Christmas Ruined =(

Today I ruined my Christmas.

Whilst searching for my jacket, I happened to stumble upon every christmas present on my list, tucked neatly into the corner of the closet. While this wouldn't be a bad thing, since it A) confirms I'm spoiled (is that good?) and B) I know I got everything I could possibly want. On the other hand, it also means Christmas won't be exciting now.

The other thing is that my parents bought EVERY thing on my list.... And my list wasn't cheap either. I don't know, maybe they were pleased I was asking for bike parts versus a game system. For reference, this is what I found.

Mavic Speedball R
Avid Juicy 7 (Front and rear, 185mm and 160mm respectively)
Selle Italia Thoork Gel Flow
Bonty Race X Lite Bar and Stem
And some Eggbeaters for my 2100

BF's is filled with old people, right? What makes you guys buy this crap for your kids?

In b4 gb2/bed, lol kid, spoiled, ur posting dis to shoa off (not entirely false), etc.

There is only one way, and one way only to deal with this situation. You must confront your parents, look them in the eye and say....and I quote


"Mom, Dad I love you. And I know how much you love me but unfortunately I saw what was in the closet. I am truly touched and warmed to my core with your love for me. But now that I have seen what was to be kept secret, I can not except these precious gifts from your heart. Please send them to GlennG at bikeforums.net . Oh and also send a Ti Merlin road frameset in 56cm. That is the only way to make this wrong right".

SeventySeven PM me for my shipping address. Later

What makes parents buy these things for their kids?

The fact that the kids don't buy it themselves and nag nag nag the heck out of them till they get it. And then turn around with a grin on their face and admit that they are spoiled.

How about a gift to yourself that would put something in your heart rather than on your bike? How about returning those items and buying warm coats and blankets for those without. Go to the homeless shelter or to a place the homeless frequent and pass them out.

What you get in return is worth way more than any bike parts.

I know because I do it every year. It's really awesome.

I counter!

I volunteer every week at our homeless shelter cleaning it up.

And at the nag nag et cetera stuff, I but my own things usually, including my bikes. The exception is the Fuel. Anyway, I feel as if this is better than the "HELL NAW" I was considering posting.

I guess seeing the grateful faces of the cold and homeless always makes me want to do more.

Good on you for volunteering!! And good for you for buying your own stuff.

Don't say you are spoiled then. You seem like a conscientious young man!!

I buy a lot of stuff, but I also get a lot of stuff. I own a Mac, didn't pay for that. I have over $100,000 in my college fund, and I have a ridiculous amount of stuff that I never use. My parents are (barely) in the top 1% of the US. (I don't live in a mansion before you get that idea though) I don't volunteer out of goodwill, it's becuase I have so much stuff, it would be wrong to do nothing. If I had less money, I'd be sitting on my arse all day.

I'm spoiled, but at least I know it. Acknowledging the problem is the first step to solving it.

BTW

Since your trolling 77, there is nothing on you list that is a big deal. You know how to write a good story but in the end you come thru as a Putz. After looking at your list I realize that there is nothing there I want and nothing there I couldn`t afford on my own. Pretty much no big deal stuff.

Merry Christmas poseur

no u


Kai, I'm going to lie to make me seem more interesting. Tell me if you buy it.

Today I ruined my Christmas.

While looking for my jacket, I stumbled upon a horde of useless junk. I didn't even as for this ****, I mean COME ON! It's total garbage.

The other thing is that my parents bought BARELY ANYTHING on my list.... And my list was super cheap. For reference, this is what I found tucked into the closet.

Trek Session 10
Trek Top Fuel 9.9 SSL
Avid Juicy Ultimate (Front and rear, 205mm and 185mm respectively)
Selle Italia SLR Carbon
Bonty Race xXx Bars and Stem
And some 4ti Eggbeaters for my Madone 6.9 Pro SSL

BF's is filled with old people, right? What makes you guys buy this crap for your kids? Aren't you worried they'll kill you for being such righteous cocks?

Also, I'm not spoiled. In fact, we're pretty poor. [/story]

So, Glen. What made you decide to become an ITG so suddenly?

He, I don't know what makes me a posuer. I don't wear jersey's plastered with logo's I don't get reimbursed for. Not to mention I race occasionaly, so this isn't just stuff that I put on my bike to make it look like I'm hardcore...

Burning down the house is out, but maybe spill some really strong solvent on the hood of the family car or somehting to make them take it all back.

Who said I'm special? Last time I checked, I said I'm spoiled. Fairly different, we're not parsimonious.
