the responsible thing would be to buy a case of beer with it, then invite the friend over to drink it with you... When the 30rack is gone, tell him where the money came from.

Refunded it.


Later you make your friend buy you a case of beer because you were nice enough to refund him earlier.

You withdrew it, then used it to wine & dine with is girlfriend while he was at work getting ragged on by the other friend for not sending the money. You old bird-dog.

You did the right thing and refunded the money. That is what a good friend would do. That is what I would have done. I don't want what isn't rightfully mine.
