That's less than $35 per teen. They must have had groupon or something.

Let me guess: he advertised the party on Facebook?

*clicks*

Oh, Twitter. Close enough.

Chances are, he's going to vanish and someone will find him in about 100 years, buried under the foundation of the house.

If he were my son, he'd be getting jobs to work off some of the cost, would have learned real fast exactly how a switch feels and be basically grounded for life.

Now, if this wasn't his fault, by not realizing every psycho kid within 100 miles would respond to a FaceBook party call, the switch might be left outside. Though, one kids started flowing in, he could have tried to stop them and failing to do so, called the cops before things got out of hand.

There are the cool kids, and there are the super cool kids. The super cool kids know not to have all the dweebs at their parents house trashing it. They go to the other kid's parties, drink their parents booze, Fark the cheerleader and leave the mess behind.

I wonder if posting a party to social media is enough for a charge of inciting a riot.

It should be.  How farking stupid are kids these days?  Not that kids were any smarter in my day, of course, but our ability to do stupid shiat was more limited by technology.

Fark I sound old, don't I.

If he didn't know this he is an idiot and should be locked away for his own safety.

Wait - you can insure property against your kid's douchebaggery? Because that sounds like an easy out for the insurance company to me.

This is just a normal southern Ontario thing.  Kid's parents take off, kid has party, house gets trashed, cops get called.  i remember this stuff happening when I was in high school 30 years ago.  Social media has just upped the ante.

I have no idea what the cost of iron railings are these days, but that looked like the worst of it. The building was unfinished, no carpets or furniture in the way. Cleanup called for snow shovels and a shop vac. I say the $70k figure is from the same calculator that figures drug hauls.

Or the family is trying to get $70k to pay for finishing this white elephant. Watch it turn out the dad was in on the party, wanted the kids to overload the structure and they could sue the architectural firm for under engineering it.

Yeah. Teenagers having wild parties is a southern Ontario thing!

I think the kid holding the mail box and his friends should spend 90 days in jail making steel mailboxes.

From the looks of that house, the parents can afford it.
 
2014-05-05 01:56:10 AM  
Insurance fraud. Construction stalled because they were out of money. Parents gave the kid the wink nod to trash it for a paycheck.
 
2014-05-05 02:05:09 AM  
I'm surprised it got to that point. I would think that by the time about a hundred kids were there, neighbors would have called the cops.

Csb...my next door neighbor left their teen son home by himself when they were traveling. Of course, the kid decided to have a party by their pool. It was a pretty noisy party, but when the DJ got set up at about midnight, it just turned from irritating to unbearable, so I called the cops. The neighbor on the other side of the property had another solution. He got his garden hose and just sprayed it wildly over the fence. The mood at the party changed instantly from festive to angry. Luckily, the cops arrived before the kids could mob the old guy.

We went over the next day to give the old guy a box of pastries in appreciation for what he did. He said the DJ came over the next day to speak with him about some equipment that was ruined by the water. The old guy gave the DJ $500 but only if the DJ promised never to return to our neighborhood for a party ever again.

Running a controlled house party must be a big challenge these days.  You'd basically have to hire a professional bouncer/doorman and do it by invitation only.  Invited guests get one of those wristbands that you have to cut off to remove.  Everybody not wearing one gets the boot.

My folks went out of town for a week when I was 17, and I threw a party for a bud who was leaving for Basic Training. We planned on maybe 2 kegs, probably about 50 people.

About 350 showed up.

Luckily, the tavern down the street was more than happy to keep us supplied. We went through 15 kegs, probably 4-5 half gallons of various liquors and probably 30 cases of beer that folks had brought themselves. This in the days before the internet, when all it took was one dipshiat girlfriend with access to a copy machine. The Pops' speakers got dragged out to the back porch, someone discovered the old reel-to-reel tapes of the early 70s and late 60's rock that Pop had recorded and stuffed in a box years earlier.

The parents came home a few days later, and the house was spotless. That's how they busted me. We'd even shampooed the carpets. There wasn't even a speck of bread crumb on the kitchen counter.

That party got talked about for 15 years after.

You know what? I'm glad that house got trashed. Look at that farking place. It's a grotesque display of excess wealth. Donate the money to hungry kids instead. fark. The kind of people who build shiat like this are what's wrong with the world.

I'm still trying to picture 15 kegs consumed by 350 people or so in less than a 12 hour period. Maybe they had kegs sitting around while they were cleaning up, lol.

Came to say the same thing, it looks like a shipping container with windows. They should have trashed it all the way down to the ground.

Unless you rented the LA Coliseum for the night, do not advertise your party on social media.

Yeah, that and cell phones have been real gamechangers (yes, I am old).
I went to a younger co-workers party once- she was 22 and had invited us and some other folks from work etc.
Her 18yo sister invited a few friends (this was pre-social media-but post cell phone saturation), that amazingly quickly turned into about 100 folks at the house.  About the time it was starting to get really out of control, and the homeowner realized her sister didn't even know most of the people, the cops showed up.
We were really glad they came and shut it down.
I can't imagine what it is like know with twitter and fb.  It doesn't even have to be the kid whos parents owned the place who advertised it, anyone who showed up might have.
Its a little freaky.
And get off my lawn.

When I was about 18 my best friend's parents went to Florida for a couple of weeks and left him there. He sent money to a girl he knew in Missouri for bus fare to TN; she brought a friend. My parents had also gone to Florida for a week or so at this time so I ended up staying over at his house for several of those days and nights.

/no we didn't invite more people to show up
//just us and the two girls
