Hi mylotters, I have a dilemma. 3 weeks a go I borrowed my car to my brother in law because his one was hit by street racer. I absolute needed it to go to work. And because i was going to work with public transportation, i said okey. it was only for a week. Last week I gave him a call and asked him about my car. His answer was: You do not need a car. So stop naging... I was pissed and told him that I had to borrow a friends car in the weekend because i needed to bring a newly bought furnoture to my house. And then he was pissed and made it a proud problem. So he dropped the car at my inlaws place and I needed to pick it up there. Like 60Km from my house. He is not talking to me, because of this. Somehow it disturbs me a bit. I'm asking myself, shall i start talking to him or wait till he sees his mistake and appologise to me. What do you think?

i guess i dont understand his problem you let him use your car that was very kind of you.when you needed it back he made a big deal out of it.he should have been thankful for the use of your car instead he did not have the curtisey to even bring it back to you.this is rude no he needs to tell you hes sorry and thank you for leting him use this car.

Your brother-in-law seemed to think you owed him the car and seemed to forget you were only doing a good deed, letting him use it for a week. I think he did wrong by not bringing it back to you when you asked him to. Just leaving at your inlaws shows how immature he really is. I think I'd just let it ride and not worry about it. There might come another time when he will want to use your car and you can decline.

Well first of, what's your spouse think about it? Do you guys get together at family gatherings alot? Remember he's your spouses brother not yours. I'd say talk to your spouse before you do, or say anything. You don't wanna have issues with your spouse because of this. Tell your spouse your ideas that you think maybe you should just come clean and just have a talk with their brother. Don't get all racey, remember your just having a talk with your brother in law not an arguement, that's just gonna make it worse for you if you argue with him. If he still acts like a dingdong. Just ok well I just wanted to let you know what my issue was, thanks for being so understanding or not, and have a greate one. After all it is your car, and what if he wrecked it or something, think about it is he going to pay for the damages? Well good luck!..
