I might not be posting for a while

So my parents took away my iMac which I paid for (ya I know they're my guardians so legally they can do this) because they are upset that I stayed up to 11:00 on a sunday night doing homework. I'd been playing Galactic Battlegrounds all day and they were not impressed with my use of time. Whatever. I mean first of all it was 11:00, second of all I don't have to wake up till 8:00, and third, I'm a straight A student. So I might not be around for awhile unless I post at school which is a real waste of time.

    "G4Dude was a hero to some, but he never meant shit to me..."







    Stand proud, and forever take it to The Man.



    Explain to your parents that you doing homework at 11:00 is a lot cooler than the stuff you COULD be out doing at that hour.



    Then duck.

    Yeah Man you have to come at your parents with some different angles.



    You're more mature know and responsible(straight A's) Implore with them to "unleash" themselves and give you a little more freedom.



    Parent's can tend to "Ball and Chain" their kids..especially when they're doing good because they perceive their actions as working rather than you just doing the "right thing"



    Sit down and have a mature conversation with them. Even if they say no...you've taken a large step towards communicating like an Adult.

    G4Dude, I hope your parents take your computer away more often. This thread is becoming an instant classic - like Ovaltine.

    I'm sorry, but I have to agree with your parents.



    If you were my kid and were playing that god awful, piece of crap game all day long, I'd take away your computer as well.

    :cool:
