With Spring Comes Teen Drivers And Working Car Doors

OK~ The rear passenger doors to the 1993 Taurus that our 16 year old son is driving have not worked in two-three years. This morning as he headed out the driveway to school, I noticed that the left rear passenger door was open. What? These doors don't work, right?

 I went out to tell Garrett that the left passenger door needed to be closed. I casually opened it all the way and closed it. He says, "What? I didn't think those doors worked?" I thought to myself, "Yeah, just two months ago we tried and tried to open them!" So.....why would they decide to open now? Quite frankly, this Mom would have preferred they stay non-useable!

The perfect first car for a 16 year old is one that does NOT have functioning rear passenger doors- I do get it that teens will crawl over seats and find a way into the back seat if they need to be there. So now I wonder- is this a good thing or a bad thing?  Must be the early Iowa spring that sprung 'em open! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?

  1. Is it possible that there was a kid safety lock that got hit? I've been trapped in the backseat a few times when riding in a seat that usually transports toddlers. That's the only easy explanation that I can think of!


I always love feedback on my blog!
