The Business Rules of Toddler Toys

1. If I like it, it’s mine. 2. If it’s in my hand, it’s mine. 3. If I can take it from you, it’s mine. 4. If I had it a little while ago, it’s mine. 5. If it’s mine, it must never appear to be yours in any way. 6. If I’m doing or building something, all of the pieces are mine. 7. If it looks just like mine, it’s mine. 8. If I think it’s mine, it’s mine. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ (Not original, but oh so true.)

    I’m pretty sure those are the rules of Enterprise Data, too.

      9. If it’s broken, you broke it … and I want another one NOW.

        That works if it’s the toddler to the parent, but mine works between toddlers.
