difficult child got "asked" to leave our auto insurance coverage by our insurance company for having too many tickets and accidents. He got his own coverage for his vehicle under a different company. Well, difficult child side swipped someone and no longer has a car. I said he could use our oldest car while he looks for another so he could work. Well, difficult child was backing out of our driveway which is uphill to get to the road. He wound up backing into a friend's car. difficult child & the friend decided to not go through the insurance because he knew I was afraid I'd be told to leave the insurance company since he drove our car. This was over a week ago. The friend got an estimate and the estimate was $100 less than the friend was selling the truck for. So, difficult child said he would buy the truck from him. The friend told my son he could buy the truck for $1000 more than he was originally asking. difficult child said no way and the friend was given a check made out to the repair shop that gave the estimate. Now the friend's father says he cannot accept a 3rd party check and the check has to be made out to the friend's father. I said no way. Then I said once the repair is done, we would go over on the day they were to pick it up and pay in cash then. The father called me and said oh we just got the estimate for the sake of getting one for you, a buddy of mine is going to fix it. I said, ok just get me the receipts and bills and we would write the check out for it. Now the father decides he wants to go through the insurance company so he can get the money and do whatever he wants with the money. I am livid. This father is a grownup difficult child! Now my husband is all upset because he is afraid of going through the insurance. Anyone have any input or advice please.
