Barry Lyndon's Annuity Cheque: Mom needs to get herself some psychiatric help.

I feel bad for any kid who has to live in an environment like that.


I'm happy we grew up poor.  Never had to worry about my parents buying my brothers and I nice things for our bdays.  I didn't start going to concerts 'til I had my own job to pay for the tix.

I get the feeling that most farkers in this thread are just pissed about being cock-blocked.

I wonder two things:

1) How much older are we talking here?  15yo hanging with a 17 or 18yo is not as big a deal as say, a 40yo man
2) Why have none of the Farkers asked this same question?  (Shame on you)

Radak: Also a true statement, but mom's eBay listing doesn't exactly portray her as a paragon of foresight and cleverness euther.


Reminds me of an old joke

Two guys are out in the woods when they come across an angry bear about to charge them.
One guy immediately takes off running but then notices that his friend has sat down, taken off his hiking boots and is putting on tennis shoes that he had in his pack.
The first guy goes "What are you doing you idiot, a bear can run 35 miles per hour for a mile or two. You can't beat the damn bear!"
The second guy finishes putting on his tennis shoes, gets up and starts running.
As he catches up to his friend he says "Don't have to outrun the bear, I just have to outrun you."

Mom doesn't have to be a paragon of anything. She just has to outwit a dumb teenager. The bar is low.

Treygreen13: Barry Lyndon's Annuity Cheque: I was physically uncomfortable imagining...


It was every late-twenties, early-thirties, self absorbed, insane woman I've ever known in text form. I could hear her screaming and stomping around in my mind. "Physically disgusted" would've probably been a better phrase though.

OgreMagi: If the parents are smart, they will then burn the tickets in front of her.  That's the route I would have gone, skipping the whole ebay drama crap.



Maybe she could use the money...
 
2013-09-20 02:32:42 PM  

OgreMagi: Treygreen13: jigger: Up to $24,100.

Someone has no intention of paying that.

Yep. Presumably the kid (or one of her friends) is going to no-pay and leave the parents holding the tickets.

If the parents are smart, they will then burn the tickets in front of her.  That's the route I would have gone, skipping the whole ebay drama crap.


Looking at the listing, they have plenty of time to sell them and get some value back. It's only 6 days after the auction closes for the no-pay process to conclude. They can probably just drop them on a ticket re-selling website after this fraudulent auction finishes.
 
2013-09-20 02:33:45 PM  

Lando Lincoln: This sounds like a good way to get attention to your sale of tickets.


Yeah, this is totally fake.

The sin wasn't that they were hanging out with older boys.  That's a moral failing on their part, but they'd be just as in the wrong if they hadn't hung out at some dude's house.

Their collective sin was lying to their parents about where they were going to be.
 
2013-09-20 02:35:46 PM  

Dancin_In_Anson: tin_man: it doesn't take long to figure out where the child's shiatty attitude comes from.

Most teenage kids (and I'm going to assume these fine specimens are in the 13-14 year old range) have shiatty, self absorbed attitudes by default regardless of how good their parenting has been.

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

You and I both.


Wrong. The majority of teenage kids don't have shiatty, self-absorbed attitudes. In my experience the majority are decent, thoughtful people.

I've never used ebay so can someone explain to me how people can bid up the price if they have no intention to pay? Doesn't the site have some way to prevent that cuz if I were to sell something and it gets bought by someone that has no intention of buying the item I'd be pissed and ebay would not get a repeat customer.

yes, but then they'd go on a mis-adventure involving a radio contest, mushrooms, that boarding school you sent her to, disco hitchhikers, stray dogs, car thieves, bullies, a protest, bullies, and then your kid will tell everyone that they had sex in a church confessional booth.

And make it to the concert.

frenchcheesemuseum: 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."

Well f*ck her.

F*ck her in her f*cking f*ckface.


I think the mother's admission that she, too, was once a teen trollop, gets her an exemption.  She was just lucky enough to bang a guy willing to stay with her.

2013-09-20 02:39:37 PM  
In my very limited experience mother/daughter can be pure insanity. When my sister hit her teen years she went through various phases that drove my mother absolutely batshiat crazy. They fought like cats and... meaner cats. My sister eventually calmed down and likewise my mother and of course now we all get along amazingly. Me and my dad kept our heads down and hid for a few years. They both acted ridiculously. I blame hormones.

Of course, my mother probably would never have intarweb-shamed my sister but we didn't have the intarweb back then so we'll never know. :)

Mom:  "So! You and your friends thought it would be funny to bid up the price?!  You know what? I give up. Fine, you can have the tickets back."

dahmers love zombie: 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.


Or you could, you know, not give them cell phones and not allow them to use Facebook at all.
 
2013-09-20 02:41:23 PM  

noitsnot: Yes - thirteen year olds have extra phones and cloned SIM cards. Seems totally plausible.


I don't know about cloned SIM cards, but yeah, extra phones? Believe it. I had a class a few years ago (very _very_ entitled bunch) where that was a problem. They'd bring decoys (sometimes broken) for teachers to confiscate if they're caught. Had one kid who handed me a blue phone when I'd seen him hide a red one. Confiscated them both.

I'd add, "and you are grounded until you pay me the bid price."  Which will never happen.  Which means grounded for life.

/2 to 4 weeks is the standard "grounded for life time frame.

eBay: "If you have excessive unpaid items on your account, we may limit or end your ability to buy."

Also, when you create an auction as a seller, you have the option to block bidders who "Have unpaid items recorded on their account "

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.


Well most have a problem with the self-righteousness not the punishment, so no you aren't doing the same thing at all.

Barry Lyndon's Annuity Cheque: It was petty and vindictive. Had someone said those things out loud in public to her daughter, TLC would have given them a reality show by the end of the week. Don't apologize for this crazy woman. I was physically uncomfortable imagining the Carrie's mom it took to write that.


Hey, now, Carrie's mom has got it going on.

My dad, brother, and I would routinely hunker down in the basement or go to Fry's or something for the better part of the afternoon. On more than one occasion we went inside after "shopping" for an hour or so only to pile back in the car because my mom and sister were still fighting.

eBay: "If you have excessive unpaid items on your account, we may limit or end your ability to buy."

Also, when you create an auction as a seller, you have the option to block bidders who "Have unpaid items recorded on their account "


You can also offer it to second place bid , third and whatnot place bidders.

If I was her, I would cancel the auction, put the tickets back up at face value with buy it now only.

To be fair, I think they're actually a notch better than the BackN'StreetSyncBoys.  A little more rock-pop, a little less contrived R&B/choreography and fake personalities, from what I gather.  Not my cup of tea, but kind of harmless.

By highschool that's about like sending your kids to school in a spongebob t-shirt.  The people I work with are APPALLED that their child isn't allowed to have a cell phone on campus.  What if they need to talk to them?  What if they forgot their kid didn't have basketball on tuesday and accidentally left them?  What if one of their freinds invites them over and they can't check first?  What if something HAPPENED and they COULDN'T CALL?!? WON'T SOMEONE THINK OF THE CHILDREN?!?! WON'T SOMEONE THINK OF THE CHILDREN?!?!?!?

I remember a buddy of mine thought that if he ever went to jail, he would need to have a tattoo above his ass saying 'exit only'.  That's when I explained to him that some big guy named Bubba is going to walk behind you and scream 'fark THE POLICE' and then fark him in the ass.  He thought it wasn't such a great idea afterwards.
 
2013-09-20 03:05:53 PM  
I was all ready to cheer for the parents.

But then I started reading...  It looked like it was written by a spiteful, and biatchy, child.

She would have made more of a point if she would have actually posted something civil.  Instead, she's teaching her child that angry rage and public shaming are how you handle disobedience.

If the daughter does change her ways it will be because she is afraid of what Mom will do, not because it's a better way to live; she won't always be afraid.

Praise in public reprimand in private.

If I had a nickel for every time I was where I said I'd be to my folks between 14-16, I'd owe money.

That said, I was usually at my best friend's house; her parents were never home.

Yeah, me too.  The first concert I went to was Iron Maiden (1987 or so).  The ticket was $17.
In fact, I went to a lot of shows, and never worried much about ticket costs.  I never even bought tickets in advance.  I would just show up and buy them.

Boy, those were the good old days.  Nowadays you can't see Willy Nelson for under $100 per ticket in a small theater in NJ.
 
2013-09-20 03:07:35 PM  

NightSteel: Oh, okay, AUS.. wonder if it's any different there?

Also, looked at the auction.. $12K (AUS) for 4 concert tickets that don't seem to be particularly prime seats? Right now, AUS $ are worth slightly more than US $. I'm betting the kiddies are bidding up the auction to ensure the tickets don't sell in time.


Pretty sure that's wrong.
