A MAN has borrowed a DVD from his friend knowing full well he will never return it.
Tom Logan borrowed Nathan Muir’s copy of Vertigo after the two had met up for a yearly drink and catch up at Muir’s flat.
Muir said: “He was looking at my DVDs while we were chatting about stuff and he saw Vertigo. He said he’d never seen it and asked if he could borrow it and ‘give it a watch’.
‘Now, I know I won’t see Tom for another 3-4 months, at least ,and even then, he’s not likely to be carrying my copy of Vertigo on him.’
‘So, what he essentially asked me was, ‘Can I have this DVD?’.
“And if I say ‘No’, then I suppose that makes me some sort of prick.”
Muir added: “I didn’t get him a Christmas present or anything but that still doesn’t mean he gets to pick a DVD at random and take it home with him.”
Logan said: “I could try and justify it, but it’s really just a form of theft.”
