Normally, I do not like borrowing or lending things.
In fact, I borrow things only as a last resort.
In case of lending, I am strictly against lending money, but I do lend other things sometimes.
Today, I am going to talk about a time when I lent my scooter to a neighbor.
It was about a month ago.
My neighbor had an exam in the neighboring city, Jalandhar.
Unfortunately, there was a public transportation strike that day.
My neighbor has a bike but he had a small accident a few days prior to the exam, so his bike
was with a mechanic.
The strike was also announced last minute, so he couldn’t make prior arrangements.
On the day of the exam, he told me about his predicament and asked if he could borrow my
bike for a day.
I had no work that day and so I lent it to him.
Like I said before, I normally don’t like when others ask to borrow things for me.
However, it was a rare circumstance and I couldn’t even think of saying no.
In fact, I felt good about helping my friend.
At the same time, I was a bit worried because my bike was brand new.
My friend returned the bike the same day as soon as he came back.
In the future, I wouldn’t mind lending it again, if it is a dire situation like that time.
However, I don’t think he will ask again.
