Tuesday Toss Up - The One About Borrowing

Okay, most of you know I have a brother and a sister. I talk about them a lot on here. Family is pretty important to me. Well, yesterday I was pretty perturbed at said brother. Why you ask? Well, he stole, okay, "borrowed" my phone charger without my permission. Not just my house phone charger, my car phone charger. Now normally this wouldn't have mattered, but my cell phone was DEAD. I mean no life at all. I don't like going without a phone because I have an hour commute. But I got my charger back, and I got over it, and nothing happened where I would need my phone, so he's fortunate!
Anyway, this is my toss up question to you. Do you have siblings (or any family members for that matter) who think that just because they're related to you they don't have to ask when they take your stuff?

Not as much anymore since my sis and I live 3 1/2 hours apart, but we still occasionally end up wearing something that used to belong to the other one! I wish we lived close enough to borrow stuff from one another, though!

Well I have a brother, and I can most of the time if one of us needs something and the other knows, we'll offer it before the other one can ask.

I can't say he's ever taken anything without asking. Now his wife and I are more like sisters and when I had to move back in with my parents and they lived next door the two of us would borrow stuff all the time without asking. It was fun I guess because I never experienced anything like that growing up.

Cool question!

yes 3 daughters!!! They are grown and don't even live at home anymore and still "borrow" things without asking thinking its ok cause its just moms stuff.

I have a sister, but she lives about 6 hours away... ;-(

I don't think she would borrow anything without asking, though, because she's a genteel southern woman ... like you!

yes, my sister and I make a beeline for each other's shoe closet when we're visiting (we live 3 hours away from each other). sometimes we trade. I begged long and hard for this cute pair of shoes from her last week, but it didn't work. ;)
