The other day PartySugar was waiting at the bus stop and had just slipped her BlackBerry into her purse when a woman came up to her and asked if she could borrow Party's phone. I believe her exact reaction was "ummm no!" Of course the woman just looked at her, like she was crazy for not handing it over to her in an instant. Loaning out gadgets like cell phones and cameras - even if just for a second or when asking someone else to capture a moment for you - has always troubled me. Perhaps we are just big city girls that have been trained not to trust anyone, but can you really trust a perfect stranger with your $600 camera or the cell phone that contains 200 numbers and every e-mail from the past six months?
