Some people are just so....

I was going through the classifieds at QUT Student Guild website ( when I saw this particular ad description:-

Apple Ipod Nano 1GB for sale!
Cost: $199
Description: White colour Apple Ipod Nano with 1GB capacity. An unwanted birthday gift…

Whoa, stop right there.

“Unwanted birthday gift”? I think I have a problem with that statement.

How the fuck can this person be so fucking ungrateful!?

Birthday gifts, regardless of whether it’s a shirt or a CD or a condom, are still a gift from someone that recognises your special day. Even if you already have the same stuff the person gave you (in this case, salesperson has the same or a better Ipod) don’t go and sell it and use the money to buy something you want la! You can give it away to someone who really needs it or make use of the gift but certainly selling a birthday gift and taking the money for your own is simply an insult to that person who gave you the gift.

And even if this person who gave “the unwanted gift” happens to be the most hated person you ever met, unless that person gave you literally shit on your birthday I don’t see how an Apple Ipod Nano is the meanest present that bastard/bitch would give you!

Geez, I feel like taking that Ipod Nano, turn it sideways, and stick it up to that salesperson’s candy ass! © WWE’s The Rock.

Anyway, my point is that one should cherish his or her own birthday gifts, regardless of whether you want the gift or not. Only if you’re a mean-ass, and you’re willing to end any communication with the person who gave you the present, or maybe you really do need the money to pay off your gambling debts, then go ahead and sell it. Not like anyone would buy a second-hand Ipod Nano 1GB that cost just about $20 cheaper than the retail price.

Some ppl just don't appreciate me giving them condoms for their bdays.

Ahahaha...well, maybe that's because you gave them expired condoms?

Funny, I thought that was more expensive than the retail price in Brissy!

Lol...Alynna, you sure about that? $219 is the price for Ipod Nano 1GB according to Apple's aussie website =/
