An Australian mom got all riled up recently by what she perceived as her daughter’s rule-breaking behavior, so she decided to make the punishment severe by taking away something very precious. The mom decided to auction off her daughter’s One Direction concert tickets and those of her “bitchy little friends” to the highest Ebay bidder.
The mom has decided to add a little descriptive language to the listing, which is part of the reason that the tickets have 88 bids so far, driving the price up to what is currently $24,100.
While we think that the daughter’s actions – apparently, she was lying about her whereabouts and sleeping over at “some older dude’s house” – were obviously something that warrants punishment, this mom’s rant seems to take the act from a punishment to a strange form of revenge, and we question her choice of words.
Referring to your own daughter as a “trollop” on the internet seems a bit rough, but comments such as “Tricks like this on OUR parents is how HALF of you were conceived .....And why a lot of your friends DONT have an address to send that Fathers day card to...” just seems unduly cruel.
This tough mama clearly doesn’t agree though with our point of view, while she says that she knows her mom will hate her, she’s setting valuable boundaries for her daughter, playing the whole, “I’m your mom, not your friend” card.
Here’s the mom’s full concert ticket description:
THIS AUCTION IS FOR ALL 4 ONE DIRECTION TICKETS IN SYDNEY OCTOBER 25th. You can thank my daughters self righteous and lippy attitude for their sale. See sweety? And you thought I was bluffing. I hope the scowl on your bitchy little friends faces when you tell them that your dad and i revoked the gift we were giving you all reminds you that your PARENTS are the ones that deserve love and respect more than anyone. And your silly little pack mentality of taking your parents for fools is one sadly mistaken. Anyhow. Your loss someone else's gain who deserves them! THE TICKETS ARE SEATED IN ROW O section 57. REMEMBER AUCTION IS FOR ALL 4 TICKETS and will be sent registered post
