You're complaining about your parents not buying it for you when you yourself can't even afford it? I have not once asked my parents to buy me cubes because I know they don't like it. I don't have a paying job so it's hard to come by money but I still manage to have a lot of cubes. This includes paying for taxes and shipping. The only time my family ever spent money on my hobby was when my sister got me a gearball. Before I got into cubing. If you don't have any money I'm sure you have something valuable you can sell. I'm currently short on money (Only $20, I blew$50 on 3 cubes from this expensive toy store, bad decision.) So what I'm doing is going thru my old Pokémon collection and finding prices for them so far, based on my current research (which isn't very much) I have $1300 in cards. My estimate is that I have a total of$5000 dollars worth of cards (one of them is worth $700 dollars alone). And I'm not going to spend it all on cubes (kind of obvious you'd have to be pretty stupid to do that) because I don't want to get to the point where I have to ask my parents to buy me stuff, stuff they don't even like. That's their money and you specifically said saving which is even more absurd to ask for a portion of it to buy a toy. "Savings" money is not spent on toys, it is spent on big purchases, which is the whole reason you need to have savings. Your parents aren't being "mean" or "restrictive" they aren't trying to take away your fun, their just being smart with their money. #### PetrusQuber ##### Member You're complaining about your parents not buying it for you when you yourself can't even afford it?

OP isn’t exactly complaining, or saying their parents are being ‘mean’ or ‘restrictive’, and not everyone has valuable stuff they can sell. It really depends on OP’s life though.

It probably does sound a bit harsh. But I don't like the idea of expecting your parents to buy stuff for you and if they say no then you start complaining or thinking "It's not even that much" etc.

im just a 13 yr old brat, i dont have anything to sell, hell my parents wouldnt like me selling stuff, and i know their not being mean, i know they arent trying to take away my fun even though they sometimes feel like it, just a tiny bit annoying to know that i dont have anything to get what i would like, basically im just waiting until i graduate and can get a job so i can buy the things ive been keeping to myself since 3rd grade

the only times they would 100% say yes to me wanting to buy stuff, is if its linked to me studying, or something sports (a bike and a few balls)

CubingTime claims it's a sport.
