She clearly took it for a reason. Now you pay the consequence. And remember...you will not die without it.

Thanks TL. I'm here now. They put a port in and just started the drip. Jim is with me. There about 7 other people in various stages of cancer. I'm the new girl. I'll let you know when I need you. How often to you come through Raleigh?

Glad Jim is there (I kinda figured he'd be by your side). It's hard to say how often I am in any certain area...for a while I was in the Raleigh area every week...then months can go by without setting a tire in the state ;)
Regardless of where I am, if you need anything...I'll find a way...promise!

You could ask and if she says no then that's all there is to it.

make sure you wake up early the next day. Like 15 min before your normal time. Try to be 15 min early all day for everything.

Doing chores for your mom will help her see your responsibility and respectful attitude.

Do everything your mom likes you to do without being asked. Be really sweet and give her reasons to want to give it back to you. You have to be a good kiss up to do this and at the end off all that if she still hasnt given it back or mentioned sit down with her and tell her you need it for school.

Where is all your music?
Why isn't your music on your phone also?
My old LG chocolate was able to hold tons of songs.

I like "oarkergreatdane's" answer, If more of the youth today had parents like we back in the day had, we would be in a better place.

In my household, if you do not like the initial consequence, I am more than willing to double it.

With that in mind, are you willing to ask?

Report as
i meant i didnt wanna ask i wanted to know what i could do for her to give it like without me straight up trying
Report as
If you do not know when she is going to give it back, you can ask "when can I expect to get my iPod back?"
Report as
she said 3 days to 5 days and the ipod is the only way i can contact my friends because most of my friends dont have phones
Report as
Do your friends have a land line you can call? Despite the proliferation of cell phones, those things do still work.
Report as
haha im not sure if they do they never gave me their home numbers

If she took it because you did something bad than don't ask it.The consequence will double if not triple!!Wait a few more days than maybe bring it up in a polite and innocent way.Don't argue just bring the subject up!Good luck!ps.you'll survive without it trust me!!haha :)

Why would you get grounded for asking to get back hour iPod? Just ask her. Nicely of course. There's nothing wrong with it and I'm sure you're mom would understand. It might make you an Indian giver but not a rotten kid

Keep your mouth shut & just be helpful. Do not ask for it too soon or I guarantee the answer will be a resounding NO. Also, don't resort to violence & get locked up, (just kidding).
