    how hard...

    was it to get your wii?...i went to other forums and find out this student got a wii from his parents for getting good grades. Well to get my wii i begged my parents for a wii and it was 2 months past my birthday and said that i would pay for it. Just to get a permission to buy a wii.

    whats your story?

    Starting around early November to early December I would phone in to various stores to check and see if they had any consoles in. Unfortunately I didn't have any luck finding one. However my parents had purchased it earlier on for my brother and I and gave it to us at Christmas...

    So other than the 15+ phone calls I made it wasn't that hard since my parents had purchased it for us.

    I use to the money I earned at my job and bought it with 5 games extra controller and nuchucks and also some Wii points. You have to be a little independent and stop asking your mummy for money or her to buys you things and earn it.

    See I made it my own! RELIGION *whoosh* wow a 50 page thread bout how there beliefs are right and you are all wrong wow. Oh do want to be different rep! even if I don't help it seems to happen a lot here

    Very hard
    I had to get dressed
    Go outside
    Wait for the buss
    Get on the buss
    Sit next to someone I dont know
    Get off at the shopping center
    Walk to game
    Hand over my preorder slip
    Wait for them to get it
    Put my card in the slot
    Put in the number with my fingers extended
    Then I got it

    Fun version
    I packed my sack with the usual items witch where
    My 100hp drink
    My maxed out DeathKitanna
    Put on my armor all maxed out
    Went out of my domain killing the dragon on the way
    Killed a few low level peons
    Got on the carriage
    Maimed the person sat near the window
    Carriage was attacked (damn random fights)
    Killed the peons
    Went and met the boss (strman lv100)
    He was surrounded by lower level peons (about lv50 each)
    I played my Card of credit
    They died the strman took little damage
    So I drew my maxed out DeathKitana
    and said BANKAIIIIIIIIIiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
    Insert loads of flashy shite here
    Struck him down
    Received the wii
    Ending was the journey home Credits rolled TBC at the end

    I waited in line in late October to preorder it for about an hour and half. It was paid off by the time the release came around so I just went in at midnight and picked it up. Of course I walked away with a smug smile as other people came in asking if they could get one, but were turned away.
