Today, my dad took my car keys off my keychain and hid them from me. His reasoning was, "I don't want you to be driving during the winter." Guess who has to walk ten miles a day to work, through the New England snow. FML

You should reason with him. That sounds quite a bit more dangerous than driving in the snow.

Make him walk 10 miles in the snow and cold one day and see how he likes it.

too bad new england doesnt have any snow

Does New England not offer public transit? If not maybe he could car pool

Or just ask him to drive OP instead then.

I live on New Hampshire. It was 70 degrees up until the end of December. We've only had 2 inches of snow all winter. I think OP needs a wahmbulance.

Hide something of his with some crazy logic.

Make him walk 10 miles in the snow and cold one day and see how he likes it.

He's done it before, with a boner. UPHILL.

he probably did, hence why he did it at all.

Not just uphill, but uphill both ways.

I live in New England and considering temperatures, a car is much safer. You should bring that up, try and convince him.

I could never imagine having to walk... I live in one of the snowiest cities in America by population thanks to lovely lake effect snow, and even walking from my dorm building to class can be rough.

Walking 10 miles in 6 feet of snow? No problem.

What does population have to do with with measuring which city has the most snow? Besides doesn't more population make it less of a hardship than less populated or a more rural location? You would have the luxury of more services to combat dealing with it like more and better plowed roads and more public transit routes? I'm guessing you live near the Great Lakes. They get some beautiful but wicked effects on the shorelines. I love seeing the photos every year. It's fascinating. Thankfully I only visit in the warmer months I don't think I could live there full time. I may get a lot of black ice but rarely have to shovel or worry about roof damage and our heating bills are a lot lower. For you guys up north layering isn't a fashion statement its survival!

Well, at least there's not very much snow as of yet, so you have time to talk with him. Walking ten miles in the cold still sucks, though. :/

You should definitely try to convince him to give you your keys back. Good luck.

do you not have a spare? time to get to looking. good luck on finding them.

Are you a new driver OP? If so I can understand why he would worry especially during winter conditions, however walking 10 miles in bad weather also sounds dangerous so I hope you can reason with him
