A Dimitri Production
Sixteen year old Jeff is the baby of the original family, his adopted brother Ryan is still 15 for rather a few months. Because of this, he is a bit indulged more than his brothers but by no means a spoiled kid. Also, when he is spanked he is a screamer; one would think he was genuinely being killed by the sound of things. This really bothers you and again, have been somewhat easier on him than you were with his older brothers.
In your household you allow the kids to apply for their learner's permit sufficiently ahead of time that they can take their learner's test on their birthday as long as it's a day the DMV was open. Alas, Jeff's birthday fell on a Saturday so he had to wait until Monday to test out for his Learner's Permit. He was a little whiny about that but we all survived his sweet 16 without incident
Fast forward the requisite 90 days and Jeff is sitting behind the wheel of the Jeep that replaced the Envoy Darren quashed courtesy of Jeff's antics a couple of years ago. Because no one in your family is really willing to let him live that down, he makes a point of being a really good and careful driver.
That is until now:
"Dad, I got a ticket for speeding" said he.
You take the form from his trembling hand to discover that your 'good and careful driver' was cited for doing 87 mph in a 55 zone. In your Commonwealth the price for this little run is $270.00 and 3 points on the license and, being a new driver (less than 4 months), the insurance rate is already appalling.
When asked how he let this happen, you were told, "I really wasn't paying attention. I had music playing and I was talking to Ben and the next thing I know is I hear a siren behind be and I pull over. I mean, it wasn't like I MEANT to speed or anything; it's no big deal you know I didn't hurt anyone!"
Is losing the keys for a while sufficient for Jeff or is this a ticket to a tanning?
