    No wonder Opal picks on you Earl.

    Bet that’s the last time he asks Earl if he can
    borrow something from him.

    I’ve known people like that:

    “Can you drop me off at the airport on Wednesday?”

    “What?! Children are starving in the Third World and all you can think about is a ride to the airport?!”

    That is probably the idea. I’d guess that he’s “borrowed” things before.

    A guy at work, studying to go to law school no less, asked to borrow a quarter for the vending machine. I gave him the quarter. 2 days later, he asked for 50 cents. 3 days later, 75 cents. The next day he wanted a dollar, at which point I asked when am I going to see this money again. Then he explained this is just a game he likes to play to see how much he can get away with before people call him on it; he had no intentions of paying it back unless I sued. He claimed he was once able to bid a “friend” up to $100. It’s jerks like him that give people a bad name.

    Well… if it was a random neighbour (like in this comics) asking that… I think it was a good enough excuse. Of course we are about 40 km / 50 min from airport (30 km of 40 is through city, so that’s why the time) – and then back, too – which for me is way too far for “dropping off” someone not my near family member. Get a taxi.

    A guy gave me the that excuse; then I told him that ordinarily we wouldn’t impose, but my wife and I were going to New Orleans for three months to help the Salvation Army with hurricane Katrina relief; and we needed to leave our car in the garage.

    When we returned four and a half months later, and our pictures were on the front of the Community section of the local newspaper, he apologized and said he thought I was lying.

    Finally did the research to figure out the characters better Sylvia is married to “Dan” Why don’t we ever see him? Nelson is Sylvia’s from a previous marriage? I just wonder why the background isn’t ever mentioned. http://syndication.washingtonpost.com/pickles

    And if he ever used you as a reference, you could seriously damage his future by telling the truth about him. Others definitely will.

    “Just use the one you borrowed last time.”
    A neighbor borrowed my father’s garden plow. Some years later he complained that the handle had rotted out. “Oscar, it was new when you borrowed it and I haven’t seen it since and I don’t care if you left it outside in the weather to rot.”
    (Daddy was hardhearted that way.)

    i got “bit” when i got my little portable table saw in a bind. yeah i was in too big a hurry, and didn’t realise the blade would rise up in that situation. that mistake almost cost me two of my favorite fingers. when i got home i set it in the yard and haven’t used it since.

    When I was a kid ,one of my uncles told me…" Two thing I don’t load out are my Car and my wife. " IN THAT ORDER.

    The only people who can borrow stuff from me is family because they always return what they borrowed.

    They aren’t neighbours are they? Everybody knows you never get things back when you lend them to your neighbours!

    My dad had a sign over the entrance door to his tool barn. It read “Like hell its yours. Put it back”.
