Scenerio:
 At about 8:15am, you child comes to you and asks, "do you have a thumb drive I can borrow?"
You do not, but ask "when do you need it?  Maybe I can bring one home from work this evening, or pick one up for you the next time I'm out."
Your child responds, "I need it today."

What is your next response?

Anything computer related they would not even come to me for.   That would fall under daddy's area.

What do you need it for and why didn't you tell me about it last night or when you first knew about it?
