Selling Wii, Need help convinving my mother (ha ha) - June 27th 2009, 10:34 PM

Basically ive had a WII for 2 years, played it for the first 2 months, played it the odd days, absoutley pointless for the past 1 year 6 months, A little while ago i asked my mum (as it was a present) if she would mind me selling it, She said no she was going to buy wii fit for it and play and use it, It never happened, im buying a PS3 and am trying to make 300 and the WII could be a big part of that, i can make a total of 140 off of it, te rest i have in cash or plan on making by selling some stuff on ebay, anyway i asked her if she minded, i explained how we never use it (she tried to use the same excuse) and i said
"well you never will and its useless and i may aswell put the money towards something that i will use alot more than that"
she said
"mmm"
i said
"You havent bought wii fit or anything for it in the past 6 months, and you put it in my room and i dont use it, i would rather buy a PS3 and actually use it"
she said
"ill think about it"


its 2 days later and i found the excahnge to be more than if i sold it, i cant buy the PS3 yet as im like 40 off the price (includin if i traded the WII in), i want to trade it in before the trade price goes down, and i know that shes planning a "no!" so im thinking me of saying

"if i sell it now, and you miss it and want to play on it again and feel like you miss it, me and my brother will split the money and buy you a new one for christmas" then its hers and she can do what she wants with it.

I also know if i catch her on the wrong moment she will just say no or "Stop bringing it up!" so i need a time when shes relaxed and i can have my say without her stressing out.

Im 18 its my WII and its doing my head in the fact im not aloud to do what i want with it.

Sorry its a long post, Any help please


I know it sounds bad but meh i need help and this is always a good place

Hi Robin

Wiis arent that great. I was given it as a presentm used it for a week, then left it there for almost a year. In the end I decided to swap it because my pool table got in the way & since I play pool & not Wii - I traded my Wii for an LG Viewty & Ipod Touch. Im 23 & still scared of what will be said if they found out my wii was gone....in that way I can completely understand where you are coming from.

Wish I could help you, but like you said its your life, your 18 & its your wii.

Just try to be honest. Honesty is the best policy

Yer, Its a real pain because its in my room aswell, so i get to stare at it thinking how a sleek PS3 could be there, Yer im going to comfront her tommorow morning (Shes a morning person) and just tell her straight, I should probably say (if it isnt resolved) that im selling it as it is mine in the nicest way possible.

Cheers for the advice, keep it coming

Robin
