    Red face Borrowed???


    Can you please tell me if the word "borrowed" in either of the following sentences are correct?

    1. When I borrowed you the money, it was understood that you'd pay me back in a week.

    2. When I borrowed the money to you, it was understood that you'd pay me back in a week.

    Default Re: Borrowed???

    They are both incorrect.

    The giver loans something.

    The receiver borrows something.

    When I loaned you the money...
    When I loaned the money to you...
    When you borrowed the money (from me)...
