Today, I am currently grounded for three weeks, have no car, cell phone, or television privileges, and am not allowed to spend more than 10 minutes on the computer a day. The reason why: I was seven minutes past my 9'oclock curfew. I'm 18. FML

if his parents were at least a little sane they would most likely kick him out, them having that authority.

parents can't legally kick they're child out until they're 21

YDI for staying up past your bed time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah I hope you're going to college this fall.

That depends on where you live. It's 18 where I am.

I know probably 90% of users here are under 15, but what the hell is wrong with kids these days!?The OP may be an adult, but as long as he lives at his parents place he follows their rules. If you think living with your parents is hard, try making it in the real world. You'll be running back to mommy and daddy faster than you can say fml.

You know, I RAISED a kid. When they broke rules, the first thing I did was try to figure out what went wrong to prevent it again, and i NEVER punished. Kid's currently heading out to freakin' Yale on scholarships. Punishment achieves nothing, and past about 3, talking things out teaches them how to have relationships in the future.

wow... ur lifes fuked cuz ur curfew is 9 aand ur 18

#89..While I'm sure you meant to correct that other poster..let me just inform you that parents may kick you out at 17. :) Just thought you should know. OP, if you need a place to stay..I live in Amherst, MA Got extra rooms. I'm in college. Problem? you need to pay rent. Oh and be a little friggin nutz.

Honestly, I don't know why you're complaining about not being treated like an adult. If you were responsible enough to handle being an adult, you should have made it on time. It doesn't matter how late you were, you were late. You either break a rule or you don't just like you're either pregnant or you're not. There's no in between.

he may have to follow his parents rules but they went too far for being late seven minutes. that punishment was just stupid

So, 240, do you seriously believe that a 9 O'Clock curfew is reasonable for an 18 year old? Or that three weeks of full grounding and the taking away of his car and cell phone are reasonable for being seven minutes late?

@353: No, it's not reasonable, but if that's what his parents (who sound ignorant and overprotective) want to make him do, then he has to do it. If you work at 9 and you show up at 9:07, there are gonna be consequences for that, aren't there?

your parents suck, if it's their computer, i'de poor water in it while it's on

I partially agree with you, however, What if the kid is in sports? Or a job? I mean it's possible that this person was at a game or at a job and stopped on the way home etc. Traffic can cause 7 minutes of trouble as well. A nine oclick curfew is not reasonable for an 18 year old because many high school activities last longer than that. Sports, Prom. An 18 year old would be a senior in high school. I seriously think there is probably more to this FML, such as he is already grounded for something or was only supposed to go to one location and back. And for the record, I am 21 and I've been paying my own bills and college tuition 100% since I was 19.

the worst part is legally you have no curfew at 18

keeeever 0

@#70 that is most definitely incorrect. i'm almost 100% positive that it's 18, seeing as how that's when they're legally an adult themselves. i don't know who's instilling a false reality in you by telling you it's 21, but i'm pretty damn sure it's not.

yeah im suprised the OP hasnt moved out :S :S i would NOT want to live like that. hell, i'm 14 and my curfew is 11 and to my friends thats early! or maybe because they want him to move out and hes just not doing it on his own so they're making it hell

smiley_girl 0

yea I'm guessing it's a subtle hint to get out.

lol I can´t believe it either! I´m 13 and my curfew is 12 if I´m at my neighborhood´s park hangin out, and if I´m in a party I can stay AS LONG AS I WANT. I love my parents :D... btw, I would be so desperate in your position that I would either move out fast, or kill myself! Nah I´m kidding. But you should really face your parents and tell them to let you live a life!


haha i just turned 14 a couple weeks ago and my curfew when i was 13 was 11:30 now its as late as i want. i came home at 3 am last night

hm...or maybe ur parents just dont care about u to not give a damn but to that sucks, if they're that strict about everything, then FYL indeed..hopefully u have a job so u can move out (and to ppl saying that parents are responsible for their kids until their must depend on where u live, its only 18 in WI)

Your parents are far too naive. You'll be impregnating people in no time, and getting into drugs and smoking pretty soon. I realize many of you are going to flame me, but the truth is the truth. And no, I'm not some old geezer. I'm 20 and don't think it's appropriate for a person even of my age to be out after midnight, unless it's for a good reason (partying doesn't count, unless it's only a very occasional event).

killabee 0

EwWw, are you the oldest or only child? Because I am the youngest and my mom slowly got more and more chill as her kids got older. So my oldest sister- in bed at 10 till she was 18, Me- If I can pay for it, I can do it.

crazy_legs_mcgee 0

you speak the truth. nothing good happens after midnight

HAHAHAHA. wait wait. You're 20 and you think it's not appropriate to be out after midnight? hahahahaha. What are you a mormon? That's just ****** weird. 18 year olds should be allowed to stay out as long as they like. Honestly if you're 20 and not living it up, you are going to have regrets - take this advice from someone older than you. Stop being such a pansy.

I disagree. If you are not staying out past midnight because you think it's the right thing to do won't cause regrets or bad consequences. It will keep you safer and definitely more rested.

#192 It's illegal for you to be out that late. one of my friends was ticked for it. he's 16 too.

to all of those who say they're 12, 13, 14, are you lying to seem "cool" or do your parents really not give a shit about you

LOL! That suxx! =P Hopefully move out soon :3

You must have been home-schooled.

eminem66 0

Thats totally what i was going to say

StarChan 2

Actually, I was homeschooled. And my parents aren't like that. They don't care as long as they know I'm safe. xD FYL

Ugh...lay off homeschoolers. My mother homeschooled me K-12, and her advice to the OPs parents would be to let the poor guy make his own choices now that he's an adult. The same thing she wants to smack into the head of her twin sister, whose daughter is a public high school drop out, who sleeps around and keeps having more kids she can't afford to take care of. I'm a college graduate, and while I still live at home, I'm not causing my mother any grief beyond an occasional spat with my teenaged sister. There are some homeschoolers that do take the sheltering a bit far...but I've known those who send their kids to public and private schools that do they same thing. Maybe even more so, and possibly for good reason; after all, they may have less knowledge of who their kids are hanging out with.

so you spent your ten computer minutes to write an fml? that's kind of fml worthy in itself.....

ROFL I never would've thought of that. Niice.

That's exactly what I thought.

hahaha. so true. you don't need on the Internet then anyway. From what you wrote, I really think you left something out. What are you NOT telling us?

Wow, it would take you 10 minutes to type something like that?

TheBrunetteDevil 0

niiice! but seriously...7 minutes...? O.o

Helldemon 32

Not a whole lot you can do with only 10 minutes though.

Sounds like something my damn parents would do. I'm 19. I know the feeling all too well.

Jmido 0

did they spank you as well? tell your parents to suck it and do whatever the hell you want.

I hope you're going away for college! That's horrible.
