Lent friend a dress for an occasion this weekend, she uploaded photos on Instagram. Someone commented saying - love the dress, where’s it from?

She replied - thanks! I got it from x.

No you didn’t, I bought it from there hmm

Yes it’s petty and yes clearly this is the only thing I have to worry about but I think this was so cheeky.

Erm...it is a bit cheeky of her, but.....yabu to let it get to you. Maybe she's too embarrassed to admit she borrowed it instead of bought it.

Surely she was just letting the person know where they could buy one if they really liked it? No harm done.

She probably didn't want to admit she borrowed it publicly, I suspect you can understand that, so don't be a bitch.

Why would you give a shit OP? Seriously what a sad life you must live.

I understand that you'd be a bit grin but why is it cheeky of her? She hasn't gained anything.

Maybe 'it is from' rather than 'I got it from' would have been better. But yes, you're right. You are being a bit petty.

what bluntness said. She would be admitting she didn't pay a penny for a special occasion dress to everyone who knew her. She might feel embarrassed and its done you no harm.

She is embarrassed that she borrowed it for an occasion. Yes it might have been better to say "It is from X" but if she is close enough for you to lend it to her I would assume you are close enough to let it go.

Yep. It’s sad.

Unbelievably petty of you to think like that. Someone paid her a compliment and you’re annoyed that she accepted it rather than know her place and publicly bow and scrape to your amazing generosity?

Yes, cheeky of her, but don't let it bother you.... Let it go.....!!

I agree that it's probably something not worth stressing about, but I don't understand why anyone feels the need to tell OP she has a "sad life" - unnecessary and hurtful.

flowers for you OP. Try to take it as a compliment, the two of them must like your style!
