Tamas at the workplace

Recommended Posts

So who here brings their tama babies to work?

 

I'm 23, I work as a cashier at Petco, and I keep my 4U in my pocket while i'm working. On monday it'll be my new mix's first time out! :)

I mostly pull it out on my break, and sometimes my co-workers will ask what it is, or they'll say something like "Oh, my daughter had one of those!"

I'm kinda shy so I usually try to keep it to myself.. :( Not because I think it's silly but because I have no idea what they'll think or say. :o

 

Do you take your tamas to work with you? Share your stories! :lol:

I bring mine to school occasionally, but I'm always really afraid it will get broken or lost or even stolen. but it is like a little adventure for your tama to bring it with you :D

I do! My work shirt has a breast pocket which isn't big enough for a colour (I've tried, it looks really suspicious), but fits Connections perfectly. I usually bring my V3 with me (I have a long-lived oldie on there, who's been coming to work with me since she was a baby). I tend to keep it to myself mostly. I find ways to sneakily check on the tama throughout my shift, and so far no one's noticed (I've been doing it for months now)! Haha.

 

:wub:

I bring mine to work! When I was just running the V3 I'd put it on the lanyard I wear everywhere for easy access (and I work at an early childhood centre so the kids see it and they're always so fascinated by it!), but now I'm running my V4.5 as well, so I'm not sure about the whole lanyard thing anymore, because they kept getting in the way of each other when I tried it, so I just put them in my pockets if I have any now!

 

I actually remember last week when I put them in my pockets and the kids saw that I didn't have one on my lanyard anymore and some of them kept asking me where it was!

There's no way I can bring one to school, haha...out of embarrassment for letting them out as a guilty pleasure and in fear of it getting broken/damaged or somehow accidentally forgetting it.

 

When I go to uni or work, perhaps if I could do so privately without judgmental peers or people that have similar interests whom I can trust in.

I work in an office environment and bring my spacey m!x with me every day to work. It just chills in my cube with me. :lol:

I would like to, but I work in a kitchen where people are judgey about that sort of thing (They regularly make fun of the fact I collect mlp and also make fun of my two pet bunnies). I wouldn't want to draw more attention to myself really so I just keep my p's on the 'time change' screen to sort of pause it while I'm at work

I used to bring mine to work (I work remotely from home now, so I don't have to anymore, lol). While working in retail, I'd keep it in my purse in the break room and take it out during lunch or quick breaks. Most of my coworkers were super curious and loved the nostalgia of it--they were mostly all 90s kids who remembered the originals, so it was a blast from the past for them. Some of them thought it was a little odd I was still playing with Tamas, but they got used to it. ;)

I prefer not to since I work in a kitchen. Don't want food all over my poor v3.

I have only ever brought my Tama's to work once (over the Christmas period when it was quiet and I was running three!)

 

Everyone just had a giggle and went on a nostalgic trip and wanted to have a go on the games.

 

I wish I could bring atleast one in to work with me but due to business I doubt I'd be able to care for them properly so I leave them at home :(

They make fun of your rabbits? That seems pretty strange since having a pet is pretty normal, and rabbits are just as feminine as hamsters, or cats for the matter (all three are fluffy, somewhat feeble creatures).

First time I took one of my tamas out at work my whole team like wanted to see it so my supervisor called a meeting and we passed it around... it was pretty funny. (I work in a call center for netflix at the moment. So we're all nerds) the boys were disappointed tamas had gotten so girly looking, but the girls really liked it, one of them liked it enough that I showed her where to get a tama P. That was a while ago now most people just like to peek at it but dont seem to mind/care any more.

      I am making a guess that this is the right place to put this but honestly I don’t know if it is. 
      Anyway I want to pre order a tamagotchi P!x because tamagotchis usually sell out really quickly in my area. I also live in a rural area so stores don’t get deliveries more than like once a month and if I don’t pre order it there’s a good chance I have to wait years to get it. 
      the only problem I’ve encountered is the camera on the P!x. I need to know how much you have to use it to care for your friend or if there might be a way to get out of having to use it.  I’m blind so the camera might provide a huge problem for me depending on how much I have to use it. The touch keys shouldn’t be a problem so long as the tama still makes some sort of sound. 
      I know no one is going to know for sure but the more I can start getting an idea of if I’ll even be able to use it the better. That way I don’t have to waste my time with it if I can’t. (I’ll still feel a little bit left out because the newer ones are getting less and less accessible to me and honestly I have a feeling that soon I’ll have to just stop getting the new ones all together)
      thabks !

      A while ago, I bought 2 used Tamagotchi Connections at a pawn shop. They worked just fine, but the battery cover screw was corroded in both of them:


      I searched the internet for ways to remove the corrosion. Some people would even use ketchup, but the most effective way was letting the screws sit in vinegar, then using a toothbrush to remove the rest of the corrosion, and finally cleaning them with alcohol. However, due to me being busy with school, a year passed and I still hadn't tried cleaning the screws, until a few days ago when I had some spare time and decided to try it out. I thought, why not demonstrate the whole process on TamaTalk to help people out? 
       
      First, I removed the screws from the battery covers. Tamagotchi Connection battery covers have some sort of retainer that keeps the screw from falling out. To remove the screw, I had to hold the retainer using my fingernail, then pull on the screw while twisting it counterclockwise. Now, both the screw and the retainer came out. The retainer was also a bit corroded, as well as the screw hole in the battery cover. I cleaned those with alcohol.
      Now, the fun part. I let the screws sit in apple cider vinegar for around 30 minutes.

      Then, I scrubbed them with a toothbrush several times. Both the screws came out looking way better, but one of them still had some ugly black marks where the corrosion was. As a last resort, I sandpapered it. I have no idea what the exact grit of the sandpaper was, but eyeing it, it seemed to be around ~200 grit. This improved the appearance of the screw drastically. Here are the results!


      Comparing it to a non-corroded screw of another tama, the finish looks less shiny. But it's a lot better than a corroded screw! 
      I hope this tutorial was easy to understand! If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

      Heya,new to tamagotchi.
      Found a morino tamagotch in a thrift store
      But it wasn't working so i replaced the very old batteries with semi old ones.
      It kinda worked until the batteries ran out
      Though i noticed that theres something wrong
      Like,it turns off and on with a light slap
      So it means egg after egg after egg
      Then i bought some new ones but while screwing it on to close the screen fades to nothing
      But when the lid isnt fully closed,it works just fine.though that'd make it hard to put in a bag or my pocket
      Also works without the lid except everytime the batteries move it turns off then on again.
