How can I convince my parents to get me a guinea pi?

I have made a 34 page packet about guinea pigs and have ask for one for a year. My mom doesn't mind, but my dad is putting his foot down on no. He says that after a while I would forget about the guinea pig and it would die. I have had 4 birds in the past, 2 at different time. the first time, my brothers died and mine got lonely and I gave him away. The second pair my brothers got out of his cage while outside so I gave my lonely one away and havent had a pet since.

ask him why, and demand a good reason. I've had my guinea pigs in my room for a few years and I still play with them as if it's the first time I've seen them. they're hard to forget about especially around dinner time X3

I have and my dad said they smell, I told him that since the piggies would be in my room he wouldn't be able to smell them and the smell would affect me forcing me to clean the feces.
any other tips?

Just say that if you do get bored with it that you'll give it away like before. Also say that you'll take care of it etc.

I've tried multiple times, thanks for trying to help.
As soon as I'm done with high school, I shall never see my parents again and have multiple pets, maybe own a shelter...

The thing is.... my dad owns two Subway restaurants and my mum works in one of the two since the second one is under constructions

Do you think it would work to make them a sandwich now??
