My daughter and son in law have asked if they can use our Skipper for a week after new year and I cannot believe how possesive I am about the van. Its not like they are irresponsable and don't look after things, its just that I was 65 before we bought our Skipper new and we do take good care of it. We have agreed but I will not relax until the van is back safe and sound.
Ek hou ook nie van Leen nie........wie is sy.....lol.
Ek leen my wa vir niemand uit nie. As hul wil kamp, het ek n tent wat hul kan gebruik
Niemand pas jou eiendom op soos jyself nie. Leen en saamrygeleenthede is maar waagstukke en hou net potensiële nadele in vir die eienaar. As jou toerusting in 'n swakker toestand terugkom as wat jy dit uitgegee het, is daar onmiddelik konflik. Mense wat sonder aanmoediging die skade sal herstel of vergoed, is dieselfde mense wat in die eerste instansie NIE skade sal veroorsaak nie en hulle is terselfdertyd ook mense wat nie sal wil leen nie. As jy dit nie het nie, kom jy daarsonder oor die weg, was my Ma se siening en ek steun dit.
Would not lend to best friends but its different when direct family is involved. My son in law is taking his own tent to share with 6 yr grandson and daughter is using Skipper with 4 mth baby. Think they are brave camping with a baby and no electricity at Cobham in the berg.
Off course we treat family different than friends. I was referring to lending in general in reaction to some of the entries above. I will not even consider lending our Skipper to anyone but I might just be willing to compromise if our children are the borrowers. But the Skipper is too small for them, so this is purely an academic question. Our youngest daughter and her family might be caravaners not too far in future but are camping quite happily in a tent at present..
My wife looks after our things sometimes to the extreme and wants to make a cover for just about every camping implement we have . Her brother and sister on the otherhand should be working at the SABS doing all their destructive testing , my brother in law for example will buy a car out the box and drive it into the ground that it needs to be towed away eventually, I lent him my car for a day once and it gets towed home and he tells me his mechanic told him the timing belt had slipped a tooth or two , no offer to repair , luckily it was a half hour job for me to repair , I wouldn`t even lend him my anvil.
Ek stem heelhartig met jou saam Fred. Die wat enige skade sal regmaak, is ook die wat nie sal leen nie.
Nee wat. Ek sal nie en het nog nooit iemand anders gevra om hulle karavaan (of selfs hulle kar) te leen nie. Daardie karavaan se as (of ratkas van die kar) mag net besig wees om te groet en dit mag net dalk gebeur sodra ek daar by sy huis by die hek uitry. En dan....dan moet ek dit natuurlik regmaak.
Dieselfde met my karavaan of kar leen aan ander. Dit sal nie gebeur nie.
