View Full Version : Help free my Pineapple Sunday

As some of you know, I just bought a KoAloha Pineapple Sunday. The good news is, my spouse lent me some money to make the purchase. The bad news is, since my Ameritage case arrived today, it is now going to be locked up and held hostage until I pay the loan back.:(

I was able to negotiate one get out of jail free clause: if I can get 100 people to sign an online petition to free Meli (the Pineapple Sunday), I am able to get her back.

So whichever comes first: the money or the petition. And believe me, knowing the state of my finances, I figure the petition is faster.

If you have a minute to kill, and want to help out a fellow UU'er, or you just think it is a crime against humanity to let a KoAloha Pineapple Sunday languish away in a closet, please sign.

Thanks guys and gals!

Against my better judgement, I've signed. Hope you get it. After my dog died I had people sign a petition for me to get another dog. I got over 400 signatures and he still said NO! Hope you have better luck.

Your spouse sounds pretty strict, sounds like he is acting like a "azzhole" Seems like there is some trust issue's , holding the uke until you pay it off? Were da trust at??? Kinda werid. Even when you make loans at the bank they cut you more slack then this dude.

Ain't the concept of the loaning money, is to the buy the things you want now and use them now until you pay it off? Its like borrowing money but the guy wants to hold the money until you pay him back..

The whole concept is so very strange to me. I've never loaned my wife money. I would give her money, if she wanted it, but I wouldn't ask for repayment.

The idea of keeping you from having something you obviously want....badly....has nothing to do with money, IMHO. This sounds more like control, or dominance. But I'm just sayin'....

your gonna have your uke by the end of the day i reckon, then you should apply a firm kick to the family jewls for holding your uke with firm words of "you touch my uke again, and im cutting it off"

Ok, just a few more replies before going back to lurk mode...

If this isn't just a cute little game between us, the OP, and her husband - maybe she should call his bluff, send the uke and case back, and use that money to drag both of them to marriage counseling. If my husband did this, it would be like we were strangers with trust issues. But maybe there's a reason for the trust issues, hence... perhaps therapy is a better idea than a new uke. I dunno.

If it's just a cute little game, throw us a hint and I'll be happy to sign! :)

Okay you guys, while I certainly appreciate your defense of me, and definitely appreciate the Free Meli signatures, we have both been sitting here laughing at the comments on the petition. My fave? "Sir, it is inhuman to hold an innocent ukulele hostage for mere money...sex I could understand, but not money! I call shame on you sir!"

So no worries, no spousal abuse is happening, no domination, no power trip, nothing other than the fact I'm married to a boodiehead who thinks it is hysterically funny to hold it ransom. Trust me, we are fine. Though I still need those signatures to keep coming, I'm 20% of the way there! And while I'm laughing, I still want that ukulele back!

Thanks for the concern though... :)

Thanks again to all of you, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the final 22. :)

Free free Meli's free!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I ran around the house like a crazy person screaming and yelling as I found her in the closet (behind suitcases) in her Ameritage case. She was only apart from me a little while (she didn't get locked up until her Ameritage case came last week) but now I feel whole again! I actually said "My preciousssssssssssssssssssssssssss" like Gollum. (Thought of your signature Ukeeffect as I did it).

Love you guys and gals and many mahalos for helping me to regain her in my possession -- believe me it was much faster than how long it will take me to pay back the loan.

Any doubt as to which uke is now my favorite? Don't worry I still love my Kamaka and Kanile'a but this is (for me anyway, and I'm willing to admit it is a UAS side effect of it being the newest) my favorite.
