Bye bye Sally the iPod

Since Ron just went out and said it, I'll do the same. He dropped my iPod. What's left of it is a little box that clicks. He's going to replace it, but I'm going to miss my old one. I went through an awful lot to get it, and we had some good times together. But, I need to get over it. Sally exists no more.

I feel guilty about him replacing it. If he had money for an iPod, he would have bought one for himself by now (he's had mine borrowed for a couple of months, with a few short hiatuses). He'll have a lot more money come August, so I told him he could replace it then. I'll miss it, but not anymore than I had been with him borrowing it these past two months.

My new 20 GB 4th Generation iPod was $299 (well, if I had paid for it). They don't make it anymore. Now for $299 they have a 30 gig, color, video iPod. That comes in black. DUM DUM DUM. BUT my iPod certainly wasn't worth $299 anymore, I've had it for over a year, so I'd feel guilty asking for that one. Actually I feel guilty asking for anything at all, but one of my HUGE pet peeves is when people borrow things of mine and don't treat them nicely and break or lose them.. and I HAD warned him about it. Plus... it's not my fault, and I really want an iPod. MY iPod really, but that's not going to happen. Sigh (I actually did sigh right then).

So it seems like the logical choice would be to ask him to find a used iPod on eBay. I checked, and the 20 gig 4g ones are less than $200 at closing, it seems, some of them new in box with warranty. I think that's probably the fairest solution.

Thoughts?

Try ubid.com I've had a lot of luck getting good deals on electronics there. Plus its all controlled and chances of getting screwed by a private auctioner are eliminated.

cite damages due to a tragic loss and go for the 60g video ipod.
I like white better.

they still exist (called something else now I think) but they have very strict rules and probably won't let her do it again.

I don't know about that, my friend Shilpa just got a brand new black 30 gig ipod from them. She did have to spend some money though on the requirements and in bribing friends to sign up (probably $50 total)

really? I tried the other "free handbag" and "free desktop pc" and friends signed up that I never got credit for, and I saw on their sites where they were credited.

he should definitely replace it and don't feel guilty about that! I'm sure that's what he wants to do. That is nice of you to be patient until August when he has more money.

I was able to get her to say, "You broke my iPod; you suck," today, which I hope made her feel better. But I am extremely grateful that she's patient enough to wait a few months for it. In the meantime, I bought her a memory card for her phone and the USB reader so she can have some music on the go. My parents always taught me to return things in the same condition or better, and I definitely need to make good on that here.

Look at getting a flash memory mp3 player instead. Smaller, cheaper, and much tougher since there's no hard drive to break. You could fit a hundred songs on, and switch them out as needed.

My thoughts exactly
Knowing that it will never be her iPod when I am able to replace it, I opted to get Melissa a 1gb micro SD card for her phone so she can at least have music with her until I can replace the iPod.
