Got a kick out of this one! There is Craigslist link where you can buy the Xbox 360.
i would have been harsher on the kid
I would have made the kid personally take it to the door of a low income family as a gift.
Seems like the mom is doing a good job to me.
Fixed that for ya.
Good catch! Didn't do that on purpose. Apologies.
He might have bought it himself. I'm 16 and I've bought a GBA when I was 10(?), DS when I was almost 13, half a GCN when I was 11, and a Wii back in 2006 when I was 15.
You don't have to be that enterprising to buy a game console. But he should learn how to do his chores and use the Private Browsing option.
Oh wow, never thought this would be news...
what 13 year old doesnt know how to clear his cookies?
clean cookies? oh oh.. i'm toast
As for the Mom...good for her. kids these days get away with way too much.
good job Mom!
hell, i would have taken the computer away. canceled his myspace account, and GIVEN his 360 away. just to put the kid in his place. looks like that kids gonna be trouble, with the worst to come...
Myspace is really weird. I hate it. No 13 year old should have a Myspace.
Also, the kid should know how to clear his cookies and i'm surprised his Mom knows how to check cookies.
I'm not even sure my parents know what cookies are, so I never bothered.
ha! i was thinking that too. my mom can barely turn the computer on!
Good for her.
More parents need to be like this woman.
BTW, it breaks the MySpace TOS agreement to be under the age of 14 with an account.
So chances are, when they get word, they'll shut it.
GOOD. Little brat.
Thats ridiculous, I mean I know breaking the vacuum cleaner was stupid but no no need to sell his XBox!
About the porn, I hope this teaches all teenagers a lesson: password protect your computer with a 50 digit password with 5 different encryption techniques on all your data! Seriously, though, most teenagers are gonna watch porn, its all to do with hormones etc.
^^^How much does a new vacuum cost? It could be quite a lot of money for a decent one.
Mom is definitely doing a good job.
Ha! Similer thing here, my Mum knows what cookies are 'coz she clears them sometimes to stop the internet browser slowing down (not so much of a problem since we got the new iMac, TBH) but she probably has no idea how to check them.
My Dad literally cant turn our iMac on because the power button is on the back.
Also, I use Firefox Portable, which runs entirely off a USB key to thats also where it stores all cookies, history, bookmarks etc.
....and porn cookies. Don't forget those tasty, soft, supple porn cookies.
How could I possibly forget those
What would you have done?
As a previous teenage boy, i have to still say, well done mum!!
Seriously, he was a devil. Fight fire with fire.
I think breaking the vacuum was done on purpose, and the money she raises will get a new vacuum cleaner (maybe a Dyson if the bids get high enough ). So I think the punishment fits the crime. Hopefully he'll learn.
Now the kid won't feel so bad when he puts her in a nursing home.
