Those are not "your companies" dude

Check out It’s Not My Company(from Feld Thoughts:)
"While I’ve got plenty of rights as an investor, I’m very aware that I’m “an investor.” If you are a CEO or an entrepreneur, I can’t imagine anything more annoying than hearing one of your investors refer to the business as “his company.”  Now, if the investor owns more than 50% of the company, I guess this is a legitimate legal perspective, but it’s still an incredibly demotivating position to tak" (from: It’s Not My Company)
I couldn't agree more. I have many VC friends and acquaintences (there is a difference :) and I always mentally smirk when I hear them talking about 'my companies' and words to that effect.
