(Depending on who you lend it to, sure.  Some people never return  anything.  I still owe a guy a bike that I borrowed in 1970!  And, also a few DVDs that I borrowed about 5-6 years ago!  Different guy, of course.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  PITFALL

(I guess the kid said it all:  “Wow!  That stinks.”  The pun, that is.  The overall Jumble was great.
