Would you do this? ( I would :) )
this is on ebay...the item being sold 4x One Direction Tickets

THIS AUCTION IS FOR ALL 4 ONE DIRECTION TICKETS IN SYDNEY OCTOBER 25th. You can thank my daughters self righteous and lippy attitude for their sale. See sweety? And you thought I was bluffing. I hope the scowl on your bitchy little friends faces when you tell them that your dad and i revoked the gift we were giving you all reminds you that your PARENTS are the ones that deserve love and respect more than anyone. And your silly little pack mentality of taking your parents for fools is one sadly mistaken. Anyhow. Your loss someone else's gain who deserves them! THE TICKETS ARE SEATED IN ROW O section 57. REMEMBER AUCTION IS FOR ALL 4 TICKETS and will be sent registered post



...OH YOUR FRIENDS THOUGHT THAT A FEW PRANKS CALLS WOULD PUT ME OFF SELLING THE GIFT WE BOUGHT FOR THEM for YOUR BIRTHDAY because YOU all LIED to us about sleep overs so you could hang like little trollops at an older guys HOUSE????? Pffft!! I find it HIGHLY amusing that you girls think you invented this stuff. Tricks like this on OUR parents is how HALF of you were conceived .....And why a lot of your friends DONT have an address to send that Fathers day card to!!! I'm not your friend. I'm your MOTHER. And I am here to give you the boundaries that YOU NEED to become a functional responsible adult. You may hate me now..... But I don't care. Its my job to raise a responsible adult..not nuture bad habits in my teen age child

I had to look at the link before I realised it wasn't 4 one direction ( ie 'one way' ) tickets to Sydney Australia lol...there was me thinking 'that's an expensive way to treat your daughter and her friends'....doh!

Good for Mum - hope daughter learns a hard lesson - no such thing as a free lunch (and her so-called friends).

Absolutely brilliant. :-D :-D

Good for mum - I would've done the same if any of my kids had done something similar when they were teenagers :-|

Thankfully, they are all very responsible adults now . . . phew! :-D

No,, I most certainly wouldnt,,,,,,,,,its just plain ruthless and spiteful how shes condemned her daughter on that site.,,,,,,its not a lesson learned but fuel for greater retaliation and a bad parent and child relationship......

RR its an auction, And tickets may be sold out so they are worth what ever someone will pay

Roy

Edit, that is the currant bid so it could go much higher as there are still 4 days17 hours left

Rambling Rose Report 20 Sep 2013 20:55

yes indeed Roy, lol it just seemed impossibly expensive to me, I thought maybe I was misreading it ;-)

When you look at what some men will pay for a ticket to an England match played overseas that's peanuts.

Apparently the average secondary-market ticket price for one One Direction Ticket is-

$606.11
£378.82

from- http://finance.yahoo.com/photos/highest-priced-tickets-of-summer-concert-tours-slideshow/one-direction-photo-1373989737587.html

Undoubtedly four together will increase the value.

I wouldn't pay that !!!!!!!!!

See someone had withdrawn a bid of $26,000 au

I think its a made up story as no caring parent would write such stuff,,,,,,they maybe just want to sell the tickets,,

If more parents punished their offspring in this manner the world would have fewer inconsiderate and dishonest people in it. Good on you Mum :-D
