"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

Doesn't you aunt have liability insurance? In the Netherlands it's required to have insurance for liability.

But still, it's not very nice of her not to compensate you for your damage. Especially if you are really born in 1998 ;).

"It burst into flames! It burst into flames, and it's falling, it's crashing! Watch it! Watch it, folks! Get out of the way! Get out of the way! Get this, Charlie! Get this, Charlie! It's fire--and it's crashing! It's crashing terrible! Oh, my, get out of the way, please! It's burning and bursting into flames, and the--and it's falling on the mooring-mast and all the folks agree that this is terrible, this is the worst of the worst catastrophes in the world. Ohhhhh! It's-it's-it's the flames, oh, four- or five-hundred feet into the sky and it ... it's a terrific crash, ladies and gentlemen. It's smoke, and it's flames now ... and the frame is crashing to the ground, not quite to the mooring-mast. Oh, the humanity and all the passengers screaming around here. I told you, I can't even talk to people whose friends are on there. Ah! It's-it's-it's-it's ... o-ohhh! I-I can't talk, ladies and gentlemen. Honest, it's just laying there, a mass of smoking wreckage. Ah! And everybody can hardly breathe and talk, and the screaming. Lady, I-I'm sorry. Honest: I-I can hardly breathe. I-I'm going to step inside, for I cannot see it. Charlie, that's terrible. Ah, ah--I can't. I, listen, folks, I-I'm gonna have to stop for a minute because I've lost my voice. This is the worst thing I've ever witnessed."

Kids that won't keep a clean path on the floor of their room from the door to their bed, so that I can go in and kiss them goodnight!

Jeremy1998

Well, let me re-phrase that...

The analog stick has one puncture hole in it... The little dome that the analog stick comes out of is dented into the analog stick.

And they have a new version of the controller... Thats the old one... I want the one that is all blacked out...
