ok so i think i said it before on here about my mother being a b*tch.

anyway, im driving to Minnesota for the holidays to spend it with my girlfriend and her family, and i was planning on driving my truck, which has two wheel drive (97 Dodge Dakota) but i realized its better to drive a four wheel drive vehicle. i ask my mom if i could use her dodge durango and she gave me a glare and told me "its my car" and after i explained about how it might be better to have 4 wheel drive and that i would let her use my truck, she yelled at me, pretty much telling me how i fail at life as usual.

now, i spent the last month and a half figuring out what my best options were to get there, if i should fly, drive or take a train.

it turns out its best for both me and my girlfriend for me to drive up, because im bringing my guitars (a custom acoustic i put together for her) and my electric guitar (i take it everywhere and i was freaking out when i was there before and couldnt play my guitar)
and a few other things that they wouldnt allow me to bring on a plane without baggage fees and putting it in baggage. (i dont want to risk breaking anything.)

plus this time of year planes are a pain in the a** (everyone traveling and such) and of course the prices get jacked up every other day.

so my dad told me he'd pay for a plane ticket (or a hotel room if i drove)
and i explained the situation about why im driving and he told me the same thing over and over again "ship the stuff out to minnesota" which would be more expensive and i dont wanna risk destroying or damaging either guitar (they have alot of personal value to me. anything else i wouldnt mind replacing)
when i said about the instruments having personal value he threw a fit screaming at me and punching the table we were sitting at telling me how i should "do whatever the f^uck i want" cause he doesnt care.

so now all of a sudden hes not paying for the hotel (i dont care, i just thought it would be a nice gesture considering he was going to buy me a car as a gift for being the first in my family to go to college, then all of a sudden he changed his mind like a ass.)


but anyway are these people cold or what?

should i just stay in minnesota when i get there and transfer schools? i was planning on checking out a few colleges if possible because i gotta transfer anyway to get my degree and its either drive 5 hours a day in Pennsylvania or drive less then a hour if im in minnesota.


tl;dr:
my family are being asses again and im just ranting about it and wondering the pits opinion on just staying in minnesota and only coming back for my stuff. (keep in mind that my gf's dad already told me he could get me a job and i could stay with them till i get a apartment if i moved there.


ALSO ANYONE IN THE STATES OF OHIO, WISCONSIN, INDIANA, ILLINOIS, AND MICHIGAN BORDER WHATS THE WEATHER BEEN LIKE? I FOLLOW IT ONLINE AND ON THE WEATHER CHANNEL BUT I FIGURED IT MIGHT BE BETTER TO ASK FOR A PERSONAL OPINION ON WHAT ITS LIKE.

So you were completely reasonable and rational about the whole thing and your parents just decided to freak out on you for no reason at all eh?

I call bullsh*t on that.Just drive your own vehicle and stop complaining.

So if you just drove your own truck this would have never happened. But for some reason, you felt it necessary to get mad because your mom won't let you drive her truck.

the weather is pretty dang cold here in duluth, its been ranging from ten below to ten above, depending on the day. there hasn't been too much snow this year, makes me sad
but anyway its not been too horrible, depends on personal taste...

It is your mom's car she can do what she wants with it. Also getting mad because your dad promised to buy a car for you, but then backed out is retarded, because cars are quite the expensive gifts nowadays with the insurances and such. All in all, I say you buck up and drive your truck and stop whining.

no i was willing to drive mine either way i just asked because most parents who give a sh*t would typically say "your driving in the winter that far? you should take a truck with four wheel drive thats better then two wheel" and figure out something that would make the trip safer not "just go i dont give a rats ass i dont want you taking my truck cause its mine"

and to justify my old man hes nicer of the two he would let me use his but the inspection needs to be renewed.

1. don't cap every word
2. it's not hard to understand
3. it's marginally better, but if there's ice, you're ****ed anyways.

Yeah, it's a dick move, but that's life.

I don't really understand why you needed to drive a 4x4 in the first place?
The plan was to drink until the pain over.

Maybe she was just in a bad mood and (just like us) didnt see why you'd need her car.

Nope. Not buying you a car doesn't make him an ass, ship your stuff they won't get damaged. I mean, what do you think is going to happen if you wreck your car?

If you were to transfer schools and want to go to college there I'm pretty sure you have to provide proof you've lived there for a year as well.

Clearly you're not used to driving in the north in the winter. Minnesota gets a fair amount of snow, but unless it's a miserable storm, the roads will be clear. Four wheel drive wouldn't help you all that much. My experience from many years of living in Michigan; I probably saw twice as many cars with four wheel drive in ditches as I did small cars. My hypothesis is that people in SUVs with 4 wheel drive feel invincible so they drive stupidly fast on the highway regardless of the weather. Those of us with small cars drive intelligently.

As my dad likes to say, "Their car might have 4 wheel drive, but all cars have 4 wheel brakes."

How old are you? You sound like you're about 14.
Drive your own car and stop whining. Why would you expect your mom to just give you her car to drive to Minnesota? Especially in the winter.
Sounds a bit selfish of you, imo.

It was nice today. About 5 degrees F. where I am. There is snow on the ground, but most people in Minnesota get around fine without a four wheel drive vehicle. It's icy, and you have to know what you're doing. But there really isn't anything I wouldn't drive up here right now, except maybe a motorcycle or similar.

I don't know where you live, but make sure you're antifreeze can handle low temperatures, and let your car warm up for a couple minutes before you drive it if it's below zero out. I'm assuming you're just going to stay in the cities? The roads there are usually alright, but the traffic sucks, and you have to know what sliding around on snow and ice is like.

take your truck. Just shove a snow shovel in the back seat. At least you're not driving a pontiac sunfire on the highway during winter..
