Awesome parents. Grew up somewhat poor and learned to save money.
Why do girls say "I'll think about it" when what the mean is "No"? Just fucking say No, don't play games with me bitch.
My father has always lied to me, anon. Hes fed me bullshit conspiracies and shit advice as a kid. He couldn't teach me math, english, or anything properly when I was a child. And he always told me to ask him about it.

He always tried draning sympathy out of me when I caught onto him as well. He kept doing that to me and my sister, acting as if he was in pain or crying crocodile tears or giving a sob story- and if that didn't work he would lose his shit and wish I was never born or how I was so much better when I was younger. He kept doing this to me until I lost all trust and respect for him.

Thank you for reading my blog.

That sort of obfuscation doesn't help anyone, and realistic expectations helped me become a healthy adult rather than a spoiled shit.

Us parents, huh?
Read up on louis the fourteenth. He invented 'I'll see"
My parents were very similar anon. My mother would always twist every event to make herself into the victim and do everything she could to hurt my sister and I, calling us worthless and freaks any time we did something she didn't like. Eventually my sister broke away and tried to help me but my mother always tried to tear us apart. I finally broke away too and now my sister and I are really close but I still have mother issues. My dad died early thankfully so I didn't have to go through any beatings or anything.

Raised by a single mother, but same thing as this anon pretty much. She explained why things weren't possible in ways I could understand, and when she said "we'll see" she really meant yes, just trying to hide the surprise.
Why do people do this? Just go with the flow for some shit and just don't bother raising a fuss sometimes?

Fuck that, I want to see what happens when I say something someone doesn't expect me to say.

"Actually I was constipated this morning because of all the noodle cups I ate. You see, I'm the type of person that holds his shit in for a week..", "I didn't forget; you didn't hold your promise. You lied to me.", "Actually [earlier excuse] didn't really happen. I lied to you."
Oh yeah, they tried that crap with me. And it didn't work; I always remembered.

fuck I used to make comics, flash, and play/write music. I've never had a new years resolution in my life but I think I'm going to do something creative with my time again
did you pushed his shit after all these years at the very least?
Nah. I didn't ask for much, and I got whatever I did ask for. I did chores on the farm and when I was young I basically could just ask for stuff and I guess I never went over what the value of my work was to them because they never said no. I never skipped or halfassed anything I was asked to do.

If I asked for something big, I'd get extra work, I'd do it, and then I'd get whatever.

And I got to make money anyway I could if I wanted to, like baling, I could do that and sell the bales whenever I wanted. Also did fun stuff like bounties for other farmers, they'd pay me for various types of tails to confirm my kills.

I bought a shitload of c64 games that way. Had a guy up the road who raised minks and coyotes would stress them and that could fuck up their fur so he paid a premium for their tails for awhile, $50 a tail.

I'm kind've glad games were different back then or I would have ended up doing a lot of fetch quests to do a lot of fetch quests.

that did fucking suck
As a middle class family, I got pretty much the things I wanted most, but the little things on my wishlist were ignored. Not that bad of a compromise, honestly.

The only stupid thing was I wasn't allowed to play any "violent" games until I just started doing it anyways (this definition was flaky as hell anyways, it was basically just anything M-rated and FPS games). So one year I asked for Advance Wars and my Mom freaked out so I got Professor Layton instead. At least I lucked out that the guy behind the counter wasn't such a dickhole he just shoved some shovelware on me, and I like the PL games as a result.

As of recent, though, my Dad won't buy me anything. I asked him if it's because he thinks I'm too old for presents, but he never admits to it. I just want him to tell me the truth. He's extremely controlling about some things.

You think it's that easy? A new year's resolution? If you lose that spirit, it's gone, man.
It really sucks when you see someone you care about not able to handle their fucking money

i went back to the old house many years later after we left and it was completely renovated. Completely different family lives there now. When I asked my mother about it she said he moved back with his parents house (my divorce out of hate for my stepdad dont get me wrong but the family was falling apart financially and she was doing the heavy lifting and wanted to "cut the fat"). From what I hear from his son who isn't that bad now but is genuinly sorry for how he acted as a kid and confesses that he did most of what he did because his dad forced him. Turned out he was a horrible person to his real son behind everyones back and the ex took him away because he was fucking awful as a dad. he said his dad is a washed out old fat has been. I haven't seen either of them in years since.
I moved out of the house seven years ago, but my 12 year old sister still lives there. My parents pull all kinds of bullshit with her.

my mom and dad did this shit. they always complained about not having money. years later I find out that they're fucking millionaires and were trying to teach me a fucking lesson. now I buy all the games and shit I want since I'm not worried about retirement.

I'm still bitter about missing out on most games when I was a kid. seriously, that shit was not cool, and I would pawn shit while I was in college to make rent/pay bills because I thought my parents had no money

I feel bad since they feel bad when they can't get me anything. I never asked for anything for my birthday this year, asked my dad to loan me $250 a month ago to replace a broken monitor and last night when I said I'd have the money to pay him back after my next check he told me not to worry about it. I hate owing people money, and being a leech for a while's made me really hate to rely on him for anything. Meanwhile my brother and sister both owe him far more than $10k that he'll never see again.

High school teacher here, I've seen this shit a few times now.

I live in one of the poorest goddamn communities in NC, yet I see these kids with phones and shit I can't afford, and I make double the average wage in this county.
Anon I've tried several times, for several years.
And she knows my skills with money are stellar, I work 2-3 months per year, last job I had was a year and a half ago and I STILL have money saved up.
I bought a $300 phone just 2 months ago and she was shocked, she couldn't believe I still had that much saved up, and I still have $100 in the bank for her Christmas present.
But every fucking time I try to help her ration her money, every fucking time I say something like "are you SURE you should be spending money on that" she goes off on some retarded "IT'S MY MONEY AND I CAN SPEND IT HOWEVER I WANT" shit, and even when I point out "no, it's the BANK'S money, and you're accruing debt because of it" she goes silent and buys it anyway.

When I was little my sister used to convince me to ask for consoles and shit when I just wanted simpler toys. My parents still bought me the consoles but I'm sure they knew what was going on, after all 4 year old boys usually don't ask for a Playstation and Tomb Raider 2.
I wish I had something like that. Nobody in my family who is self employed knows how to run their company or personal finances well enough to be worth working for.

My uncle had to not pay his employees recently just to make a house note because his dumbass thought his equity is a money tree and lets his wife spend thousands a month on stupid shit.

Don't ask, but my parents were the same with Super Smash Bros. Melee.
I was just below the teen rating at the time so they flipped their shit and never let me play it for a good while.

Man my parents were silly.
I don't understand how you can be a parent and allow your kid to turn into such an ungrateful little shitsack, they've made their nest and they can lay in it the rest of their mediocre, manchild supporting, misreable lives.

You should get back at them and leave them in an especially shitty nursing home during the last years of their lives.

I've tried to get her to feel good about herself because I like to make people happy. She's a really cool person, too, not shallow in the least because she grew up not thinking about appearances. I've known her a few years, and we've been dating about 6 months now. I'll just treat her as an equal, because that's all we are. She's started showing an interest in vidya because of me which is really cool, because nobody I've ever dated has been interested in it. Started playing League of Legends, which is better than nothing. Hoping I can get her into something more enjoyable that we can coop together or something.

They obviously didnt have enough money to buy the game, so they threw a whole party to AVOID buying the game. That way if youd want the game you'd look spoil.

Just tell her "nevermind, I changed my mind." Reverse the victim roles. You'll at least get the satisfaction of letting her know you don't want her anymore. You don't want to be with a chick who isn't sure she likes you or not. It'll just make you feel on edge and insecure. Go try your luck with a different girl and don't dwell on the bad ones.

My mother used to beat me all the time when I was a kid, but well, I was no saint either, I would to everthing again the day after I got a beating.

But even so I loved my mom, she cared about me and my sister like few parents can, I remember the day she got a nintendo 8 bytes for me, around 94 or 96, it was such a happy day.

That was the last console she gave, I worked so I could buy my own games even at the age of 14. On my first day of work my mother cried because I was growing up too fast, she said I would soon leave her behind to live my own life.

In the end she left me behind, she died in 2011 in a car acident, just one week before my sister gave birth to my nephew. Its a strange thing, you go in life always thinking your family will never die before you, it can't happen, not to your family.

I used to think like that until the day death came calling.
are you jesus
Yes. My car was $2500 and the one they bought me was $9000
>>I barely work because I'm a neet but all I use up is toilet paper and food, and I cook every meal for the household.

This part is really true for me. My parents want me to move out but I mean...it'd be the same out there as it is here. I'd only use money for toilet paper, food, electricity, internet, which I already help pay for.

Why does American culture want you to shove out your kids early as possible? I'm never having kids but if I were I would love (provided they're not shitheads) if they stayed with me, assuming they pitch in and help keep things running of course.
They claimed I stole it to the bank and they backcharged it. They found out only a couple days later so there was time. I also recieved a juvenile record because they had to report it to the police for the bank to accept it. Needless to say my account recieved a very angry message from the server owner.

But damn my life took a turn for the worse after this
People love their debts
i actually remember that game
Because they want to fuck like rabbits and don't realize they're going to get tired of eachother very quickly.

As I feel bad for the girl, you don't have to be apart of that drama you know.
Probably took out a loan or something to pay for it, did you ever hint you'd buy your own car to replace it?

what's got your panties in a bunch, Anon?
I knew they didn't take out a loan, because my family is actually very well off. And I originally bought the car as a second, weekend car for me (since it's an 80's sports car), but then I fell in love with it and want to drive it all the time, so I feel it's unnecessary to have a second car that isn't as fun.

Why does this happen so often? Not even Moms, just in general.

>barely work because I'm a neet

Do you understand what NEET means?

And regardless, after you're 18 your parents have no legal obligation to you. Perhaps you should put yourself in their position and realize that they're real people too with lives of their own and maybe after 18+ years they would like to have their own space and privacy
Lying implies they knew the truth to begin with. They were wrong, they didn't know they were wrong, so they didn't lie, they're just diluted. But a broken clock is right twice a day, so every so often they hit the nail on the head and have a egotistical circle- jerk over how smart and accurate they are.

Doesn't have anything to do with what you say but holy shit I love that picture so much.
Out of curiosity, what kind of things WERE you allowed to play with, if Bugs Life was "too mature"?
I was really lucky with my father, even though we were poor as shit because he got into a car accident and lost his really high-level job at some software company he wasn't disconnected from me like it seems so many Anon's parents were. He treated me like a fucking human being, respected my intelligence, and didn't pull stupid shit. We're both really similar and we're both depressed bastards, but we still have each other.

Fuck my mother, though. She's an alcoholic drug-addict bitch and I'm glad my father won the custody battle.

I honestly hadn't thought of this, but it still seems dumb. You don't go to Barnes and Noble to buy candy bars, you go there to buy books. The intent of the gift card is still defeated.

Besides, checkout line snacks in non-grocery stores always jack up the prices, meaning you won't get that many petty snacks out of a cheap giftcard.
You dad is an ass m8 should have been proud of you stepping up.
Pretty much my life. Never often got what I wanted, but my sister still somehow grew up spoiled despite neither of us always getting what we wanted.

Seriously what the fuck. Now she dates guys for their income.
Gf lives with her mom (21), because she has an 8 month old and I can't support the 3 of us.

The moment I can that's exactly what I plan to do, and my gf fully intends to cut her mother off completely. Until then, though, we're playing nice.

Dont think of deviantart, think rich people in galleries looking at overpriced shit and trying to out-erudite eachother by pretending they know shit. Its actually a really good job if you manage to get popular in the circlejerk scene.
