Today, my son surprised me on my birthday with tickets to a concert I really wanted to see. I was excited, especially since I planned to buy them but couldn't due to the fact it was too expensive. I was ecstatic, until I found out he'd stolen my credit card to buy them. FML

Box up something he has and give it to him for his birthday. If he's old enough to know how to use your card with all the correct info, he's old enough to know that's wrong.

.. But ... Didn't you plan on buying them anyways? That is so nice for him to think of you! .. Although you bought them, it's the thought that counts! Have a great time at the concert!

To all the brain dead people who are saying "it's the thought that counts" he stole the credit card, used the card without permission , he deserves to be punished. Severely . Theft is theft

Wait #5 you are going about this all wrong he knew she wanted to go to the concert but he probably didnt know she didnt have enough money so he use her credit card thinking that maybe money is endless on it and bought it.

Might as well go now. Don't wanna look like an unappreciative prick. Money will come in and you can pay it off.

Unappreciative? Personally, I'd be livid. He could have put OP in a very bad situation for bill-paying. OP, first off, try to get a refund. If that doesn't work, call your bank and report your card stolen. I'm sorry he got your hopes up like that, it's terrible! :(

I can see the merit of that comment. I mean, most teenagers here don't understand the concept of money. They think everything on the card are free and infinite amount of money comes out of the ATM!

27- That's not true... at all. As a matter of fact, a lot of teenage friends including myself have jobs, and we fully understand "the value of a dollar". Way to summarize an entire generation though. Just because OP son pulled a tricky move, doesn't mean every teenager is naïve to money value.

Especially in today's economy. It's more important than ever that we know what to spend our money on and how.. A lot of teenagers aren't as stupid as adults think But thanks for the faith :)

#27, I'm 17, have a job, and save 90% of what I earn every two weeks. I certainly know the value of a dollar, and most of my friends do as well. Don't base your generalizations off the idiot stereotype teenagers.
