NC dad caps laptop for daughter's Facebook post.

Posted 10 February 2012 - 12:47 PM

This is truly a gem among gems.

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.

Her post:

Quote

To my parents: I'm not your damn slave. It's not my responsibility to clean up your [expletive]. We have a cleaning lady for a reason. Her name is Linda, not Hannah," he read from his daughter's Facebook page. "If you want coffee, get off your [expletive] and get it yourself. If you want a garden, shovel the fertilizer yourself, don't sit back on your [expletive] and watch me do it. If you walk in the house and get mud all over the floor that I just cleaned, be my guest, but clean it up after you are done getting [expletive] everywhere. I'm tired of picking up after you. You tell me at least once a day to get a job.

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.

Father's rebuttal:

Quote

He said that "cleaning lady" was a friend that helped cleaned the house, as a favor, and that Hannah should never refer to her as a "cleaning lady" ever again.

. "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?




Cliff Notes:
- gun owning IT worker
- teenage daughter
- laptop
- over blown post on her facebook account
- nine hollow point rounds

personally, i think its a little bit of an overreaction. i don't have a kid so idk exactly how i would feel and I'm sure i would be pretty mad but this guy seemed out of control mad at his daughter over something stupid on stupid facebook.

He should have just DBANed and sold the laptop on e-bay (he goes on about how expensive the machine was). Then he'd get his point across and get some of his money back.

I know, I keep seeing people posting about how violent this guy is. He's shooting a laptop. You've seen Thorian empty his vintage soviet pistols on a Gateway Nomad and you don't call him a violent maniac.

Well she also said that one of her parents close friends was their cleaning lady. The guy needed to punish her somehow in a way that'll stick, and shooting up her laptop did just that (along with posting it on the internet).

I give that gentlemen a *slow clap*

Kudos to him. Although he needs a lesson in brevity.

Theatrical, but he could have just kept the laptop for himself. I didn't see any pink stickers or anything like that plastered on there!

This is why I reinforced my case with inch think steel :P

No, I saw something on the news about this talking about how horrible this guy was but quite frankly I don't really see the issue.

edit:
what the hell did he do to the laptop that took 6 hours?

Bitch be lucky she ain't had my dad...

that laptop would have found it self destroyed in a much more painful manner...

I remember once trying to say I "worked to hard for this family". My father brought me on a little trip and showed what a real man's month work is, I learned real quick to appreciate having a bed to sleep in every night (my father drove tractor trailer, he was home 1 day out of every 8).

My dads strict, no doubt about it, but I don't think he'd do that. He's too nice. ;)

And you're representative of all teenagers? Go away.


Anyways, this guy rocks. It sucks that he shot the computer rather than selling it or something, but good work anyway.

well deserved! That girl should see in rural areas of my country, some kids from very poor families with disabled or one parent missing, supports his/her whole family with number of siblings while making time for schooling even.
I've seen kids bitching about things like getting black iPhones when they wanted white ones and shit! Makes me think their parents should have killed them in the crib! :hmmm:
