The Claw machine took my wedding money

August 22nd, 2011 at 02:22 pm

Well now that I have your attention from my completely ridiculous title for my post. Hopefully I can explain it while not making myself look completely stupid. (probably not). Back in 2001 after I was married we went up to South Dakota for our honeymoon. Being the really fun an exciting people that my wife and I are. We spent most of our time playing pool and foosball in the hotel game room.

Also in the game room they had one of those claw machines that have all sorts of stupid stuffed animals in them. Well my wife saw one that she thought was cute and we decided to try it. What Iím going to tell you next may be shocking, but we didnít win immediately. (Shocker huh?) So we tried again and again and again. Finally we were able to get that one out of the machine. Did we stop there? Not a chance. A few more tries and we got another one out and then another. Iím not sure if you know this but after you get a couple out the animals are much easier to free from the machine.

Well after an undisclosed amount of time and money was spent. And a collection of stuffed animals large enough to open a stuffed pet store, we decided that we had enough fun. We most likely could of bought those animals somewhere else for much cheaper. Its stupid things like the claw machine that keep people broke. You might think that its just 50 cents in a machine. But it could easily be anything like lottery tickets. You dont realize how much you are spending until its all said and done and your broke.

Donít let the ďclaw machineĒ in your life get you.

    I had to laugh when I read your post, but I have very fond memories of those claw machines from when my grandparents took me to Asbury Park, New Jersey and Seaside heights. I was fascinated by those claw machines. What fun.

    Yeah they are quite fun, but they can take all your money if your not careful. lol

    Guess what? They have miniature ones in toy catalogs that you can buy, complete with that circus music. For $30 (and whatever you spend on candy to put in it) you can give your kids all the fun they want. And at least you know it can't take any MORE of your money! ;-)

    I wish the claw machine would take away student loan debt! But if it doesn't, folks may want to know that Lily's List is a student loan gift registry, helping students pay down their debt one wedding gift, birthday gift, etc, at a time.
