My friend needed to clean her house and I let her borrow my vacuum. It’s been over a month and she still hasn’t returned it. She said she had asked me to pick it up the following day, but I never agreed to it and she only half mentioned it and wasn’t clear. I really need my vacuum back. I’ve tried emailing, calling and texting her and most of the time I don’t get a response. This isn’t fully unusual because where she lives has almost no cellphone reception. When she does reply she says she’s been busy but since it’s over a month this is ridiculous. What are my options? I can only think of reporting it stolen to the police but I really like her and don’t want to get her in trouble. I could try telling her I’m going to report it stolen if she doesn’t give it back. Just to be clear I haven’t actually seen her in over a month.
It's not a super expensive vacuum but I need it to clean my place, and I don't understand what the deal is. I told her I consider this stealing and she said she doesn't want my vacuum.
