DAMN IT. This is really hard to get across in text but I could not be more pissed off. It is NOT POSSIBLE.
As most of you know I have put alot of time and money into my red 89. It running quality is probably in the top 10% of any 1989 vehicle. The car has never been serviced by a shop under my ownership. It has all been done and paid for by me. Now here is the issue. My mother'* name is on the title and registration because I would then have lower insurance. Trusting my own mother is probably the worst damn thing I've ever done. She is a TOTALLY SELFISH and INCONSIDERATE person. After I have put THOUSANDS into the 89 for parts and THOUSANDS of dollars of labor, not to mention the fact that I bought it. Now SHE is telling me that SHE owns the car and when it sells that SHE is keeping the money and I'm not getting a DIME.
Thats just ONE part of me being pissed. Next part.
She bought the 93 for me on a loan basis to get around interest rates and such, so I said cool. Once again, her name on the registration and title for insurance reasons. Since I've owned the car, tomorrow will be one month, I have been doing ALL the labor on the car. She has been paying for the parts because I am moving to florida and not taking the car with me. Can't afford to pay it off completely right now. Regardless of that, I consider it mine as ANYONE would consider their car theirs when they get a loan on it, but OHHH no, here we go again. Now I have finally been able to come up with enough money to go to the IL meet on Friday and OHHH, boy, here comes the selfish mother. NOOO, she can't POSSIBLY spare a few days of not having a car (no, she doesn't work) for me to go to a meet that I'll most likely, never be able to attend again. No...can't possibly. So now she said NO I can't take it, and IF I TRY, SHE'LL REPORT GRAND THEFT AUTO.
I...I...am at a loss for words. Everyone I know that knows the situation first hand, thinks it is horrible. I have never in my life met such a goddamn inconsiderate, selfish, HORRIBLE person. She has NO respect for anyone but herself.
She justifies this by saying that she raised me and paid for everything as a kid, and am I nuts or something to think that she is TRADING my hard work and money into a material possession to pay back her time and money towards raising me? I mean COME ON. Thats not only unfair, but isn't even logical! And she says, "well I put gas in the car when I use it." I'm like "Uhh, you wouldn't exactly HAVE a car if it wasn't for me, you'd have nothing to put gas INTO"
She doesn't work, she just sits here and is either writing, watching TV, reading or sleeping. And she won't let me work because ooh, then she wouldn't have a car! But then complains that I don't work, like I'm supposed to support HER.
This is all compounded by the fact that she is freaking out about me leaving because it really tells her, that GEE, without me, she actually has to *gasp* WORK. And because I'm leaving is making my life a LIVING HELL.
Thank GOD I'm leaving here soon.
