    Default Seeking a shopper

    I am looking for someone that would go to International Market and find the T-shirts booths and pick out 2 sets (they are usually 10 or 12 for x amount of dollars i think) and mail them to me. If interested, reply here or pm me please. Thank you.
    If anyone on Oahu is NOT happy , feel free to trade places with me.

    I stay out of Waikiki as much as I can. The traffic. So it's not on my route. The other 40 will have to offer their explanations.

    Hold on!!! No make lil dat with ATTITUDE!

    First of all, when I read your first post, I understood it as "YOU" wanted "SOMEONE" to go purchase the t-shirts with "their" $$$ and den mail the merchandise to you?

    We all have Lives Here in Hawai'i! Next time be moa specific. Don't give up so easily and den blast us cause nobody responded.

    Look on the bright side. Your boys are coming and will get to choose the t-shirts foa you. And if you don't like what they chose, uhhhhh...it's ok. They're your SONS!

    Well, mercy and dangitall, I hope you find a shopper but heck, I can't cuz I just don't give my contact info. to people online unless I know them very well and for a long time. Maybe....others avoid doing such favors for the same type of reasons.

    Wannabe? With all due respect...what exactly is your definition of the Aloha spirit? That might help us get a better handle on your expectations.

    With the exception of addressing parking I thought you were quite thorough in your request so my guess is if someone had the time to fulfill it s/he would've Pm'd you for your address. Just an fyi...parking is problematic and expensive in Waikiki.

    Excuse me, da 41 people don't all live on Oahu muchless frequent Waikiki. I no tink I have to explain why or why not; I not going Waikiki cause even when I go home I no go Waikiki unless somebody treating at Todai's (but I digress).

    If nobody wen say notting its cause they had reason, not cause dey no moe Aloha. Now dat you ack/sound la dat, why kokua yo'attitude? People kokua from the heart not cause they get "called out" by someone online la dis. Like Karen, one has to feel safe to give out personal information la dat. And how do you know some ripoff artist with a fake name & P.O. box ain't just gonna take yo'money and run? You know what I'm saying.... Don't you watch the Bounty Hunter & Dog & Beth all dem; there's a lot of messed up people in Hawaii.

    Dat tone/term: "wannabe Aloha spirit" make you sound like a really negative kind of person....like you expect people to do for you just cause you ask, sight unseen? How WE know YOU not "stranger danger?" You asked, nobody answered. Why you gotta push buttons and attribute it to a lack of Aloha?

    I hope you get your T-shirts. Dude, it just T-shirts from Waikiki no less. Try try cafepress.com or bodybypoi or e808 or sigzane, there are alot of cool T-shirts out there betta den da ones in Waikiki. Its just T-shirts, man cool yo'jets.

    If you think people not answering your request defines a lack of Aloha spirit ~ den you do not know the meaning of the Aloha spirit yourself.

    Wow

    So I guess asking someone to pick me up some DVD's from Suzie's Warehouse is out of the question.

    My 2-cents:

    For obvious reasons I can't because I live on the Big Island

    Like others have said, unless I'm doing business in Waikiki, I'd consider it, but with parking rates per the half hour, taking the time to get a few t-shirts can cost more in parking than what the shirts are worth.

    And any Kamaaina knows that if you want cheap and plentiful t-shirts you go to Aloha Stadium Swap meet to get um. Locals no like make "A" getting caught buying cheap t-shirts in Waikiki, das only for the tourists. I mean how would you answer to this call:

    Eh braddah I seen you in Waiks buying some trashy t-shirts! Ho cuz getting desperate eh?

    What...I was doing it for somebody else...eh what you was doing in Waikiki? Checking out the ladies eh you bastard!

    Nah not me...Waikiki is too expensive...try da chicks down by Hosoi in Chinatown.

    Eh brah...das not chicks! Wop your jaws braddah!!!

    It's an interesting insight that you feel a Hawaii resident would (1) volunteer this favor for you and then (2) allow themselves to be shamed into it and (3) expect the "wannabe Aloha spirit" comment to change our attitude into motivation to execute your request.

    Is it because your understanding of the aloha spirit obligates us to include personal shopping as part of our culture? Maybe it's a good thing that you're coming here-- it'll give you a chance to learn how the aloha spirit really works. In your area it's called different words like "neighborly" and "mutual respect", but no matter what culture you're in I'm pretty sure it's some equivalent of the Golden Rule.

    Your first post was a personals ad looking for services. I see that in newspapers and on Craigslist all the time. No problem. 41 people read your first post because it's on the board, not because we're looking for employment.

    Your two posts quoted above imply that we're discourteous & lazy. I have a problem with that.

    I also believe that people are responding in pidgin to inject a little note of humor & tolerance into a situation that's actually quite embarrassing, rude, and offensive. (Kinda like a party host making a joke to break the tension after another guest's inappropriate behavior brings the whole room to a standstill.) I've spent some time in Oklahoma so I understand that not everyone in your state behaves like that, if indeed you really do live there. People with your attitude can be found anywhere.

    But hey, this board has an "Ignore Poster" button. You have a nice life now...
    Youth may be wasted on the young, but retirement is wasted on the old.
    Live like you're dying, invest like you're immortal.
    We grow old if we stop playing, but it's never too late to have a happy childhood.
    Forget about who you were-- discover who you are.

    Ackchally, I write like how I talk or is it I talk da way I write. Yeah and pidgin comes off moe "playful" and less humbug. Ok, it depends how good yo'pidgin is. I can go straight, kapakahi, or Okie English.

    Truth be known I can say all wot I said with an Okie accent and you'd think you was tawkin to some country bumpkin. Ma'inlaws & kinfolks live in 3 NE Oklahoma counties and I am an alumni of Northeastern State University. But who gives a ratsass about what I know.

    Oh and for the record there is Aloha Spirit/neighborlyness in Oklahoma. I've always found it comfortable in the small town that I lived in. With my experience, "they" (absolute strangers) would tell me intimate seriously personal details/history I did not need or want to know, that use to always shock da shitoutta me.

    Alla y'all have a good day now. How's ya'momma andem?

    Memorylane...think of it this way:
    Based on your sig, *expecting* an Oahu HTer to be your personal shopper is the equivalent of you trying to sit in his/her pew in the wrong church.

    You made the request in 2 separate threads and no one bit. That wasn't from lack of aloha, trust me. Not all HTers read the forums every day. My guess is had you not made post #2 above you might've had an offer after giving it a little bit more time. I can think of one person who just might have volunteered but, dang, post #2 squelched your chances. And, no, not me. I'd rather have a root canal than go shopping...any kine shopping...even for myself.

    You guessed right! I was going to VOLUNTEER.

    Auntie would've done it too had you not insulted her and quite a few others by rushing to judgement. Even your back handed apology is an insult. I'm sorry you don't 'get it', Memorylane. I truly am. 'Nuff said...

    What a hollow excuse for an apology. Your back-handed comment at the end cements it for me... you deserve ZERO help from anyone here in Hawaii.

    Geez... it sure is funny to read what some folks think will qualify as pidgin these days.

    Keep practicing.

    These are solid examples of how to guilt trip people, followed up with passive-aggressive communication.

    Just a minor correction, PM. They're examples of how to attempt to guilt trip people. The attempt didn't work!

    At this point, i am no longer seeking anyone to do this FIRST of all.........secondly, i am a 39 (almost) yr. old woman who ISNT *NORMAL* in the sense of ways of the world. I have stayed at home and raised my boys. I dont know how to PLAY GAMES and be passive aggressive and try to goad and all this other stuff i am being accused of. I type like i talk and even still, it isnt and wasnt intended to come across the way all of you'll have taken it. So be it. Thanks either way and anyway and have a good day in paradise.
