OMG what a spoilt rich brat. Was going to use a stronger term but decided to make the Mods job easier.
When I bought my first car, I saved up all the money for it. It was a real clunker. When I went to pay for it Dad said, "Since you saved up the money I will pay for half it."
I raised my kids likewise. The eldest daughter's first car was a real junker. The first thing that went out was the starter. "Dad, when will you have time to fix my car?" "Never" which sent her crying to mom. I told her she should of ask when will you have the time to help me fix the car.
Next thing that went was the brakes. She learned quickly. "Dad, when will you have the time to help me fix the car." She bought the brake pads and we fixed that weekend. There were several other things that went wrong with the car that we had father/daughter time fixing. At first she didn't like getting grease under her nails but got use to it.
She married a salior that just enlisted in the Navy. Now new Navy enlisties don't make much money. She would do brake jobs, tune ups and small repairs for all the women in the apartment complex when their husbands were out at sea. She would make them buy the parts and charge maybe a $20 fee for labor. Win win for both parties. She was known as the "Car Lady." Someone would call and she would tot her toolbox across the lot at the apartments and fix it. Of course I got a lot of phone calls from her.
When my son was 15 1/2 the neighbor had a car for sell and the top end of the engine was littarly in the trunk. I bought it for him and he bought the parts. Of course I wouldn't work on it if he wasn't around.
I agree, I would have taken it back and bought her a blue clunker. "Now there is your blue car. You pay for all the repairs."
My cats aren't spoilt, Just well loved.
