What the FUCK is wrong with you guys?! I ask for advice and you tell me that I need a job, and my mommy and daddy do everything for me...

First of all, my mother is not in the picture, my Dad works nights, and my stepmom is paraplegic, so if I'm not at school or asleep chances are I'm doing something for her.

In no way was I asking for money from you, no clue where you got that idea.

I already have a job set up in a month, why would I get a job between now and then?

I have no payments, I got the truck from my grandfather after he passed, of course my parents pay for my gas and insurance, since 70% of my driving is me doing something to them.

i work odd jobs to make money to pay off my truck, my parents used to pay for gas becauuse they wanted me to go to school. im deaf so getting a job is fucking hard right now.


parents still pay insurance. theres nothing wrong with mom and dad helping you as long as its not taken advantage of.

LMFAO! I love these types of threads.

You've already gotten a ticket, so nobody here is gonna feel sorry for you since obviously you didn't learn your lesson.

The funny thing is, it doesn't matter what anybody tells you, that job you supposedly have coming up isn't set in stone, and never will be. Since you've fucked yourself twice now, you may as well listen to the advice given and get two jobs so that you're covered for the 30 in a 60 ticket you're about to get next.

Hell the first month or so I rode my bike to work because I was waiting to take my drivers test.
Yup, infact im sure there's millions of 17 year olds that go to school! But of that group, how many go to highschool as well as drive 45 min. to a community college at the same time? In addition they have commitments to their church on Sunday/Tuesday/Wednesday? My college classes are FREE books included, im sorry but I choose free college education over making money which I can and will do later.

"Quit making excuses"? Quite pretending your life was/is the mold everyone else's should fall into.... I'd LOVE a job but I know I do not have enough time to hold one. You think i wouldn't love having a steady disposable income? Get real

blah blah blah, got a ticket, it's $175.
Help me figure out a way to get the money so my Dad doesn't have to find a place for my body?

Much appreciated
Ok Tom, I'm not going to bust on ya. FYI it sounds as though the officer gave you a break. Red light/Stop sign violations in CA can run up to $435.

If you can appeal it you may be able to get them to lower the amount as well as buy yourself some time while waiting for the court date. (at least that's how it is here in Mass) Also the officer going to the court date gets O/T so they usually dont mind, I know I dont.

As far as finding the money, you could always sell stuff on craigslist or ebay.

One last thing, slowing down does not equal stop. Let me as you this, If I was hitting you in the ribs with a baseball bat, would you want me to slow down or stop?

Problem is, this kid has plenty of time to go out and fuck around in his truck, so obviously his schedule isn't jam packed like yours is. This kid has yet to come in here and provide any credible reasons as to why he can't get a job, so until then, we reserve the right to assume that he sits at home and simply refuses to get a job.

GET A JOB YOU LAZY BUM! If your out at 2 am blowing stop signs you could be working. And yes walmart will let you work at 2 am. Been there done that, dont complain to us about how you knowingly blew a stop sign and then want us to figure out how your going to pay for it. You screwed up, time to nut up and shut up.
