Recently my teenagers have taken to hanging up on me when they don’t like my answers. A conversation might go like this:
Them: Hey mom, can I go to a party with a bunch of naked women and stay out until 1:00 in the morning?
Me: That would be a definitive, NO.
Them: But, all my friends are going. Why are you so overprotective?
Me: Because it is my…
Them: K. Bye. *click*
So? I have created this. A Spreadsheet:
What does one do with this spreadsheet you ask? I’ll tell you. For every one time they hang up on me, I return the favor five times. Over the several days following a teenage hangup, they unsuspectingly call me and about 30 seconds into the conversation, I hang up on them.
They have no idea it’s on purpose.
Him: What’s wrong with your phone? Did you drop it or something?
Me: Nope. I don’t know why it keeps disconnecting you.
Him: It’s doing it all the time.
Me: And you know what’s so weird?
Me: It only happens when I am on the phone with you.
Him: *laughs* Maybe it hates me.
That? Is intelligent mom revenge.
