Nor a lender be.
Well, sure, I first heard that phrase on a classic Gilligan's Island episode where the castaways staged a play (I cannot possibly explain to the new generations). Anyhow, one of my greatest frustrations in my old job in Texas was the willingness of students to come to my office to ask to borrow stuff, like my stapler, phone or even a printer one time.
The problem of stapler shortages seems to remain as I still get students trying to turn in papers sans the metal keeping the pages together. Oy.
Anyhow, here is a nice documentary on the subject:
