Since it is prom season and my niece wants a stretched Hummer and five-hundred dollar dress I figured I'd ask this question of the round-table. Do you think kids parents should foot the bill for stretch limo's and rooms(supoosedly for watching movies and saying good-bye's[:D]) at the Beverly Hilton? I took my date in a nicely washed and waxed Datsun pick-up.[:D] Had lots of fun, too. Couldn't afford a limo and my parents wouldn't foot the bill for a dime of it. I think kids nowadays just expect too much out of parents.

My cousin, the one who wore Jordache jeans and feathered his hair, let me borrow his Mercedes 400 series convertible. I thought that I was the shit!

Me and my friends rented a mini school bus for the prom, the ones for kids with disabilities with the chair lift. Then stayed over a friends beach house. Paid for it all myself.

Unfortunately, I went to 5 of them during my time in HS. The last one ([b]my[/b] Senior Prom), my grandmother rented a limo for me, and footed the bill for the tux as well. I wound up "surprising" a friend of mine, and took he and his date, with my date and myself. It was a great time. As far as the room goes...Well, I'm a bit old fashioned about that, I wouldn't pay for that if I were a parent. That's trouble incarnate. Besides, my friend had a house down in Brant Beach, on LBI, on the Jersey shore. The next few days were [b]good[/b].

I gotta ask, as these things are NOT cheap, who paid for that truck?
Link Posted: 5/27/2003 8:13:16 AM EDT
84 Toyota tercel I had to pay for all my things. Parents taught me the value of the dollar the hard way. However, the Toyota was a hatch back with a fold down rear seat. I had the fore sight to pack a couple of blankets, and did some scouting for desolate back country roads.[;D] [sex]

I went to two proms, mine and hers in 86. I had waited to get my lisence til I could buy my own car, so 3 weeks before prom I bought a 76 Buick LeSabre Custom. That car had a front seat that was just as big as the back seat. Woooooo.

In all 4 years I never attended a sports event, dance or anything else. Even though they kept saying they weren't going weeks before, the day after the senior prom my "friends" were talking about what a great time they had. After that, I shut down all contact with them and I refused to recognize their right to exist.
