Nice try

Today, I snuck out of the house to go to a party. When I got back later, I tried climbing back up the rope-ladder I'd set up earlier, leading back through my bedroom window. I was halfway up when it broke free. I sprained both my ankles and had to shamefully ring the doorbell to get back in. FML

I have to disagree with this. Life is short. I am adult now and I missed out on so much as a kid because I was too worried about getting in trouble. OP had to sneak out because the parents weren't ok with the party. The ankles are punishment enough.

Life is short therefore you should sneak out and party? Underaged drinking is such a good idea (figuring if you have to sneak out you're still living with your parents and under 21), and even if you don't you can still get in trouble for just being there. Yea you may seem "cool" for doing it, but I'd rather be a loser and stay home then go out and party. It's not worth it in the long run. But that's just my opinion.

I'm not frowning at her choice to go to a party. I'm frowning at her decision to disregard her parents and what their wishes may have been.
If something bad had happened to OP at that party, her parents would've been devastated to have woken and found their kid missing. When I go to parties, I'll alert my parents (we've established a lot of trust), and give them either friends phone numbers or general area if I'm not home by the next morning. My sister used to sneak out like this a lot, and she's had too many dangerous encounters. Life is too short, you're right, but no one is invincible to dangers of any kind.

TL; DR- OP is not invincible, and something could've gone very wrong.

The only "sneaking out" I have done is going into the garage in the middle of the night and working on my server or a project. My parents only cared if i woke them up because the garage door was squeaky and their bedroom had a hole in the wall for an AC with a thin wood cover over it that went into the garage. Occasionally i had the music turned up too loud.

Well doc, OP probably wants a second opinion. I dont think, however, that they deserve one. Should we leave ankles as a painful reminder to stop being an idiot?

OP is probably the cat burglar that fell through the sky light in a botched home invasion and tried to sue the homeowners for damages. While OP won a hefty settlement, they are also an embarrassment among the guild of thieves.
