Visitor to house says “I’m borrowing this DVD and this book.”
And my response is “I’m sorry, but I don’t loan out books or DVDs.”
“If you were a true friend you’d let me borrow these.” said the visitor.
“If you were a true friend I would no doubt see you more than twice in five years. And the answer is still no.”
At which point the visitor, not taking rejection well, got up and went to leave, trying to convince the other four people at the gaming night to go with him.
That didn’t work out.
Though it did make it awkward.
I suspect it will be five more years before I see him again.
