recently I have asked my parents to buy me a ps4, and as always when I ask for something new that is a little expensive I get struck down with sayings like "you should be grateful that..." etc. We are not poor in any sort of way, and I haven t gotten a single cool thing for my birthdays since my 11th birthday, im 17 now. Im successful at school and im going to an academic officer program. When I get 18 and finish my school im bound to get out of the house. Are my parents just waiting for it to happen? To just get rid of me? I am not some spoiled kid that asks for every new iphone, I have an old htc phone, the point is, I RARELY ask for things, and when its some technologic gadget or game I get denied immidiately. It s been going on for years now. A couple months ago I tried asking for a new (very cheap) gaming pc as my current laptop can barely run a couple tabs on google chrome, and I was denied too, so I understood that a gaming pc might cost too much so I tried settling for a ps4, and surprisingly was also denied.
