    Mom sells teen's car after finding alcohol

    DES MOINES, Iowa - Jane Hambleton has dubbed herself the "meanest mom on the planet."

    After finding alcohol in her son's car, she decided to sell the car and share her 19-year-old's misdeed with everyone by placing an ad in the local newspaper.

    WOW. I wish more parents were like this. She, the parent, made a good decision. I don't think she is the meanest, just the bravest.

    Good for Mom! The only person who feels she was wrong was her son. She had two rules: no alcohol in the car and keep it locked. He broke the rule and lost the car. She may have saved his life. I hope he realizes one day what a smart decision she made.

    I loved her ad:

    "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."

    from link:
    The only critic is her son, who Hambleton says is "very, very unhappy" with the ad and claims the alcohol was left by a passenger.

    I hope this kid appreciates the fact that his Mom found the booze and not a police officer during a traffic stop.....or worse. That old "it was left in the car by someone else" thing doesn't fly with most cops, ignorance of the law is no excuse. Mom did an awesome thing for him and is teaching him a very valuable lessen, and he doesn't even know it yet.
