    I do not like when people disrespect my things. My younger sister does this all the time. Two examples: 1) She took my favorite t-shirt. I was looking for it for a LONG time. My dog ran into her room. I went to go get him out. While I was in her room, I saw my shirt.... covered...

    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.

    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...

    I Don't Like It When People Touch My Stuff

    I don't let people touch my stuff. In my local church group, there was a kid. He loved to touch my stuff without permission. For some reason, he threw my game controller against a wall. The controller broke in half, and I had to get a new one. Kids like this is banned from...

    My roommate freshman year of college stole some of my bras, and she would eat my food without asking. Us women know how expensive bras are - and these bras were just basic cotton ones - so imagine how annoyed I was that she had the nerve to steal mine And seriously - I would...

    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

    My neighbor that I have known for 3 years would always come into my house and walk around opening cupboards and the fridge. She would go through papers on my table and touch/go through anything that was next to her. It was always very irritating and one day I snapped at...

    My sister, for years now, has been known to steal anything and everything she wants. She is a diabetic so if she DOES steal something like a chocolate bar or something like that, she can literally DIE. So, my parent's solution to the problem? We can't have anything edible in...

    And He Does It All The Time !!!!!!!!

    Bro in law, he comes down here and is in every thing. Like a damn kid ! He touched my Magic Jack and now it's close to breaking.  He uses Jim's cologne, goes through his clothes, borrows them, and some how they never return ! Ugh !

    Mah Stuff

    I don't mind sharing at all, but i think there is a certain level of respect that should take place of asking to use something of my own.

    Paws Off!

    I have a business partner who comes in to my office and picks up things off my desk and looks at them. Sometimes they are business related things but sometimes they are personal items. I have seen him move stuff to get to things underneath on someone else's desk. I don't get it...
