If you want to teach your teenage daughter a lesson, why not deprive them the one thing they crave most? Proximity to the dulcet tones of One Direction.
A woman in Australia decided to go on eBay to sell four tickets to a One Direction show that were initially intended for her daughter because the girl, well…misbehaved might be a delicate way to put it.
Read the description for yourself to hear all the rage. You can practically see the steam coming out of the mother’s keyboard as she wrote this:
"THIS AUCTION IS FOR ALL 4 ONE DIRECTION TICKETS IN SYDNEY OCTOBER 25th. 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
…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!!! 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"
Clearly, this mother’s scheme won’t backfire. It’s not like instead of teaching her little girl a lesson, the girl will choose to hate her mother. No, not all. Teenagers NEVER act that way.
Of course, this could be fake and a way to drum up interest in the tickets. Still, we can’t imagine a harsher punishment for a teenage girl.
