Pro-Active Mom

A Pro-Active Mom in Iowa sold her son's car, and placed this ad in the newspaper:
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."

Besides selling the car almost immediately, she has gotten lots of feedback from the ad, all of it positive.
"It's overwhelming the number of calls I've gotten from people saying 'Thank you, it's nice to see a responsible parent.' So far there are no calls from anyone saying, 'You're really strict. You're real overboard, lady.'"

What a mom!

Our rules are simple. Our roof, our food, our rules!

Life is good...and simple.
