    My cousins father threw away his 32GB iPad into the rubbish chute because my cousins fought over it the 100th time. I did feel extremely shocked and sad upon hearing this. A $599 device falling into the garbage? He said that there was peace and quiet but still I cried uncontrollably although it was not mine. My cousins who are children did feel about. How would you feel? Answer in the poll above or reply. :confused:

    That is horrible!! I would go down and get it out of the dumpster and not tell anyone.

    Wonder if it broke on the way down....prolly scratched up pretty bad.:( This hurts my heart.

    That's hilarious. I would have taken it away and taught them how to share and be civilized. Throwing it in the trash is not being a good role model.
    It's funny how you " cried uncomtrollably" loool.

    You "cried uncontrollably."























    Wow. If you are 10 years old and/or a girl, I guess I can understand.

    Lolol I was thinking the same thing!! :D

    Here is something to be upset over.. I have a new truck that has sat in my driveway for two years because I have a company truck that pays for gas as well. Bought the truck a couple months prior to job offer. So $40k vs $600.. Well.....

    LOL!

    No one over the age of 10 should cry uncontrollably over an iPad being thrown in the garbage. :p

    Agree it's sad.
    The father lacks imagination and/or self control and I guess his sons won't be growing up with much respect for him. The fact that his previous attempts to control the hooligans having failed so frequently just confirms it.

    Just remember it's your party and you cry if you want to.

    That's just stupid. Why would anyone throw away a working ipad?
    It would have been better just to take it away and get assurances that the fighting would not continue before returning it or sell the ipad.

    Must be a rich family.
