I just got a zune off of ebay that was used and I got it for 135 dollars. The guy had like 300 100% positive responses and he said he had only used it like 3 times. He had like 5 other zunes on ebay. I payed for this with MY OWN F*CKING money that I worked for last week taking care of my neighbors house when they were gone and the money I already had. I tell them that I got it and that it was slightly new and refurbished and she starts throwing a fit about how I spent this much on a used MP3 player and how I could have waited until Christmas when it was on sale new or whatever. She went on to say that she hopes that it gets lost on the way to my house so I learn the true value of money. She seriously won't leave me alone and I know shes just trying to make me feel guilty. But its already bought and I don't think I made a mistake. Its just getting annoying. I don't know why she cares how I spent the money I work for.

Do you guys think that what I did was ok? Because I don't see any fault in it. They said I could go on ebay and look for one as long as I had the money for it and now shes yelling at me and throwing some f*cking fit.

EDIT: I know it isn't because she bought me it for christmas becuase she already bought me a pretty expensive guitar for jazz band earlier this year and I don't think she'd buy me another really expensive thing.

(plus why in the hell would they say I could go on ebay and look for an mp3 player if they had bought me one for christmas?)

She's pissed because you should have gotten an iPod.

That, or she bought you a Zune for Christmas and knows you don't want 2.

I don't see anything wrong with what you did. It's your money, and you should be able to spend it any way you want. Maybe your mom will quiet down when it comes in safe and in good working condition.

Just be a smartass and tell her her brain is smaller than yours. If she smacks you or something, ask her what it feels like to hit a man. Then tell your dad you saw her making out with the neighbor.

I don't think Microsoft directly makes PCs just the OS on it . . . then again they might push some of the PC makers around on what to do with them. I'm fairly sure you can go about buying a PC without Microsoft made it. Have fun with the Zune though . . . never used one but they don't look that bad.

they say go looking on ebay so you can let them know which one you liked and wanted. Then when they knew that info they would have gone out and gotten you the new MP3 player.


...well that's the way I see it.

nope, the first time I lost the bid and my dad was there. He said that I could take it from there .

and guys I promise you that oh matter what she was not going to buy me an mp3 player. Trust me, I think I know her better than you guys and there is no way in hell she would spend money on that thing.

I just went to their site, says 190 on my screen.

Yeah, the brown one is 100. But I'm sorry, I can't stand to have a color that f*cking ugly. I usually wouldn't be like this but if I'm going to buy something that I'm going to see that much I don't really care for it to be some sh*t colored brown.

wow, and I just checked again. it says its not available for shipping.

You got a good deal, just ignore her. You should have bought a new brown one for $99 a while back. They were selling the brown ones cheap because nobody bought them and they had lots of extras. I don't think you can get it that cheap any more.

Maybe she's got a point there but shouldn't have said things like that.

Your mom said look for, not buy. It's pretty obvious she was expecting if you found something, you would talk with her about it. Then she would talk you out of it by finding something wrong.

That was a terrible error in judgment on her part. Maybe she thought she could get away with not telling you that she, or some other family member had already bought you one. It would be even worse, if she had suggested it to another family member who bought you one.

Maybe she thought you wouldn't have enough money to buy one. Maybe she thought you'd look at them and really wish you had one. Then when you opened that gift, you'd really be pleased.


The only fault I see in what you've done is to make it clear that your relatives will never be certain what they can buy you as a present for Christmas. MANY people are SMART enough to not buy anything important. They save their money for after the holidays or spend it on others.

You may have just doomed yourself into getting sweaters and socks from all your relatives for Christmas in the future. They know you're not going to buy those for yourself. If you see no fault in that, I see none in what you've done.


Now that you've gotten the "Shut up" "fucking fit" and "why in the hell" out of your system, maybe you can mellow out enough to make peace with your mom.

True, she's a real piece of work, that ungrateful bitch. She got the opportunity to carry you in her body for 9 months, change countless diapers, make sure you were fed, bathed, clothed, and loved for years. And now she's getting all upset because she made a few mistakes on what she and others should get you for Christmas.


But try real hard to find some love for her, anyway.
