Following the theme of borrowed or lost items, what about something in between? Housesitting, pet watching; these are professional jobs, but they are also jobs we get a friend, neighbour, cousin to do. What level of trust is there? How does the ‘looker-after’ feel about the house/pet/car etc. There is quite a high level of responsibility, but does it become personal?
