    always borrows/is always borrowing-verb tense

    A: Do you know Jane?
    B: Of course I know her. She “always borrows/is always borrowing” money from me but “never remembers/remembering” to pay me back.
    -In the "", which should I choose? Or, either one? What's the difference of them?

    I would use "always borrows" and "never remembers".

    Is always borrowing/never remembers also works for me.
