    fastidious

    Hello,

    I'm looking for an adjective that would fit the following contexts:

    Tom takes a few sips of water from Jerry's bottle instead of his and apologises. Jerry's reply is: "No worries. I'm not ...."?
    Or Mary asks for Ann's comb because she forgot hers. Ann's reply: "I'm sorry, I can't give you mine. I'm pretty....".

    Does 'fastidious' fit?

    Thank you.

    "Fussy" is the one that springs to mind for me.

    Or for an unlikely, but possible, choice, "anal".
