12. Borrow a Dress for a Big Occasion
You’re in the process of losing weight, so you don’t want to invest in a new formal dress just for one occasion, so you borrow from a friend. This sets up a situation where your friend will feel entitled to raid your closet at will. You will also spend the evening paranoid that someone will accidentally step on your hem, snag a sleeve while dancing, or spill Sangria on you. Your friend will inspect the dress upon return, and even if you get it professionally cleaned, she may make a face anyway. Better to just buy a dress,tuck in the tags, wear it once a return it than go through the drama.
