Yesterday, my parents and my brother went car shopping for a car FOR THE BOTH OF US. I couldn't go because I had plans. However, they assured me they were only looking, not buying. They also assured me that if one caught their eye (I told them that I prefer recent models to, let say, the early 2000's), they would call me to discuss it.

Dodgy

I got a call when I was at Walmart that essentially consisted of my dad saying "There is a 2001 BMW here that we are looking at. It's got Bluetooth (which I personally thought was strange for a 2001 car, but hey whatever). Anyways, they expected me to be home and to look at the ad, and I told them I wasn't. So I get pictures of the car, and it totally fucking disappoints me. I actually fucking hate it. I never liked BMWs, I think a lot of their models are shit. So I texted my brother and said "Any other cars interest you?" And he said "We got this one."

Okay, hold the fuck up. Who just buys a car the first day of car shopping when the other person is not there? Fucking idiots that's who. Worst thing is worst is that I, a person expected to drive this fucking piece of shit, was NOT included in the conversation that got this car sold. Literally no input on the matter. Now, I am wondering just how much I SPENT on a car I DON'T want. And my brother thinks I should be happy because it's got Bluetooth.

Another fucking classic example that my life, and any major decisions thereof ARE NOT MADE BY ME.

So now I am a not-so-proud owner of a silver 2001 BMW.

Methinks this is a first world problem.


Given that he is paying his own money for the car (as opposed to his parents buying it for him in which case I would call him an ungrateful little cunt) I think it's a fair expectation that the decision be made by both himself and his brother and not just his brother.

Secondly, why are you sharing a car, that's stupid.

Thirdly, should have got a motorbike.

Fourthly, BMW's are nice, whatcha complaining about bro?

See, everyone says that. Honestly, its not about the car so much as it was 'supposed' to be a decision both of us made, but only one of us made that both of us will pay for.

Many years ago my dad took me out to find a car that I would be paying for. My first car, I was a senior in HS with a job and needed transportation. He narrowed the search down to three. Two Chevy Malibus and a Dodge Dart. The Malibus were green (not my favorite color) but a little sportier looking than the white Dart that was a stripped down car with a prior life as an Orkin car. I said that either of the Malibus would be fine - of course, I got the Dart. My dilemma - pay for a car I didn't really want or keep walking or riding my bike. So, yeah, I drove a fucking Orkin car and learned that I would have to be able to buy what I wanted in order to get what I wanted.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Which again, isn't the issue. I have no problems driving a car I don't like. I mean, yeah, I hate BMWs, but a car is a car. It's the discussion aspect I am miffed about. I should have been included in the discussion of it instead of just merely an afterthought.

Refuse to pay for it.

See, I would, but then I don't get a car. I am willing to put up with it rather than not have a car.

Given the other stories about your brother, I don't see this going well.

I assume the car is a BMW 325i?

540i is what my dad said it was.

Not good gas mileage. Bad choice.

Well, glad it wasn't a choice I made.
