This sounds like the urban legend that goes...... This husband who drives a cement truck comes home for lunch on his birthday without telling his wife. When he gets there he sees a brand new red convertible in the drive way. He peeks in the window and sees his wife laughing and talking to a man inside. Filled with jealousy and convinced she's having and affair with the man, he backs up the cement truck and fills the red convertible with cement. The wife hears this and she and the man come running out. She screams at him, "What are you doing? I just bought this convertible from this salesmen for you for your birthday, I was going to surprise you when you got home!" hmmmmmm......
i don't think you should jump to calling him a spoiled brat-- he obviously didn't expect or ask for a bmw, and it's not his fault if his parents make a lot of money. you could call him someone very inconsiderate with anger issues, though. and i personally don't think it's right to drive around in cars like that. just imagine being some poor dad who lives in a rowhome who has to worry if he can put food on the table, and seeing some wasteful rich guy speeds by in his flashy bmw. that can't make you feel good. and besides, it's like a prep-mobile
I disagree. There's nothing morally wrong about driving an expensive car if you earned the money you paid for it. It's not as if the car just falls into your lap; you have to produce a product or service of equivalent value. And if you've done that, you have every right to drive that car. Just because it might make someone else feel bad about themselves doesn't mean it's wrong for you to own it. If the guy you drive past chooses to be upset about it, that's his problem. He hasn't earned the car. You have. And it's not "wasteful" if it has value to you. It's simply not fair or feasible for everyone to restrict themselves, in the material sense, to the lowest common denominator. I can't have a nice car because a poor dad can't have one? I guess that poor dad can't have that rowhome, because it might upset a homeless person. People ought to be allowed to own the things they've paid for without being treated as if they are morally bankrupt. I do agree with your first comment, however. There wasn't enough evidence to call him a "spoiled brat." Inconsiderate with anger issues, yes.
While moderating FML's i saw one that said "Today was my 16th birthday and I asked for a black mercedes, this morning my dad told me to go outside and 'Get the paper' when I came back there was a green mercedes sitting in my driveway FML." now that guy is definetly a spoiled asshole, this kid on the other hand he may or may not be, depends.
209, even if his parents are loaded he's still a spoiled brat. many kids with rich parents still have to EARN the money for their car, because they aren't spoiled. this kid gets a free one as a gift because he IS spoiled. and he's a brat because he thinks he can go and key "someone else's" car because it's blocking his driveway.
Spoiled brat? Yes you could call him that. I would call him a vandal. He destroyed the paint on a car because he felt entitled to. If you try to argue with that sentence, tell me where you live and I'll come over and destroy your belongings because I am entitled. If it was MY car and I saw someone keying it I would fill the scratches with blood from their face.
WOW!! you're stupid...even if it wasn't yours, you shouldn't have done that, you're just rude!! YDI x 100!!
I'm sure they read the FML. The fact of the matter is that when the OP was keying said car, he didn't know it was his. Ergo the question, "How would you feel if someone did that to your car?" Being a douchebag and keying your own car is different than doing it to a stranger. OP, You're a jackass. YDI
I hope your parents fix the paint and keep it for themselves. YDI for taking your anger out on what you thought was a stranger's car.
I wouldn't put it past the OP to say that it had already been keyed when he got home rather than taking responsibility for his own actions. This FML might be the only chance his parents have of finding out it was their son who keyed his new car rather than a stranger.
