>300 USD in a children's bag
That doesnn't include the 83 USD she spent on school supplies.
Children are expensive.
>he didn't own a randoseru as a child
Yeah, randoserus are expensive.
But they are a tradition, sort of like hardshell reflective bags here in germany and I hear some place else loves Freitag (recycled material bags) or Fjallraven.
Leather, the traditional aspect, and high quality of other pieces in it, make them expensive.
But they last forever if taken care of, so people can buy them used for cheaper, and at least they will last, at least, the whole 6 years of primary education.
it builds character.
Only the best for my daughteru Kanna
>not buying your daughter the cute things she deserves
Yeah, plus there's the one-upmanship aspect. You don't want the gossip to be that you're the bad mommy that picked the cheap bag. Like everything else in the Japanese school system, it's about posturing, face-saving, and passive-aggression.
I enjoyed that though. My old bookbag had some tire trim in the bottom and I also had to carry several tools because PC Support and those 25lbs science books, math tools and art supplies making it easily weigh 150lbs.
Shit was fun to drop because when it hit the ground the entire room got quiet from the thud.
I carried my pens and shit on a Ziploc bag.
I thought it was smart and cool, turns out they don't hold that well against the sharp ends of things.
Funny, in our school it was mandatory to have everything on a binder with tabs.
>just one binder for elementary and middle school
>one folder for high school
WHAT THE FUCK THIS TRIGGERS MY OCD
Aren't these backpacks supposed to last for like 6 years, though? Compare that to Americans buying their kids a new $30 backpack every year after it gets ripped up.
>tfw used the same shitty ripped up backpack daily from 6th grade until I dropped out in the 11th
I still have it, I'm surprised it's lasted this long
>that one kid who use a metallic pencil case and made a shit ton of noise every time it flew off his desk
>Is that how you are going to school? No midriff? No kneesocks? You are 10 years old now. Act like it.
>No, you are not getting a mobile phone. People use those to shitpost.
>No, you are not making a facebook account. Jesus Christ, what's wrong with you?
>Is that a poster of a 3D boy hanging on your wall? You are grounded.
>I've been going through your internet history, and there are 47 ways in which you are living your life incorrectly. We need to talk.
But what if it's $300 for a canvas bag?
Hmm.. I bet her classmates will be top jelly. I like that you make an attempt to dress your daughter nice instead of the standard cheap Kohl's shit everybody gets their kids.
Just make sure she doesn't lose it.
>$83 in stationary
Fuck. memories of back to school day are coming back to me.
>Actually paying with credit card
It really is 2017.
Looking through amazonJP reveals most of them are made of "Clarino", which google says is a synthetic leather material.
They still have the audacity to sell some of them for up to 60k yen, laughable at fucking best.
>>Actually paying with credit card
>It really is 2017.
It is only because they are in a department store. Had they been in the shopping arcade they probably can't use card.
Wait, I just realized we are telling him to reverse search, when we should be affirming his stupidity because apparently he doesn't know what filenames are.
Yes, you're stupid. Read the fucking filenames.
>not using smartphone to pay with
The nukes must have blasted them 10 years behind consistently.
>i spent that time taking a screenshot and highlighting the button when it was literally right there in front of me
I knew I shouldn't spoonfeed but I did it anyway. I'll go kill myself now.
Reminder than Lucoa can molest all the shotas she wants and then wipe their memories and get away with it.
Personally, if I was loaded, I would spend it on boots and watches but I'm guessing if you buy $300 t shirts you probably do that as well.
/fa/ is my guilty pleasure board but I'm not /fa/ myself
>mfw I spent almost the same ammount in my niece backpack.
Kids are expensive.
More news at 11.
Perfect match for ugly little black girls.
Not him, but by my second semester in college I used to just bring my morning newspaper to class folded up so I could stick handouts in it, attach pens to it, and doodle notes in the margins.
This might be news to you, anon, but some people have the kind of income where a single expense of 300 dollars is really meaningless.
Those people need to spend some money, so that the economy can remain stable. They are not dumbasses. They are just better off than you.
Yeah I'm sure to the parents of every little jap kid in school a $300 bag purchase is meaningless.
I make plenty of money, I've got over 70 grand just in savings for anything I want or need. That doesn't mean I don't think it's retarded to go out and blow $300 on a yard of fabric stitched in a square.
>400 burgers for a t-shirt
This is insulting.
That's not cool at all. My daughter will get something that's actually practical and won't look like shit after a few scratches.
Pic related, all you need for school. Everyone will think you're a badass who doesn't have time for organization or proper stationery.
Of course, I wouldn't have turned down a randoseru.
I like your style, traveling light is the way to go
You don't need to go full autism
I don't see how, walking between classrooms only takes a minute or two, rather than go through the trouble of slinging it and taking it off every time I'd just grab it walk and drop it.
All the fucking randoseru cost hundreds of € and they're mandatory for some schools.
Why the fuck can't nips just give kids classic Invicta or some simple shit, it's not like they need professional accessories.
Yep, I still used the same bag from 6th grade as my backup at 9th and it was just a cheapo synthetic one that barely fit all my books. Americans being wasteful is nothing new.
Does Kobayashi make mad dosh at her job or something? Surprised she can afford all this, not to mention she has a huge apartment in Tokyo.
The "joke" here that bag cost 300 USD because.... why.
See receipt is the center of frame, the price is intentional.
thats more than enough when you dont frivolously spend.
Surprising that they haven't subsidized that yet
If they want to get their population back on track they're going to have to make it easier for millennials to have kids since we're poor and useless as a whole.
The bags are required, you can not have a bag you like, so then you come into the problem of if its required and you cant have a different one, then why would you make the bags cheap?
pencils, pen, rulers, protractors, 5 notebooks all 5 subject, scientific calculator, eraser, highlighter, sticky notes, cloth book protectors, folders, fuck loads of folders, loose leaf paper, graph paper, permanent markers, fine line markers, then a stationary holder, and to finish it all off, 2 trapper keepers for first part of the day and second part.
in total, over 100$ was required almost yearly at my school as a recurring cost of materials.
What backwards shit-kicking hickville do you live in? I'm in the middle of nowhere in Burgerland and most of the stores around here have new scanners that accept Android and Apple payment systems.
>implying the "nice" in "nice clothes" didn't refer to the overall quality and aesthetic of the piece
You'll never be effay, anon.
>insulting tricky Rick
No anon, the nigger is you.
randoseru are beautiful works of traditional craftsmanship. the day a japanese grade school student receives his randoseru is a major life milestone, and the randoseru serves as a tangible memento of the carefree times of his childhood.
i can understand if you just don't know what a randoseru is, and why it is costly, or if you don't grasp what it means as a rite of passage. but if you did know those things and you would deprive kanna of this experience just to save a few thousand yen, then you are truly heartless.
I thought it was called the land of the free, not the land of the commie pinkos.
