    Yes, but sadly she knows I am loaded..... she was working, she said that she needed loads of spending money though! Her friends family don't have much so I helped out, I'm good like that! :cool:

    Tell her no, the line up is shit this year. Many other festivals that are FAR better and cheaper for her to go to. Unless she goes to get drunk off her face like many many other teeny boppers do.

    If Tatty is happy to sponsor for her daughter's friend, I am not too sure what kind of "repayment" he receives.

    ---

    On a side note -- i find that girls can get their dads to get them pretty much whatever they want but the boys on the otherhand dont get treated as much :shadedshu:shadedshu

    my dad bought my sister so many things but yet if i wanted something similar or the same thing I had to go buy it myself.

    it was hard at first living on crappy £5 a week pocket money, but the tables turned when i was old enough to get a job :) spent a year of doing f**cking chores, kissing ass and beggin my dad to give me money to build a new PC (this was before i got a job) and nothing happend and my hands were all dry n wrinkled from all the dishwashing i did. if my sister asked for something, he wouldnt make her wait a more then a year to get it. why should i?

    but thats how that is in this family. Favoritism isa bitch.

    theres so much internal politics in this family. :banghead::banghead: its a very bad place to grow up. theres no real connection between anyone in this family other then blood. we're all strangers here except for dad n sis. but its funny to watch my sister beg when her laptop n pc goes wrong n my dad cant fix it :) then everyone looks at me and im like "wtf ya'll looking at?!" its funny watching my sis rage when i wouldnt repair her laptop/pc.

    its my personal 'no-fly-zone' I'l repair anyones hardware except for hers because shes a bitch and she talks down to everyone and she treats everyone except for her friends like crap -- she even does it to dad but he just accepts it and showers her with more freebies :p

    man, what an easy life

    Not the case in my household, we all get pretty much the same amount: no pocket money :p

    Its not that my parents never give us money, its just that we rarely need them, and if we do, we can just ask them for some. Money for computer? Well, I got my first computer (laptop) when I came here, because they classified computers as a "necessity".

    One thing I noticed in Asian families is that they favour the child with the best grades, perhaps your sister has been getting better grades than you have?

    Trust me - move out at the first oppurtunity. You'll get on with family soooo much better IMO. I can't remember the last time I argued with my family.

    Oh, I don't have any sisters (by blood), that might have something to do with it too...

    Ive been planning to move for ages. but i need a stable job first. as i cant rely on R.M to keep offering me work when they are making so many cut backs.

    as for sisters -- you dont want one at least not an older one. but i dont know -- some of the older sisters ive met have been pretty cool. then there are those with the 'daddies girl' facade that can get away with murder. I got a beating and shouting at from my dad almost every single day without fail when i was younger and id get the blame for stuff my sis did but wouldnt admit -- after all i was the naughty one.

    a few years ago i got into a real deep talk with my dad about stuff like this. and he apologised for always being so angry and shouting at me (my sister getting shouted at was such a rare occurance -- id pop a bottle of campaign and have a party every time she did if i was old enough to drink)

    Unfortunately for dad. my heart bleeds custod. even though he is my father, i have no sympathy towards that man. I said i dont accept his apology and thats how its been for the last 10years or so.

    we dont talk unless theres a real need to

    I should have said in my last post that she thinks I am loaded, she does not actually know. She is going to pay for herself this year.... she is a student now at Uniiversity so I already pay her a monthly allowance..... she aint getting any more off me apart form perhaps a week in Portugal in Early September with the family.

    Already been. we stayed at the Dom Pedro Palace Hotel. really nice folks there. they bought me a free bottle of champaign and a birthday cake upto my room on my birthday. the hotel also invites local musicians to perform while people are having breakfast or dinner. really beautiful hotel. locals there are friendly. I really enjoyed it there.
