How come when friends come over to your house and see your bass, they always want to screw around with it? Like sometimes my friends will come over and put on the strap like a necklace, and then start violently and stupidly pluck the strings with their thumb all the way under the string, or start strumming it with a quarter. > Last time my friend touched my bass, ALL the strings were out of tune. My friends are still my friends, but I wish they would just respect my property. I mean, I don't understand why people always go "Ooh, shiny, I wanna play with it! My house is not Best Buy.
