I’m not generally one for public shaming as the go to punishment for today’s Facebook savvy kids. But I can’t even be mad at this mom from New South Wales who is looking to teach her daughter a capital “L” Lesson by ebaying off her swoon-worthy One Direction concert tickets.
The ebay listing for the four October 25th concert tickets has an eyebrow-raising “description,” to say the least:
You can thank my daughters self righteous and lippy attitude for their sale. See sweety? And you thought I was bluffing. I hope the scowl on your bitchy little friends faces when you tell them that your dad and i revoked the gift we were giving you all reminds you that your PARENTS are the ones that deserve love and respect more than anyone. And your silly little pack mentality of taking your parents for fools is one sadly mistaken. Anyhow. Your loss someone else’s gain who deserves them! THE TICKETS ARE SEATED IN ROW O section 57. REMEMBER AUCTION IS FOR ALL 4 TICKETS and will be sent registered post
But even after nailing the specifics, as well as a few tangential details, the glorious rant continues:
…OH YOUR FRIENDS THOUGHT THAT A FEW PRANKS CALLS WOULD PUT ME OFF SELLING THE GIFT WE BOUGHT FOR THEM for YOUR BIRTHDAY because YOU all LIED to us about sleep overs so you could hang like little trollops at an older guys HOUSE????? Pffft!! I find it HIGHLY amusing that you girls think you invented this stuff. Tricks like this on OUR parents is how HALF of you were conceived …..And why a lot of your friends DONT have an address to send that Fathers day card to!!!Â I’m not your friend. I’m your MOTHER. And I am here to give you the boundaries that YOU NEED to become a functional responsible adult. You may hate me now….. But I don’t care. Its my job to raise a responsible adult..not nuture bad habits in my teen age child
While resorting to terms like “little trollops” with kids — or anyone for that matter — means parental deductions in my book, I appreciate rounding out this whole parental rant with the raising “a functional responsible adult” bottom line. I’m just in awe of this mom’s albeit flawed willingness to step up to the parenthood plate.
