When reality meets teen boy!


Recommended Posts

Me: "You do realize that in August, you will begin high school work for high school credit and I will NOT be quite as forgiving as I am now."

 

Him: "DO I have to do high school? How about if I just keep doing the easy stuff, write a computer game, make a million dollars, and live at home forever?"

 

Me: Snort, "Yeah, you do that! Make my day. I'll even help you and do ALL of your business accounting myself. You won't have to do a thing, not one bit of paperwork, tax preparation, nothing. I'll control your banking and pay your bills for you."

 

Him: "WOW! You'd do that for me mom? Thanks a lot. That way I won't have to learn any more math, or business stuff."

 

Me: "Oh, yeah....SON, I'd love to do that for you! I'm looking forward to being filthy rich!"

 

Him: "You? Why would you get rich?"

 

Me: "Because if you are too immature to do high school work and too immature to see the value of learning higher level mathematics, then it's a forgone conclusion that whoever counts your money is going to end up with Alllllllll your money. MORE FOR ME!"

 

Him: "MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM! That's not fair!!!!"

 

Me: "Life's not fair. You might want to consider the consequences of letting your brains atrophy at such a young age. By the way, YOU ARE NOT LIVING AT HOME FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE EVEN IF YOU ARE A MILLIONAIRE! Make a plan boy, make a plan because your dad operates by his own father's philosophy of high schoolers, 'Do your work or don't eat. Your choice.' "

 

Him: "No high school, no pizza?"

 

Me: "Failure to complete daily assignments equals NO PIZZA, NO MERCY!"

 

Him: "You know I hate algebra and logic."

 

Me: "I am aware."

 

Him: "I'll go do my algebra."

 

Me: "I was pretty certain you'd see it my way."
