    +1 million on the glue. Someone comes over and says, "can I borrow your thumbdrive", instead of offending them by saying "Oh I only lend it to special people", simply say, "Sorry I can't, its glued". Simples.

    I don't have a problem with lending my USB sticks so much with people who think asking me to lend it is no-big-deal. So I do this instead.

    "Can I borrow your thumbdrive?"

    221330.png
    *Hold out your hand, palm up*

    "Huh?"

    "You can borrow it. But I'll require a deposit. €50."

    "€50!?"

    "I'm just as serious about getting my thumbdrive back as you are about getting your fifty back. You're welcome to take it or leave it."

    The hold-out-hand-gesture, initial silence, and genuine politeness are each important. If you do it so its like there's some widely known unspoken rule they're ignoring they may be too embarrassed or obedient to protest. Most importantly they'll not want to ask you in future if they've they're the kind who just can't get their sh't together and make a habit of this.

    If they haggle, the correct response is, politely but firmly:

    "I'm sorry, but €10 isn't €50."

    There's nothing as frustrating to argue with as a murderously self evident fact and no way to change the scope of the argument. They'll give up, and its unlikely they'll be back.

    If they do actually agree (its never happened, but I don't rule it out), I presume you've no problem lending it like me, the cost of the drive is a lot less than €50 (if more, demand higher; in multiples of €50. Nice crisp notes matter.), and all data on the drive is already backed up (so even if it accidentally erased everything it will not be a problem).

    shower tip is to use a permanent marker when you get the shower temperature right.

    note
    this will vary according to the thermostat on your boiler and according to how cold your cold water is during the year

    That looks very similar to what artist Alan Lee had left after all the conceptual art he done for the Hobbit movie.

    Most motor factors will stock it, also places like Peats, Maplin etc. :)
