Jaguar over beamer? Must be a residual colonial thing.

No wonder they say there is a moron born every minute...
Could have traded that car in for whatever he wanted, but I guess when you a spoiled little s^*t who is used to getting his way...this was the way to display his dissatisfaction so the next time he gets what he wants.

Couldn't agree more with Griz, there is a simple solution... a really good ass-whooping so he can't sit on it for a few days... I bet you anything it will never happen again.

A little witch my baby girl played basketball in school with thought she "deserved" a Grand Cherokee.....not just a Cherokee plain.....so in her temper tantrum, she backed out of their garage....without opening the garage door.....and her grandmother rushed to buy her a new GC with a built in door opener that would not fail, you know.

Those kids probably have been getting nice, new everything. The car is just the latest purchase.

If the parents just got him the Jag he wanted we wouldn’t even be talking about this. Get your s**t together mom and dad.

Not always.....

Every situation is different. My kids all got new vehicles after driving family stuff to get the bumps out of the way, and I don't see any negative consequences with how I did it.

But the vehicles I bought were not loaded expensive toys.

As parents, some of us do take the idea of trying to make things good for the kids.....and I always think about that before I write a check. My little girl is the official painter on our spec homes we are building. She is on her 3rd for the summer, and has earned enough to pay for her junior year in college...and she hasn't let me down. She is a worker.

My kids got new vehicles as well. My daughter was in a special program that was only offered in a handful of high schools. International Bachelorette. She needed to drive there.

They turned out just fine.

Re: Spoiled Snowflakes All Over The World...


Everyone's got different philosophies when it comes to this... in our case, we're believers in our kids taking ownership in their decisions/purchases, so we told them all, that we would match whatever they saved for their first vehicle... what level of car they purchased was up to them...

But regarding this spoiled kid... it's more to do with the environment you're brought up in... if he's been catered to his whole life, it's not surprising that he would continue to expect that...
