I have a neighbour whose wife is a big pain. NOot a day goes by when sh edoes not come to borrow some thing or the other. If we have a thing, she thinks it is better to borrow it than to buy it. She feels why buy a thing which can be borrowed. She thinks what we own is meant for her to share. My wife says "tomorrow she will come and say I wan t to borrow your husband. " Do you have such painful neighbours? How do you tackle them?

"i want to borrow your husband". Well, will your wife let your neighbor borrow? Anyways, yeah, there are neighbors and friends like that everywhere. We have a neighbor here who won't even bother to let us know she borrowed the "patio" chair since it's just lying outside the house. We're not even exactly friends. I don't know either, but there will just be personal properties that I will refuse to lend, and I will try to say so in the most tactful and civil manner.

Quite funny! But you do come across such neighbours. Problem is that we we oblige neighbours due to different reasons. Firstly, we may need some help sometimes and unless we do we cannot expect reciprocation. Secondly, we feel that we should keep them in good humour because we have to meet them time and again, may be many times daily. Unfortunately, we cannot choose our neighbours and we have to learn to live with them. But beware borrowing husband is a difficult preposition.

OMG That has to be dreadful! I can't imagine my neighbor constantly borrowing things without me eventually letting her know that I don't like lending things. What type of things would you borrow from your neighbor?
