Oh, I asked my dad for $300 for a car tag when I bought my new car years ago. He said no which was fine. First he said he'd have to talk to my stepmother and he'd let me know. Next time I talked to him he also gave me a long lecture about buying things I couldn't afford and even told me to take the car back. I was sooo mad that I cried when I got off the phone. I vowed never to ask him for money again. My dad paid child support but he didn't pay anything for me to go to college. Yet he and my stepmother put my half brother through a private high school. He is 25, still lives with them and never finished college. So my dad making me feel bad about asking for the money really hurt me.
Congrats on your paycheck. God bless the child that's got his own!!!
