An exchange typically goes like this:
Fellow Student: I don't have a pen, can I borrow one?
Me: Sure, just don't break it or touch the shiny metal end (nib) unless you want to look like a hobo.
Them: Have you ever stabbed someone with this?
Them: 'Attempts to write sideways'
Me: Don't do that, it wont write! Here hold it this way.
Them: Do you have any normal pens.
It just so happened that once I gave a very close friend an eyedropper Platnium Preppy filled with Noodler's Navajo Turquoise and he opened the section, even after I told him not to. He ended up looking like a smurf for several days afterward as he didn't know how to get the ink off. He even seemed amused. I do have one friend that is perfectly capable with my pens, but unfortunately he has no real interest in them. I'm now hardly ever asked for pens. I go to a very small school and as such I can bring more expensive pens there than would be normally acceptable. I'm also never asked for paper anymore as I only use Rhodia and usually its a dot pad and people can't figure out how to use it. But on the upside I get to know my pens very well.
