How do you feel when someone borrows a book and then returns it all bent and creased. This is one thing that infuriates me. I only let someone borrow a book once and it came back looking like a dog had attacked it. When my friend returned it, she just handed it to me as if nothing was wrong. I think it had a coffee stain on it too. YUK. Never ever again will I do that.

At least you got your's back - I lent two of my favourite hardbacks to a work colleague three years ago, and I'm still waiting for them to come back, despite reminding her! I agree it's totally infuriating and I guess we should both learn from this...

I agree with you but how to say NO? It's very difficult to say no without sounding mean, is it possible to have a good reason/excuse to refuse to lend one's property.
