The gist is a gun owning IT worker has a rebellious daughter who posted a grossly misinformed post about her life with her family. The father posts a ten minute video reading her post, his response, disappointment ensues, and then puts nine hollow point rounds in her laptop.
You could just pay me for all the [expletive] I do around the house.
Every day when I get home from school, I have to do dishes, clean the counter tops, all the floors, make all the beds, do the laundry and get the trash. I'm not even going to mention all the work I do around your clinic. And if I don't do that every day, I get grounded. Do you know how hard it is to keep up with chores and schoolwork? It's freakin' crazy.
I go to sleep every night at ten o'clock because I am too tired to stay up any longer and do anything else.
I have to get up at five in the morning, to get ready for school. On the weekends, I have to sleep with my door locked so my little brother won't come get me up at six."
I'm tired of this [expletive]. Next time I have to pour a cup of coffee, I'm going to flip [expletive],
I have no idea how I have a life. I'm going to hate to see the day when you get too old to wipe your [expletive] and you call me, asking for help. I won't be there. Signed, Your Pissed Kid.
. "Pay you for chores that your supposed to do around the house? You come home from school and you have a list of chores that are on the wall because you can't remember them if you don't. They are sweep the living room and kitchen floor, which total would take you about three minutes. If the countertops are dirty, wipe them down, which takes about a minute. If the dishwasher is full and has been run, empty it and put the dishes away, if it's not make sure all the glasses and stuff are in the dishwasher."
"If you have any laundry, of your own, do it,"
"And if your bed is unmade, do it. You don't have to do my laundry, you don't have to make my bed, you don't have to make the guest bed. You have to make your own bed."
"You are 15, going on 16-years-old. You want things for your laptop, you want a new battery, you want a new cord, you want a new camera, you want a new phone, you want a new iPod, but you won't get off your lazy [expletive] to even look for a job,"
"The only job that you've applied to is the one that I made you apply to, because I got the application for you."
"Your responsibilities include waking up on time and getting on the bus," he ranted. "That's the end of your responsibilities each day.
Sure I've seen the parent destroy the odd Xbox or two out of frustration, but I think the father did an excellent job to get through to his daughter. I am curious if this might work for some of our hardware guys at work with problem users. Hmmm...
So you young'ns out there - have you forced your parents into a similar punishment? Perhaps for a sibling?
Parents out there - how do you punish your kids now a days with every damn thing has access to the webz and entertainment that make grounding less of a punishment? Take the one laptop, two smart phones, three game stations, and four iPads and put them in a lock box? Set up a firewall block for most of your kids items? Yell a lot?
