Hey mom. Ive been thinking alot about it, but im stuck. I want a car, but college is coming up. What do I do?
Well hon, that's up to you. just keep in mind on how important college is for your future.
yes, but just think about how much money it would save us. I wouldnt have to keep wasting your gas. I could just go to college in a few years.
He only see's the good side of getting a car, but not the big risk.
Like I said, its your choice, however, I thinks its the wrong one.
Mom, im just really worried. What if I do get the car and it ends up taking all my college savings? I worked hard on that money..
He's beginning to feel worried because he knows there is a chance not to go to college just because he wants a car
Thats what i'm thinking too. In my opinion, i think you should go ahead and save for college. If you using the gas in my car gets you into college then i dont mind.
Yeah you're right.. what if I just save up long enough for both? It will kill two birds with one stone.
He is think of alternatives to be able to get a car a go to college
It will take a while to gain up that much money but if that means you're going to college then go for it.
Then thats what ill do. Ill continue working at the sports store and try and find another job while im at it. In the meantime ill be saving up my money and soon enough ill not only be in college, but ill be pulling up in a nice car to call my own.
He makes up his mind and decides on saving up for both.
I think youre making the right decision, Hon. Good way to think it over.
I can't believe i actually did it! I got a car and started college today!
two years later
I know! I think you made the right choice, son. Now drive safe;)
