I would have said no, but offered to let her use the phone to call her son and someone to pick her up.

Honestly, it seems a bit sketch…

Hells no. Call your son or walk to the school lady, a half mile won’t kill you!

NO WAY!!!!!

I would have offered to call her a cab! Or MAYBE (slight maybe) offered to drive her – but probably not!

Yeah, don’t think so lady!

Why didn’t she ask you if you could drive her there before asking to borrow a car??

Does she think you’re going to just hand over the keys?

I definitely wouldn’t lend my car to anyone I didn’t know!  Half a mile is a walkable distance! If she’s really in trouble, she could just walk to the high school and get help there. I don’t understand why she couldn’t get a tow truck to come out.

Um, borrow the car?  That’s bizarro.  I could see asking to use the phone to call a cab (though, as a pp noted, a half mile certainly won’t kill her depending on weather conditions) or call the school to let them know she’ll be late, but jeeze … no way.

Yeah, and why wouldn’t a tow truck come get her car?? DEFINITELY sketchy.  Glad you didn’t let her in the house either.

@CupcakeSprinkles: Actually, the “can I use your phone? My car broke down” line is one that robbers commonly use to get into people’s houses, so I might be even more skeptical if they asked for that. Asking to borrow your car is just outrageous.

ETA: It would have been funny to see her reaction if you responded by saying “Why don’t you call the police, they can give you a ride!”

umm no!!  very sketchy, if she was worried about getting in touch with or getting to her son she would have asked for the phone, or even a ride.  not to mention i’ve heard so many crazy scams very similar to that lately i’m pretty sure this is just another.

*edit- my dad owned a tow truck company, i can assure you they’d be racing each other to come and get her!  they need the business/money

I used to be a good person, but then I went to law school. Thats grand theft auto waiting to happen.  If you MUST let her borrow, I would ask to hold her driver’s license. Call her a cab though!
