    Going out to eat with people who act like the service or food isn't good enough when they are doing the best they can. You ruin it for everyone when you act like a jerk.

    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.
