I needed that!

"What?" you might ask An hour of Rod Stewart! He was, is and always will be just smashing! I have wanted other things in the past too, even when I didn't have them, and fortunately I have friends who lent things to me. I then returned them of course. Well... not always There was that time that... when I had finished using what they lent me, I couldn't possibly have returned those items as they were not in the same condition as when I received them I did eventually end up replacing them with brand new items but... I used those too before I got round to returning them Then I forgot about them for a long time and had no contact with my friend during that time either. Recently we met up again and I was reminded that I still have not returned them The problem is that now... they are rusty! There is only one thing I want to do now... and Rod knows.... I don't want to talk about it Do you always return everything that you borrow? In the same condition that it was when you received it? Would you replace it if it broke while you were using it? Or maybe give the equivalent amount in cash so that your friend could choose something similar?

@mysdianait My daughter used to borrow my clothes when she was in her teens. I didn't mind if she asked but she mainly helped herself. I had a lovely skirt with denim at the top and long white pleats. She cut half the pleats off and wore it. I was so cross at the time. I used to be mad about buying clothes so I think she thought I wouldn't notice.

Oh yes, I started reading this and then was not able to return here. When I browsed through your discussions looking for it, I overlooked this one. I do return things, and I try to return them in the same condition as when I borrowed them. I am still waiting for certain people to return some things, though, as they have not been replaced yet ... or maybe they were and have since been borrowed by another friend.

@mysdianait I would hope that they would take better care of them, so they didn't get rusty. However, in the case where they were rusty, I would prefer new ones. I would not want to choose my own, though, because that would involve shopping, and I normally do not like shopping.
@purplealabaster Not even online shopping? You could do that from the comfort and privacy of your own home and then let the person concerned know your choiuces and they could order them and have them delivered to your door. If they had been unused for along time, mybe due to that person being in ill-health, then they could indeed have become rusty through no fault of the person who borrowed them

@mysdianait I am reminded of a principle in a book I read many moons ago, The Practice Effect. I must dig it out and have a read through it again. Things got better the more you used them, unlike here where things weaken and fatigue through repeated use.

Many times I have lent objects, then, with the passage of time, at the end, not even I took them back. The "stuff" that I like (electronics, informatics), "ages" very fast, therefore once (when I could afford it) I replaced with new material. And yes, I know what do you think, I'm not very smart, and you also have right!
I don't borrow. I lent. When I lent I already am in the mindset that it is as good as gone. Though they came back and some didn;t, I didn't regret lenting. Except that one time I lent something of personal nature to a friend. It never came back. It didn;t have anything incriminating in that BUT it had taken me years to compile things in that diary. The hard work of those years lost bothered me more than the diary.
