Granted, Dad did help with adding his credit to the loan for my Jeep, but he didn't give me any money to buy that car. That was in the summer of '99. They didn't buy my little sister's cars either, just the first one (although she got a much nicer car than I did - until that girl ran a red light in a rain storm and plowed into her).
My ma helped my brother buy his first car. I don't remember what it was other than shiny and brand new. Then he realized there was no way his job at Target could keep up with the payments, so he had to trade it in for a used car, and has paid for his own ever since.
My s-mom pulled a whole lotta jerry jerk on me with cars. She offered to help me buy a car to learn on (had a driver's permit at the time) when I held down a job for over six months. It turns out she made this offer when I was just a few weeks short of my six month review with my boss. Once I pointed it out to her, she nearly refused to believe me, then turned around and asked where my driver's license was. I realized then there was no winning with her. A couple years later, she offered to buy me a truck since we needed one anyway. I finally found a used one that I really liked. No real bells and whistles to distract me with, though it had AC and a radio. Very comfortable gear shift, great mileage compared to most trucks, and I could afford the payments on the job I had at the time. S-mom didn't approve of it though because it was bench seating, which meant between her weight and my short legs and arms, I wouldn't have been able to drive her anywhere. She never made an offer since, and she controlled my dad's money, so I was SoL.

I feel like I got lucky. The bugs seemed a lot more interested in the guys than in me XD That's awesome you got to go, either way.

O.o No way. Screw that, I'm sticking with 'cancelled', I don't care what anyone says. 'Canceled' doesn't even look right >.<
Also, KtC, glad your toe is doing better! Sucks that not as much is getting done, but at least you can give it a chance to heal.
