Default I sure raised some dumb A* daughters

aka What a nice police man.

45 in a 30
burned out headlight
no proof of insurance (req'd)

Two fix it tickets, and no speeding ticket.

Been telling her for months now, she's going to get tagged for her incessant speeding. Especially around here, they have units set up just for traffic "control".

She got her new proof of insurance, and left it on the counter... didn't think it was important to put it in the car, because she had the prior one in there... which is from a different company and even listed her old address.

she still had one working headlight, didn't think it mattered.

{sigh}

She has yet to ask me to fix her headlight.

And she's smarter then the other one.

"I sure raised some dumb A* daughters"

Admission of guilt? If it's your fault, then it's your responsibility for paying those tickets! And if your paying for their mistakes, then your not done raising, get back to work.

Partdeux, it's all part of a process called, "growing up". What lessons I refused to embrace from my parents and others, life has thumped me on. I am sure it is much the same with your daughters. Question is, how much tolerance to this thumping will they have before things start clicking.

Take her to the auto parts store.
Get the bulb
Take her home
Walk her thru HER installing the headlight.


Oldest daughter will be 51 this month. On her first car, she could fix a flat, change the oil, pull the radiator to go to the shop, change spark plugs, etc. Involved Dad sitting to one side, talking her through it, lending muscle to get a stubborn lug nut started, ect.

Officer Friendly will teach her the cost of speeding if she cannot raise her right foot. Let her know what the total cost is for a 15 mph ticket, and effect on insurance rates.

I'm having car trouble, and it sounds like oldest daughter knows more than I do. Send her over.

Some kids just have to learn the hard way. It's called "experience" which is something a person gains, usually after doing something wrong. I think we all have gained some of that kind of experience at one time or the other.

It used to be that girls were the cautious ones. Their insurance was cheaper than boys the same age. Having raised two daughters, two step daughters and a step son I can say girls today are some of the most scatterbrained, ZERO common sense, stubborn, entitled, airheads I have ever seen. Finding a well grounded female under 25 would be like finding gold. Come to think of it boys seem to be just as stupid these days. Humans may be physically maturing at a faster rate, but they are emoptionally maturing at a MUCH slower rate.

I am sooo glad I am way out of that age range and not chasing those skirts.

She sounds younger than 23. Wait till she turns 25 or so. Maturity will set in however belatedly. Lots of luck in the meantime.
