Well, after 7 hours out with my oldest son yesterday… he has a new car! New to him that is!
And no thanks to me really. I was just there for moral support!
After he found the one he wanted we called in the pro!! Daddy!
Darren and I neither one have that “negotiator” ability. We are pretty much here on the planet for other uses. Not always sure what those are… but they certainly are not to wheel-and-deal!
But Dad came to the rescue and helped Darren score on the car that he wanted!
Yaaaaay for Darren!
He is a happy camper today! He couldn’t wait to get it home and take his little brothers for a ride before he went to work.
His beloved truck will stay here… it’s got a lot of history and Darren is not willing to give it up. That’s okay, because Dad really wants to hang onto it too! Always good to have a truck around! They decided that they can tinker with it and use it for Home Depot runs!
It was Darren’s Grandpa’s truck and he gave it to Darren a few years ago. It’s as old as Darren is!
He just got this shell for it last year.
It was a great first car for Darren… but I am glad that he has moved on and bought himself a more dependable commuter car.
And by the way… the guy at the dealership was impressed that we weren’t buying it FOR him. He said he see’s it everyday… parents buying their 16 and 17 year olds brand spanking new cars.
Okay… first of all I couldn’t afford to buy all my boys their first car… but even if I could I wouldn’t.
If you don’t have to work for it… you don’t truly appreciate it. That’s what I believe.
And that’s what I think is wrong with a lot of youth of today. They get so much handed to them… and then they get out into the world and expect the same kind of treatment.
Okay… I’m getting off my soap box now!
Anyway… Yippy for Darren! I am very happy for him!
