  1. A few weeks ago, my XBOX crapped out on me. I called Microsoft tech support and was like, "WTF?" and they replied, "Yea... Ur harddrive is prolly broken, pay us $120 to fix it LOL!" I responded with an even louder 'LOL' as I hung up the phone. I sure showed them, but my counter-attack wasn't over. I soon trekked over to my neighbourhood hobby shop, and the guy there claimed he wouldn't only fix my XBOX, but he'd modify it for $150. I thought it sounded like a sweet deal, so that's what I planned to do, all I needed was that kind of cash.

    Awesome news: A local Zellers hired me to work nights restocking shelves! The only thing I had to do was fill out this form with my chequing information. For this, I needed a chequing account; I didn't have a chequing account. Nevertheless, my mom wakes me up the next day and asks, "Want to get your own chequing account yet?" and I'm all like, "Damn straight." We take care of that and I get $243 in my account. Upon leaving the bank, mommy asks me, "What do you think you're spending that dough on?" My answer, "I don't know... Probably gonna get my XBOX fixed--" "NO," mother interupts, "You cannot spend it on that!" "Psssh," I, uh, psh... Indicating that I wasn't promicing anything.

    My plan? While my parents are at work tomorrow morning, I'm hauling my XBOX over to that hobby shop and getting that SOB fixed. I was intending to wait until I legitly earned the money to fix it, but now games like Farcry: Instincts and Doom3: Resurrection Of Evil are out now, and I'll be damned if I ain't playing those ASAP. In my mind, I'm not expecting my parents to notice my XBOX is missing until it's too late. I don't think they have much reason to get angry even if I do get caught; two nights of work will cover the cost, anyway.

      I modified mine with a soldering iron.

      If you send to me, I will modify for free.

      This isn't about money, it's about credit, because that's what I was going to use.

      Anyway, the XBOX somehow made itself work again, so I might take you up on the offer if and when I learn not to use credit.
