Things You Can’t Unsee – Three

I will never forget the day that I walked into the house to the sound of teenage boys roaring with laughter. Barely able to breathe, Junior explained that he’d found a video of a kid throwing a tantrum because his mother cancelled his World of Warcraft membership. The following ensued…

    • I agree. And while I agree, I will admit that Junior is an avid WoW player. The deal is, he buys his own games and everything that he needs to play it. The same goes for Prince Charming and his Playstation 3. You’d be surprised how being the one footing the bill changes things for teens.

      • That’s true. When my 8-year-old sons started buying their own beer, they saw the value in switching to the Beast instead of the Smithwick’s they were getting me to buy for them.

  4. Um, I’m do not understand why he took his clothes off? He plays world of warcraft- there obviously will be no girls arriving to make him feel better…
    On another note, it was like watching a male version of “The Excorcist.”

  14. Interesting that he only takes his anger out on the softest targets (the bed, himself).

    I must admit, as a child I was prone to the occasional tantrum. I don’t think I ever dressed as a ghost, stripped to my underwear, hid in a cupboard or recreated a famous scene from The Exorcist, though. At least, not at the same time.

    And once again drawing from my own experience, I would strongly advise against placing hidden cameras in a teenage boy’s room.

  24. Now I know what WOW stands for: World of Wankers.

    This kid makes me at my teenage worst look like an absolute amateur.

    I wouldn’t be caught dead in those boxers and now his twisted brother has exposed them to the entire world. But, seriously, the boxers are the least of Superbrat’s worries. It has been decades since I had a problem so insignificant it could warrant this overwrought behavior. If I had a tantrum of that magnitude these days I would immediately succumb to cardiac arrest. (Hey, I never thought of that . . . )

    And speaking of on-camera-YouTube-exposure: I love the fact that cool bro has a mouth full of rubber bands.

    I rejoice every day that I am not a parent to teenage boys. Or girls, for that matter.
