Cool beans, no problems here, I've just heard too much crap from jealous people and sorta went on a rant, SAWRY! I got a really funny story from you about jealous people:

Story!!!

I work for a family who owns the main produce company in this town... however, the husband works his butt off, sometimes in the summer starting at 6 AM and not getting home till 2AM and then starting up the next day. He works for everything he has, hasn't had a bit handed to him. They give tons of money to the church and charities and stuff, very nice people and they gave me a job training their horses. They let a friend of mine keep her horse their for FREE for about 2 months, and during that time, she brought her bf with her one time... and he was asking about all the nice equipment I was using, and I said that Kirby had bought it... he then followed with a jealous snear, "Rich bastard." I went off on him in about the same way I did here except it was worse... he then tried to tell me that they were rich bastards because they were given everything they had and that they use FARM tags on all their vehicles (farm tags don't cost) and aren't taxed enough, and a bunch of other BS, I then, dragged his *** outside and pointed to the wife's mercedes, no farm tag, the daughters Land Rover, no farm tag, the dad's TRUCK and EXPIDITION, no farm tags, he has ONE vehicle he uses with a farm tag and that is the FARM truck, lmao, this dude and I got into it real bad, then i told him to leave and to never come back, and i told my friend he was never allowed to be at the barn again... my employer is the nicest man ever, and he has invested and worked his butt off for his life, and that dude had it comin to him from me...


but anways, sorry again acer, i was just confused, i misundertood the thread, i don't think i'd call it me being jealous of others things... i sometimes wish i had those things, but i am not jealous of them... jealousy is a strong word use... so when u say ur jealous, its a STRONG feeling, not like just wishing you could be in their shoes or something... it actually means resenting someone who is more successful or has something you do not...
you went off on someone? NO WAY

Another thing for you all to remember is, ACER and I both live in one of the top 3 richest counties in the US. I have kids at my school that drive $100,000+ cars. Its fvcking crazy. I dont hate rich kids by any means(most people would even call me one), my parents gave me my car, but it was also only 12,000 not 100,000+.

only?? omg give me 12k !!!
Only as in mustang price. $12,000 for a 01 GT with 16k miles is VERY cheap.

what about the 100,000$+ cars?[>:] I WANNA KNOW BOUT DEM!
One of the best cars at my school (not the same as ACER) would be a Jaguar S Type R.

List Price: $62,400
Engine Type: 4.2 liter 32V V-8
Horsepower: 400 bhp@6100rpm
Torque: 408lb-ft@3500rpm
Top Speed: 155 (electronically controlled)
Acceleration 0-60: 5.3s

We had a hummer h1(list over $100,000) last year.

Those would be the top 2 cars in the parking lot.

Other cars at my school include M3s, an escalade on 24's, lexus ls430, and many many others over $30,000 others.

This was a good topic, good job.

I thought I would just share my situation since I think it applies here. Well i'm 18 years old and my parents bought me a 2004 gt vert, brand new, in May 2004. I drove a 1991 Subaru legacy from when I was 15 (permit) till when I got this car. My parents were VERY poor growing up, so poor that they didn't even have running water, had to get it from a well. Dirt poor. But they have worked unbelievably hard and have had great success coming from nothing to a very respectable income level. We're not wealthy by any means, but respectable. When this car was given to me I basically was told that it was given to me for
1) Being a great son to them, and never causing any major conflict with anything/anyone
2) Always helping out the family whenever i could
3) I have always had great grades my whole life (Almost always straight A's)
4) They wanted me to enjoy my youth, whereas they had a very bad childhood.

I will never stop appreciating my parents for working so hard and buying this car for me, they have my utmost respect. When people go off and say "i hate that rich spoiled fuggar, mommy and daddy bought him everything". Well yes my parents did buy me this car and will pay for insurance and what not. So what? I never talk smack to anyone EVER about my car. I will never put down anyone elses car, b/c I respect everyone for what they have. If they don't have a car, then so be it, they don't have a car. I never brag about having this car to anyone at school. But there are times where I have to defend myself. Occasionally people call me spoiled, and alot of the normal sterotypical comments. I never instigate anything, but this was not exactly handed to me. I have had good grades my whole life, and like I stated earlier there are other reasons for getting this car. By having this car, it actually motivates me to try even harder during school just so I can live up to the standards of having it. So when people call me spoiled, and a rich bitch, that just gets on my nerves. Don't talk smack if the person isn't doing anything directly to you.

I think it's nice that parents share with their kids and help them out. That's what my parents did for me and I turned out OK.

However, I don't think it's a good idea to hand young people anything.

It's just not a good life lesson and they won't learn the values and morals they will need later in life.

Working for it is another story.

buying your kid a new mercedes or 05 mustang isn't helping out. that's spoiling them rotten. my first car was a hand me down from my mom. sure, she was helping out. it was a 98 mustang v6. nothing special at all. then she gave me 1500 for a down payment on my 04 GT. the other 8500 i put down was mine. that's helping out.

i would have bought my stang by myself. mommy said "here's $1500 for a new car". who am i to argue with that? makes my payments slightly less. every little bit helps!

"help" depends on your perspective dude.

If the parents were multi-millionaires, the 100k isn't any different to them than my father buying me a 5k ride when I was 17.

My original statement that it isn't a good idea to hand anything to a kid stands
