If you borrow something from someone, here are the 5 golden rules to keep in mind…
- For starters, return the item that you borrowed (in a timely fashion).
- Make sure the item borrowed is in its original condition. Otherwise, replace it!
- If you lose the item, replace it!
- Give it back directly to the lender, not to a chain of delivery surrogates.
- If you cannot follow #1-4, don’t be surprised when the person won’t let you borrow anything in the future.
