    Trust me; as someone who can't drive, you got the better of the deal. Now you can drive your butt to a job and buy the Stingray yourself :D

    Word, Yo. You'll enjoy the bass more when you've worked for it, too.
     
  4. *laughs hysterically*... dude, i already have an 83 Cutlass SUpreme (my "project" car) and a job that pays 20 bucks an hour (only bad thing is, only 4 hrs a week)

    and all the money i make and dont use goes toward the "project car"

    Well now you can use all the "project car" money towards the bass. Besides, the only worthwhile result that will come of you fixing an '83 Cutlas is if you turn it into a spaceship or a time machine.

    Wow, all I can say is wow....
     
  8. aww, your parents didn't buy you a $1300 bass? you poor thing.

    really, kids today. if i asked my mom for a bass costing a THIRD of that, she'd roll her eyes into the next STATE.
     
  9. Yea, i have so many people laugh at me when they know i have a job because they can just go running to mommy and daddy asking for what ever they want even if it is pointless and they will never use it. I have a friend that wanted a guitar, so his parents got him one, and now he CANT find it, and he dosent care!

    I have to agree with the eye rolling, my mom hates that want to spend the money that i want to on my gear, but she seems to think that its her money. I might get a little help from my dad in the money area, but not much.

    So yea, next time you get pissed that your parents wont get you a bass, guitar, anything, just think that you can have it in a short amount of time by getting a job.
