'Meanest Mom on the Planet' sells son's car

Filed under: Teens, Development/Milestones: Babies

Jane Hambleton had just two rules for her teenage son when she bought him a car: no alcohol and keep it locked.

When after only a few weeks, she found found a bottle under the seat, she didn't get mad. She put an ad in the classifieds.

OLDS 1999 Intrigue. Totally uncool parents who obviously don't love teenage son, selling his car. Only driven for three weeks before snoopy mom who needs to get a life found booze under front seat. $3,700/offer. Call meanest mom on the planet.

"It's overwhelming the number of calls I've gotten from people saying 'Thank you, it's nice to see a responsible parent.'" Hambleton said. "So far there are no calls from anyone saying, 'You're really strict. You're real overboard, lady."

I am impressed by this woman's courage. It's easy to say you'd do the exact same thing, but would be much hard to actually go through with.

Rock on with your bad self, mean Mom!
