Yeah, you weren't kidding and that's okay. I'll finish your statement. Must be nice to have a dad that is financially able and cares for you in a way to gift you a lot of money. A lot of people have fathers that are either financially able or cares for their son, but it's seldom both.

Quit bitching and enjoy the gift.
No no no. Both my sons and their friends are always popping off with "Must be nice" comment when something good comes someones way. It's both a compliment and meant to be somewhat flippant, in a joking kind of way. I will say that my boys bon't ask for money. If we offer, they either accept or decline. Their choice. Our thought is, we can help help them now, when they need it most, or we can hoard it, and leave it to them later, when they are much more finacially secure and don't need the help.

The snowflake generation has some serious problems.
Well to be fair, a true snowflake wouldn't be talking about looking forward to buying and paying off a Mustang GT on their own - or buying a house. They'd be complaining about their job as a substitute teacher after going $90K in debt on a degree in English Lit.

If you got the car at 19 and have made all the payments yourself until now, I would say it’s ok to feel good that you accomplished that. Did you put anything down when you got the car?

IMO, putting that much down on a car at that age, assuming you made the money, is an accomplishment in itself....

Just accept the money, pay the car off and plan to do something nice and thoughtful for your dad or both parents.

When I got laid the first time, I didn't feel a sense of accomplishment because it only lasted 10 seconds.
I think everyone can relate to this:cwl:

I don't feel that accomplished feeling i was expecting now that he paid it off for me...
Probably because you won't have any extra cash in the bank, as you have traded the car payment for a house payment; and you know it will be a while before you can buy another new car......
