 Deputies advised the man of his options, and he said he would handle the discipline.

...lazy like a FOX. I'm sure he'll learn his lesson now that he has no way to access the internet.

/why did I never think of this as my ex would sit around in his underwear playing videogames while I mowed the lawn and cleaned the house with a full time job and TBI (traumatic brain injury).

My Grandson is Lazy
And I'm Crazy
My Head is Dizzy
And The Air is Breezy.
So, come here may be?

Because of the traumatic brain injury?

Taser him until he gets his life in order. That'll do the trick.

So you would call the cops on him or cut the internet?

/if it were me, I'd put the router in a lock box, (Al Gore would approve since he invented both the internet and lock boxes) then change the wi-fi/administration passwords.   Cheaper then buying a new cord when you want the internet to work again.
//or you could ovary up and confront him, but since it's your ex, i'm guessing you already did.

If the grandfather has custody of the 17 year old, something bad must have happened to the parents.    Good luck to those two.

The what?

/ kidding, just barely. I remember very little for the better part of a year except random bits, like coming home from a week away to find a week's worth of dishes on the counter. Forgetting what I was doing but becoming aware that I was holding a gigantic kitchen knife. "What is this? Oh, there is soap on it. I must have been doing the dishes. I guess I'll continue, he doesn't look like he's at a save point yet."
// brains are touchy. Don't ever fly with a concussion or any other bump to the head. The more you know.

I always find it funny how in this situation and on cops when there is a domestic call they tell the police "I dont want them arrested". The kid threw a hissy fit and kicked a hole in the wall, depending on the state grandpa could have put his stuff outside and changed the locks.

akya: So you would call the cops on him or cut the internet?


I was thinking cops, but cutting the internet would have been fun too. I just kind of fantasized about the cops tazing some energy into him. (Yeah he's long gone, I upgraded many models up once I finally realized I was dating someone who treated me like garbage and was a 0 on the looks, personality and smarts scales).

For the grandpa, he has this gigantic bargaining chip he's not considering. Have someone lock the router down, so that the grandkid has to do chores in order to earn time online. I know parents who change the wireless password every day- there are so many low tech ways to do this. Hell, just charge him money if he doesn't do them or you'll disconnect the internets.

The My Little Pony Killer: 911 is not some buddy you can call up when you need to vent about problems that you let get out of hand.


I could not find anywhere in the article that 911 was called.  It stated he called the Sheriffs dept because the 17 year old boy punched an hole in the wall and walked out when the 72 year old man cut off the internet.  He was not venting, he was trying to find out how to handle the boy who was being violent.  When the police arrived he also stated that the boy was lazy and not doing what he was told.  When I am 72, I am probably not going to start fighting with a 17 year old unless I am attacked.  He received suggestions from the police on what actions he can take, and I do not see a problem with that.

He is using the police as a babysitter.

Calling 911 is different from calling a member of the police/sheriff's department.  One is an emergency call, the other is just an interaction with a member of law enforcement.

Now may be the time to reveal my postal carrier is usually a chick, which brings up some interesting questions.

None of my babysitters had guns/tazers, but to each their own. I could see a 72 year old calling the cops, worried about further violence from an unstable/irresponsible 17 year old. The "lazy" comment was probably when the cops asked what instigated the fight. Possibly he just wanted to find out what his options were for pressing charges. This is Fark though so I'm amazed they all weren't shot in a hail of bullets, or at least the family dog.
 
2014-04-29 01:28:03 PM
So grandpa is upset about the laziness, but calling the cops because someone is acting aggressive and kicking holes in the walls doesn't seem outrageous.

Also, this whole article seems weird, I've been assured by fark that if the cops go out somewhere, they always beat everyone up then figure out what was going on.

Or it's time to bring the router into the Danger Zone. Router in an electrified bird cage? Suspend it from the ceiling in a place where a ladder would be unsafe (ooo!). Cover it in honey and leave it on the porch?

Or you know, lock it up.

When I worked as a 911 dispatcher, we'd get stupid calls like this all the time. Parents calling up complaining that they can't get their child to go to school, and the kid is only seven years old. You're the farking parent, pick up the damn kid and take them to school, you moron.
 
2014-04-29 03:20:07 PM
Aren't people supposed to get in trouble for abusing the emergency call system? There was literally no reason to call the cops. The kid wasn't there and gramps didn't want to press any charges.
 
2014-04-29 04:55:12 PM

It doesn't say that the grandfather called 911. He could have called the non emergency number.
