He should have moved the mess too.

Tell her you are in talks to film an episode of hoarders in her room.

Growing up my room was a disaster...at one point my mom came in to dump off laundry I left in the dryer, stepped on something sharp and just stopped coming in.
Oddly enough when I had the chance to move into a better room when an older sibling moved out I managed to take everything out of there in a matter of 2-3 hours, heavy furniture included.  I figured if I hauled everything down a flight of stairs it would be much harder for my parents to change their minds if they'd have to help me move it back up.

F*ck that, that's hard on the back. Just take away her cellphone for a f*cking hour.

I'd like to see that guy try moving all the heavy furniture and shiat out onto the driveway at my house.

No ... seriously. I really need to paint in here.

Some people thrive in environments different than what you, personally, are used to.

If she's on honor roll and your biggest problem is her room isn't tidy enough, you just might be a total douche.

My question is, if her room wasn't tidy enough, where did he put all the mess?
 
2014-04-01 09:53:25 PM
Should have tried a different sign...

Hello, Haley.
Look in your room.
Now back to the driveway.
Now, back to your room.
Now, back, to the driveway.
Sadly, your furniture is not in your room.
But, if you listen to your dad, you will find out all about clean rooms.
Look down. Where did it go?
Who is that? It's the neighborhood bum taking that thing that you like.
... etc :D

Another Government Employee: The vultures would have taken half the stuff in my neighborhood.


Atlanta, huh? Lived in an apt complex in Marietta for a while, and on the day were moving out we just decided to just leave most of our furniture & stuff (since a lot of it was admittedly cheap and sh*tty). From the building we were living in to where the dumpsters were was about a  minute walk at most, and on the last trip to set down some things by there for anyone to take, we noticed a couple things had already been taken. Considering we took about five consecutive trips to drop stuff off there with figuratively no time in between except for walking to and fro, and not ever seeing another person outside this whole time, we were really impressed.

That sign should read: "I have failed to teach my child how to care for her things so now I will humiliate myself on the Internet."

\but he's a "soldier" so we're all like, "Murica, fark yeah!"
\\Guessing we'd react a little different if he had been identified as an "Imam."
\\\"slashies, fark yeah!"
 
2014-04-01 11:23:41 PM
Sounds to me like he was trying to get her to clean it specifically SO he could paint it. Sounds like he got tired of waiting. So he moved all her crap out to get the job done.

Sometimes you just gotta act to get shiat done. Can't wait on a brat forever.
 
2014-04-02 12:16:50 AM
The Army wants every swinging dick they can get to fight, well this guy sure puts the dick in swinging dick.  A 'scream at you till you get it done' kind of dad, well screw him.

With patience and actually talking with your kid, you can get any kid to learn.  If not, then you don't know your kid.  One son has always been the type to clean his room and hated sharing a room because his little bro never cleaned.  And after they got their own rooms, it meant we had to work on the younger kid.  It took some time, but he gets his room clean again by Saturday.  Why Saturday, it is the only day he gets for playing video games.  If he has to clean his room on Saturday, he loses playing video game time.  The nice thing is, we don't care what his room looks like the rest of the week.  He is quite creative, and creative minds don't exactly keep the neatest rooms.  He needs a few days of the week to be himself, and we sometimes need to see his floor to make sure there is no bodies.  He isn't the hoarding type either, as he just got rid of a lot of toys to make room for toys that is more of the older boy level.

Any way, this guy needs to take time to know who his daughter is.  She isn't stupid, she just has different priorities than him, which is good.  He seems to have his a little off.

My rules for my kids rooms 1985 - 2000:

I have to be able to close the door.

There will be no smells emanating from their room.

Liquids will be cleaned up, as to not damage their home.

If they wanted a bedtime tuck in, I had to have a path.

Surprisingly, they turned out to be fairly neat people. Treat them like humans, they act like humans.

How can you be a former mother in law yet have kids?
 
2014-04-02 12:56:57 AM
My grandma would do that with anything of yours that you left out. She wouldn't do it just once, either. She'd drag your errant stuff out onto the lawn until you stopped leaving it places it didn't belong.
 
2014-04-02 01:20:20 AM
looks like he did it for her

Overreact then give in and paint her room.

Divorces don't actually kill the people involved.

Children are evil stupid self-destructing egotistical maniacs.

Parents are stupid evil self-important pricks.

Meh. I've got one tidy kid and one all-natural walking disaster with severe hoarding tendencies. One year the cleaning reminders failed, the time limits failed, the taking away of privileges failed, and it eventually became clear that he would rather accept any ridiculous punishment as long as he didn't have to move his piles of garbage. So I grabbed a bucket and bailed out everything that wasn't furniture, across the hall, onto my bed, in one big pile, then filled huge storage containers with his crap and surrounded my bed. All mixed together exactly as I found it. I gave three instructions: "All garbage goes out. All items get sorted. I get my bed back in three days. You want help? I'll cart garbage out for you." Miracle of miracles he got that shiat done. AND he THANKED me for it MULTIPLE TIMES and apologized, "Sorry mom, I was just too intimidated by the mess to get started." (Awww) Turns out, living in a clean space really is more pleasant.

bdub77: F*ck that, that's hard on the back. Just take away her cellphone for a f*cking hour.


An hour?  They'll be whining for an hour before they even start to clean.  You take it away until the room is clean.

The only time my mom cleaned my room she found my pron stash.  I had to have the talk with my dad.  "How is this porn?  I'm looking at it and it does nothing.  Your brother.  He had a collection.  Hawt chicks diddling themselves.  Full sex acts with money shots.  This is crap.  I couldn't get it up if this chick walked in here and offered to do me every which way but Friday.  '"a Japanese woman fries and egg and asks you about your day ?  What is that?"

OgreMagi: She's an honor student and all you care about is that she cleans her room?  You are a moron.


If you were an honor student, you'd probably understand how logic works.  Nowhere in the article does it state that ALL he cares about that she cleans her room.

That's a really short article.

Go to your driveway.
A Georgia soldier was so fed up with his daughter's sloppy habits that he moved her entire room out of the house....


No I'm not clicking anything on your stupid page.  Either make us pay or don't.

OgreMagi: She's an honor student and all you care about is that she cleans her room?  You are a moron.


No, the moron would be people that make this statement.
So what if you're on the honor roll?  Life has many aspects.
Because you do well in one does not give you a free pass on the others.
Be on the honor roll and have a tidy room. There is no valid reason not to do both of them, as well as many other things.
 
2014-04-02 09:49:13 AM
My mom did this.  Like exactly this.  Except she was too lazy to recreate the entire layout of my room, she just threw everything in garbage bags and put it on the street.  Every year.

So, we're sticking with the idea that "MIL" stands for mother-in-law, with his next line being "enlisted?"

You inferred a whole lot from a short little article, and yet managed to convey your own prejudices quite succinctly.

ONCE.
Now I know girls like clean.
