    Last month I told my grandaughter Jolene that if she could maintain her grade point avg above avg...compete in sports..pass her Drivers license test on the first try...get a job and buy a new battery for my Ford Mustang convertible and pay the insurance to add her to my policy...well I would give her the car...well she did all of the requirements...so with a tear in my eye I gave her the keys...My daughter... her mother... said I was spoiling her...what do you all think...was I wrong? :cof:

    I have my doubts about ever giving anyone a gift worth several hundred dollars, wives excepted, and them rarely.

    Also, I would have held out for no grade less than a B on the GPA.

    Well above average then- congratulations to her!

    I still maintain that a gift that expensive is extravagant.

    Archangel, you have done a wonderful thing, and I salute you for it. Kids should be able to know that, if they live up to certain standards, they will be rewarded.
    My family was never much for gift-giving. Birthdays were never honored with presents. Christmas was limited. The only dates that were really important were your 18th birthday and high school and college graduation.

    Archangel, if that is the further you have spoiled any of your grandkids, you are in the ultimate lower tier of the spoiling curve. Do you realize how anxious my really strict mom is to spoil her grandkids? :asshole:
