major melt down!!!

dakotamoon's picture

I’m going through my mail, paying bills like we all do, and I open some bills I have never seen before. It’s a bill for 1,763.89….WTF… it is for, Beat Box, four of them. Little mini speakers that you can attach to any ipad, iPhone, MPs, laptops, computers kindles, almost anything. I went crazy! I walked from room to room to see what all my little darlings were doing. Everyone was on a cellphone.  They were all in their rooms with the TV’s on, the computers & laptops on, playing video games. The top of my head was on fire…I exploded! And that is not the worst part of it. The cable bill was over $500.00 dollars from all the movies they rented.

Then I walk downstairs and one of my little one’s is at the door holding my wallet to pay a pizza guy.....I sent the pizza guy away, went from room to room taking anything electronic. I rented a mini storage container, and it’s now in my driveway filled with all the electronics.

What I would like to do is have a yard sale and sell it all. I left one TV, and it’s in the living room. And I closed the pool….NO swimming either. I know there are lots of moms and dads on this site that can so relate to my major melt down. Plus when I pulled in the garage, I noticed a new bicycle that I didn’t buy. At this point I don’t know what I will or won’t give back to them. It is way too easy for kids to sit at a computer and purchase merchandise. Now that I have calmed down, I feel like I’m the monster. Fear moms & dads, Have you had a major melt down like this? Or I’m I the only crazy one?????

Sounds just like that movie with Christina Applegate 'Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead'. When she found out her 'kids' had spent all the money she earned on a state of the art entertainment center complete with the entertainment, and the one boy bought his girlfriend a $500 diamond ring..

Hey Dakota,

Yep, I think that all of us parents with teens and preteens have gone through that meltdown. I have an 8 year old son and a 17 year old daughter (that are still living in the house more but they are grown and gone). My daughter let my son play a game on her cell phone. He asked her for her itunes password and without thinking she gave it to him. The next month I get a $600 bill. He was buying things for the stupid game from the website. Luckily for me I called and explained what happened and they dropped the charges. 

That actually wasn't that bad as far as a melt down for me though. My big meltdown was due to my daughter's facebook postings from her laptop. I couldn't do the same as the guy in this video (you've probably seen it) because of county ordinance on shooting but I did let her watch me destroy it with my bare hands. I feel for ya.

HELLO SAPPY, the only way I know how to contact you now is like this. I hope I get back all my shark pictures. I'm the type not to go crazy yet. I sure hope they get the pictures back. My profile page I'm kind of bummed but they said they will be able to put it back. I don't even know if you're going to get to read this or even if it's personal or public we will see. I don't even know what to do so I'm going to push this button and see what happens. Hopefully talk to you later. Changsha
