    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 !

    Ask First!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Grr.

    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...

    Nosey Neighbors

    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 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...
