I was that kid who when they asked their parents if I could get a new toy there response would be "of course you can buy yourself a toy". The problem here being that I would have to earn the money to buy it first. My parents didn't give an allowance as they viewed activities like this as expected, so instead I would wash cars in the neighborhood and mow lawns for money. In one instance I wanted to ask a girl out on a date so by working various jobs for my dad I saved enough money up. Turns out by the time I had enough money saved she already had a boyfriend. In part I thank them for teaching me the value of a dollar and how to stand on my own two feet. I am now the kind of person who never asks for money, and if you do a favor for me you'd better expect me to return the favor.

Why buy something that's just going to collect dust in a few years? Material objects are a waste of money if you don't use them.

No, I'm not spoiled at all, sadly >:

I'm the eldest and I've always been the one that had to tell my siblings not to ask for too much coz my parents aren't the wealthiest

I don't believe so. I'm happy with the things I have.

Spoiled by parents, friends, others or myself?

I don't accept gifts from others. I hate things I haven't earned myself. I do however buy myself nice things when I feel I've earned them. For instance, I Aced Calculus II this semester and just finished a project for a client as well as a final estimate on a very profitable commercial property.

I treated myself to these:



I bought them because they look cool and I think they'll make me feel like The Flash when I run...

Far from spoiled.
My parents never gave me much..never bothered me.
Just showed me that I had to work for what I wanted.
