This is absolutely delightful. A mother in Wyoming was livid when her 16-year-old son was pulled over for drunk driving, and decided to do something about it. No, she didn't ground him or take away his video games, this woman got creative. She put a classified ad in her town's local paper that read:
VERY mad mother selling 16 yr. old son's 1993 Ford Ranger. Drove 3 mos. before son forgot to use his brain and got caught driving drunk. $3500 OBO. Call meanest mother in Wyoming.
She included her phone number, but I left that out because I know if you're anything like me, all you'd wanna do is text her all day telling her how awesome she is, and unless you're interested in purchasing this 20-year-old truck, I think it's best if we leave her alone.
Anyway! The "world's meanest mother" is getting a lot of support. A radio station posted her ad on its Facebook page and it's received over 61,000 likes, and comments keep pouring in showering the mom with praise.
I, too, would love to give this woman a virtual high-five. This is just brilliant. It's exactly what should happen to a 16-year-old who's caught not only drinking underage, but driving, as well. That sort of behavior is extremely dangerous, and drastic measures had to be taken to teach this young, impressionable kid a lesson.
As my mom reminded me over and over and over as a teen, driving is a privilege, not a right -- if you break the law, there should and will be consequences. This Wyoming mother isn't fooling around, either.
So, I would like to officially nominate her for Senate, then perhaps a presidential run in 2016. I think the nation could use the "world's meanest mom" right about now to whip us all into shape. I mean, I'd listen to her.
Do you agree with what this mom did?
