She does not have her own car, so she uses mine, we also live 30 miles to the next town.
A month ago she said she was going to town to buy a dress...I told her that was fine and pick up some milk. She got back well after midnight and no milk, no explanation! I banned her from taking my car outside our zipcode. Well she got a job and had come home waaayy...tooo late for my taste so i told her from now on the car is out past midnight I will report it stolen.
Today she is at work and wants to go to town to get some personal items.on her facebook though she said, " I hope everything goes as planned", and her friends commented back telling her they can't wait.
do I let her have the car to go to town? maybe put a time limit on it?
or should I not let her take the car?
maybe take her shopping?
How do I trust her? she gets quite arrogant when it comes to herself and her life.

Unfortunately, she is taking advantage of your generosity. Personally, I would drop her off at work and pick her up. 30 miles to town and back is a lot of gas. Make her contribute to the gas and maintenance fund each wee from her pay. Evidently, from F/B she does have friends. Do they drive? Can she catch a ride with them from time to time to give mom a break? She definitely will have a temper tantrum if you cut back but too bad. If you continue this way, you just enable her to use you.
