Are you looking for some One Direction tickets? Two angry parents put their daughters’ tickets up for sale on eBay after the girls got into trouble this week.
The four tickets are for the October 25 show in Sydney and are on sale on ebay. The last bid was $356.
But really, you’re not here to get One Direction ticket news, are you? You want to know about the story behind the tickets.
According to the eBay posting, the daughters, let’s call them One Directioneer 1 and 2, lied to their parents about sleeping over at an older guy’s house. In addition to that, they also got their friends to lie to their parents.
Well the parents of One Directioneer 1 and 2 aren’t too happy about that.
The mother writes on eBay: “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. THE TICKETS ARE SEATED IN ROW O section 57. REMEMBER AUCTION IS FOR ALL 4 TICKETS.”
The tickets were reportedly purchased for One Directioneer 1 and 2’s birthday but the parents had no problem revoking the tickets after their girls lied to them. But lying isn’t even the biggest issue here. The parents are worried that their little girls are going to get pregnant before they’re ready.
The eBay message reads: “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!!!”
The parents selling their daughter’s eBay tickets end their message with one simple lesson: “I’m not your friend. I’m your mother.”
The message reads: “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 nurture bad habits in my teen age child.”
Of course, this entire message may have been made up in an effort to raise ticket prices. There are plenty of people willing to buy One Direction tickets but people also like to buy something with a story behind it. More than 50 people have already bid on the tickets which now stand at just under $400.
Do you think the eBay sale is real? If so, what do you think about this parenting technique? Is selling the One Direction tickets the right thing to do?
