you , and the longer it gets the harder it is to stay positive, then once your in the negative Nancy trap getting out is even harder. only thing i find to combat that is to walk away take a break.

I would say that I can't really think of a time where I have lost more than I wagered. I suppose I lost time, and a good night. Because losing can really destroy the mood and atmosphere at my casino, and winning just makes it so much funner.

Who doesn't want to have money? In this modern civilization, money does have an important role in everyday life. In fact, money can be the most logical motive used to move people.

Yes, so rich people who have a lot of money can certainly make you happy. You can buy items that you like without needing a lot of previous calculations. But who still believes that money can afford everything? Hopefully nothing, because in this world there are things that are very valuable, which are priceless and cannot be bought with how much money you have.

like losing friends. Trust is an important value that humans have in establishing a relationship. Maintaining trust is a crucial responsibility, because without that we will be sneered by others.

Trust is hard to get, and if it's broken, it's even harder to get it back. Money cannot buy back damaged trust, you can only get it through an effort to improve yourself very long.

Lost money in gambling other than money? Not me.

If anything, I gained other things OTHER THAN money. Haha

I love betting in games with my friends, playing online as past time, meeting new people, etc.

Honestly, sometimes it depends on the person and how well you know each other. Not talking to you after that is kiddie thinking and I'm pretty sure that if he matured already today, you guys can be friends again,

Yup gambling can definitely bring dire consequences in so many areas of life if not managed carefully. Mostly the main cause of it is the addiction of gambling that is causing the most damages.

I once won 400$ when I was young.  It was worst thing happen my life.  In thought I could control my luck. Then I started gambling on a regular basis. Now is been 10 years I probably spent over 250k$. I won several times in past 6 months over 10k$ never cashed out except once.  And it only made my gambling problem worse. I lost my fund for my commercial and more money I got from friends try to save my business.
