Airsoft spending regrets?

So today I decided that I was going to buy my honey an engagement ring, y'know - seal the deal. Anyway, I spent a couple of hours browsing around and found the perfect ring. It didn't take too long as she has the same taste as I. Upon finishing the order I learned that my Visa was over it's limit and the transaction didn't go through. Three days ago I completed an order for a new $80 Voodoo LBV and it just so happens that today my bank withdrew my outstanding interest. $80 is almost the exact difference in funds I need on my card ($71.47). I'm between jobs right now so I have no source of income so I feel like a big idiot right now. Anyways I told my girl and we both laughed, she says I look sexy in my new LBV anyway, but I still feel awful.

Anyway, I thought this was kind of a humorous little tale regarding the amount of spending airsoft requires.

Let me hear yours!

If $80 breaks the bank for you, you have other problems.

Yeah I hear that. Last month my "I won't spend anymore money on airsoft this month" Turned into a drop leg holster, some metal mags, a new battery, a sniper mesh, and of course a new pair of BDU pants. lol.

C'mon Styrak, you seriously can't understand why I can't afford a $450 engagement ring when I'm between jobs and have a maxed out Visa? I know you don't like to post anything positive, but any HUMAN BEING can determine that this is just silly situation that ANYONE could find themselves in.

Lighten up man, honestly - it's not like I don't have a job lined up or something. I'm simply BETWEEN jobs.

hahahahaha no just, that #1, you should likely get a job first.
#2, save the money for the ring, you are already spending money you don't have, like a drunken sailor. #3 You should probably spend more than $450. on your engagement ring.... if you like sex. Traditionally, I believe it is the equivalent of 3 months wages.

I don't post only negative stuff, like you say.

It's just that this is the problem with the current generation/general public. Spending money they don't have, and using credit like cash. Not a good idea.

Haha great advice, but my girlfriend would probably stop putting out if I spent over $500, I had to tell her it was a $150 ring. She's so anti-materialistic it's not funny. lol.

I consider you a highly insightful and intelligent person Styrak, and if you had of made this post originally instead of the much more demeaning/condescending one I wouldn't have had an issue with it in the least.

Thanks for taking the time to reply.
