At the beginning of this year, my son started asking me for a pool table. Although he had actually asked for a pool table for Christmas, I had told him as soon as he asked that we simply didn’t have room in our house. Although he was disappointed when I told him this, he got over it, thought of some other things that he wanted for Christmas, and ended up having a wonderful Christmas just like every other year before.
However, the reason that he started asking me for a pool table again earlier this year after Christmas had already passed is because I got rid of a large couch that was in our second living room. I was simply tired of having this couch in my house, and I decided that it would be much better to donate it to the Salvation Army instead of simply letting it continue to take up space in my house when I didn’t like it all. Because this freed up a lot of space, my son realized that a pool table would fit there.
Because he was so persistent in asking politely, I began to consider getting him a pool table. However, I knew from the beginning that I wasn’t going to purchase a new pool table. New pool tables are quite expensive, and I didn’t know if this was something he was going to lose interest in after six months, so I didn’t want to risk wasting a bunch of money on it. Instead, I started browsing around the Internet for used pool tables. I looked for quite awhile (still not sure if I was actually going to get him one), but when I came across a used pool table in excellent shape at a great price, I decided to give in and purchase it for him. He has been playing with it almost everyday since I got it for him, so my used pool table purchase has been a good one so far.
