My mum dad are divorced to start off with and live apart. i live with my mum and her boyfriend.
anyways, before i was 16 i decided i wanted to get a 50cc moped to get around on and travel to/from my job (when i get one) i felt as if it would take the pressure off my mum and other family members to always give me lifts around and give me the bit of responsibility i think i deserve.
My dad said to me that he would pay for my Provisional, CBT, ped and insurance. and i mentioned it to my mum. Her immediate answer was "NO!" and then went on to say "i dont like bikes" nd stuff like that..... so instead of kicking off, i just said "okay fine"
i explained to my dad that my mum had said no and not given a logical explanation why, just that she didnt like bikes nd their dangerous nd stuff. and he said, and other people have said to me!! that she is being rather stubborn. although i see where she is coming from in some aspects. like she is worried that i might fall off and hurt myself or act like an idiot.
but she has known me long enough now to know that i am responsible and dont act like an idiot when it comes to stuff like this....ive witnessed bike crashes and know what happens.
anyways... about a week ago i finally finished filling out the paperwork for my provisional and sent it all off to the DVLA for approval and get my license sent through.
it came through this morning and i was happy :) and went out with my dad for a bit to get my haircut nd have some lunch.
When i got home, my mum confronted me about what i had in the post and i said it was college stuff because i didnt want her knowing about the provisional, i didnt know how she would react. then she said "show me the college stuff then" nd i said "fine it wasnt....." nd her reply was "iknow exactly what it was! so dont get your dad telling you to lie to me".......then i went downstairs about 15 mins later and she went on about me being a lier, a cheat and that my dad is "so say" trying to draw a line between me and my mum and thaa he never does anything for us, he never buys us anything.
when today he spent 100 quid on my brother because he wanted xbox360 games and he has just put me thru for my CBT? and payed for some other things today.... buuh its all about money with my mum -_-
anyways, she then began to blackmail me saying "if u go ahead ur gona fall out big time with this family! going behind our backs!" nd then started sulking....so i went back upstairs nd didnt say a word.
so what do i do? the ONLY person who has a problem with this is my mum! and she hasnt given be a logical explanation why. just HER "opinion".... she knows that i aint gona act an idiot and my dad has even said to me thaa even if i do, he will ram the bike so far up my ass ill be rolling around on the back wheel.... and he will prob do it knowing him :/
and if she doesnt trust me? why doesnt she just let me do it and prove to her that i can be responsible and grown up! because she is letting me go in the army in 2 months but she wont let me have a ped? i hate having to go behind her back! but for once im standing up for something i want whether she likes it or not, i know i can be responsible and i want her to realise that as well.
so what do u think i should do?
