I Hate My Life!, Part 2
By Kathleen Redman
  

1     "It's just not fair, Dan! I don't want to go on vacation with them. The whole family thing . . . I'm just too old for that!" Mark was talking to his best friend while they shot hoops.
 
2     "Well, I don't know," Dan began. "It would be better than sitting around here all summer."
 
3     "That's just the problem," Mark continued. "I won't be sitting around. If I stay home, I have to get a job!"
 
4     "So, what's the problem?" his friend asked. "Don't you want to have some extra money? I thought you wanted to buy a car."
 
5     "Well, I do, but I thought Dad and Mom might give me a car for my birthday. It's in September, and then I could drive myself back and forth to school," Dan explained.
 
6     "Yeah, right," Dan said. "After you told them you hate being around them, you hate their vacation, and you hate your life. Do you really expect them to buy a car for you after that?"
 
7     Mark didn't answer his friend right away. He bounced the basketball while he thought.
 
8     "I guess I was pretty hard on them," he said finally.
