My youngest brother is turning 24. He works part time at Target. He went through barber's school and currently has his diploma, but has decided not to use it. He tried to get a barber's job twice, then decided it wasn't for him.
Last summer, he bought an old Mustang through Craig's list. When they delivered the car, they had him sign an illegal title ( the current title holder wasn't selling the car, it was a second party and they didn't have the owner's permission ). Then, the parked the car on the driveway and had to put paint cans behind the wheels to keep it from rolling away. My brother was going to "fix up the car himself". This is a guy that doesn't know where to check the oil in a car....Oh, P.S. He gave them 1500$ for the car. Since he had no car before this, my parents had had to drive him to work every day. When they found out he spent ALL the money he had in savings on a car that would never run, they were so pissed! The hunk of junk could never legally be his even, and my dad told him to get it off his driveway. My brother paid a junk place to come pick it up.
My parents are sick of driving around a 24 year old, and it has taken him this whole year to save for another car. I just found out he is looking for another Mustang that he can "fix". My parents just got rid of my dad's truck, so they are down to one car, and between driving to my mom's job, my dad's job, my little sister's job ( she is 18 and saving for her own car), and my brother's job, they are using a lot of gas and puting a lot of wear on their car. I think if he buys another junk that doesn't run, my parents are going to completely lose it with him.
What would you say? My parents asked us to talk to him, because their talk obviously didn't make much of a dent after the last purchase. I don't know how to say it so he will listen....
