My parents always work and they never over indulge me unless I have cried my eyes out. Cry (embarassing) My parents have always made good financial decisions but I have turned out exact opposite. Even when I earned my own money I would spend it left and right. The fact that they didn't indulge me at my every little whim had a very very strong opposite effect on me. As long as I can afford it I don't deny myself anything.

I think my parents are bipolar. As a child, I never got pocket money, in school when all my friends did. I would beg, and I was told - tell us what you want to but - if we judge it reasonable you can get it. I was like, I don't know when I might want to have vada pav with my friends. They were like, you don't need to eat vada pav on a whim. Then when I went to college and took the bus, they gave me too much pocket money. I did not know what to do with it.

There were times I would cry my eyes out for something and they will not relent. And sometimes I would absentmindedly say 'I wish I had X' and they would buy it for me.  Like totally bipolar.

It made me bipolar. I deprive myself by only ogling at the electronics section. I pick the generic store brands that are 50 cents cheaper while shopping for groceries. Then all of a sudden I decide that I need a 70 dollar argyle sweater from Buckle because its totally awesome.
