Loaning out a lens

I let my brother borrow my lens over a month ago, worth $600. I called him the following weekend and he said he would swing by and return it the next day. Since then I have called him numerous times and no answer or call back. I shot him a quick text asking him if the lens is still all good and well. No reply. I just tried to call him. I gotta tell you, I didn't expect him to do me wrong like this. :mad:

Disappearing with someone else's lens is even less cool.:cool:

Oh, didn't mean to quote you. I meant the stealing of the lens part is not cool. I think the kneecapping part he probably deserves.

Could it be possible that he's lost his phone...?
Or maybe he's had a serious accident (or worse) and can't return calls or his phone has been damaged?

Have any other family members been in contact with him recently? If not, perhaps your first thoughts should be for your brother's wellbeing and not about a $600 lens that can easily be replaced.

I would assume that unless the family really don't talk, any bad news about the brother would have travelled pretty quickly.

Which makes me worry about the lens!

Take a trip over with Luigi and Alfonso - this needs "treatment"! :D

The OP broke the cardinal rule: NEVER loan anything you want to keep to a family member.

You watch, now. No matter how this works out, it'll be the OP's fault for causing a breach in the family, not the brother's for misappropriating/misus​ing his lens.
