bike got stolen so dad sells car.....

well on top of me loosing my wallet last week, I rode my bike to a friends house yesterday and in the few hours I was there it got stolen off his front porch, it was literally inches from his front door, and someone just walked up and took off with it. When it happened I didnít really care that my bike was gone, I was more concerned about my fathers reaction especially since I just lost my wallet which had my drivers permit and social security card in it, anywhoo I told him when I got home and he flipped out, now he says heís canceling my insurance and selling my car, wtf? Itís not like I knew my bike was going to get stolen. Is it just me or does that seem a little harsh?

I assume its your dad thats been paying your insurance and car payments. If you can't keep a lockdown on your own posessions, I wouldn't want to be someone thats paying for your mistakes.

Learn from it.

QFT and also for what nick said. Get a job and show him you can be responsible, and if you have a job, how will you get there now?

edit: i would have driven to the friends house..but thats just lazy me

it shouldn't go unpunished. if you didn't lock up your bike the blame is yours. but selling the car? i would have just grounded you from it for awhile.

i didn't mean for that to sound like i was bashing his dad or anything, but my parents would probably threaten it and then not auctally sell it.

Sucks for you.

My bike got stolen this summer, but the kid that took it was riding down main street on it when I was coming home from a movie. Told my friend to stop the car and I just walked up to the kid and told him it was my bike. He said I was lying...all I had to do was tell him there was a dent in the back rim from coming up short on a jump (street/vert BMX bike), he checked, and just got off and started walking away. I also know it was my bike from the stickers I have on it. My parents just told me it was my fault that I didn't put it in the garage overnight (forgot it out in the yard), and said they would be more angry with me if they bought it, but I paid for it myself after 8th grade graduation a year and a half ago.

Great way to learn responsibility.

I WISH my bike would get stolen. Damn thing just takes up space and I never ride it.

I figure I can just sell it at a garage sale to some mexican for like 40 bucks though. *Not being racist, every single bike I've sold was sold to a mexican*

If he's making the payments he has every right to, but that does seem kind of harsh.

Reminds me of a story, my psych teacher has a friend whos daughter had a problem slamming doors. So he took the door off her room for a month. Then she slammed the bathroom door. Took that away too. Odd, but after that, there was no more door slamming. So, its a simple negative punishment situation. Your dad takes the car away=you be more resposible to avoid the said situation again.

well I talked to my dad about it and heís not selling the car, I am generally a responsible person and he knows that, all this just happened pretty quick, and the wallet, yeah I could see how thatís my fault, but the bike, was completely random, that kind of thing never happens in my neighborhood, but I guess I could have been a little more cautious. I had both the bike and wallet for over five years, but Iíve definitely learned from all this, and my dads not too mad about the whole thing anymore so I guess things will work out. thanks for the input.

yeah i know, but some issues with my name on my birth certificate not matching the name on my social security card came up just recently, and i needed it with me for awhile cuz my mothers maiden named just got added to my name so a lot of documents had to be dealt with/changed.

well its good news hes not going to sell it. it was probably just emotion that he acted from instead of logic. if you have been responsible in the past and he knew it, youd be fine, and you are.

Yeah, you should have written it down or something. (In reference to the SS Card).

Most people dont chain there cars up to a fence, however EVERY time I get out I make sure that all the doors are locked and my iPod and stereo faceplate are not in there. It isnt difficult to chain your bike up. It doesnt even necessarily need to be tied to anything. If you put the chain through one of the wheels, and then through part of the frame, then they will not be able to ride the bike away and most likely will not try to take it since it is a hassle to have to carry the bike.
