Lol my purchases are just self-monitored. I'm only (about to be) a HS senior but I have a job and my mom just tells me to monitor my own purchases if it's made with my earnings lol. Sucks to have helicopters, doesn't it? For the iPods, I just didn't want to buy it at that time and I thought I only told the one guy, didn't know that he'd tell his buddies and have them snap up every last one. My fault lol! At least I have this iPad now.Yep, that always happens. I want to get a Black and Slate iPhone 5 32GB new, but my parents (that monitor my purchases and such) won't let me get one because I already have a phone. "It's a collectors item mom, chill out!" Lol. I guess this 4S will do lol.
