Do you let people borrow them?

I have to watch who borrows my dvd's because some people won't give me them back. What happens is I forget which ones they borrowed. Or I don't see them often enough and I forget. I know some of the people would give me them back so I have no problem letting them borrow them. What about you, do you let people borrow them? why or why not?

I am glad that I am not the only one with the same problem, I thought i was being silly. My cousin actually borrowed three of my dvds. But she has always gave them back to me so I am not worried. I just need to remember which ones they were, I wrote them down just in case.

As a rule, I'll only let people I trust borrow my dvds, people whom I know will return them. Otherwise, I won't lend them to people I don't trust.

Very rarely I will let someone borrow a DVD, but every single one of my DVD's is scratch free (I'm very OCD), I will do a thorough examination of the back of a disc before giving it to someone else, and if they give it back with even ONE scratch on it, I expect a replacement. Regardless of whether the DVD is still functional, I still want a replacement. When I loan something out, I expect it to be taken care of properly, and it's not hard at all to keep DVDs scratch free.

There's only really two people I can trust to lend DVDs to. Although in the past I had lent DVDs to other people, and was screwed over. One time I let a friend of mine borrow a season set of a tv show which was in perfect condition (after being lent to the two friends mentioned above. He then lent it to a mutal friend of ours (but without asking me if he could do so), and when I got it back, I couldn't get 10 minutes into the pilot episode without it skipping/freezing. That was the last time I ever let him borrow anything again.

we use to lend dvd's out but like you we would forget. so now we are really picky on who we lend our dvd's out to. and we have a sign out sheet. Yes a signout sheet, you write your name and what day you borrowed the dvd's and what dvd's you borrowed.
