I have this friend. (question that term). She "borrows" Lots of things. This is because she neverbrings forgets a lot of her things whenever she comes to my house. I hve lost count of the amount of tops, books, items of cutlery (yes cutlery) she must have now. My DD's wardrobe is bare.
I never get any of it back. Even when i ask there is an excuse. Or a "yep i'll just get it...." My DH has banned her from the house..
I hate to keep asking. What to do? Where can i find this backbone people talk of?
send your DH round......that is what I did when this happened to me!
well, I say that, happened once, her DD came to ours for tea, got wet<still unsure quite how tho>, borrowed an outfit from DD1 (brand new too, DD1 still has no idea how she managed to con her), then the mum kept saying for weeks "oh, tis in the wash, will bring it round once dry", and I swear the girl was wearing it.
DH went round, she claimed it was in the wash, so DH sat down at the table, asked for coffee and said he would wait......would only take a while surely if it was already in the machine....
it worked, we got it back, altho it was indeed slightly worn
same girl and mum did it to several 'friends' I found out later!!
