Graphing Calculators...

Fuck man, they should not cost this much... Last year of High School and I have had 4 stolen so far. Every time I've had to pay for a new one. 100$!!! I can get a graphing calculator on my Ipod Touch for free! And it works just as well! I can download an exact version of a graphing calculator with clickable buttons for free!! But I can't use it in school. So what's the fucking use? Honestly, why should I have to pay 100$ for a calculator to use at school even though I know that if I look away from it for 2 seconds, its gone, stolen, and sold on cragslist for weed money...

This seriously pisses me off... I finally said fuck it and rented one from the school. Shit, if I lose that I have to pay them 100$. Its like buying a graphing calculator from office depot and them saying "Well, sorry bro, but you can't have this. We keep your money, and you don't get a calculator. trolololol!"

I'm so sick of this shit...

  5. Those calculators are great. And bad thing you can't use your iPod. Well... I think sometimes you can't go against the system. Try to buy another one, and perhaps a warranty, lol. Good luck!

    Might help, unless you can't access Internet in class/have a laptop in there.

  10. Nope, in a pretty crime free area, but yeah, shit sucks bro. Some people steal them straight out of backpacks, some just right off the desks when no one is looking...

    And I'm hoping that I can get a kindle type thing and buy virtual textbooks so I won't have to go through all that hullabaloo
