    Prom transport..Sweet 16's

    My god, these Americans sure do have alot to answer for, what with Proms and 'Sweet 16' birthdays .

    Its Ashlie's prom at the end of June, and she wants something a bit out of the ordinary to get there in...a bloody Ferrari Limo!!

    She can go and take a running jump at £800 an hour .

    I did offer to drive her in my new mk2 cabby, but she was very quick to say 'not a chance'

    Put a deposit down on her dress yesterday, which was a bargain at £159 seeing as some of them were well over the £400 mark.

    She watches all the programmes on MTV (or whatever channel it is) about the lavish parties that these American (and Brit) kids have, and its hers in June as well..so I dread to think what she is expecting, because trust me, a meal at the local Harvester is all I can afford

    For those who haven't seen the Sweet 16 programmes, the Americans get given brand new Mercs atc (she would have to make do with a Nova lol).

    I can't believe just how spoilt these kids are...

    heh - that's half the problem (if not more) with society today. People expect things handed to them on a plate and while moan and whine if they don't get it. Much in the same way, parents (to a degree) now take the view point it's their 'job' to provide for these spoilt brats and ensure they live the life of luxury - " but I never had the life so I want to make sure they do". Setting them up for epic fail imo.

    I think the less you spoil and pamper your kids, the more grounded they will be later in life and more successful and LIFE they will become.

    I used to watch that programme, can't beleive how spoilt they were, the avergae party cost £400,000 and nearly every one of them threw a tantrum of some kind before the party, if not at it if something wasn't right.
    How about hiring a limo with a bunch of friends, will make it a lot cheaper.
    Got my astra GSI in arden blue mk3 I love it
