I have encountered exactly the same problem. For that reason I have partioned my portable hard disk in a HFS and a FAT partition (which is of course limited to files of 2 GB).

Shouldn't it be "a USB key" instead of "an"?

Well, there is a common decent file system for such uses: UDF. It has been designed and is mostly used for optical discs, but it is now perfectly usable for RW media such as USB keys.

I personally prefer reformatting my stick everytime I have to be social :)

Why would you put a journalling fs on a flash drive? ext4 should really be ext2 ...

Definitely "a USB key"
a/an is decided by the sound the pronunciation starts with, not the letter. In this case, USB is pronounced you-ess-bee. Y--in this case-- is a consonant sound, so the proper phrasing is a, not an.
