Photographers, help! can I borrow a CPL?

I am leaving to vacation on Wed and I rented a Canon 10-22mm lens to do some landscape shots. What I assumed in my noobness that it would be a 72mm lens and I already had a CPL filter for that size.

The lens came in today and it is 77mm

so, here is a cry for help - anyone has CPL filter and maybe a ND filter in 77mm for me to borrow for a week?

I know, but I don't plan to own another lens in this size and to buy it for one time use - I would love to avoid that

If you ever buy F2.8 lenses (ie 24-80, 80-200) most are 77mm. You shooting water in the pics?

I will be shooting water, really would love to reduce the glare.

And I just bought Sigma 18-50 f/2.8 EX DC Macro - and part of the decision was - because it was 72mm

I am looking for 70-200 f/4 now that is 77, but I would probably not use it in the situations that would require CPL
