Well you know not to lend out precious things, again. Or evaluate how sentimental something is before you let them borrow it.
My friend did the same thing with a new book in a series that cost them about 50$ hardcover....lent it out to someone who claimed to share their love and passion for books and reading (they couldn't afford it and were begging for it after they'd seen it on the shelf). Now, this friend is a stickler for keeping things "like new" and in good condition, bitch never even cracked the spine of this book--after lending it out, it had been flattened, pages dog-eared, stained and occasional sticky-spots.
Needless to say Friend was choked and we don't talk to the other one, anymore.
Borrow something in return, and don't give it back either, unless they do. They're never going to respect you otherwise, and they sure as hell didn't forget about it after merely a year. After that, tell them to go fuck themselves. Disgusting behavior, I absolutely despise such people.
What thz the fuck eclipse I struggled to reply to that on speech to text and my whole response is not here.
Yeah I don't read much but there's a type of reading I can do occasionally when it's not a continuous type of reading like with stories, this kind of book has sort of really short tiny chapters with small paragraphs it feels a bit like reading a threat it feels a bit like reading a thread, it's a self-help book so it just takes a few minutes of reading at a time not something I read with the goal of finishing it. I don't know how to explain it better.
Like when I was a teenager a teen I used to read some philosophy or medical books because with this format I can but stories or anything chronological I struggle.
Comment riding: I thought you didn’t read, I know you have problems with posture books require but you can read books on computers now, there’s audiobooks. Plenty of ways to still enjoy the written word.
Sir, it seems you are not understanding or reading this thread. It is not its content but the book itself holding sentimental value. We live in a consumerist society. Yet there is still emotional attachment to individual objects rising a product to the level of personal scarcity.
Yeah I don't read much, sometimes I do with stuff that don't require a continuous reading unlike a story. This kind of book has short paragraphs in the shape of tiny chapters it does not go on for pages it's a bit like reading a thread.
I see.. I learned as a child not to relinquish sentimental objects. Upon learning I would not get it back I would kick and scream and have a mighty tantrum until a parent reacquired the asset. If you are an adult you unfortunately can not default to this tactic so you must take it as a lesson learned. Or force the issue perhaps offer favors in return for them allowing you to search within their home.
