Default Re: No more Ranger for me

hm i can understand where your coming from and the way it works in my family is my dad can do whatever the hell he wants... if he wants to take my truck away you dam right he is regardless if i paid for half of it (which i did) or even if i paid for the whole thing. he wouldn't keep it though... he would eventually have to give it back.

i dunno dude. dont get caught up in "not letting it bother you" and "letting them win". just talk to them and tell them truth about how you feel and what not and it should work itself out.

Well, it wasn't hard since you said it yourself.

I didn't get a truck until I was 21. My family couldn't afford to fork out any amount of money to get me one, even a junker. I got my truck after I joined the Army, and incidentally, I didn't bother to get my license till then either. What was the point if I had no wheels, right?

With your parents, it's not about win/lose. That's all you man. I'm sure they just want to be treated with respect, and for you to listen to them. I have 2 kids of my own, and that's all I want them to do, LOL, to listen to me. Doesn't always work out. It's called growing pains.

With you still 16, they can have all control of your belongings all they want. What you need to do is treat these things as if it's a privlage, not a right. Because that's what driving your own truck is.

All that being said, I also understand how frusterating it can be. Most of us here can, we were all 16 at one time. I refuse to say I was an angel LOL. Although, I think your mom might have served better by letting you go cool off. Did you sa you needed to go cool off? Or did you just pull the "Whatever, I'm outa here" sort of thing? There's a big difference in that, and how she might respond. I'd say you've got some appologising to do, and sit down like adults, not yelling, and work out a plan together to get your wheels back. Maybe you could do with letting them know you need to cool off, and go get some space when there's an argument. But there's another part to cooling off. You've got to come back, and calmly work out whatever the issue is. They'll respect you more for that, and see you as a responsible person, rather than tossing a fit.

Just my 0.2

Well there is one thing here, if your parents really are gonna keep the Ranger then you don't have to pay for it anymore. I think you're just being punished, and they'll give it back soon. Unless your parents are really stupid they're not gonna keep it because no parent wants the extra hassle of driving their kid to work and back every day.

I see what your saying. My parents always threaten to take mine. I saved all my money and have paid for everything on my truck. The title is in my name and so is the registration and i am 17 (16 at the time). But legally she can still take it from me whenever she wants which i don't like until i am 18.So that's why i only have one key and it is on me at all times

Moral of the story be nice to your parents. One day you wont have them, and you'll wish you did. I'm 10 years older than you. Iv been through the same situation you are in. All I do is just apologize to my parents and everything goes back as if nothing happened. You honestly have no idea how lucky you are. It seems like your step dad is helping you out by buying you a truck. And then screaming and arguing with ur parents. Id take your keys too and whoop your ass. Don't take little things they do for you for granted.

And if you knew where they were, would you steal the truck and feel victorious?

Honestly not worth holding out dude. I'd go appologise and work something out, and stick to it. You do that, you'll be a better man for it. Trust me, admitting when you're wrong is much better than always being right. Even if your point wasn't wrong (whatever the arguement was over in the first place), admitting that your attitude, or the way you acted about the whole thing, was wrong, will show maturity. They'll respect you more for it.

times sure have changed: when i was 16 you could purchase a vehicle, get it titled and have it insured all in your name. why? because the state of MN figures if your a licensed driver, you are responsible enough to handle ownership/insurance of a motor vehicle.

My mom punished me once by taking my 3k pos car to work.




While she left her spanking new 50k sports car unattended.




Best punishment day ever, won all 3 races that day.
