    Argg!!! The Frustration!!!

    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...

    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.

    Seriously

    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...

    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.

    Pet Peeve

    More than anything, I'm more than annoyed when a strangers touches my property. I didn't work my butt off for everything I have so some *****/punk can dirty my stuff with their grubby, if not greasy,hands. On the other hand, I have no problem with a close friend touching my stuff...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    I have no problem if people want to look at my things - but for the love of God, ASK FIRST! It's just common courtesy.

    Someone else I don't like - the person whose opinion of himself/herself is way too high. You know the kind. The one who is so much better than everyone else.
