We want your Wii!
« on: March 24, 2009, 11:32:42 PM »
BG/ Mr Breeze's brother lives on a popular island resort and has been back on the mainland recently for some work related training.  We didn't hear from him the entire 6 weeks he was here, until...

It was his last weekend before returning and we received this phone call.

Bro Hey Mr Breeze.  You guys have a Wii don't you?
MB -  Yes we do.
Bro Well can I borrow it?  I want to play Mario Party and you guys are the only people I know that have the system and the game.
MB Sorry, we don't lend out our game systems.
Bro Aw, that's not fair.  You should lend it to me, it's my last weekend here.
MB Sorry, we just don't lend out our game systems.
Bro But I told my friends I could get us one to play
MB I know you can rent them from the video store for around $60
Bro Aw, but that's too expensive!!!
MB How many of you will there be?
Bro 4 it's not like we'll break it, we'll be careful.
MB Well $60 split between 4 is $15 each.  If they want to play, surely they can chip in.
Cue more whining from his brother about how it's unfair, he's being mean etc.  Once he realised Mr Breeze was not caving, he ended with a huffy "Fine" and that was that.  Conversation ended, goodbyes said, phone was hung-up.

I am so very, very proud of him.

Kudos Mr Breeze.

That will teach the brother to promise the use of someone else's property.

Bringing up that you are about to leave town does not encourage me to lend you my things.   It just makes me more worried about losing my property.   

I'll get there.  Eventually.

Well, it doesn't hurt to ask. I don't think a lot of people realize that the Wii is not the super portable system the Game Cube was. You could lend that thing to a friend & they could kick it across their living room with no harm done. The Wii, not so much.

Good for Mr. Breeze for standing up to the wheedling, though. Wheedling is uncalled for.

Go, Mr. Breeze!!!  I might have added, "You're welcome to play it at OUR house," but that might have gotten a "no" as well, because it's inconvenient.

True. I'd never lend out my Wii, even to a relative for this reason. It's too small and lightweight.
