FML. The Super Mario Galaxy Story

Journal Entry: Wed Nov 27, 2013, 6:26 AM





You guys like story yeah? Let uncle Ry tell you a story, there's a lesson to learn here kids. Pay attention. I wanna talk about this now because last week was my birthday and it reminded me of this story, its related to a birthday gift. The gift was Super Mario Galaxy for the Wii. This story happened a few years ago.



This is a picture of me playing the Nintendo Wii, I love my Wii. Had lots of great times on it playing games like Smash Brothers and Mario Kart and Twilight Princess, and a game I really loved called Super Mario Galaxy. The story takes place around 2009? A couple of years after the Wii came out. So one day a friend of mine Matt messaged me telling me he got a Wii, I thought great, about time he got a Wii. So I congratulated him, then he asked the question. :I He asked whether he can borrow some games and I was like 'HMMMMMMMM SHIT'. Well Matt is a nice guy, pretty honest and pretty generous. I usually am pretty generous too but when it comes to games, I hate lending it out to people. Because:

1)They might lose it.
2)They might scratch the disc.
3)I might forget to ask for it back knowing my potato brain memory.
So I pretended to be nice and asked him which game he wanted to borrow. He says Super Mario Galaxy, to which I thought 'DANG IT! I really like that game and dont wanna lend it out!'. So I had to come up with some excuse... what should I say...? And then I remembered something about that game, it was a gift for my birthday! YEAH there you go! I will just tell him its a gift and has sentimental value so I won't lend out that game for that reason. I wasn't lying either! To which I thought 'SMART THINKING RY!'. So I put on a sad face and said to Matt "yeah... look im sorry man.. the thing about super mario galaxy is that.. well it was a gift for my birthday. and so this game has more sentimental value than anything, something a friend bought for me with their own hard earned money. Showing their love for me, and I love them too. i treasure it so much that everytime play it I think of them. its not that I don't trust you but its just that this game is our symbolic testimony of our eternal friendship. So sorry man I can't lend you this game".. to which I thought to myself "NAILED IT!":icontuzkiyesplz:

Matt didn't reply me for a bit, I thought maybe he was disappointed or something, then he replied saying "I was that friend who bought you Super Mario Galaxy for your birthday.".

.....

SHHHHIIIIT! I totally forgot Matt was the friend who gave me that game! :iconsobbplz: OMG RY VALUE MY FRIEND'S FRIENDSHIP MY BUTT! At that point I just wanted to find a rock and hide under it. You have no idea how embarrassed I was. And then he said "Yeah don't worry about it :) I will buy the game myself, its not too expensive." ......... Dude I felt bad. I was horyble. :I

So there you go kids. Don't lie. Be generous. And most importantly remember who gave you what presents. Don't be a douche bag. Dont be like me. I learnt it the hard way.

aww!! Well, it still does technically show you value friendship, and I don't think there's anything wrong with not wanting to lend out games. It's like how my cousin won't lend me certain books, because she loves them too much XD
Though after that, then you should've been like, oh yeah, you did! Don't worry about it then and here's the game /hands game over and nothing ever happened

On the bright side, he now knows you absoluately LOVE the game he gave you even if you forgot he gave it to you! You love it so much so that you don't want anyone to have it!

haha, oh well, hopefully he just thought you had a terrible memory but was still happy you valued his gift? Either way, that's pretty funny (but also embarrassing and I feel your pain cuz I've done that before too)

But yeah, I also hate lending stuff out to people. I have this friend who I've known since childhood, who I assumed would be okay to lend a game to even though all signs actually pointed to that not being a good idea, but I was blinded by a crush at the time so I lent him my copy of Paper Mario Wii----which I was reluctant to do because it was a birthday gift from my brother, and the only gift I got that year because everyone, even my mom forgot it was my birthday. After I lent it to him, he moved across the country on a whim and took my game with him. :iconwthplz:

Anyways, happy belated birthday~! :D

I'm so sarcastic, I probably would have brushed it off as a joke. Like "haha duh I know you gave it to me, I was just kidding, of course you can borrow it!"

This made me laugh out loud.  :lmao: Dude, that's why you gotta be honest, I never lend out games either, my oldest bro asked me once and I really could not say no either but at the very least you DON'T lie about it. He's like the only one I would lend my games to anyway.

Haha, I feel you with the "don't really like lending out stuff" feeling.
For me though, it's mostly stationary
and I get really scared when someone asks to borrow my coloured fine liners
because for the most part, it's not like you can easily just replace one of them
so then what if they destroy one of them by pressing too hard or something
so then I have to replace the whole set?
and what if, what if.... *dies

Yeah, I get really paranoid about stuff like that

When I lend something (which I rarely do) I always borrow something from them of equal value at the same time, and I make a list. But, ouch! That story is brutal. I'm always afraid of something like that happening :lol:

I stopped lending my stuff to others years ago. It just never went well for me. Either it got lost, the person I had lend it to disappeared or pretended they never got it from me in the first place - even though I always make lists.
I would trust my friends with my life, but not with my videogames. They probably wouldnīt handle them as carefully as I always do, and I really donīt want them to disappoint me by losing or breaking them. If that makes any sense.XD
Explaining this to my friends would be pretty awkward, so I make up reasons for not lending my stuff occassionally, too. Luckily I never got caught on these white lies before.

Don't let it put you down. Everyone suffers from having a "potato brain memory" sometime in their life.
