Default Well I did a thing, I'm not sure about

Buddy wants to repair/replace Commercial Tues on the side.
I fronted him $2k to get started. It's taken me 2 years to save this much. It was my nest egg. I had plans for it. Mainly to get my pickup in fighting shape.

He has no contacts in our area. Hoping it wouldn't go through but it did.
I'm nervous. Trying hard not to drive the ship from the back seat. I can see some issues coming up. Having 14th thoughts about this.

Anyways. Any recommendations on how to break it to the wife..

No advise on telling wife about the financial infidelity, hopefully it all works out

Investing in someone else side gig!? Good luck man hopefully he'll get things rolling and you won't be in the dog house too bad. Don't know your wife so I have no clue the appropriate approach, good luck!

If 2k was your next egg you shouldn't have done it. Only thing you can do is tell her you screwed up.

2K would not change our world but I wouldn't give a buddy 2k without talking to my wife.

Did your wife know you had a nest egg? If not why bother bringing it up to her, just pay your buddy a visit and ask for your money back. Or as mentioned by GA call it a bad investment and move on.

I'm not one to tell a man what to do with his money but since you put it out there. If it has taken you 2 years to save $2k, then "investing" in a buddy's side business probably isn't the wisest decision. Here is the thing about start ups or side businesses. Don't ever put money into it that you can't afford to lose. Also, most start out with not enough capitol to keep things going. Not sure what all goes into this type of business but $2k can get eaten up real quick in any kind of business.
Good luck in your venture and yes, I would tell the wife about it if she knows about the $2k.

Was this an investment or did you just give him 2k to get started and him pay you back 2k once he has it?

You believed in your friend enough to give him the money. Don’t give up on him now. If he’s still trying to make it work, then just give him encouragement. That’s free.

Just tell her what you did. She will/should be miffed. Tell her if it doesn't work out then you vow to sell the truck as compared to getting it into fighting shape. Truck fights are boring as hail anyways. :-). Good luck. Hope it works out.

I keep thinking commercial toilets, idk why but that's my guess. Your buddy repairs commercial toilets! Might want to start selling some thermal hunts to recover that 2k

I think the reality of your decision just smacked you upside the head.... Too late now to be anything other that supportive to your buddy. If he had the 2K in the first place he wouldn't have asked you for the money.

As far as the wife.... I would keep my mouth shut until you have to tell her where it is, or why you lost it.
