Not everyone is that lucky. I didn't start driving until I was 23 and had enough money to take driving lesson s. I didn't have any friends in the area, my father drives a company vehicle and an unlicensed driver CANNOT drive it or he could risk losing his job, and my mother would get into hysterics within 5 minutes of me being behind the wheel, screaming things like "OH MY GOD, DID YOU EVEN LOOK WHEN YOU TURNED?" and distracting/scaring me.
In the US, Driver's Education is part of the high school curriculum - a class you are expected to take. OMG Wait. Is this the single, solitary instance of the American educational system including something for free that other more social-services-intensive countries actually charge their citizens to learn?
#20, I moved around a lot and none of my high schools even offered driver's education. Not everyone's friends/family have the time to teach them. Also a lot of people who can drive are actually fairly bad at it or at least at teaching someone, so it can be a lot safer to learn from a professional teacher that won't scream or teach incorrect driving.
Most countries in the western world require proffesionals to teach with specially modified cars instead of a random relative in a normal car. The cost of it vary from 500,- to 2000,- easily. It has some downsides like the higher cost but I like to think that it explains the much higher allowed speeds compared to the USA
did you lend your sister money or not? I'm not sure if the quotation marks mean she stole it without you knowing or that you lent her money and she is refusing to pay you back now... if it's the former, tell your sister to pay back within a certain time frame or you will call the cops. it might seem cold, but that shit ain't right and she could end up stealing from someone dangerous... plus it sounds like your sister isn't a child and thus know what she is doing wrong and that consequences will follow. if not, welp, you now have the power to teach her it. if it's borrowing gone wrong, I have no idea how that works but you should have stopped after she didn't pay you back the first time. but I'd hope their would be legal implications to a loan gone wrong, even.an unofficial one.. Also, if you and your sister live together, I'd keep money on the bank and get a credit card (you can keep thr credit card in your wallet or whatever but HIDE the debit card as if your sister finds that, those charges would be harder to dispute than with a credit card.) One last thing. Are your parents aware of this? This sounds like "family meeting" material... Also your parents should know that your sister steals or does not pay loans so they don't have the same thing happen to them. Also if you all live together, I think your parents would have more leverage to get her to pay you back. Though if your parents dote on your sister and try to tell you not to call the cops, even if they offer to pay you off, I'd personally call the cops anyways. But if rely living under your parents roof then I'd maybe just accept their money and ask for a door that can lock on the outside (with a key) for your room as an ultimatum to not call the cops. money doesn't grow on trees and you don't deserve to be stolen from. you earned that money. I'd also want my expensive possessions safe from a thief as well just in case so I'd really look into a change to your room door. Also, your sister sounds like a total bitch. and an entitled one that. or else she would have paid you back. you deserve better than that, OP, and I hope this all evens out into more in your favor. good luck!
Your sister needs to quit saying such gibberish and pay you back so you can get your license.
Tell her you've lent her your $900 of driving lesson money! (If necessary, make her sign an IOU next time she wants money.) Don't get confrontational about it though; keep a good sense of humor.
