Lessons of Jamaa #34: They're Your Items, Not Anyone Else's

Hello fellow jammers. I am RjKingBeast, a friend of Breathless'. She asked me to write about an idea I had for this blog, so here I am. 
Well, recently there have been a lot of scammers and "trust trading." Every now and them someone doesn't give back an item and then it becomes a scam. Or by trust trading, they accept a good item for a very non-rare item and that becomes a scam. My question is: Why would you let your guard down like that? They can keep it and never give it back. I would be struck by guilt if I ever did that. But some people don't feel as bad as others. 
*Note: This was November of 2011* I once let my friend (she is anonymous for reasons and she quit) borrow a pair of purple gazelles that I recently got. She was a really great friend of me and I told her everything. From what I last ate at dinner to guys that I liked. She was a great friend. That's right. Was. When I first let her borrow them, she was cool and stayed by me to let me know that she wasn't going to scam. But, around 2 hours later, she told me "Bye." and just left me there while she went into a locked den. I thought she was laughing with an evil smile on her face with friends. A few minutes later her friend and herself came to where I was. Her friend told me "Sorry for your loss..." and just went back to her den. My best friend look at me and said, and I quote: "These are mine now. You can forget me :)" and just deleted me and left. I was so shocked when she did that. I couldn't tell if it was real or joking. 
I was scared, like I did something wrong. A few hours of tears with other friends I realized that she wasn't in it for the friendship. She was in it for the rares. It showed me what some of these "jammers" are. They're not always good friends. You can't just walk down rainbow road with her/him and think: "Oh, I can trust him" when he/she asks to borrow. They're yours. Not theirs. Just because you think they're gonna be a good friend and give them back doesn't always come out right in the end. A lot of what I just said happened to one of my great friends the other day. One of her/hum "friends" asks and she/he let him/her control her. Like it didn't even phase her. (Note, anonymous people for reasons) I told him/her that she/he made the person who scammed rare. Not the person. She/he did. It was his/her rare item, not the scammer's.
I learned after the 7th time I got scammed: Not everyone is who they seem. If someone asks to borrow my items, I'm honestly going to say "You're not a real jammer" and just leave them. They're not a real friend if they do that. If they can't live with what they have, which I'm not saying to traders, then why not trade for it, not scam it. You should be grateful for what you have, and not what you don't. It's not like the end of the world has came and you just lost your family to it. Also, don't always believe what they say. They can lie to you and say their stuff was scammed or they were hacked. I honestly don't believe when they say hacked. Because most of the people on here are 8-13 and I doubt they know how to get into an account.
My grandma used to always tell me: "If you can't live the way now, then change it with yourself. Not with others. But only ask people when you need help. Moving furniture alone is really tough for my age." She's 89 and she went to Harvard. I think she knows whose real and whose not.
Once again, those items are yours. Not theirs. Keep them safe and trade them for items that you want. I am RjKingBeast. Thanks for reading.
EDIT: (Rj) When MagicDream said she was giving Imperative a top hat for what she did, SHE NEVER EVEN DID. Magic doesn't feel bad. Because she's a total drama queen. She can't get enough of her self and she can't get her own rares. Whoever thinks she did right was all wrong. Imp gave away all her items to friends cause she didn't want them. She gave Animalgirl58943 a pink top that she's wearing now. Imp was the hero. Imp made Magic rare. Magic did the same thing to Animalgirl58943 with the top hat nonsense. She's a lazy person cause she can't get rares herself.  I really dislike her for everything that's she's done. She's not a good person. Only someone with bad friends would be that cruel to an innocent little girl.
(I had to edit some words out, sorry. >.<)

  1. I totally understand the whole concept. Yes, When I was little around 2 months after I joined. It happened, O.k., so I used to have a non-member bat wing that I scammed (I used to have 3, but then some guy hacked 2 of them then bye-bye!) My friend, who is anonymous because I do not know her username anymore, She was my best friend. I told every inch from me, from how old am I to my how I like boys (In real life), She and I have been hanging out for like about a month, and I trusted her like a person can trust God. I gave her my Non mem wings. At first she said "Thanks so much! I'll borrow them for a while." or something like that. After a hour, she said to me "I got to go! Bye!" Then immediately deleted me. Later I tried and searched for her and was now hacked. Well, I thought was hacked but actually I met a girl with the exact same pattern and looks with the non mem bat wings. I was going to report her but she went somewhere else before I could. Argh. Poor me.

    1. Eeeek! D: True post, RJ...very true... Someone, a "buddy" once asked to borrow my bat wings. I said no - they already had some! I could see them on their other animal... :/ Stupid how some people think you're going to fall for somethings... That guy later hacked me. Anyway, I know what you said about swearing, and sorry, but preferably don't? I mean, you might be old enough to say it, but there are others who aren't old enough to read it. Meep!

    2. I've heard cussing sense I was 3, I'm pretty sure you can handle it.

      Delete
    3. I'm sorry, Kinyonga, but I felt like I couldn't get the message out to kids that she's a terrible person. He shouldn't be treated like a queen for her actions against a little girl.

    4. Sometimes people swear to emphasize what they're saying, and some have a nasty habit, and some, like peppywolf have been around swearing for a long time and it's not such a big deal.

      Delete
    5. You still shouldn't swear :/

      Delete
    6. some people haven't heard swearing and some little kids *kindergarteners-gr.2* could maybe say that because they saw it and it makes some people uncomferable *me* so thats why<3

  4. I agree with you on all of what you posted, but I must correct one teensy thing. I'm exposed to harsh language every single day, by kids my age, and at my home. I do not believe anyone is "old enough" to cuss, nor should you try to make your case by saying your old enough. I actually don't mind a little cussing now, and than, it expresses your true emotions, but saying that it's fine for you to cuss because you're "old enough" is just wrong. If I see a little girl/boy cussing I giggle, if I see an adult cussing I'll patiently sit, If I see a teenager cussing because they think it's perfectly fine because they're "old enough" I get pissed. I'm sorry I'm such an opionative little girl, I can't help it...

    1. It's it totally fine. I felt as if I couldn't get the message out to people as a writer. I am actually old enough if you could see my profile (creepers gotta creep) and I don't even know why I'm on this kids game anymore. Because most of this is getting really ridiculous. I really can't stand how some of these people act. Sorry.

      Delete
    2. I'm not sure you understand the message I'm trying to convey. There's reasons that I think it's okay for people to cuss, even though I'm exposed to people cussing just for the hell of it, and being "old enough" isn't one of the reasons. I mean I understand "getting the message out," but age doesn't really pertain to the matter. You see, it's not like drinking, you have to be a certain age to do that, but it's still wrong. With cussing you don't HAVE to be a certain age, and no matter what it's not the best thing to do, but when you think of it they're just words.

  5. Ah, this is so true, sadly... I try to treat every jammer with respect and trust, because treat others the way you want to be treated, right? Sadly, other people appearently have not heard this golden rule.
    I give away rares to jammers who have been hacked and scammed. I honestly only trade for stuff I like, so even though I have been on for two years, I only have a paw full of rares. People like to take advantage of me for this...
    I like to role play in clans. No, I don't like all the drama in the clans, but I love the fact that most people who role play warriors have the same interests as me. I love to meet new people everyday and make up plots for our characters.
    Once I was rping my apprentice, Twistedpaw. I met this other apprentice called Lonelypaw. We came up with a plot to make our characters "Fall in love"
    So we were hanging out together, when all of a sudden, he says "my birthday was last month. Can you send me a present?"
    I thought that was odd, but I sent him my golden legend since we were pretty good friends by then.
    A few days later, I look on my buddy list and he had deleted me when I went offline! I was so shocked and hurt, since I enjoyed role playing and talking with him. I still can't believe he took advantage of me like that, after we had gotten to know each other... It sickens me to think people do that just for some pixels.
    I still role play in the clans, and I am still meeting new friends (who are true jammers) but I am also on the look out for people who have been taken advantage of, so that I can stop this happening to other jammers.
    Lonelypaw, if you read this, I hope you are ashamed of your self. (Note: his user was not "Lonelypaw". That was his clan name)

    1. I once was in a clan too. When I got kicked out I realized it was because I wasn't rare (way back last year). It was very sad to me. I'm sorry that your friend did that to you and I hope you can get back on the right tract.

    2. Some clans are really mean :-/ I like to stick to the bigger clans, cause there, everyone's accepted! :D

  11. I'm sorry you feel that way about me I'm not going to let my words out about you because that would make a bigger fight. The only reason you added that little segment on me was to cause yet again more drama. I hope you become a better person someday. And I am getting a top for imp. This whole scam thing is none of this blogs nor your business so please do yourself a favor and stay out! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It is my business cause imp is a great friend of me. You never got her a top, she had to be given one from someone else. I added that segment was to inform everyone about how you are being treated like a queen for your actions when you didn't even get your own rares. So many get them next time and this would've never even happened. :)

    2. Ummmm a "queen" wtc! I'm not being treated like a queen i just have forgiving friends.. :) something you don't know how to do! (Forgive)

    3. XD I'm not stupid. I don't forgive you cause you scammed a good friend of mine.

    4. Why does she have to forgive you? It's not her problem it's yours! Maybe if you apoligized, you know, something you obviously don't know how to do, she would -.-

    1. Because that was hers. She's already given more than enough rares away. At least AG gives back.

  14. Oh magic dream, If your too lazy to get rares Try! Like my dad and grandma Always said, Try! And Breathess and RJ aren't drama queens You act quite dramatic Yourself Thank you very much! sorry to soind rude no offense *sticks nose in air acts dignified*

    1. Haha yes they are if they didn't want to cause more drama they world have never posted anything about me to make more drama lol whatever there just haters I have plenty of good friends on AJ :)

    2. I wouldn't have posted this if you didn't even scam Imp. At least some people like DarkChild see that you shouldn't treated like a queen, you ingreatful little girl.
      That's how your guy's generation is screwed. Always getting what they want and never giving anything back.

      Delete
    3. @MagicDream, the drama was already there! You started it all, and Rj's not creating more drama, she's helping fix it! She's telling jammers not to trust people like you, and honestly they shouldn't. Why don't you feel bad? You should. You said forgive, and forget? Why should we? You never apoligized, you think you did nothing wrong, and frankly, my dear, you have the conscience of a socio-path -.-

      Delete
    4. Obviously you are a little girl since little girls have a big trait in their personality, ignorance which is what you have therefore you must be in the age group of a five year old. Lets hope you grow up to be a senseful person. No offense to other little girls, im sure those aren't as ignorant as this one ^

  23. I KNOW!!!!! A few days ago, i was having a party at my den, and one of my buddies (you know, the ones that just buddy you for no reason at all) came. I had a fashion show minigame, and that buddy lost on the second round. She said that her outfit was soooooo much better than everyone elses,and that she was going to leave. I felt bad, and i felt like a failure at AJ Parties.. Then she asked for my beta bubblegum machine, i said no because it was really special to me, but she traded a beta planter, and i knew it was worth something good so i accepted, but i instantly wanted it back, so i asked for it back then she tried scamming me a couple times and later, she said "come to my den" and she said that one of my REAL friends was being "mean" to her, so i said "That's not my problem-Quote by Darling blahblah" or whatever her name was.. And she said "Fine" and locked me out of her den... XD She is sooooooooooooo immature. Btw, her user is Cherryblossom2015, and she has NO idea i am saying this :)
