He Said, She Said: New Car

Setting the scene: Tyler recently got his drivers license and Matt and I are in the process of looking for a car for him. But we disagree on the kind of car that we should buy for him. The following conversation took place during car negotiations.

He Said: I think he should get a $3000 car just like we did when we were 16.

She Said: I didn’t have a $3000 car. I had a $10,000 Honda Accord.

He Said: That’s insane.

She Said: I was a good driver. And my parents loved me. They didn’t want me to drive an unsafe car.

He Said: Are you saying my parents didn’t love me?

She Said: No. I’m just saying they had 3 kids so technically there was a spare one.

He Said: That’s savage. 

She Said: Just callin’ like I see it. I’m not putting him in an unsafe car. His school is too far away and he has to drive on the interstate.

He Said: So what? Like a $5000 car?

She Said: Get real. We’re buying him a car that Maia will be able to drive when she turns 16 so it has to be a good one.

He Said: Fine. But I don’t know how you think we’re going to pay for it.

She Said: Don’t worry, your life insurance will cover it if needed.

He Said: Awesome.

She Said: Always good to have a back up plan.
