Good2Go Auto Insurance presents: So Much Winning!
"I'm walking down the street with my two kids and bags of groceries- this is really hard, making my life very difficult. I've got a car, but I can't afford insurance. I had a choice- feed them, or buy insurance. They won."
Um, only in the most limited sense, lady.* First of all, unless you wanted an eventual visit from Child Protective Services, you really don't get to choose between feeding your kids and driving your car, sorry. If you thought I was going to give you plaudits for "choosing" your kids over your f--ng car, well, sorry, that's not going to happen.
If you wanted praise from me, you should have dumped that worthless car of yours and invested in a few transit passes. Stop pretending you can afford a car and get real. And get used to that mass transit option.
As for your kids....this is what your mom calls "winning," guys. Juggling car insurance and food. There's this thing called the genetic lottery, and you didn't win it. The heartbreaking thing here is that your mom isn't all that interested in getting her finances in order if she's just waiting for someone to hand her cut-rate, Just Barely Legal "insurance" that won't do one damn thing for you if you're hurt in an accident which is her fault (think that's a risk worth taking? Your mom does. Which is probably why she can't afford insurance in the first place.)
Yep, they "won." Kind of hard to tell when they are walking home from the grocery store with mom and then sitting in that studio apartment surrounded by Rent A Center appliances, but trust me, they "won." Mommy says so.
*and once again, it's a single black person with kids who can't afford insurance. So very progressive of you, Good2Go.
