Default My son the lucky fool

My son walked away without a scratch, airbags deployed nicely. He hit a pole with it, said he was going 35 mph, but I seriously doubt that, the entire unibody floor is rippled. He fell asleep "passed out" at the wheel, there were no skid marks or nothing. The kid owes me a car, and I am holding his car, (74 maverick in disrepair) hostage.
I guess I do have another 3800 car, the blue Intrigue in the background, maybe I'll stick around, I am just pretty bummed. I just gave the towing place the title, it really wasn't worth the time it would have taken to part it out.

I'm glad to hear your son is ok, thats what'* important. I think you're doing the right thing by withholding his car too. Sending a little praise his way for wearing his seatbelt would be in order in my opinion.

Its really REALLY good that he wasnt hurt. The car can be replaced, I'm not sure he woulda came out so well if he had been in the 74 Maverick in the same circumstance.
