One Australian teenager will have to make new birthday plans, as her mother has posted the tickets she’d bought her to see One Direction in concert on eBay as punishment for being disrespectful.
According to the enraged mother’s eBay post, prospective ticket buyers can thank her daughter’s “self righteous [sic] and lippy attitude for their sale.” The four tickets, which will gain one lucky buyer entrance to the British boy band's sold-out performance in Sydney on Oct. 25, were evidently intended as a birthday gift for her daughter and three of her “trollop” friends.
However, all that changed when the girl allegedly fibbed to her parents about going to a girls’ sleepover when she actually hung out at a boy’s house instead. The mother wrote in the eBay product description: “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 [sic].”
But she didn’t stop there, adding: “...OH YOUR FRIENDS THOUGHT THAT A FEW PRANK CALLS WOULD PUT ME OFF SELLING THE GIFT WE BOUGHT FOR THEM for YOUR BIRTHDAY because YOU all LIED to us about sleep overs so you could hang like little trollops at an older guys HOUSE?????...I find it HIGHLY amusing that you girls think you invented this stuff. 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!!!”
Finally, she ended on a note of parental concern, writing, “I'm not your friend. I'm your MOTHER. And I am here to give you the boundaries that YOU NEED to become a functional responsible adult. You may hate me now..... But I don't care. Its my job to raise a responsible adult..not nuture bad habits in my teen age child.”
The tickets are in Row O, section 57, of Allphones Arena at Sydney Olympic Park, and have already attracted 88 bidders. Highest bidding price was at AU $24,100 ($22,524) as of Friday afternoon.
