No, they don't. Some parents think it's valuable to instil work ethics into their offspring by encouraging them to work after school in order to pay for their own expensive and not entirely necessary items (ie cars). Otherwise you see what's happened here, a kid with a sense of entitlement so big that she's bitching because her parents damaged HER car that SHE DID NOTHING TO PAY FOR HERSELF. Kids are not entitled to nice cars, regardless of how rich their parents are. After having served some of these punks while working in hospitality while I was at uni, a little time actually EARNING their money would do a lot to teach these kids not to treat people in customer service like they are utterly beneath them, simply because not everyone gets everything paid for by mother and father.
"Everyone needs someone to look down on, even murderers look down on child molesters in the prison" They would still most likely treat you like crap simply because they could. That sounds absurd but it's been my experience that even people who have worked in jobs dealing in customer service will still treat servers simply because that's the kind of person they are. I am not saying that all people are like because that would be unfair because there are people who are kind to their servers, cashiers, etc.. I am just saying that the teenagers and adults who look down on the servers of the world now, will still do so thirty years from now because it makes them feel important.
how about you get a job and the BUY yourself a nicer car like the rest of the world. I mean at least you have a car whether crap or not.
wow, your parents bought you a car, but it wasn't the Mercedes like you wanted. FYL, OP. I can't imagine the hardships you must face in your life. like, what if one day they make you get a job?! FYL for being a spoiled brat. you're not entitled to shit. you should have to ride a bike around and get a job so you can learn the value of money.. you are a waste of life. when you have to spend your own money, you probably won't want to spend it so frivolously. Fuck your parents life for raising such a shitty excuse for a person.
Good parents, now you can crash into their car without feeling bad.
76, what the fuck are you talking about? The parents made what's called a "self-fulfilling prophecy". It's the dad's fault the car was wrecked, not the OP's. They didn't want to get the OP a car because they thought s/he'd wreck it, and by God, they proved themselves right, didn't they? Ugh, sorry for the wall of text. It's just that the seeming inability or refusal of some of this site's denizens to comprehend the posts here irks me.
i fully brought my own car. lil red corolla. in relatively quick sucession I managed to rear end a vr4, smash the front while reversing and aquaplane off the motorway into a big wooden sign. your parents had the right ideA, I think you just exceeded expectations :p
