My First Car

My sister got her first car when she finished her 1st degree in college. She was around 21 years old then. I got my first car at the age of 25 years old! And it wasn’t easy at all; my parents only gave in after endless prodding and guilt tripping from me.

When they finally agreed to buy me a car, I decided that anything will do. I wasn't really involved that much in the buying process. They chose the brand, type, and model. However, they did confirm with me if I like it or not. They also asked my choice of color. That was the extent of my car buying experience. I consciously didn't try and object to anything they decided so as not to change their good spending mood. I was happy to have any car anyway.

I wonder though how it would be to buy a car on your own. The dodge dealerships in san diego promises to take your buying experience to the next level. I would love to experience that. I'll definitely buy my own car the next time. I bet you'll feel the same high like when you shop for expensive gifts for yourself.

Just to make things clear, I'm not really particular about what age my sister and I got our first cars; I just used that to my advantage. And the real reason for the delay was because I went to Japan to work right after graduation and was out of the country the whole time. (^O-)v I'm really spoilt to the max, I know, but I'm not proud of it. I am, however, very thankful that I have parents who can provide me with such luxuries.

    aw, you mean getting to choose the color? hahaha no big deal really. hihihi If I chose black, I don't think they'd agree anyway. hehehe (not so safe to drive a dark colored vehicle on the poorly lit streets of the phils.) ^^
