Default No more Ranger for me

So I will start off by telling you how I came about getting the Ranger and tell you what just happened. I am 16 years old and a couple months before I got my license my step dad says "hey there's a guy at work has a 98 ranger with a blown engine and said he will sell it to us for $200, we just need to put an engine in it. I said alright sounds good. After 2months and 1500 total we got her running great. The deal was I had to pay my step dad back $1500 while working this summer, no biggie. Now yesterday I wanted to leave my house because all my mom and I were doing was arguing, but she went out to the ranger and took my key. So I was screaming at her in the kitchen to give me my key and she wouldn't. My step dad was out in the Garden and he runs up to the house and is like " GIVE ME THE FUCKING KEY" and my mom gives it to him and he goes " THAT IS MY TRUCK NOT YOURS" and im like " whatever I was waiting for the day you would be a douche bag and hang it over my head" I told him I knew it was a bad idea getting a vehicle from him. So what im getting at here is it sucks when someone gives you something, tells you its yours and when one little thing happens, they take it away. It just pisses me off because I have a schedule to work 5 days a week at work, all summer to pay for the ranger and now I have no ranger or anything. What do you's think on this situation. I understand technically its his ranger, but not when he gives it to me and every time it broke I paid for it.

That's what heppens when you're 16. I guess you will just have to find a ride or another truck. Or apoligize to you mama and stepdad and try to get on their good side again and get your truck back. Then when you're 18, get it in your name

I want it back, but I don't want to make it look like its bothering me, that would just make them feel like they win. I really don't think Im getting it back. even if they do want to give me it back, Im not taking it back, im gonna sell my four wheeler and get another vehicle with that money.

wouldnt you still have to register it in their name since your not 18? and i dont think you can insure it until your 18, at least thats how it is in north carolina. so even if you buy it yourself they can still control it and you until you are 18

Yeah the ranger right now is in my moms name, but if I had paid off the ranger, all 1500, even though its in there name, they wouldn't ever take it from me because they know i paid for it and worked for it.

actually legally they can. They own EVERYTHING you have until you are 18. Legally they can kick you out of the house with nothing on your back, no posessions, no anything when you turn 18. Sure you might pay for everything, but legally it is theirs. So even if you had paid in full for the Ranger, it is theirs and they could have taken it anyways and you would have been out of the money and the truck. So remember this.

Not trying to talk down like you are a little kid, im only 7 years older than you. But that is the way it goes. You can sell your 4 wheeler, and buy a truck, but you will have tto put it into someone's name and insurance that you trust (like a grandparent or friend's parent) unitil you are 18.

You acted like a child. You're getting treated like a child. And you're surprised?

how could you say I acted like a child, when you have no idea what the argument me and my mom were in was about?

I got side swiped in high school coming home one day and old lady totaled my car pinned me between and wall and her car. She paid out of pocket for me to replace my P.O.S. (I bought mine for $1200 and she paid me $3000) of a car rather then go threw here insurance. So I gave the money to my dad and he took me out after a week and a half of sharing a car to buy a new one. So I picked out a used car and my dad financed it for me so I could have my own car again. I remember the one time he said he was going to take it from me. All I said was if I can't use it or drive it, I'm not making the payments. All my dad said was that I sucked and left me alone. But then again I was a good kid and never did anything bad when I was in school so my parents took it easy on me. Which pissed my sister off.

My advice is sit down with you mother and just apologize about what happend (even if you didn't start it) and just talk it out. If you treat your parents with respect and talk it out rather then get hot headed your life will be a lot easier. you only got 2 years left till you can move out.

I use to be a dick to my parents and then for a week I was nice and polite and didn't pick fight with them and it was amazing how much easier life got.

yeah same thing happend to me when i was 17 so i went and bought a better truck and left my parents with the payments and insurance on "There" truck. turned out to be though because a few months later the engine blew while my dad was on his way back from work. so to some this all up i taught them a lesson and saved myself the hassle of a broken truck. im 22 now and we laugh at how it all turned out
