My Son and the Car!

For those who have been reading my blog for a while, you'll remember my son's driving record. He didn't get driving privileges til he was almost 18 because of a deal we made about him making A's and B's. He graduated and we told him when he got a job, he could drive. He got the job and Vince let him use his Mazda 626 but told him -- the first ticket or wreck you have and the car is history. Chad drove about 2 weeks, went to the bank by taking the LONG way around town and got a ticket going 77 in a 55 mile zone so he lost driving privileges. That was probably in June. He was able to go to driving school to get the ticket off his record and then he worked enough to buy the Mazda 626 from Vince and pay for his own insurance. That transfer happened yesterday. Chad drove to work and back last night. No ticket. Today he decided to go to the same bank. He gets there and calls me and says he had a flat, could Vince come help him. Vince went and yes, he had a flat. He has a tire that is shredded . . Chad doesn't have a clue how it happened. The tire dealer we use is closed til Monday. Sam's doesn't have the same tires so he has to wait til Monday to get it fixed.

I told him to never go to that bank again . . it seems to bring bad luck. He just can't believe he can't drive again til Monday .. Tuesday actually because I'll have to take the car to get it fixed while he's at school.

Some keds are just hard to figure out. Sounds like he is alot like my daughter. Things happen with no expaination. Maybe he should change banks, and he is getting all the bad stuff out of the way early in his driving career. Some lessons in life are a bit harder than others. Its kinda funny if you think about it.

Poor Chad! Tell him I remember well how all those unexplained events happened to Mom's car! :)

And also tell him I am NOT laughing! No, I'm not.........:)

My dear son wrecked my car once. Drove it into the side of the house. Did I mention he was not old enough to drive?

Hmm, I think I'd make him buy two tires, so if another mysteriously shreds he'll be ready... lol

I'm with you --- the bank is bad luck. But congrats to Chad AND YOU because I know what a relief it'll be to have him transporting himself to work and school. Don't you wish you had 3 others!!!!
