Me, My Dad and a Garage.

Extracts from this document...


Me, My Dad and a Garage "Hey dad can I park inside the garage it's about to rain" "Well let me think about that for a second. Ok thought about it. NO!" This is my delema at the moment. This issue is pitting me at odds with my dad over the use the parking spot in the garage. This cozy little part of the house is currently being occupied by a rusty bucket of bolts, also known as my dads car. Let me begin by explaining the situtation. I own a 1991 Toyota MR2, well it is what used to be a MR2. For some reason I felt the need to spend tremendous time and effort into transforming the car into a "show car." Show cars are often placed in competitions or car shows where winners receive recognition from their peers and substantial cash prizes. After modifying the car that was once a MR2, I am now fully aware that this is the hobby of those that like to spend tremendous amounts of money on complete crap, but regardless it's a hobby that I enjoy. ...read more.


Dad however, does not agree with my ideas on theives or acts of God. My dad simply states that it is his garage and parks his bucket inside the haven that is our garage. In parking his car in the garage he overlooks many of my arguments about why I should be able to protect my investment and overlooks the fact that my car will cost much more to be repaired if something happens to it. Damage to the car means even more money out of my pocket to fix it, consequently other aspects of my life will probably be affected. On the other hand my dad has more dents and craters on his car than on the moon, he would not care if his car was damaged or much less notice or spend the money to fix any damage. All I ask is to simply have the previlage of protecing my car by keeping it in the garage. I would even settle by sharing the garage, or have some sort of schedule. "Let you park in the garage? Why? Its my garage? ...read more.


That's a price difference of $2480.05. I don't think he needs to insure those hub caps. Another objection my dad raises is that he is the first to come home and therefore should have access to the garage since nobody is parked in it. I am willing to understand this point but I also have told him that I can move his car out of the garage for him when I get home. I also am the only person in my house to clean and organize the the garage. If I did not keep the garage clean then we would not even be having this disagreement because a car would not be able to fit inside the garage. The last thing I want to do is have a disagreement with my dad over where cars are parked but all I want to do is protect what I have worked so hard to attain. A lot of hard work, energy and money has gone into something that I really like and I would not like to see anything unfortunate happen to my investment. All I ask is for him to listen to my argument and possibly work out a resolution to this problem ...read more.
