When I was 12, if I wanted anything over $40 or so that I didn’t need but explicitly wanted, I had to do chores, wait, and save my money until I had enough to purchase whatever it is I wanted (or, alternatively, ask for it as a birthday/Christmas present). It took time, but earning something was a great feeling.
My brother “needed” new Xbox headphones so he could shout at his friends at 3am again and you know what? My mom just decided to give him $80 headphones. He doesn’t need to earn anything and doesn’t understand why I’m a bit peeved at him. We aren’t a family made of money. And what 12 year old needs $80 headphones?? Ugh.
I want to swim in this song today.
if you locked your boyfriend and your dog in a trunk for a week and then opened it the boyfriend would probably be pissed but the dog would be happy to see you also known as reasons why dogs are better than boyfriends
