    I Am Very Stingy..

    when it comes to certain things. My computer is one of them. Want to borrow my clothes? Fine. Eat my food? Whatever.  Touch my computer without me there? Sure, unless you want all your fingers cut off and fed to you. If you need to do something on it, you damn well better make...

    Agitating Tick

    It is 2010 and with this year comes technology. Many people don't own diaries/journals any more- no their personal belongings of hidden secrets are their computers. Like many others, I use my laptop for everything. It is used for work, writing, research and watching movies...

    Same goes for my iPhone.

    I don't feel comfortable about anyone to use my phone or computer. If I wanted to share my music or photo, I could let them use freely.

    I've had too many bad experiences with people

    accidentally deleting my work, my photos, and my program files. Sometimes they'll readjust my personalization settings during their one-time use, leaving me confused and wasting time to fix everything to my liking. Oh and I also had a friend drop my laptop and spill orange juice...

    people using my computer. It's not that I have "personal stuff" on here. I just paid good money for it and don't want it to be broken. I've gone through many laptops because someone has dropped it or downloaded a virus or something stupid like that. I just don't want to have to...

    And Here's Why...

    My brother was over and he wanted to find a hardware store nearby. He asked if he could use my laptop; well, "asked" is being nice, he basically said "Let me use your computer" and I felt compelled to do so. After he found the hardware store's location, he began clicking around...

    Warning. Contents Are Toxic.

    I wish that that title was actually true for my computer so that people don't have the nerve to use it. I feel like they're violating my privacy. It's got too much of my personal stuff in it, so when anyone uses it, I watch them like a hawk so that they don't come across anything...

    I Have to Agree With Eveybody That Is a Part of This Group

    You do not feel confortable with people touching/using your computer because you have personal files on there you don't want them to see, they could mess up your computer, or your computer could get a virus because of them.
