I was talking on the phone last night with my SIL. I am planning a trip to visit with her next month and taking my two kids (8 and 10). She has three kids (3, 5, and 6). So she reminded me that I would have to pick up a rental car at the airport - no problem. Then she asked if I could get an SUV as we are planning to take the kids camping. No problem but I mentioned that she had an SUV and we could probably put all the gear in that. Nope, she doesn't have it. Why? Because my BIL traded it in for a brand new Land Cruiser which only he is allowed to drive and gave her his 1997 Corolla!
I am pissed. She carts the kids everywhere, does all the household shopping and she has to drive an unreliable POS car. He drives two miles to the fire station, parks the car for three days during his shift, and then drives home. That's it! Yet he told her since he paid for it (she is a SAHM) he should get what he wants.
It really surprised me because DH has always made sure that the kids and I have had the safest, most reliable car in the family. How did these two boys come from the same family?
So, who in your family drives the safest vehicle?
