PostPosted: Mon Aug 23, 2010 1:06 pm    Post subject: Crushed Hopper

So, I was helping my sister and brother-in-law move over the weekend and he came across a revi hopper with the xboard in it. I know its not the greatest hopper but it was almost brand new. He doesn't play paintball at all so he gave it to me. Well during the move it got crushed and instead of telling me my wife and sister just threw it away.

I got home and asked if she had seen it and she told me not to worry about it. I asked why and she hesitated and said "Well the story is some how it got crushed and we threw it away." I was a little angry and asked why they didn't tell me so I could get it out of the trash because I could have used the eyes or gotten a new shell. She said not to worry about it and she got angry with me for the frustration I showed.

Did i have a right to be a little angry about the situation or was I totally off base with this? Is this a paintball discussion or a off the topic? I don't know anymore.

Of course you are in the right. She can't dismiss something like that by saying "Don't worry about it". You are the only person who can decide what and what not to worry about.

Obviously you were concerned enough to ask. Personally I wouldn't push the issue, but let it be known that you are perturbed about the situation.

The funny thing about paintball is that it is often seen as a kid's game. I'm sure most people who don't play look at a Revvy and think:
"That's some sort of cheap toy accessory or something."
It's no wonder they threw it away, they probably didn't think it was worth anything. But yes, it does have value to those of us who like to play every now and then.

Just like Spitle said, let it go. Yeah, it's pretty lame that you were helping THEM move and it sounds like you would have gotten at least a Revvy out of it had they been a little more careful.
Still, it's a small item, nothing that 15 bucks can't get you later on down the road.

Oh, and now that I think about it: if it had been a Revvy you really would have wanted, it wouldn't have broken (i.e. the older style shells)

I was thinking the same as you all. Now I feel like a real jack leg though. I had called my sister before I had spoken to my wife and asked if she had seen it and said I thought I had left it back at the old apt. She said she would go get it today(which is just a couple minutes away so no problem at that point in time) She dug it out of the trash for me and left it in my Van today.

It really isn't broken. the lid broke off just under the lid pin. New lid and away we go.

I guess I didn't really convey what my issue was though. I really wasn't upset that it was broken. I was more upset that they just couldn't come to me and say "Hey the plastic thing broke and we threw it away. So no worries." That is really my issue. My wife and I talk about everything together but a little plastic hopper was what she couldn't tell me about. It's weird and maybe she felt it was just so meaningless that it wasn't worth the mention.

Oh well. Thank you all.
Andrew

Suffice it to say, that if that is one of your gripes about the woman you are with... I'd say you are ahead of the game.

Mine has mad gas...
