Grr... So this is a weird situation and I would like some advice on how to handle this. I`m in a college band(same one I`ve been mentioning for a while now) and one of my guitarist forgot/lost/his-dog-ate-it/etc... his power cable to his amp. Knowing me, he bummed my spare off of me a few weeks ago for a gig which was fine. Well now it`s been a month and he still has it. I told him when I lent him it that I expected him to buy a new one ASAP because I absolutely hate lending people things(I`ve had bad experiences with people not giving things back in the past) and that I`d take it back within a few weeks regardless of what was going on band wise. Well that time finally came today. I went up to him before practice and told him that after practice I was taking the cable back. He then informs me that he doesn`t have it, but that he lent it to the other guitarist.... okay Well that guitarist couldn`t make it today so I told guitarist #1 and the drummer than I was taking it back since his amp is in the rehearsal space. They both then get quite aggressive and start asking me, "why do you have to take your guitarists cable?" "why aren`t you putting the band first?" So now I`m somehow the bad guy for wanting my cable back. I told them that I lent it to them so that we could do a gig and get through a few rehearsals, and that I didn`t give it to him to keep. They then go on to say I`m being rude and that it`s just a cable... Meanwhile I`m thinking, "Yeah, that`s $10 bucks I`m never going to see again once I either forget it or once the kid starts believing it`s actually his." Anyways TB, what do you think I should do? How should I handle this? Anyone else ever have this or something similar happen to you? I really don`t want to come across as some sort of @$$hole or some bad guy in this masquerade and I know it`s a fairly cheap piece of equipment, but it`s the principle of things. I almost know for a fact that neither of them will buy a new one unless I take it back... What do I do?
