I loaned a cooler to someone that I worked with once many moons ago. He was going hunting/camping etc. He returned the cooler and I really didn't think much about it. About a week later I opened it and I was totally disgusted. It was full of moldy rotten meat! The stench was so bad that it was revolting. This was an $80 coleman cooler back in the 80's. There was no way that I could clean the stench out of it. Why don't people have more respect for other's property. I had to throw the cooler away. Im not even going into raising kids and loaning them my car. What have your experiences been?
