You just LOST your own mp3 player. You're broke, jobless and wear G Unit teeshirts. I wouldnt let you borrow it either.

You're totally acting emo, too. "Gosh, you won't even do this one favor for me! Wah!" You look really immature, bro.

Btw, $25 for a used half-gig non-iPod MP3 player is a bit of a rip off IMO.

It looks like he wanted to buy a shirt from you, and you wanted to trade it for his MP3 player. He didn't think that was a good trade, and it put him in an adversarial mindset. Not a good time to be asking him to give you stuff. Then when he didn't want to, you tried guilt tripping him into doing what you wanted. That probably irritated him even more.

You negotiated the situation poorly, and this is the result. Let it drop and forget about it.

hes probably an only child or something.

anyway, here's the thing. you havent announced plans to buy a new mp3 player. so it could seem like you're trying to "borrow" this mp3 player but never give it back since he doesn't "need" it and you're too poor to buy a new one. so he wants some money for it so everything's square cause once he lends it to you where's the limit? how can he, with his ipod and you, broke, ask for it back? he would seem like an even bigger dick and it would create an even bigger problem, and even bigger than that is if he wants it back but doesn't want to say so.

also.. you lost your mp3 player. who says you won't do it again? maybe he sees you as a sloppy/clumsy person who is prone to losing things and doesn't trust you to keep track of it, and even if he knows you'd reimburse him if you lost it if you could, he also knows you don't have the money to.

that said, if he was actually your friend he'd let you borrow the thing. he doesn't need it. true friendships go beyond **** like the above 2 paragraphs. but then again true friendships are hard to find so don't go all crazy about it. just be happy with whatever relationship you got and stop pressing buttons.

I haven't even read your post, but just from the title I felt compelled to open this thread and ask if you are actually for fcking real right now. I made a post about personal issues/threads in another, and I don't feel fully regurgitating it now, so here's the gist of it:

No one cares about your problems, so don't post them in a goddamned basketball forum. If you must rely on an online community to discuss issues/problems instead of, you know, real people (family, friends, etc.), at least do it in the off-topic forum.

This will prolly be my last post in this thread because i kno u guys are tired of it but, i jus need to clear up some things said in this thread:

First
U guys said that i wouldnt give it back if he lent me the mp3 player... im not that kind of person to keep someone's possessions if they want it and if u read the convo i said 'jus lemme borrow it until u sell it'

Second
U guys said that he would think that im irresponsible... but again if u read my post u would kno that ive had that mp3 player for 3 years, so im pretty good at keeping things and i jus lost that mp3 player on a misunderstanding with my moms

And Last
I jus wanna get opinions from other people's perspectives cuz here u cant really pick sides so i get unbiased answers...and dont get bent out of shape, there was only one OT thread on the front page that was personal...i could understand if there was 4,5, or 6 but there was only 1, so if u dont like these threads dont click on them... 20 other ppl commented on my situation

so jus let this thread slide down unless u guys got other good points... thx ISH

All right kid, here it is.

That's because it's a fcking basketball forum! The reason you put it in here is because you needed the attention it would garner from being in a forum that gets frequented more than the OT.

Quote:
so if u dont like these threads dont click on them...
Or how about you don't clutter a basketball forum with your petty "problems" (if this is your biggest "problem" then you're doing pretty well for yourself)? Yeah, that'd work, too.

So then jus a couple days ago he asks me if he can have one of my shirts for 5 bucks and then i was jus like i'll give it to you if u let me borrow ur mp3 player until I get a new one, so then he's like "no jus buy it from me for 25 bucks". And i was like "Then jus let me use it until u sell it because u dont even use it and u werent looking to sell it anyways".
You're acting like this dude owes you something. It's his stuff, he can do whatever the hell he wants to with it.

Quote:
And here's the thing: Im broke as fcuk and he knows that and he already has a job and can pay for things already.
You have got to be shtting me here.

So because this dude works harder than you and has an actual employer, he's supposed to do things for you because you don't have a job or money? Here's some real advice, stop acting like a thirteen year old who's had the world handed to them on a platter. Because he's better off than you he should be the hand that feeds?

Ridiculous.

Quote:
And he's supposed to be one of my boys and we always have our core group of guys who play ball. AND he knows that i brought that mp3 player everywhere for 3 years and i always needed music in my ears. So when he did that I was real pissed cuz he's supposed to be one of my best friends and he cant even do this one favor for me.
Do you realize how stupid getting bent out of shape about this is? Have you read this since you typed it? This is primary school drama.

Quote:
So what Im asking you guys is 'Is he the Bad Friend for not even letting me borrow and mp3 player that he doesnt use and he already has and IPod?' or 'Am I the bad friend for expecting him to let me use an mp3 player?'
He's just a guy who doesn't want to lend his sht out to people. Grow up.

Just the very fact that this perturbed you enough to post it on a forum is straight pathetic, although you could definitely argue that me taking time out of my not-so-busy life to unnecessarily rip on you is moreso.
