#563 – Borrow

I always found it funny when someone would ask to borrow something that could not be returned in the same state. “Hey, my drink is getting warm. Can I borrow some ice?” “Hey man, I have an empty roll in this stall, can I borrow some toilet paper?”

    I always say, “No, I don’t want it back after you’re done with it. But you can HAVE some.”

    One of my pet peeves is when people say “I rented these books from the library.” NO YOU DIDN’T. You borrowed them. The library lent them to you. Not the same.

      Never heard that one. Maybe it’s regional?

        Maybe. Or maybe I run in a less intelligent circle than you do. Also, I work at a bookstore.

          considering that I have a bad habit of returning books late, and end up paying a late fee? I’ll call that renting 😉

    Never expect to get back whatever it is you loaned out. Life is easier that way.

    I run the other way if someone wants to “Borrow” one of my kidneys.
