Take a picture of your buddy, holding the item they borrowed from you. Then create a borrowed album folder in your phone gallery, to remember. Only delete the picture when the borrowed item has been returned.

Instead, respectfully explain your opinions. Don’t take it personally, when someone doesn’t agree with you. You don’t agree with everyone either.
