Bargin
« on: March 20, 2008, 10:03:11 AM »
I call it a bargain; the best I ever had. (who can name the song that's from btw?)

So I approached my parents a couple days ago about getting a Wii (all I have is a ds). They weren't cool about it at first, but I talked to them yesterday about it again. We were able to come to a compromise. You see, I've been having a little trouble with my Latin class. The bargain is that if I'm able to memorize the 300 most frequently used words in the Latin language (or try really hard), my parents will let me get a Wii on the last day of school.

Anyone else pulled of a bargain like this? Discuss.

My dad always has his way, there's no bargaining with him :[

Mom is more flexible, it is possible to compromise with her sometimes.

That's how it was with my dad too. He didn't want me to spend that kind of money. Then my mom reminded him how much money he spent on his used klipsch speakers. He just smiled and said, "Oh ya..... I forgot about those."

My dad bought himself some hi-tech back massager for $400.



And never used it.
