Full Version: $1,000 Check from My Parents
Dieselstation Car Forums > Parking Lot > Off Topic
Black RSX
When I checked my mail tonight after getting home late... there was a card from my parents... in it was a check for $1,000.

It was X-mas/Holiday card... Wishing me a Happy Holiday Season.

I have NO idea why they would send me this check.. I did not ask for money... it is really not even that close to Christmas.... huh.gif

I don't think I can accept that much money. I am thinking of stopping by my parents place on my way home from work tomorrow to give the check back... It is too much.. I just don't know what I should do...

maybe their liquidating their assets and moving to a remote island to spend their days harvesting coconuts and surf fishing to support themselves.

That would be the smart thing to do... if I decide to keep it...

OMG!!! That totally might be why they sent it to me!!! They saw the pictures I took in Port Washington and they really liked them...

I told them that I was happy with them.. but wished I had a better camera to take pictures with...


What I need to do is start selling all this crap I have laying around that I don't use... like 2 sets of tires that are only slightly used for my RSX... (Old summer tires)...

I need to get an Ebay account started and build enough cash to get a new DSLR!!! Good call aznkid!!!

Maybe it's a sign from your parents that they're cutting you loose and this is the last money you'll ever see from them !

Well, I am already loose... Been that way for 2 years ... I am 26... I have a crappy apartment... (with a garage)...

Steady job for 6 years....

Still very strange... I am going to have to talk to my mom tomorrow... find out why...

i would save it, and not touch it. Wait a few years, you might really need it if an emergency comes up, and if you dont.. then buy them something nice with it (but not too expensive, so you can have some left over to play with)

sometimes its hard to accept things like that, its kind of akward, but you know their intention behind it is to make you happy. I would feel better, happier about it, if i saved it.

You and Diesel are right...

I need to use a lot of self control and not spend that money... put it in my Mutual Fund... let it gain a little interest...


Mmmmm so many things I want to get though..

New Digital Camera
New Bed... (I only have a twin, meaning I always stay over at the girls place.. who ever she might be at the time.)
Hondata for my RSX!!!! eek.gif

I would save it. I've been pretty good about saving money, and time and time again, I've needed an extra $500 here and there for repairs, emergencies, etc...

At least put $500 away. ING Savings is at 2.20% right now. Its not great, but for a simple savings account, its the best you will find. And, if you have me refer you, you get an extra $25 referal bonus. wink.gif
