  • I would have said something to. I would have been pissed.

  • You put many more miles on her car and that is very costly. Wear and tear is much more costly than the money for a talk of gas. You should not have said anything. The coffee should have been cleaned up. But there is no reason or excuse for you saying anything.

  • I would've said forgot to do this? Then I would say it's ok. DOn't worry. That way she knew that I saw her sloppy ways but did not show how angry I really was. It usually makes people feel so guilty anyway...

  • i would have been sarcastic about it, but i probably would not have been pissed off. I still would have been glad that i got to use her nicer car.

  • I would have been mad about the coffee spill because that is just rude. How did she manage to use an entire tank of gas? lol Anyway, I wouldn't have said anything about the gas, but I would have been pissed as well.

  • A few days of wear and tear are not all that costly. I spent 11 years as a mechanic. And as long as the vehicle is properly taken of those miles she put on the car did not create any problems. Gas is freakin expensive. and the spilled coffee will cost money to get out of the car. I would have been angry as well. Next time I would refuse to switch cars.

  • I would have said something to her as well, yes that is rude. if someone uses my car I want it back in the exact same condition it was loaned out no matter who is using it

  • and thats why you never borrow or loan out your car......

  • Some people are just 'like that'...even our own moms sometimes. IMHO, it's wrong and would have been fair for both to agree to terms first. Return, clean, full and try to take good care of others vehicle. Next time, if there IS a next time, you'll know what to do first.
