rude not to return items?
« on: March 22, 2012, 05:17:39 PM »
I once had this really toxic boyfriend, and it ended with a nasty breakup.  A couple of years later, he emailed me about getting back some of his stuff (some old books, a jacket, a sleeping bag).  He also owed me some money, but said nothing about repaying it.

I had no desire to have any contact whatsoever with him.  As far as I was concerned, the stuff and money were just breakup fallout.  So I never replied to his emails.

Was that rude?

Of course not. How could it be?

A couple of years later?  No, you weren't rude.

If he had contacted you directly after the break up, then maybe.

I wouldn't have blamed you if you had responded and said, 'I'll return it when you pay me the $$$ you owe me.'
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.
