Thread: Things that drive you nuts?

    I watches a Vader case of Vintage Figures sell, about 20 in there, nothing rare, no weapons or anything. But it went for well more than I was willing to give, ($150) He takes the item, goes back to to a group of kids (5-8 yrs old?) and they start playing with them right there.

    I have seen this many times, might not be a Star Wars Toy, but something thats worth a lot more than something a kid should be tearing up.
    I see nothing wrong with that. If a person wins the auction in a legal way, and chooses to give a toy to a kid, rather than to drive me nuts, it would make me happy. Toys are meant for kids, and for kids to play with them. They were willing to buy the item to make a kid happy and that gesture is invaluable.The fact some people choose to buy toys for personal gain is totally different. Seeing scalpers at a store, for instance, buying whatever Star Wars action figure or Hot Wheels they can find to later on auction them off and make a quick buck,while depriving a young collector or kid from getting to them, that in fact drives me nuts.

    I've actually seen two hot wheels collector get into a shoving match over a car. In the store....kinda goofy adults fighting over toys.Reminded me of the cabbage patch craze.

    They probably have a business of some kind.

    I had a LARGE collection of MISB vehicles & action figures, which had never seen the light of day.... then I had a daughter.

    ("no contest").

    one day we opened them ALL, like Christmas Morning, and *gasp* played with them. I filled 3 trash bags with all the discarded packaging... and my daughter grew up with a giant rubbermaid bin FULL of SW toys.

    ("worth it").

    Sadly people go crazy here when they call for any snow. They'd never make it up north.

    Parents who show favoritism. I have one friend, a guy, who I'd known for three years before I knew he had three daughters. He can't stop talking or posting about his son. One day there were three little girls in one of the pictures. I didn't think anything of it until they showed up again a few days later. I asked him who they were and he said, "Oh, those are my daughters." I asked a follow-up question and all he talked about was his son. It was another year before I knew their names, or saw a glimpse of them in another picture. Another friend is the same way about her daughter. On the rare occasions when she mentions him, it's as "the boy," and everything he does is a disappointment. I had family growing up who behaved the same way. Several cousins are still in therapy over it.

    People who hold grudges when they're the ones at fault. We were in a carpool with my daughter's one friend a few years ago. Her parents weren't the most reliable or considerate people and we ended up dropping out of it. The dad was furious and left a few angry messages. I saw him last night for the first time in a couple years. He gave me an angry look and walked away, then had his daughter come over and call me a b****** (she came back and apologized later). Similarly, two weeks ago I ran into a guy who used to be one of my closest friends. I haven't seen him in over ten years and he quit communicating with me 8-9 years ago. He made a real *** out of himself one night when led to a big falling out with not just me but several other friends as well. When I ran into him, he refused to talk to me unless I apologized for what he did all those years ago.

    Had same thing happen with me. Had a very close friend who was going to be my best man in my wedding. He starts dating a girl we both knew at the time and she started rumors about me. He decided to believe her, never tried to talk to me about it. Never even asked one question, just took her word for it. Well because of it haven't talked to him in over 15 years. Hope he thought it was worth it.
