Speaking of lawnmowers, I had a great mower and weed eater which worked great until I decided to hire a gardener. My next door neighbor asked if he could borrow my power equipment to do his yard, and since I wasn't using them, I said, "go ahead." Two years later, he said my mower broke on him and said it was going to cost $100 to fix, and asked when he could pick up the money from me. After I laughed for a bit, he got the hint and fixed it himself.
A month later, I saw him toss my gas powered weed eater across his yard saying the POS never works right. He threw it in the trash and bought a new one. Question is....do I now own the new one, or have I relinquished my rights to the mower and weed eater?
