Our neighbor had a Mercedes 560SL roadster with a license plate frame that read, "My other car is a Mercedes." It was true. They also had a 420 SEL sedan. WTF.

This sounds very complex and certainly no one here would be able to tell you if what your parents did was okay or not. It's hard to tell if they had good intentions and they ended up taking things too far or if they were getting some sexual enjoyment
