Have you borrowed books from others?
Yeah, I’ve actually borrowed a lot of books from my friends. It’s definitely cheaper than buying the latest book I want to read. Plus, since I’m such a book-lover, it helps me bond with my friends by seeing what they like to read. You just have to make sure you return the book in good shape.
Have you ever borrowed money from others?
I don’t want to make a habit of it, but I’ve borrowed money from others in the past. For instance, last year I accidentally ruined my laptop by spilling coffee on it. I had to borrow money from my friends to pay for a new one. It was a total bummer.
Would you like to lend your phone to others?
Well, it depends on the situation. If they need to borrow it to make a phone call, I can totally do that for them. But I wouldn’t want to let them borrow it for a long time. I’m pretty attached to my phone. I use it all the time, so I would want to keep it to myself.
Would you like to lend things to others? What would you like to lend to others?
I think it’s good to be generous with your things. Everyone likes a helping hand. So yeah, I’d like to lend things to others if I have the chance. I’m fine with letting people borrow my books or even my clothes if they want. It’s nice to share your stuff with others.
Is there anything that you will not lend to others?
I definitely wouldn’t lend anything really expensive to others. For example, I wouldn’t lend them my laptop or my phone, since they cost me an arm and a leg. I wouldn’t want to lend hygiene products like my toothbrush either. That would really gross me out. It’s best to keep that stuff to yourself.
