I used to lend stuff but I got rather tired of not getting it back or of having to ask for it. Nowadays I only "lend" something I won't mind not getting back (so usually books I know I don't want to read again).
Hello StLukes, I just want to say that I was flabbergasted while reading your post. I am not an angry person but personal boundaries are quite important to me and although I am not materialistic I am quite protective of my belongings. I found myself thinking "How dare he?" and really felt angry. I'm sorry you find yourself in this situation; I just hope the CDs were returned undamaged...No. I'll make copies for a few friends but that's about as far as it goes. I have one studio mate who has the habit of assuming he can "borrow" anything he likes without asking. He has " borrowed" my paper, scissors, canvases, hammers, etc... He even took one of my prints, cut it up, and collaged it into one of his own paintings! Rather recently I left a number of CDs in the studio thinking I'd be back the next day. When I got back the next weekend, he had taken 6 of them and put them in his car. He refused to return them suggesting that I had so many CDs I'd never miss them. A week later our studio insurance came due and he paid it then asking me to pay him my share of the bill. I told him that I'd write a check when the CDs were returned. It took him three weeks, but eventually they showed up in my studio. I'm now certain to take all my music home with me.
