Fair enough and I respect and admire your responsibility and integrity. My only complaint is that it might be a little harsh to lable someone who loses stuff as being irresponsible or as 'taking things for granted'. The fact is, shit vanishes. I'm not talking about large objects or expensive objects but things like socks or pens and I would imagine even the most responsible person in the world is guilty of possessing the odd sock or two.
tinyE: and to HiPhish, I'm not trying to start an argument here, but are you telling me that you have NEVER lost ANYTHING?
HiPhish: I am missing a USB thumbdrive or two, although I'm not sure if I lost them of someone I borred them to. The thing though is that there was nothing important on them or else i would have taken better care of them. Other than that, no I haven't. When it comes to electronics everything is in one place, games are in one place, and tools are in one place. That's just couting smaller objects, obviously I'm not going to lose large items. If I end up losing omething then its my fault for being messy. I didn't even use Lego pieces when I was a child, it was my younger sister who always would eventually break my toys and lose parts. Maybe I was just raised to not take things I have for granted and to look after them; especially games were something where i would only get one game in years.
When I was a kid and I lost something my mother's favorite thing to say was, "Well it didn't just get up and walk away!" One day I couldn't find my cat. She actually said to me, "Well it didn't just get up and walk away!"
