I am pretty annoyed right now. I lent some things to friend & co-worker when she was pregnant and I am now getting the run around. In addition to giving her a bunch of baby clothes, I lent her my yoga dvd, my fitball and a pregnancy book. I specified several times that I wanted them back when she was done with them. Fast forward a year and I am now pregnant again. I asked for the stuff back and she said she was busy and would text me when I could come over and collect. I went with that and waited. After a few weeks I was about to contact her again but discovered she had just gone into hospital so I held off, not wanting to pester a sick person.
Next thing I hear she has moved hours away! I gave up on the book and ball at that point resolving to buy new ones (which I have). I messaged her asking if she could send back my dvd and she tells me she lent it to a friend! So very rude!
Today I get another message saying she contacted said friend who has the dvd ready for me but as she has no license can I drive to her house which is about 1/2hr away from mine in a direction I never go to collect it!
So my friend lent it to someone without asking me before she even moved away which means she remembered she had it but still neglected to return it.
And now expects me to make a special trip to collect it forcing my toddler to spend an otherwise unnecessary hour in the car and using my petrol.
So now I am tempted to be difficult and ask for my other stuff back on principle or just tell her how I feel about all this. But another part of me just doesn't need the drama.
So what would you do? Do you find this rude and how would you handle it. She isn't a very close friend either.
And thanks for reading my vent.
