My First Car
I worked a job in a town that was 30 minutes from where I lived with my folks and I had been using my parent's car to drive back and forth to work for a year. I had an opportunity to share an appartment with one of my coworkers so I needed a car of my own. My Dad took me to the dealership and helped me pick out a car--the only problem was that it was a stick and I had never driven one before. He wouldn't let me wimp out though! He said that I might as well start learning then and there so he made me drive it off the lot and all the way home! I was very glad that there were no hills that I had to stop on during that trip.
