When he missed his curfew something he rarely did she became concerned and sent him a text message the reply she received was not typical. In fact -- he told us that her -- text message to her need her weary that he was intoxicated. She asked if he needed -- right now be home in an hour. Ninety minutes later no side of the -- Like any. You -- that was caught up in the night's revelry and ended up getting arrested for driving under the influence. The Wyoming state police caught the boy's mother to coming out and it was on the right on that she decided to sell the truck to teachers on eleven -- RX and didn't want to sell the track.

If you mother did buy -- Carly and by the card she purchased the car out of Alomar made him walk home. And that's what she should've done that she gave it right on she was concerned she behavior like the parent. And now much gone home she said okay. I'd buy into trapped in a conditions. That required you to behave appropriately. So that you could keep the truck. And you got current. He'll lose the track and act like parent. 8774694322. Because her ex husband continues to argue with her saying that she should. Had given her sign a second chance. -- key to serve a second chance that he's basically a good kid you had a bad night in she shouldn't have sold the track a public -- -- humiliated him like that. While I'm high -- -- what about you 87746943. To do. That's 87746943220. Any idea. That she started the ads like this very mad mother selling sixteen year old's 1993 Ford Ranger.

It goes until her out. -- let me ask you do you think that you weren't easy -- kids because you want to be their friend. Well not at all I was eating like it's because their father. Was rotten. I'm Molly I'm -- he only credit side and I don't mean that it was that you physically and -- need it well by some ways but he always made clear -- -- how disappointed -- like them. Because they didn't do what you want them to jail. So you like it was a good cop bad cop in that area. Yeah and then normally the bad cop you know I had a pretty. Straight and narrow kind of person myself but what he overloaded. I had cheated give them some greatly. And I know even when I was doing that. I didn't like get. By. It would and should talk on the -- up to our top parents so well we're definitely. But Rosemary you know thank you so much fair share -- that -- us and thanks for the call.
