His Car, My Sanity…….

IMG00089

He’d had this car for less than two months!! All 3 boys who were in the car walked away, no injuries. Mom had nightmares and heart trouble for awhile, though. I do have to mention that he bought the car, we didn’t pay one penny. We flipped it upright and he still drives it. But this is my most responsible child, I have 4 more to go through this with. Lord help me……..

    In his defense those types of roads are really hard to travel for less than experienced drivers…..Glad to hear that no one was hurt

    Glad to hear everyone involved was okay.  I have 5, and the other day, I was watching my two oldest try to figure out how to accomplish a chore.  Both of them had just been placed in the Talented and Gifted programs at their school, and watching them, all I could do was shake my head and think, “If it’s this hard raising the smart ones…”

    I pulled this same maneuver with my first car (a beater, and on a dirt road) two weeks after I got my license. And I haven’t had even so much as a fender bender since. 🙂 Just tell him to keep the shiny side up.

    So glad no one got hurt.  But maybe each of them learned something from the experience – not that they would admit it

    First, let me say how glad I am that no one was hurt. Second, my only child.. he’s almost 25.. is on his (Hope you’re sitting down for this one) 11th car. Yes, you read right. We bought him the first 2. Those accidents weren’t his fault. But he seems to have some weird alien mojo that makes any vehicle (or computer or stereo or anything electrical) either die.. or get wrecked within months of getting it. He now just buys old beaters and when they finally crap out, he calls the junk guy, who promptly pays him $350 for the honor of towing said dead car away, then buys another one.. It’s crazy, I tell ya.. I don’t sleep well, that’s for sure! lol

    My husband did something similar as a teenager.  Except his involved a minivan, a dirt road, a nice crumbly cliff and a transformer.  The upside, he has had no tickets or accidents since.

    Yeah…My dad let me start driving his old Ford farm truck when I was 12 or 13. I drove through his fields and the paths around the house. Then, once I got my license, I had a 30 minute drive through winding country roads to go anywhere. All that, and I waited until college to have my first accident. I hit a guard rail on campus and peeled the front end back. Knock on wood and thank the good Lord, that’s the only one that was my fault. Hopefully he’ll learn from it and you won’t have anymore problems from here on out.
