because it was a BMW, not a Jag. Can't make this up people. Spoiled kids in real life are way worse than our imaginations. And in India too, not just in the US.

And pops apologizes because he couldn't afford a new Jag. Now we know why he is the way he is.....

“not if i wanted to continue living!”

You raised a good kid.




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men
except by believing all possible evil
of evil men.

Perfection is the enemy of progress. -Winston Churchill

-An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

Replace the car with a new pair of cheap shoes and a bus ticket.

My response would have been, ‘Okey doke, junior. From now until you’re 21, all your presents — Xmas, b’day, whatever — will be in the form of a charitable contribution. If you’d like to name a charity for each one, good, it will go in your name. It not, your decision. We’ll talk about this again at 21.’

Nice suggestions cbelt and blank.

But, I'd bet good money that if Dad had had the balls to do either one, this would never have happened.

For the record, when my son needed a car for his internships, I sold him my 13 year old Matrix for $1. He's still driving it 3 years later.

Heh, after finally getting my grades up above a B a couple of years into college my parents let me have the 8 year old stick shift wagon that nobody wanted to drive and hadn't been driven in a few years. Drove it for another 27 years before getting rid of it last year. It's all in how the parents do their job raising you.

My parents' responsibility was to get me through high school without dying. Anything beyond that was a gift.

The greatest gift any parent can bestow in a child is the ability to discern between want and need.
