I just found out my 16-year-old daughter's mother bought her the car of her dreams... a Kia Soul.
I feel sick to my stomach.
My kid has no job. She's been looking (probably not enough in my opinion) and keeps hearing that they aren't hiring people less than 18 due to the unemployment problem among adults. Her mother's job is in jeopardy. Her grandmother is unemployed & her uncle is scared to death. Yet she had her heart set on a Korean car.
When her mother emailed me asking "Do you want to contribute to the car fund?" I had no clue they were on their way to buy... My reply was that I would contribute matching funds to whatever she saves toward purchasing an American car, if she kept her grades up.
Part of me hopes this POS spends a great deal of time in the shop.
