top 5 pastimes of 2013
- thinking about my mistakes
- being yelled at by parents
- crying in a corner
- eating my feelings
- wishing i was sleeping
I’ve never been so grateful for my parents than I was/am today. I generally think of myself as pretty independent from my parents (besides financially lol), but I’m kind of glad I got into this car accident because otherwise I don’t really think I would realize how much I actually need my parents…
you have no idea how depressed this makes me…
holy f***ing crap…
first, my brother wanted a *$150* dollar set of earbuds (which i’ve tested myself, and found to have relatively mediocre sound-quality, but a deafening bass)
NOW he wants a fucking $30 pair of socks. FUCKING SOCKS. it cost like $12 to get SIX pairs of his normal socks! and you know what his argument was? “They look really COOL!” and when i pointed out that that’s a stupid reason to overpay, he claimed they were “high-quality,” which is a phrase he likes to pull out of his ass every time he wants something expensive. he said “it says so on the website!” like seriously, i’m STILL waiting for a SINGLE legitimate point to come from him.
and when i began questioning his arguments, he started yelling that it said so on the site that wanted his to buy them, and started saying to my parents “CAN I PUNCH HIM?? BECAUSE HE JUST *WANTS* TO BE PUNCHED”
that stupid sack of trash is a SPOILED little bi***.
my brother asked for $150 earphones for the holidays. $150. And get this: it’s not even a fancy headset; they’re in-ear buds. why are they so expensive? for something as small as an ear-bud, there’s usually a maximum quality you can cram in there, no matter how much you spend. a while back, i bought myself $50 ones (which is outrageously expensive in my opinion), only because they were on sale for $20, which is about the maximum i would pay anyway. They’re considered one of the best in their class (SkullCandy Titan In-ears), and I’ve found that they’re the best ear-buds i’ve ever had the opportunity to try. i can’t wait to try these $150 ones; i’ll edit in what i think of them.
But why are they so expensive? Well, why are Macs so expensive? exactly: those earbuds have the Beats by Dr. Dre logo on them. my brother so far has yet to even argue that they have good sound quality; he’s only justified his desire by the fact they “look cool”
And here’s the real punchline: my dad got them for him. Early. and it gets better: it’s not even his holiday gift; he’s gonna get another.
$150, down the drain.
and you know what earphones he had before these? another funny story: when i bought myself the Titans, my dad just bought my brother the same ones. my brother didn’t pay a cent. the only reason he’s even warranted new earphones is that he took horrific care of his previous ones; they’re broken and bent out of shape. his earphones before that—fun fact—got dunked in Diet Coke, and went through a drier cycle. i wonder how long it’ll take these to go. any bets?
