SuperNinjaToad: dahmers love zombie: My kid tried something like that, I'd do the same goddamn thing.  I wouldn't have gotten all self-righteous in the description, but you can bet your bottom dollar that behavior like that would get the kid's ticket sold in a New York minute.  She'd also find out that her cell phone didn't work and that her Facebook password had been changed.

And Sprint Family Locator is a great, great tool.  Even if I only ended up ever using it to find lost/stolen phones.  The knowledge that I had it was enough to keep 'em where they were supposed to be.

hate to break it to ya pops but odds are your kid is smarter than you or at least more tech savvy.. probably has duplicate or clone FB accounts only her friends know about and her friends probably extra phone that she'll borrow and clone the SIM card etc,


Smarter? Doubtful. More tech savvy? Right. The tech savvyness of most teenagers is confined to pushing the "Send" button.

The tech they're using wasn't created by teenagers. It was created by adults in their 30s and 40s, mostly.

If those trollops can't see One Direction send them to my house to see Nude Erection. I think I would like to meet some trollops.

The only think I think went over the line was the comment about the "fatherless" girls.  The b*tch implied that single mothers are "trollops."

According to another thread from today we shouldn't spank our kids.  This one tells us we can't humiliate them.  What's left?  Should parents just start using yellow and red cards like they do in soccer?

I feel bad for any kid who has to live in an environment like that.
 
2013-09-20 02:07:27 PM  

Jill'sNipple: gonzoduke: The bidding is up to Au$16,300. Either the daughter and her friends are trolling the parents or thems some crazy O.D. fans

Classic revenge would be if the daughter bids it up, steals their debit card and uses it to make the transaction. If their paypal is linked to a credit card, that potentially could result in some hefty overdraft fees.


That could potentially go from humiliation to a homicide case if it really happens so probably not a good idea.
Parent's should just play dumb until the day of the concert. Then get all dressed up and when the daughter asked where they're going tell her they're going to the concert of course (and proceed with the explanation then) and that along the way they'll also be dropping her off at grandma's to help her with her yard work.
At the concert tell her shocked friends lil Suzy is doing yardwork there fore they are going in her place and proceed to embarrass the hell out of them for their shenanigans

coeyagi: uncleacid: How do I get tickets to the older guys house?

[cdn.hahajk.com image 752x500]


If hookers actually looked that good.... Still would pass, but at least I could understand the temptation.

It's pretty much trannies, faces of meth, and VD you can see/smell a mile away, which makes me wonder how they even get business.
 
2013-09-20 02:08:04 PM  
I was wondering about the high bidding on that myself, as it was up to $17,100 when I checked it out.  Couple of folks up here brought up it possibly being the kids.  Fair enough.

"Oh?  You and your friends don't have (assuming it goes there) $20,000?  That's fine.  We still have a shredder."

At which point, the tickets are confetti.  I have no idea what boy band tickets cost, but let's say total of $500-$800.  An expensive lesson, but kids are kids, parents are parents.  Friendliness is good, but you can't be the kid's friend at that age.

/Why, yes, I am a parent.
//Hoping I don't ever have to resort to that kind of tactic.
///Not really worried about it.
 
2013-09-20 02:08:08 PM  

Paper-Pusher: Ok- seriously, those are some expensive tickets.  I wonder how much profit the sale of the tickets is going to make the family.  The current value in USD is over $16k


You seem to be under the impression these are serious bids.  The listing makes it clear the kid's friends are always aware of mom's plan to sell off the tickets, so they're obviously just bidding up astronomically with no intention to pay, thus thwarting mom's effort to regain any money on the tickets.  No, mom's still not going to let the kid go to the show, but at least the kids will have the "victory" of preventing any monetary gain.

You realize that's a myth, right?  Not that it has anything to do with this thread, but I hate that myth.
 
2013-09-20 02:10:22 PM  

show me: I think the parent did the child a huge favor.


I've mentioned in previous threads that in my Junior year of high school I got suffered to an NSync concert. Based on that experience alone, I wholeheartedly agree with you.

2013-09-20 02:10:39 PM  
I approve of this action, but the parents already failed when they contributed to this "band"'s success and popularity by buying tickets in the first place.
 
2013-09-20 02:10:45 PM  
Up to $24,100.

Someone has no intention of paying that.

That's where you screwed up.  You should have started singing at her.

I know your initial instinct is to complain, and sometimes it's overwhelming to overcome.  When she argues and starts telling you why the band is awesome and that you don't get it, you can start agreeing.  Then become obsessed.  Wear the t-shirt when her freinds come over and make sure you get the new album in iTunes before she wakes up that day.  Hell, wake her up for breakfast blasting the new single in an iHome.

I think this is probably some really good viral marketing but...

One of the most important jorbs one has as a parent is to pick your kids friends. If you let them hang out with trash, don't be surprised if your precious snowflakes become trash. Also, thank god I have 2 sons. I only have to worry about 2 peenors instead of all of them.

I have a 12 year old daughter, and go figure...  She's a huge One Direction fan.  She's also a Dance Moms fan.  Given the choice, I'll take One Direction any day.

As far as her behavior goes...  She's 12.  My wife and I have to keep a pretty close eye on her.  But she's responsible.  And we make it a point to make friends with the parents of whomever she hangs out with.  So far so good.

In the end, I think my wife will have to be the one to REALLY keep an eye out in the upcoming years.  Considering the girl is a little clone of her mother, clearly, mother knows what to watch for.  All I can really do is be prepared to jump to her defense when something really goes wrong.

Put me down in the "child terrified his mom will sell my One Direction tickets on eBay for prank calling" category. It's almost a phobia at this point.

I presume someone actually bid a couple hundred so it might just default to that if all those high bids are retracted.

except you forgot the hive mind. one on one sure an adult probably wins but we're talking one parent against the combined efforts of large group of individuals. You think they don't share ideas, strategies, brainstormed, plot against parents etc? it only takes one person in the large group to be smarter or more savvy than you... doesn't have to be your own kid.
Also I'm not talking 12 or 13 but more like 16 or 17 yr olds BTW...
 
2013-09-20 02:15:32 PM  
I'm all for ticket selling and the public humiliation bit, but going and degrading someone else and their children is a bit out of line, because then you make enemies with other potenially bad parents, which leads to more shiat slinging. I've seen this handled more articulately and yes it is possible to do this without making yourself look just as bad as your demonspawn.

That said, if this is just an ordinary ticket scalper with a bit of creativity, this is Genius!

So pull the tickets from the online auction and sell them to some co-worker for face value.

You seem to be under the impression that the parents can't outwit a bunch of stupid teenagers. These girls couldn't even sneak out to a boys house without getting busted, they ain't exactly Mensa candidates.
 
2013-09-20 02:17:30 PM  
The parent is just as if not more childish than the daughter in this post.  I'm all for selling the tickets if the child did something wrong- but not blasting them in such a horrible fashion on the internet.  That comes across as petty and stupid.  I watched a father yesterday pull his 3 year old daughter (who wasn't listening to him immediately) and start scolding her in front of the other kids saying "We're never coming back here.  Take a look around you, it's the last time you'll ever see it!  Are you looking!?"  The girl was sobbing hysterically by that point.  Sick a**hole, she's 3.  That's how this parent is coming off, too.  Just sell them and save the sermon for the daughter.

Also, don't be shocked when "you may hate me now" becomes "you may hate me forever" so parents might want to find a few boundaries for themselves.
 
2013-09-20 02:19:22 PM  

I_Am_Weasel: Best way to teach your children is to act like one yourself, I suppose.


Surprisingly, yes.
Once you mimic their petty behavior, it's amazing how quick they "get it".

I had  a policy of  "response in kind" with my teenage niece that included ranting and temper tantrums in response to ranting and temper tantrums. Initially, the rest of the family took offense to me yelling back at her in kind. This included her mother yelling at me for me openly mocking her in public for going full scale drama queen.

However, within short order, I became the only member of the family she wouldn't try this crap on. She's now in her 20's now and still pulls it on her parents, but only if I'm not in the room. When I'm in the room, she acts like an adult.

You're reading the tail end of an emotional transaction and projecting from there. Given that this was obviously borne of frustration and everyone agrees that it is a quality parenting move, it's actually far more likely that your assumption is in error. Assumption makes an ass out of you, as the old saying goes.
