Question by Goaway: How do i persuade my mom to buy me a ,500 dollar camcorder?
Please don’t tell me that I need to get a job because I’m fifteen and they won’t hire me anywhere. I am an aspiring filmmaker and I’ve already written the screenplay. I’ve managed to get all the equipments I need from my friends……..except a professional HDV camcorder. Don’t say I need to start out with “smaller” projects because I’ve been making short films since I was 10 and now I think I’m ready to take the real challenge. I’ve started asking my mom to buy me the camera to the point that she’s getting annoyed by it. But guess what? When I asked her for the first time (two weeks ago) she said “NO WAY!” (2 days later) “Don’t even think about it” (4 days later) “please shut up” (6 days later) “please go away” (9 days later) “Stop asking me!” (13 days later) “I’m busy right now” [my big break] (today) “since when did I promise you that I’ll buy you a camera?” Do you think I should keep asking her? Do you think she’ll finally give-up and order the camera for me?What else should i do?

Get a job! Do you seriously think your mother is going to pay 3,500 (about 2 months paychecks) to buy you a camcorder?
