Jane Hambleton of Des Moines had two simple rules for her 19-year-old son regarding the car he acquired around Thanksgiving: keep it locked, and no booze allowed. She wasn't asking a lot, so when she found some hooch in the ride, she got angry. Mrs. Hambleton is apparently not someone you want to make angry, particularly if you're her son. After discovering the contraband, the following ad appeared in the paper:
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.

End result? Car sold, hard lesson learned, and Mrs. Hambleton is getting props for being the self-described "meanest mom on the planet." Her son is predictably unhappy, saying it wasn't his booze and that it was left behind by a passenger. Face it, man - you lost. Better your mom than the police. Adding insult to injury, she's keeping the ad in the paper another week since the response to it was so positive. Note to our very own John Neff: you just missed a golden opportunity to upgrade your Alero to the next rung on the ladder in Oldsmobile's lineup.
