I heard our child complaining because she had to drive the car without the air conditioner. My car air conditioner had broken in the middle of summer, & I haven’t fixed it yet. It was an old car that the two of us used only if the two of us needed a spare, & the air conditioner was just not a priority. Not too long ago, the wife took the car out for groceries. She took the new car, & she left the old one home in case I needed to go somewhere. I would have used the truck as her new car & our truck both have air conditioners. My child wanted to go to her friends house, & I gave her the keys to the car. She started to whine because it didn’t have air conditioner. She said she wanted the truck. She knows I don’t let anyone except our wife drive that truck. I told her if she wanted to go anyplace, she had to use the car. You would have thought she was a six year fighting over a toy in the store. She threw a temper tantrum. She even said that I should have made her take the new car, & then I could have used the old one. When she got done acting like a child, I asked for the keys back, & I said walking was free. I knew she thought it was horrible not to have air conditioner, although I certainly didn’t care. Did she truly think I make my wife leave her car home for her because it had air conditioner? I didn’t like her attitude, & I told her to walk. She started running down the driveway, however she was back more than 2 hours later.
