so my 16th birthday was about a month ago and i plainly said what i wanted....

my parents said i might not get anything ANYTHING for my 16th birthday because of the state of the economy and my dads job....now...my band (or at least me being in it) is hanging on wether i can get this amp and guitar...so am i selfish or do i have a right to be pissed?

btw....were not poor, very far from it, we dont live paycheck to paycheck....mere totally fine..idk what their problem is..they are paranoid...

Wait, your band depends on you getting a new amp and guitar. I don't think so. Play with what you have. Buy a cheaper on Craigslist. Sympathize with your parents. They love you, and want to make you happy. If they don't have the money, they don't have it. Deal with it.

Or maybe you could get a job...?

Im sure if your parents are worried about money, theres more to it than you know.

They're right to be worried, but at the same time it's not selfish to want things...

If it's that big of a deal, get a job.

I think that's very selfish.

The economy sucks right now and we haven't even hit the worst part of it yet, more layoffs are coming the next year, a lot more, seriously, their future is a bigger deal than your band. And it doesn't matter if you're poor or not, both my parents make 6 figures and we're still cutting back, my parents are also paranoid seeing as they've lost a ton of money from their investments in stocks, real estate, that have crashed in the last year, and the impending slump that is only getting worse.

You are a very selfish child, You know there is a cholera epidemic in Africa somewhere? you probably didn't know because you were to busy bitching and whinging to you parents. They reckon 600 people have died in the epidemic, Some kid is probably sitting at home crying cause his mom isn't ever gonna come home. don't complain about not getting a guitar and amp for your birthday. Full-F**king-stop.

How many people get a guitar and amp for their birthday? That's $1,000 dollar range, most people don't get 1/10 of that.

Your brother needed his trombone for a class in school, I'm assuming, and you don't. Live with it.

Too harsh. I bet you've complained about something that annoyed you before as well. And I bet it wasn't as serious as cholera in Africa.

TS, I think perhaps your parents are telling you they are better off than they really are so as not to worry you. Mine do that to me. Talk to them about the trombone. I don't really think that part's incredibly fair.

Seriously though. Just suck it up and say "I understand". If you guys are really so well off, I'm sure they'll make it up to you.

Man, first of all, why would you join a band while waiting on gear?? That right there is selfish for not thinking of the bandmates. A new guitar AND amp, is gunna cost, and getting both for your birthday is probably pushing it, especially when the economy is in the sh¡tter.
#35

Yes, your right. I am truly sorry TS.

Edit: Yes, I have complained about stuff that isn't that serious, but the difference is that I calm down after an hour or so. TS has been going on about it for a month. What I meant with my post is that next time he thinks his life is so bad he should remember that half the world lives in third world countries. I didn't get what I wanted for my birthday, But I didn't come and post a thread about it, nor am I still complaining. The apology however still stands.

Also, TS what date is your birthday, mine was roughly a month ago, we may be on the same day?
