Re: Why kids (sometimes) shouldn't have nice things...
Well, they did technically buy them with the money they earned, we just skipped the middle man and exchanged straight up for what they did (we were going to pay them but they wanted iPod Touch's so we just made the process easier). To be honest though, i don't think even the exchange of money from their hand to a store would have saved these poor things, both of them bought Xbox 360 games with their own earned cash and they are all destroyed as well. I think they are just careless unfortunately, lol. But hey, ain't my kids!

It still works like a champ too!

They actually have cases on them! They are these cheap little rubber cases, but cases none the less. I'm thinking though, based on the damage, these cases were bought to cover up the atrocious damage done to them, and not to actually protect them FROM damage, LOL! They really don't have respect for the stuff these days though, electronic toys were few and far between when i was a kid all the way until i moved out, and i took care of the stuff as if my life depended on it. Their entertainment units in their bedrooms rivals what i had only like 5-6 years ago, and they are teenagers! WTF? Oh well, spoiled rotten brats...gotta love them, hard headed and all.
