So basically my friend turns 16 tomorrow and I'm 15 stil. Anyway I legit feel like I'm 12 and my friend and I don't look near 16. I'm not a Pu$$y, but I don't want to have to turn into a legit adult at 16. I don't want to go do EVERYTHING by myslef, yeah I may drive to school sometime and maybe after I get comfortable do a little errands. But I'm not going to be one of thoes "cool kids" who thinks they are an adult at 16 and complete turns into this different personlike nojust no Anyway my friend turns 16 tomorrow and he's got s pretty early Birthday considering mine is in May. And honestly he's sucks, he tailgates, speeds, plays music loud which is distractinf. And overall just not a good driver in general, I'm pretty sure he only got in like 30 hours out of the 60 and I do NOT want to get in s car with him becuase he will kill me. I'm terrified becuase after the DMV he's coming to pick me up and I Don't want to go. He will kill me and he's going to be terrified to be driving by himself and Jesus, like HELP. What do I do I can't say no he will get pissed!
I know what you're looking for. You're looking for a magical way out of this mess. Because if you get in the car with this moron driving, you'll be a dead man. But if you say no, you'll be branded a wussy. Not going to lie to you, you're in a bad spot.
But there ain't no magical way out, bud. You can ask everyone and look everywhere, but you'll never find it.
You mentioned adultery… sorry, adulthood… in your question a few times, and how you're not in a big hurry to get there too quickly. But this is one of those things where adulthood comes for you whether you want it or not. Get used to it, by the way, because it's going to happen a lot. You're going to face situations where you only have two or three options, and none of them are very good, but you have to pick one of them and you don't have a lot of time to decide.
Childhood was easier, because most of the decisions are made for you and in the playground you had the option of declaring a do-over. That's the difference between boyhood and adultery, because the do-over option disappears.
Welcome to manhood pal. Now you know why nobody ever said it would be easy.
Don't worry until it does happen. No guarantee he will pass the test and get a license. Even if he does in many states where is an age restriction of passengers for the first 6 months, but that's really beside the point.
If he shows up and has the license and wants you to go, all you need to say is "No thanks." That all that is needed.
If he pushes for a reason, ignore it, you don't need it, the answer is no thanks–period.
Better to lose a friend than wind up hurt or dead.
Where I live, that wouldn't be legal due to graduated licensing laws. We had an accident in my town a while back where 3 teens in a car made a bad left turn in front of a tanker truck. Real tragic. They were violating the graduated license law.
You have a long life ahead of you and many decisions to make. If you make them to please others at the expense of your safety, your future might not be so long after all. Like it or not, your adulthood starts tomorrow. That's when your decisions may have life or death consequences. Personally, I get in a vehicle only when I have absolute confidence in both the driver and the condition of the machine. Otherwise, I stay home or walk.
Listen to your instincts. Don't get in the car!
If he was a real friend he would care about your safety when he is driving.
your friend is a moron and violator of at least one law !!! it's not legal for a 16 Y.O to drive a vehicle w/o an adult -over the age of 21 or 25 depending on where you live – being in the passenger seat !! you would be just as dumb to ride along with him
Say NO. You have to learn how to. Tell him you value your life and you don't want it wasted by a car accident. If he gets pissed, find a new friend, no friend would be inconsiderate of another's safety.
Just tell him to drive like a normal person
If you feel that way, don't get in the car with him. Did you really have to come on here to ask this?
