"Hello, this is your son calling on behalf of the I'm-screwed-over fund..."
Your parents sound like they're not very good at being parents. I feel sorry for you.
It could have been an honest mistake, but it doesn't read like it to me. If OP is still underage, which I'm assuming here since they live at home, then his/her parents should be more concerned. Parents shouldn't just go out of town and then ignore eight hours worth of phone calls. That's a lot of time, and lot of calling. They should be more concerned than that, because something could be wrong. Forgetting to update OP on the change in passcode is forgivable, but not ignoring the calls. It seems very dismissive of them, at least to me.
#17 it doesn't says anywhere that Op lives with them 24/7.... It could be he came to visit his parents and they went out somewhere on a trip and didn't need to tell password to Op then. & about 8 hr phone calls, donno about anyone else but my family don't receive any business calls on family time as well, even if its for week or two. -_-
You're parents really thought that "hello this is Officer_____ is *your name* really your son?" was a telemarketer?
Either their phones were dead, you didn't leave a message, or they straight up ignored you because of whatever reason. Either way you look at it, fyl.
They should have realized that a telemarketer would not continue to call for 8 hours...
