    Re: A "took B's hand off" or "remove B's hand from" TV.

    Do you have to describe this happening to someone else?
    I am not a teacher.

    I don't understand sorry.

    If somebody touches my articles without my permission and I do not want that person to touch my articles then obviously I will say this to that person.

    Some of our comments were made because you wrote of a TV originally. Why did you do that if you had seen this happening with a laptop?

    On second thoughts, don't bother telling us. The thread has gone on long enough.

    If someone touches your stuff without your permission, you only need to know what to say directly to that person. I suggest "Please don't touch that". It's unlikely that you will need to relate the story to anyone else later, nor can I imagine you needing to relate a story about two other people having the same experience.

    Thread closed.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
