Yeah, Spieluhr, I hate that damn Sweet 16 show. Those kids disgust me. A bunch of whiny fuckin' babies, who get everything they want. Rollin' into a Benz dealership, and picking out an SLK55. What the fuck are you gonna do with that car!?!? You're 16, and have no idea how to properly drive a machine like that. They could learn a few things from Lindsay Lohan, on driving performance vehicles...or should I say, how NOT to. My family did all right. Mom and pops divorced when I was 2, then mom met another guy. He had a kid from a previous marriage, so the 4 of us lived in a 2 bedroom apt. Mom got pregnant, so we moved into a decent house. Fridays, we could either: a.) Go out to eat, and rent movies for the night. Or b.) Eat at home, and go see a movie at the theater. Beyond that, we didn't get anything except what we needed. (i.e. clothes for school, food, etc.) My dad bought me my first car: A 1984 Honda Accord, 4-door, for $1500. Beyond that, it was up to me. I do okay for myself, working IT for a real estate co. for around 30k/yr. I'm new to the field, since I joined the Army right after high school. No certs yet, but I'm going to be getting into the security sector real soon. Holy Jesus, this is a long post.
