Kid breaks vacuum, mom sells Xbox 360, Internet points and laughs

I love it when some snotty punk kid gets taken down a peg or two, and the mother of one particular teenager has truly delivered. The boy was expected to perform chores, but he had other ideas. Rather than do something to earn his sordid keep, he decided instead to break the vacuum cleaner so he didn’t have to do any work. Well, his mother decided that an eye was worth an eye, and is now selling his Xbox 360 to pay for it:

My son seems to think everything should be handed to him on a silver platter, so the XBOX is going bye bye. I do have an assortment of games as well, that I will sell for $15 each.

Price is firm, must replace vaccum that he broke thinking that would get him out of having to do chores.

As if that wasn’t bad enough for the hapless spawn, his mother has also informed the world that she’s busted him for looking at porn sites. His Internet access is now safely locked behind a password and his mother also apparently put a picture of Snoopy on his MySpace. Is it just me, or does this woman sound like the most kick-ass mother in the world?

In all seriousness, this mother is taking no crap from her son and is showing him that if he wants to act like a jackass, there will be consequences. If more parents did this rather than blame outside sources for their brats’ bad behavior, we’d be living in a much, much better world.  Kudos to that woman.
