Transcript of Ethos, Pathos, Logos

The source's credibility
"Mom you know how your best friend Jami just got her daughter a car?"
"Yeah what about her?"
"Well she has been noticeably less stressed and we barely see Jami herself in the grocery store only Lauren (her daughter)"
"That is true... she has had a lot more free time she is constantly texting me about meeting for lunch."

The emotional appeal
"Mom I do know it's hard to get me a car because it is a sign of me growing up, but can you remember getting your first car? how exciting it was and how you would do just about anything for it?"
*FLASHBACK* "I remember that car... 1989 red Camara. I payed for half that car and was constantly a chauffeur to my friend's but we did have some great times"

The logic used to support a claim
"I do want you to have a car but honey it's very expensive."
" I've figured all this out mom. I found a used car in reat condition it hasn't had any accidents, only 1 owner, and gets 24 miles to the city gallon. It's 10,490 and I have saved up $5,365 so I can pay for half."
"Okay that covers the upfront cost but what about gas?"
" Well, based on ncbi.nlm.nih.gov the average miles a week for a teen is 150, and with gas prices now that would cost about 18 dollars weekly. With my new job at Kilwins in town I make $135 so I will pay for all my gas."
