Meanest Mom on the Planet

An Iowa mom put an ad in the paper selling her son's car after she found booze in it. She labelled herself the "meanest mom on the planet" in the article, but has gotten tons of positive feedback from the ad for enforcing the no booze in the car rule on her son. What a great story!

The ad reads: "OLDS 1999 Intrigue. Totally uncool parents who obviously don't love teenage son, selling his car. Only driven for three weeks before snoopy mom who needs to get a life found booze under front seat. $3,700/offer. Call meanest mom on the planet."

I was mean, miserable, and nasty to a young man who had just lost his learner's permit, due to marijuana use and possession: I secretly removed the license plates (tags) from his new pickup truck, and hid them.

They 're-appeared' mysteriously, when he stopped using drugs and was able to get a new license.

Sometimes ya gotta do, what ya gotta do!

Good for you! I totally agree - you have to mean at times if you love them.
