Is that a compliment? I'm not sure whether to thank you or not.
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

I'm much more of a nasty rotter in real life, especially with vapid or vacuous verbiage from the ill read & intellectually challenged. - TheGingerMan

Don't be a cheap cunt. - Deuce Dropper

This is not the old way of parenting. Trust me, my family use to live the "old way" of parenting. It would have never gotten to this point. The kid would be too busy doing real work or getting it with a belt or cane depending on the father.

"Old way" I don't think that word means what you think it means.

Not so smart.

Waste of money on a laptop. It also appears he has more money than brains IMO.

About as smart as the idiot that bought a new Iphone 4 just to put a bullet in it. Not original at all, and a total fail for everyone.

Kids vent about stuff. That's why they are teenagers. The Internet has changed how we communicate and now she (his daughter) has done something quite normal which is vent about being a teenager. Had this father overheard a conversation twenty years ago over the phone would he have put holes in the phone? If he saw a notebook or diary 30 years ago would he have put holes in all the books. If he overheard a conversation 50 years ago would he have put a hole in her head.
The way he started that and spoke about it was fair. Had he ended it by saying that being a teenager is difficult and that she is still loved by her parents regardless of what she said or did, I would consider it parenting the good old way.

Child whines on the internet about parent, parent retorts on the internet in a childish manner. I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Yeah, but when I was growing up it was my dad who was always slamming the door. Don't know how we could have taught him a lesson.
