Excuses to get a Pac Designs bag?

I want to get a Pac Designs Street Small bag, but my parents will probably say no because I already have my Chrome bag. I want the Pac because it is not as wide as the Chrome, and it is deeper than the Chrome bag.

What could I use to get the Pac bag?

Beat a(nother) hipster with his own top tube pad until he cries and hands it over.

you could use money?

or you could just whine until your parents buy your spoiled ass another $150 bag. that would be more cost effective since your dignity is already questionable.

either way, good luck!

I would be using my money, but I would need to use my parents credit card to order it. And they won't let me if I already have a good bag.

I bought my Chrome bag with my own money.

If it's a matter of finding a good enough excuse to convince your parents to let you buy a new bag when they've already told you they don't support the decision...have you given any consideration to the fact that they may be older, wiser and right?

I guess I don't really need a new bag, though it would be nice.

If you're really convinced you need a new bag and are too young to be able to get your own credit card maybe look into getting a prepaid card? Not sure how they work as far as age requirements though.

Is it possible Max would be the solid money in a match-up here?

My mistake. Change that to:

Beat a hipster with his own top tube pad until he cries and hands it over, please.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

well then don't i feel a bit presumptuous now!

you can buy prepaid credit cards with cash at some grocery stores. or if you have a checking account, you can hook it up to your paypal or google checkout account and order from some retailers that way (if they accept those payment methods)

if it's your money you should be able to do what you want with it.
