    My parents are being total a holes and won't give me the cash i need to buy a Wii, even though i already told them i would work for the money. They say its a waste of hard earned money. I'm sure you can all agree with me that its the farthest thing from a waste of money.

    Any ideas how i could accrue such an amount of cash?

    I've had 2 ideas so far, the first would never work so i won't even say it, and the second is simple.... steal it.

    Ideas/comments/questions?????????????????????

    Have you applied to any of these places? have you tried to get your GED?

    i'm trying to avoid getting a real job at all costs. So please lets steer away from any "job" ideas at this point.

    What the hell do you do all day?

    At 26 you should probably stop thinking about stealing things and start thinking about getting your life together.

    in response, work for THEM around the house, like paint jobs, type, whatever, you know, i'd probably never actually do the work, it was just a ploy to get money.

    Wow. Ok, so for ways in which to avoid getting a job and yet get a wii. Two things here, avoiding the job, and getting the wii. You're 50% of the way there. You don't have a job. Never had one. Well done, that's difficult for someone your age to have accomplished.

    The second, getting a wii with no money. First of all, stealing a wii is a terrible idea. The only plus I can see in this approach is that you'll finally have your own place. It may be small and cramped, but no more living with your parents. However you will most likely be raped weekly in the shower by other prisoners. You can put this into the pro/con category yourself, I can't speak for ya there.

    The means I would suggest are asking family members to chip in together for a gift, like for your birthday, or for Christmas. Better yet, do this. Make a deal with your parents. You get your GED (and I highly suggest you do this), and they'll buy you a wii. You graduate, and you get a wii. Seems like a reasonable deal to me. Can't hurt to ask, and it certainly can't hurt to get your GED. Worst they can do is say no.

    I appreciate the attempted pep-talk, but a little history if you don't mind........

    I was married at 22, kid at 22-1/2, wife left me with the kid and i moved back with my parents since, have not been able to get back on my feet since. I wish it was that easy. Now, please, a little help?

    Now, THAT was a pretty good idea. As much as getting my GED sounds like total hell, this is a pretty decent idea. Thank you for the thought.

    MAny thanks. Here's my other idea, go door to door collecting money for the kids, you know like those other dudes do, and see how long it takes me to get my wii, i think it could happen in a matter of days.

    I GOT IT!

    You know those people that sit on the street corner with a sign that says something like 'Give me money I'm a broke bum'... this should work! All you have to do is get a piece of cardboard and a magic marker! Some people even give you food! Damn... what an awesome idea.

    Better yet... if you play the guitar you can take it with you.. then you don't even need a sign. You just strum away on your guitar and have a hat in front of you. People should put some change in the hat... 1 month later and you should have enough money for a Wii!
