My dad got me a new car (BMW) for my 16th birthday. I crashed it last weekend. He's punishing me by only getting me a used Toyota to replace it, and he's going to pick the color! He also says it's my fault because I was drunk when I crashed it. He's being TOTALLY unreasonable and this is borderline child abuse, amirite?
I think he's trolling. Homepage it! :D
Just ignore him and he'll go away.
I'm not a "he."
Of course you aren't, sir.
You're making me want to say so many things. First of all, to answer your question, NO. It's not. Try being beaten every night by your crazed mother and drunk father, and also having to get a job to pay for most of your own things. Fucking unappreciative douchebag.
Then we'll have to agree to disagree, as I absolutely see as it as what it is, which is nothing other than straight-up child abuse.
Just ignore this dude, he's troll. I have an incredibly hard time believing that there are people so spoiled, sheltered and unreasonable that they consider this child abuse. I bought my own first car with my own money which is in fact a used Toyota thank you very much. My parents didn't pay for my college I got a job to support myself. If you really believe that your dad is being unfair then I will glady trade lives with you. At least you and your dad live in the same state. If you're being serious then be thankful for what you have, everyone else here would kill to have a dad like that and if you're being sarcastic then you are nothing more then a pathetic human being trying to offend people whose lives really are awful.
I'm happy that you're apparently so proud that you bought a crappy car with your own money. As my dad always said, poor people like to try to convince themselves that everything is an accomplishment.
I'm proud that my dad believes that providing for the ones you love and being a good person is worth money and cars. For the record, I'm not poor and if you put my car next to a brand new Toyota you couldn't tell the difference but nice try.
Great. I'm glad you and your working-class family are happy. I enjoy having non-disgruntled servers.
Hah you may be richer than me but you're not fit to clean my shoes.
Why would I want to clean your shoes in the first place?
I'm confused. Is this meant to be sarcastic?
No, I'm serious. I really can't believe that everyone is pretending to disagree with me.
Sarcasm is shit over the computer. Did this actually happen to you, and do you think it is actually unfair? Your post seems so ridiculous that I couldn't tell.
No, I am not being sarcastic. This actually happened, and I'm so mad at my dad because he's being sooooo unfair. Why do you have a hard time believing that? Don't you get mad at your parents when they're unfair to you?
You want some cheese with that whine?
I'm not whining. What's your point?
It's just the way you said it. Everytime you say you're not being sarcastic, you say something that seems like it would never be said except as a joke. Like when you said "He's being TOTALLY unreasonable and this is borderline child abuse, amirite?" That seems too extreme to be serious. Then when you said we were PRETENDING to disagree with you. Obviously we don't think it's unfair. You destroyed your BMW which your dad got for you, and now he's willing to get you another car, which you will probably also destroy. Post this on FML, and I guarantee if it even gets homepaged, you will get thousands of downvotes. And yes, I do sometimes get mad at my parents, but not over something like this. If you want to pick the colour, buy your own car.
But it is totally unreasonable. He's being mean for no reason.
He just bought you a fucking car! Then you destroyed it, and now he's buying you another fucking car! If you want a BMW and you want to pick the colour, then buy your own. Amirite.net is no place for spoiled brats like you.
No, he's being MEAN on purpose by buying a crappy car and not letting me pick the color. There's no reason for him to be mean on purpose.
Would you rather buy your own car? Then you get to pick EVERYTHING.
I don't have enough money to buy a car. What's your point?
My point is, YOU'RE GETTING A FREE CAR!!! When someone buys you something, you say "Thank you!" not "YOU GOT THE WRONG COLOR YOU SON OF A BITCH!! YOU'RE THE WORST DAD EVER!!! I'M GOING TO WHINE ABOUT THIS ON THE INTERNET!"
But he's my dad. It's his JOB to give me a car. That doesn't mean he can lord it over me and use it as a punishment.
It's his JOB to buy you stuff? What are you, 5?
YES, it means he can use it as punishment. You think he's going to buy you a $100,000 car after you totaled the first one? You did something unspeakably stupid with your car, and your punishment is to get another car which is not quite as good. You can go to jail for drinking and driving. Getting a replacement car that's the wrong colour is a much lighter punishment if you ask me.
Of course it's his job to get me things. How else would I get them? And I would never get sent to jail for something like drinking and driving.
You are NOT invincible just because you are 16. You could be sent to jail, or you could die, or you could kill someone else.
No it is not his job to buy you EVERYTHING YOU WANT. It is his job to buy you what you need to survive, and it's usually his job to buy your first car. Your FIRST one, not EVERY CAR YOU EVER OWN.
I thought teenagers like you were just a myth so adults could have an excuse to oppress us. I recently had an epic argument over whether or not teenagers were mature and responsible. You're not helping my case.
No, I could NOT be sent to jail for drinking and driving. They took me to jail when I crashed my car, but when my dad showed up they let me go home. And it is absolutely his job to buy me a car.
Do you want some Midol?
He isn't letting you pick the color? WHAT KIND OF FATHER IS HE?!
I admit he's not the worst dad in the world, but he's being mean on purpose for no reason.
Aren't you supposed to be going off to college?
I don't have to go to college. I'm never going to have a job.
And all of you guys who are accusing me of being spoiled are wrong. This bad economy has hit my dad hard too. We have always gone to Paris twice every year, once around Christmas and once in the summer. This year we only went to Paris once, and for Christmas this year we're only going to Hawaii. So you can all think about that while you accuse me of being spoiled, because I have real problems too.
No you're just an idiot who's obituary is going to read "Spoiled rich kid dies of cocaine overdose payed for with his Daddy's money. The deceased had flunked out of every private school he was sent to, was unemployed, and still living with his parents, the poor child was abused by not being able to pick out his own car or go to Paris as often as the starving children in Africa dying of malnutirtion, dehydration, AIDS, and parasites. No one mourns the loss of this pathetic excuse for a human."
Again, I'm not a guy.
I've only done cocaine twice and I don't really like it. I've never flunked a class in my life. And when is the last time YOU did something for the starving children in Africa? Didn't think so.
You think that's bad? My family bought me Rose-Art crayons once.
Are you a white?
What does that have to do with anything?
idk it just seems like something you'd post on mywhiteproblems
I don't care what race you think this problem is. It's a real problem and it's affecting me!
if you're in your teens, you're an ungreatful douchebag. if you're in college or older, you're still an ungreatful douchebag. be happy you even have a freakin' car.
I don't know if you saw my other post, but I'm not spoiled. This recession has hit my dad hard too.
