Are you stingy with your laptop?

I am sort of. Whenever someone asks to use it, I always find myself making up excuses to why they can't at the moment. I don't know why. I'm not stingy with anything else. But this is the only thing that I can say is truly mine.

  • Yes! I don't like anyone to use it. Not that I have anything to hide, but I just always feel like someone is going to open something, delete it, move stuff around. I don't like my husband to use it. I don't like our son to use it. My laptop is my best friend. That sounds pathetic, but it's true.

  • I am stingy. When DD wants to play nickjr I make her use the desktop. Before we got wireless, I'd have the modem plugged in to my computer so she would just have to wait.

  • Nope but SO has his own. Usually the kids only want on it when I am on it so it's frustrating sometimes.

  • yes. I don't like anyone else to touch it. But I use it for school and business and I would be in deep poo if they fried it!

  • Yes, my son can use the desktop so I rarely let him on my laptop and then usually just to watch a movie with me.

  • I don't need to worry about it because dh and the kids each have their own.

  • YES! I just bought this a few weeks ago. My daughter can use the desktop and my husband has an identical laptop. I don't want my kids breaking it or messing up something. They did something with the desktop and now I can't download files because they only want to download as binary files.

  • I am very protective of my laptops (I have 2 laptops and a netbook). I rarely if ever let anyone use them and when someone gets on it I make a face and hover over them until they get off. And i only do that because they get on it when i get up to go do something real quick while I was in the middle of something. Irks me to no end

  • Everybody around here knows better :) I'm kidding, if I'm not using it I don't care.
