A young woman was preparing to leave home for military boot camp; she was excited. She felt as though she was taking control of her life.

One night, her parents brought up the subject of her car. They wanted to know what would  happen to it while she was away.

She Offered to Loan It

The young woman had a younger sister, Alexandra, who was 16 and just about able to drive. The young woman suggested that Alexandra could use it for the three months she was away.

Everyone seemed happy with the arrangement, but the woman added, “I decided that when I came back from boot camp, I would take my car wherever I was stationed.”

The problem was that her parents had effectively given her car to her sister without her permission.

The car was in her name and had been a gift from her grandparents. She said, “I completely own the car, and it is not theirs to give away.”

The young woman and her sister ended up sharing the car, with Alexandra using it most of the time to get to school. The young woman was waiting for her ship-out date and didn’t really need to drive anywhere.

But because their parents had told Alexandra she could have the car, she didn’t think she had to let the young woman use it at all.

One day, the young woman had to go sign some papers at her recruiter’s house. She suggested that she drop her sister off at school and then go on her way.

Alexandra didn’t agree; she wanted to drive to school and leave the car there. She suggested that the woman take their mom to work, then go off and sign her papers in their parents’ car.

It Was In the Opposite Direction

The woman said, “I tried explaining that this was not the ideal situation since our mother’s job is 30 miles in the opposite direction, not including the 10 miles it takes to get to Alexandra’s from our house. In the end, I had to have my recruiter pick me up and take me back to his office.”

That night, the young woman got so angry that she demanded she be given all of her possessions (including the car) after boot camp so she could move out. She also said that if she caught Alexandra driving the car again, she’d call the police and report it stolen.

Was She Wrong?

Was the young woman wrong to threaten to call the cops on a teenager, or should her parents admit their mistake and rescind their offer?

One person said, “If the car is in your name, it’s yours. There is nothing that your parents or your sister can do about that.”

Another person said, “Pack up all your clothes and items in your car and take it to a trusted friend’s house and leave it locked, but do NOT tell your family where it is.”
