Why do people borrow and never return

I let a friend of mine borrow some items.but kind if funny hadn't seen him or my items.

A high school teacher of mine had the perfect solution. If you borrowed an item from him, he would trade for your watch and give it back when you returned the item. He never had a problem.

Welcome to my life. If people paid me back I'd be $70 richer. My sister hasn't paid me back in years. My brother hasn't in months. Yet they want more.

They just forgot or can't simply return because they have lost. Ask him or her for once.

Sometimes they just forget, but I think some people just take advantage of good nature and hope you won't bother asking for it.

Neither borrower nor a lender be!

never co-sign either(thats bibical too)

Perhaps you could use some friends who actually have a moral compass.

Mark Twain owned a huge library full of countless books, most of which he never purchased. The capacity of the bookshelves, In proportion to the numerous books, in that library was so menial that 80% of the books had to be kept stacked all around the library floor. A literary friend once visiting the library had the following conversation with Mr. Twain:

Friend: Why do you have so many books without, and out of, the shelves?
Mark Twain: Well, it seems, the bookshelves are too few to contain such a vast number of books in the library.
Friend: Why can't you have adequate number of bookshelves then?
Mark Twain: Because you see, being the gentleman that I am, I cannot really BORROW bookshelves from the friends as frequently as I BORROWED most of the books of this library; can I?

Many are very selfish. Motto: Don't lend money that you can't afford to lose.
