    What do you do?

    My brother asked to use my truck and trailer to go orange tomorrow. Am I wrong to say no?

    Is it too late for intervention and tough love?
    If man had enough horse sense to treat his wife like a Thoroughbred, she'd never grow into an old nag.

    Tough love, I think that is the only answer.

    Family comes first in my book. Can't say I'd agree with his choice, but orange does make a good product, just personal preference on what I buy. I'd even let either of my brothers borrow my tractor ... I'd probably do the tractor work for him, but if he wanted to borrow it, I wouldn't have any issue with that. My brothers would let me borrow any of their stuff too, if I ever ask.

    Now if my brother bought an orange or red or blue tractor ... that would just make interesting discussions during the holidays.

    Just my 2 cents.

    You could offer to go pick it up.
    I'd loan out the truck and trailer.
