    Don't Like

    Depends what it is but most of it, I don't like for anyone touching it.  If they ask, it is a different story.  :P

    It Depends...

    It really depends on what stuff you are talking about but some things are more sacred than others.  For example, before I wrecked my beautiful car I only offered to let very few people drive it.  I didn't want people changing the presets on the CD/MP3 player.. I didn't...

    Only Specific People

    Or just one or two people in particular. Otherwise I have no restrictions. I don't have many things people would like to touch anyway.

    Nosey Neighbors

    Dislike

    I really hate it! I hate it! Probably because i am disorganized to begin with but when people mess with my stuff it infuriates me because then i have to buy new stuff and i am a very clean person so automatically everyone else will make my stuff dirty and it will not be clean.
