I didn't even know they TAUGHT that in college. (You know. Common Sense.)


Bitchy and Sassy were both home for the weekend to attend a family function, and it was decided that Sassy would leave her billion dollar (free) car at home so that the various aches and pains it was experiencing could be fixed.


I didn't realize any of this, of course, until I was informed by her that Bitchy was refusing to allow her to take HER car, that sits in our driveway while college is in session for Bitchy.


Being the incredibly WONDERFUL and GIVING mother that I am, I offered her MY car.


Keep in mind, mine has been indisposed for FOUR MONTHS because we thought that it had a broken crank shaft. It was just recently discovered that it was everything except that, and now $950 later I am finally back in my car.



"You can take my Sorrento back to school. You'll be back in a week for break, right? I can live one more week without it." It was just about then that I was returned to the last four years of my life.



"WHAT??????HELL NO!!! That car is a GAS GUZZLER. I don't want to spend my money on gas. I want the Honda. "



Blink. blink.




I stared at her in confusion. "Who are you and where is my daughter?"






I don't know what they're putting in the water at the University of Podunk, but I like it.

What the hell? You mean you aren't going to give her gas money to go with the car?! Wow, you're mean!

When did Kias become gas hogs?

I guess with gas prices these days they are all gas hogs.

How quickly they learn when that cash comes out of their pockets!

TeenBlogger said...

Gas? That's the stuff you put in the car to make it run, right? You mean it's not free? Weird...

;) I'm still at the point where $10 is WAY to expensive (which is when I beg my parents to buy and usually if I do it right, they will. That's the only reason I ever get A's on my tests).

Love the things they learn when Mom &
Dad aren't right there to hand them another $20.

Scope said...

I think a class in "Personal Finance" should be a required college course.

(And it appears she is her father's daughter after all!)

Ooh, a new place to live! How many bedrooms? Will your son be able to go to the same school? Oooooh, moving, yuck! I hate moving, having done it far too often in my life! However, once you're moved life will be grand. You hang in there!!!
