She's learning a great truth of life early: that when you're a teenager you think that you're a brilliant mix of ninja/criminal mastermind and your parents couldn't count to 11 without your dad unzipping his fly when in reality even your golden retriever is rolling its eyes at you.

noitsnot: 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,

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


Yeah. They're obsessed with One Direction, not Breaking Bad.

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.

As someone who has already gone through what you are soon going to experience, I highly recommend you start the heavy drinking now.  You need the head start.

Start preparing for the time when your "friends" start telling you they have a countdown timer for when she turns 18, or just start hanging around a lot.  Usually about 4-5 years from now.

Other Direction confused by all the Hip-Hop-La.

If it were the U.S., there would be a 50 percent chance the daughter would sue. The judge would rule that the parents had to buy 4 tickets to whatever she wanted per year.  And the father would be ordered to dress like One Direction for a year.

My stepdaughter insisted I knew nothing about computers.  I'm a unix system administrator with decades of experience.  One time she was being exceptionally biatchy at me so I warned her, "stop this attitude or I will disable your internet access."  She was stupid enough to say, "as if you could".  About 10 seconds later she said, "what the f*ck!  MOM!"  No, I didn't let her mother (my wife) talk me into turning her access back on.

For the non-geeks, you can block the internet at the router for specific computers a number of different ways.  It's not hard.

You want to know how I know you're not American?

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.

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

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.



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.

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.

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.
