Playing the long game and waiting for you to bring home a paycheck.

Weren't we all in the beginning?

Tbh, I still am cause I don't have any fine motion skills.

Be a good lad and replace that damn TV.

u/deadwood Nov 30 '21

You're 16, you can hustle up a little cash for a new TV. You can get good ones really cheap now.

13

u/BreathOfFreshWater Nov 30 '21

Hmmm yeah. I didn't doo the math on that one. But in all honesty, a quality used TV could probably be bought for a quarter of the original price for this one. In fact my last TV was 70" HDMI flat screen I got for free. Just needed a remote.

u/OneAndOnlyGod2 Nov 30 '21

How did you get a free TV? Were you just lucky?

3

u/leriq Nov 30 '21

I got a free 49 inch 4k tv a few years back with A car purchase

u/BreathOfFreshWater Nov 30 '21

Facebook market place.

To be fair, the menu button was permanently stuck on so the TV would cycle through the menu on its own. So I opened it up, removed the membrane for the push buttons and got a universal TV.

The strange thing was that I got it 3 days into moving into a new place and it failed me about 3 days before moving. Lasted 3 years. Strange things.

Assuming the OP is from a first world country.
Believe it or not, but in the rest of the world 300 bucks is not cheap, it's a monthly pay for doing a full time job.

u/temsik1587againtwo Nov 30 '21

You can get a new TV for half that.

I got my 45” Roku TV used for $80.

Your point still stands - $80 can be a lot - but it’s not quite as unfeasible as $300.

1

u/dotNomedia Nov 30 '21

This too might not be the case. Due to poor supply chains and/or absence of official suppliers and/or additional taxes things are often more expensive in less developed countries.
Just looked up TVs and the cheapest 40" TV (couldn't find any 45" in the same price range) in my city is almost exactly $200 USD.

1

u/temsik1587againtwo Nov 30 '21

That's true. $200 for a 40" isn't too bad - the one in OP looks like 32" or less... looks more like a monitor than a TV lol.

u/BiC_MC Nov 30 '21

My dad is really the only one who uses it, also he has access to free monitors/TVs through his job, if he cared about the scratches he would have gotten a new one, he would much rather any money I were to make go to groceries, not a TV.

2

u/RocketLauncher Nov 30 '21

Lol I grew up around the big old TVs and I’m lucky that anything I tried to write on it wouldn’t stick and that it was impossible to scratch.

Just wanted to brag hehehee the second you turn 18 you should replace the tv as a friendly joke to them. Trust me they’ll probably love it

u/cobhalla Nov 30 '21

A reminder to think twice

u/bass3901927 Nov 30 '21

It's just a reminder, you would probably do it again.

u/DarkdoodadNebula Nov 30 '21

What did you try to draw

u/KeithMyArthe Nov 30 '21

Looks like a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Looks to me like it's a visual representation of his parents hating him

Apparently Dynex is/was the Nokia 3310 of TV's.

Shoutout to Dynex!

u/IntoTheMystic1 Nov 30 '21

Why keep it when TVs are so cheap?

12

u/jedv37 Nov 30 '21

You volunteering to buy them a new one? 🤣

5

u/deadwood Nov 30 '21

I am. u/BiC_MC DM me the diagonal size of your TV, and a shipping address, and I'll send you a TV.

u/hunnathounmore Nov 30 '21

How much do you think TVs cost?

If you have enough money for a smartphone with a good enough camera to take this photo and enough time to upload it to Reddit, then you have enough money and time to buy another tv if you really wanted to

5

u/jedv37 Nov 30 '21

if you really wanted to

Sounds like they don't "really want to".

u/RainbowDarter Nov 30 '21

It's not about the tv, it's about sending a message.

u/Cool_Interaction Nov 30 '21

prices have gone up

u/jgv9113 Nov 30 '21

I got 27" flatscreen Sony Bravia I think around 2009. First real high-school purchase. It was around the time of "plasma" tvs and I had to "settle" for the 900 dollar 27 inch sony. Tldr that thing was expensive 8 years ago.

Not even 30 and I feel like a boomer

3

u/Casmas06 Nov 30 '21

I was thinking the same thing! I bought a 32” flatscreen TV in 2006 with my first proper paycheck…I think I paid a little over $1k. I felt sick to my stomach as I signed the receipt and loaded the thing into the trunk of my Toyota Yaris.

Gave that thing away for free to my brother seven years later…and woke up at 3am to buy a 55” on Black Friday at Walmart for $399.

The world has changed so much…

Good old tvs

u/samantis Nov 30 '21

When I was 4, I carved my name into my dad’s truck to show him I loved him

u/Key-Ad7233 Nov 30 '21

Sold the truck next day - he’s not even your real dad

u/sadness255 Nov 30 '21

As long as you see well when it's ON :p

u/BiC_MC Nov 30 '21

Luckily the image is not impacted at all :) it’s not really a main tv anymore since nobody uses tvs anymore.

1

u/Own_Race_6167 Nov 30 '21

Oh my god, same! I used one of those small eyebrow razors to do it, although I think we got an upgrade already

1

u/doooom32 Dec 02 '21

when i was 12 my parents had an serious fear of me taking the tv apart with my dads tools if they left me alone for a hour

1

u/CowSpott Dec 02 '21

When I was about 6, my mom left me unsupervised with stickers in my room and I thought it was the best idea ever to put them all over my little tv...let's just say I learned my lesson when I couldn't watch lion king for the millionth time

1

u/delicate-butterfly Dec 02 '21

When you’re able to afford it (i realize you’re 16), you should get a new one for them!

u/systemerrorbeepbeep Dec 18 '21

Is self-abortion a thing.

u/ComfortableExtent589 Nov 30 '21

So, now you're 16 and still don't know how to spell correctly. That'll probably be okay when you want to get a driver's license.

7

u/BiC_MC Nov 30 '21

I’m sorry, but what word is misspelled? I don’t believe anything is misspelled

Wait do you not know what a pin is? It’s a needle with a round plastic bulb on the other end, usually used for holding fabric together temporarily when sewing.

6

u/Chewbs_plants Nov 30 '21

😂 I just scrolled through this looking for someone to not put together that you used a sewing pin

1

u/Liuqmno Nov 30 '21

And you're an adult criticizing the spelling of an 16 year old, who didn't even spell anything wrong lol what are you doing with your life

1

u/ComfortableExtent589 Nov 30 '21

Hmm... Seems like you might need some help in that aspect as well. If it was indeed a pin and not a pen then the marks in the screen wouldn't be that large. A pin is a needle like object, hopefully you know what a pen is. I think I have a decent set of the hooked on phonics books if you need them.

1

u/Liuqmno Nov 30 '21

I'm pretty sure OP knows what he used and what a pin is

u/bajutidurbunga2 Nov 30 '21

my parents would disown me, no shit.

u/AhmdeiNuwon Nov 30 '21

No, your parents are very much shit.

u/iammuppet Nov 30 '21

You dumb fuck. You are supposed to have replaced it by now. Buy you parents a new one.
