So I let an acquaintance borrow one of the slings from my embarrassingly large collection a while ago. Made it clear that I’d be wanting it back.
Fast forward a few months and I’m expecting another baby, so will be needing it. It one of the few on the market with a lower weight limit for tiny babies (suitable from 5lbs) and I make small babies, which is why it’s this specific sling I’ll be wanting for my new baby.
Asked the other day about getting it back, and she said “oh it’s I’ve packed it away somewhere but will look.”
Mentioned it to another friend who also knows her and said she’s pretty sure that it was being advertised on a Facebook selling site a while back hmm
AIBU to call her out on it, and expect either my sling back or the money to replace it?!
Who does that? Borrows something from a friend and then flogs it on the sly?!! angry

Keep on about it and ask her to replace it if she hasn't got it. Cheeky thing!

I think I'd say "I'm not sure why you packed it away when you knew it was a loan. I want to get all my things sorted now, so can you let me have it asap?"

Why are you even asking if YABU of course your not, how bloody cheeky that would boil my piss

Ask again and again and again.

If she says she 'cannot find it' say she needs to replace it. angrywink

I would say I saw it advertised on FB and I bloody well want it back 😂

Keep reminding her that you need it. You told her it was a loan so she needs to give it back, or a new one if she's sold it.

Have a look back on the F.B site, it should be there.

I would ask again and then say a mutual friend was sure one the same was for sale on Facebook so could she buy that for you instead /give you the money to buy it and you can track the seller down

Show her your screen shot .

That is awful sad

Omg these threads really wind me up. Yes she is a CF. If she keeps saying that it hasn't turned up then mention that your friend saw it advertised on fb and see what reaction you get to that.

What a dick! She obviously needs to buy you a new one.

IveGotAlpen Fri 22-Mar-19 19:47:56

Show her the screen shot saying ' I found it for you'

Buy it under a false name, arrange collection, then watch her squirm when you turn up at the door!

ChrisPrattsFace Fri 22-Mar-19 19:49:21

Send her the screen shot and say ‘I hope this isn’t mine, I really need it back’

Press the 'Ask for details' on the advert.

MyBreadIsEggy Fri 22-Mar-19 19:49:44

MyBreadIsEggy Fri 22-Mar-19 19:50:54

Biscuit I know!! I got it in a sale at £40! And that was with a fair chunk knocked off it!
