Great comment.
It explains a lot to me about related items with respect to sharing.

Sharing means sharing equally. Work as well as usage. When you do the maintenance and they do the taking, that is not sharing. Some would even say it is codependent -- you are encouraging a dysfunctional relationship. It's important to help others learn respect and responsbility.
