Today, after twelve straight hours of work, my fourteen year old son surprised me with a broken window and a cracked TV. He said, "I was swatting away a fly." FML

With a hammer?

Yeah, kids these days have no respect for the parents who work hard to get them a nice fly. No, they just swat it away.

With a hammer?

No the question is did he kill the fly?

I was thinking more along the lines of a baseball bat.

I believe this is a reference to another FML where the parent came home to holes in the wall from the kid trying to swat a fly with a hammer.

If only the bee had landed on the kid's head before everything else...

Ungrateful kids suck

What was he using to swat the fly?! A hammer? Fyl indeed, but he is plenty old enough to work the cost of the new window and TV off!!!

In some places 14 isn't even old enough to get a job...

he could still do yardwork for neighbors and friends. any little odd jobs, at least to help cover the cost. a little honest work is good for the soul, and it will help teach him both caution and responsibility. sorry op. that sucks.

Timmy what I am about to do to you is gonna hurt you more than it did that fly.

That's no excuse for breaking a window and the television. But if it was a spider on the other hand...

If it was a spider, the son should get in even more trouble for not doing more to kill the spider.

Burning the house down is probably the least you could do when seeing a spider.

he takes his swatting seriously.

how the hell does swatting a fly cause that much damage?

Maybe he was swatting it with a baseball bat?

Tell him you're swatting a fly on his behind.

What was he using to swat this fly?
