10 days ago I rescued one of their cats from drowning in my pond.
I wrapped her up in an old beach towel and took her back round to their house, the husband (the wife was ill in bed with flu) opened the door and thanked me greatly for rescuing the cat.
I have heard nothing since.
AIBU to expect my towel back before now?
(Some background - the husband works away, so she is left on her own all week with 4 children, we are on a busy main road and can't see each other drives and front doors because of the way our front gardens are constructed, therefore don't really cross paths much.)
I would have brought your towel back washed, dried and fluffed up -complete with wine & chocs if you'd done that for my cat...
However, some people don't think anything of towels etc so possibly haven't even given it another thought - or it's been put in the linen cupboard - NDH assumes she's taken it back and she has no idea where this odd towel has come from!.
I fully intend to take the clean towel back with chocolates, but am worried that too much time has passed and she's possibly judging me at the moment. I just wanted to see how the wise MNer's perceived my lack of urgency.
