Perhaps this is the wrong place for this, but I am seriously wondering what the etiquette is for allowing people to handle your yo-yos.
I know this may seem a little long but I could use any advice people have to give.
I have a “friend” who started yo-yoing with me 7 months ago. He screwed up his yo-yo and then gave it up. Recently I have been buying more yo-yos as I have gotten into throwing more. Upon receiving a Noctu in the mail my friend decided to start throwing again and went out and bought a SPYY Solarus. A week later he is bragging on how it is the greatest yo-yo ever and how it can “beat” anything I have (whatever that is suppossed to me).
So here comes the etiquette part. He sees my SPYY Flying V and just picks it up without asking and starts throwing it. Then he says Oh, this is responsive. To which he then uses it to Walk the Dog across the sidewalk (on asphault). Then when I call him on it and take back my scratched to hell Flying V he just laughs and says What it is a legitamite trick, don’t be so angry. You have many more yo-yos anyway.
Next day he comes in slams his Solarus into the ground twice then when it is wobbling, reaches for my Noctu. I stop him and say that if he can’t respect yo-yos he isn’t allowed to use mine.
He claims I’m being selfish.
So what is the proper etiquette here? Am I wrong for wanting to protect my precious yo-yos? Or am I being petty by not letting him use them?
