    What would you do with the money?

    Give it back? (because you feel you can't take from your parents, not because they transferred it by mistake)

    Buy yourself something nice?
    Ask if it was a mistake first of all

    Then subject them to a lengthy interrogation about where they got the money from

    Conclude that the money was stolen

    Lol I wasn't sure what the emoji was for- I suspected it was like a gambling guy, looked at the code and it's essentially the opposite
    I gamble and I skrimp :innocent:

    P.S. However, the precise meaning is more about the visual than the smiley code :holmes:

    Do you skrimp because you gamble?

    Or gamble to increase the amount you have to skrimp?

    Well what's the precise meaning. I demand precision.

    Do you skrimp because you gamble?
    Haha, no. I did mess up over-running a basic Roulette system back in the day and was down like £700 at one point, but my luck's been relatively good since then (focused primarily on sports betting, plus a little small chips poker now and then)

    Or gamble to increase the amount you have to skrimp?
    Haha, what a bizarre notion! Rarely do I place big bets, and when I do I usually win e.g. on World Cup finals and Wimbledon

    Well what's the precise meaning. I demand precision

    I tell you what is bizarre. As I read the part what a bizarre notion, the song notion came on my Spotify playlist by KoL :headfire: crazy scenes!!

    Do you do accumulators ? I love sports betting but it's so addictive :teehee:

    Just bet on Novak and you're safe these days :yep:

    Although imagine betting on a serena grand slam this year. That US open final tho :sad:

    I don't know I'm gonna have to check him out again.

    If you use anonymous for reasons that aren't legitimate then you're abusing it. If you do it a lot, well it escalates and can result in a ban. Z33 has an anonymous addiction and is rehab this week to help her overcome it. :yep:

    My parents give me money all the time, although not usually that much at once. But if they did though, I'd just use it for living expenses whilst at college, maybe buy a few music festival tickets, and then when summer comes around and I've finished the course, I'd use any leftover to go on holiday

    Give it back to them. Well, mention it and hope they don't want it back

    I got awarded a fair amount of money in scholarships recently. Saved half, spent the other half on holidays - took my boyfriend to NYC for his birthday and booked our summer holiday, a month-long roadtrip round the Canadian Rockies.

    Spooky times

    Yes ma'am

    IKR?

    Heh. Tend to prefer to bet on top 16 players who look a bit wobbly e.g. did quite nicely out of Hewitt vs. Brown, in-play, at 4:1

    Although imagine betting on a serena grand slam this year. That US open final tho :sad:
    Serena's very high risk for me, I rarely bet on the women's game

    I'd wonder where they got that sort of money, and what they wanted from me. :p: My parents are great, but they don't have that kind of disposable income or savings!

    But say £5,000 just appeared, and I didn't have to give it back, I'd honestly put most of it into saving for renting a house (if not actually leave and rent said house, since combined with my own savings I could probably live on it for a year even if I couldn't find work).
