So, I get a text this morning that difficult child's truck is in the impound. He lost the keys 2 weeks ago, this coming Saturday. Evidently did NOTHING about getting a new key made, and now it's been towed. It had been sitting at a gas station, where it was originally parked before he took off with one of his friends to go to a rodeo, and lost his keys. He said the manager told him it would be ok sitting there in the parking lot. Sure....for a couple of days. WHERE IS HIS BRAIN? You can't just leave your vehicle sitting on private property for however long you like. My question is: Should I pay to get a key made and pay to get it out of the impound, and then park it at my house and take away his privileges to drive it? OR, let the impound auction it off, and let him toss it up to a lesson learned (hopefully, ha). As far as value, it has very little. It has over 200,000 miles and has more dents and dings than you can count. He's treated it like ****...just as he has everything else in his life. That boy literally amazes me. I go from worrying and being sad....to being irked and sitting in disbelief. ....and, again, to think he's got a child on the way. Makes me nauseous.
