So in a few days I'm heading back to school as I know a lot of you are. But my parents have told me that when I go back my laptop will be taken from me. As I need it to help me finish a lot of my work and for some general use I would appreciate any suggestions on how I could convince them to let me keep it through the year.

So Pit. Any suggestions?

Tell them you need it for work and general use.


Thats the thing. I have on several occasions but it hasn't helped at all.

Edit: And I will need the internet.

I say, use your hands, that way you can hold onto it very effectively.
An Augmented 4th or a Diminished 5th?

Why are your parents concerned about you using a laptop? Just tell them you need it for school work and that if they take it from you then they're idiots.

You could try doing a sad face?

I'll be serious here.
Just tell them there's a lot of work that you need to do that can only be done on computer. If they still say no, then they obviously don't care about your life and are heartless bastards, tell them that btw, it'll work

The thing is I have told them all this but to no avail. I know it seems insane but they're stuck in a different time zone... They think everything I need is in my schoolbooks, etc.

Well, just don't do the work. When they get pissed off about this, throw the laptop thing back in their faces.

You can:

A.) Explain to them that work is only going to get more and more paperless
B.) Rat out to your mom that your dad keeps all of his porn on there and that this is the only reason he wants to keep it at home
C.) Do a ba--

Faptops are important things to have.

Ha, sucks to be you, I don't have overly strict parents that listen to news reports on how certain things in this generation are destroying society.

We use laptops at school every day, in every class. It's mandatory, more or less.


...Tell them it's mandatory.
