Sure, I could borrow money from my grandparents or parents, but then I have to listen to them bitch. I'd rather not go than listen to people bitch at me over 50 dollars. My grandparents are by far the worst about it. I remember borrowing 5 dollars from them one time and I've still never recovered from how big of a deal it was to them. Before you say they live on a fixed income they don't. They are about as well off as you can get, but incredibly stingy. They started giving us 20 dollars for our birthday instead of a 5 dollar gift. I typically spend 100 on each of them, but they just don't get it. I guess it doesn't matter overall because it is the thought that counts. It is a good reason why I hate christmas. I get nice gifts for people that they will like, and then I end up getting crappy stuff. It isn't even about monetary stuff, it is about the thought that goes into it. I've ordered stuff special just to get something they like and I get a pocketknife from walmart.Originally posted by: atom
Eh, so there was nobody you could have bummed some money off of?
