    I'm reluctant to lend anything anymore. I've bought the same book 3 times and a dvd twice because people borrow and don't return.
    You must be frustrated.
    I'd ask for everything but then write it off. Life's too short.

    I'm a cow. I don't borrow and I don't lend ever. It's one of the rules of being friends with me haha

    So RUDE lending something borrowed. Tell her to organise for it to be posted back and that its not your problem!

    The DVD is worth $40 and it was so hard for me to find a decent pregnancy yoga dvd at the time which is why I am worrying about this one item and not so much about the other 2. My 'friend' cannot collect from the girl she lent it to because the girl lives in my area whereas my friend has moved a fair way away (at least 6 hrs). I also feel a bit bad making the other girl post it since that poor girl probably doesn't even know that the dvd did not actually belong to my friend in the first place. I did send the girl with the dvd a message asking if she is going to be in town closer to me at all in the near future so I can meet her somewhere closer.

    I am just so frustrated with my 'friend'. It' just so slack. I certainly wont be lending to her ever again. She did a similar thing to my SIL who has just cut her losses and not bothering. I just don't get it.

    So rude! I have stopped lending out for this reason. Not getting stuff back or it coming back damaged.. I just cant get over how someone can do that!

    Ask for your other things back too. She must not have them which is why the delay imo

    Tell her to get the friend to post it to you as it's too inconvenient for you to drive all that way out of your way.
    I'd definitely be tempted to request the other stuff back as well.

    The friend who borrowed it from your friend is still responsible for returning the item to someone! So surely it's easier for her to return it to you, half an hour away, than your friend who is 6 hours away?

    I'de be annoyed, but I would probably let it (and the friendship) go. And never, ever lend her anything again!

    I'd actually collect the dvd out of principle.

    And I'd never ever lend her another thing.

    I'd probably start to avoid the friendship tbh as well. This sort of stuff sh1ts me majorly.
