I was chatting to my eldest DGD’s on the way to school this morning and they were talking about the younger girl lending someone at school her calculator who had then claimed to have lost it . (We had a late night rush to Asda last night to replace it as she has a maths assessment today) . The older girl said “you will learn never to lend anything important to anyone”.
It got me thinking about things I have loaned out in the past never to see again and other things that people almost think of as their own and you have to almost beg for it back. Like for example we have/had a VAX carpet shampoo machine that my sister has taken claim over, even having the cheek to lend it out to her boyfriend who has then lent it out again without even asking .
Then it’s things like some folding garden chairs , bye bye, a portable heater, bye bye and crikey knows what else.
What have you loaned out and never had returned ?
It's exhausting when she visits - AIBU or is it just me?
Couldn't organise anything - Boris needs to go
