"Tell you what - since $30.00 (or even $15.00) is such "pocket change" to you, why don't you paypal me that money? After all, it ain't much, right?"
No, I have to take care of my own crap, and if it gets screwed up I have to replace it, not start crying about it on the internet a month later
As already noted, this I agree with; though the aunt should've probably placed it on a side table, or up in his room, or held onto it and given it to him directly...
if she left it on the table and the dog chewed it up would it have been any better? and what good would have handed it to him have done? it would have been right back on the counter, table or stairs anyway
since obviously its such a prized possession to not be freakin mindful of it in the first place
Well - I don't know her, but you have to admit it was a pretty bone-headed move;
not really my parents used to place crap on the top/ bottom step for me to take down /up all the time, its a pretty common move
I guess I just look at all electronics as being worth something to handle with care, which probably comes from being a kid and having parents who bought me devices for (what I realize now) was a LOT of money - and I had to take care of them, otherwise I wasn't getting another.
and the op sees them as something to willy-nilly leave and forget wherever whenever, and is now learning that he needs to take care of the stuff he likes
Kids doing yard work - in Arizona - in the summer?
It aint only hot in Arizona, I saw a kid mowing the grass here in Tennessee last week, and it was 106 in the sun, over 80% humidity and very little air moving without a cloud in the sky
suck it up wuss
I work in those conditions daily, it may be hotter but the humidity and little wind here is like being in a sauna
