Today, I found out that my parents changed the code on our alarm system while they were out of town. The police could not verify I was their son, despite spending hours trying to get hold of them. They thought it was just another telemarketer. FML

Your parents sound like they're not very good at being parents. I feel sorry for you.

"Hello, this is your son calling on behalf of the I'm-screwed-over fund..."

"sorry we couldn't get to the phone, we really don't think anyone other than telemarketers would ever call, so we ignore everything"

#2's profile picture along with the comment reminded me of "hello, this is dog."

2's pic reminded me of the "ultimate dog tease" video. "aawww! Ya kiddin me..." "Nope, not kidding."

Even if he wanted to do that for whatever reason, OP is apparently incapable of 'breaking and entering.'

I feel like it was an honest mistake. OPs parent's could be out of town for business reasons or some alone time. Leaving their phones unattended.

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. -_-

25, op did say "our" alarm system. suggesting that he is in some way connected to the ownership of it. if he was "just visiting", he probably would of said "their" alarm system. besides, why would he "just visit" when they were out of town?

You're parents really thought that "hello this is Officer_____ is *your name* really your son?" was a telemarketer?

I feel the parents never picked up

I believe the OP is saying that the parents never picked up any of the calls during those 8 hours because they thought it was just a telemarketer phone raping them. I was really confused at first too.

#5 the parents never picked up hence OP spending hours trying to get a hold of them

A great set of parents you got there.

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.

... Or maybe it was because "they thought it was just another telemarketer" like OP stated in the FML. Just a thought

43, his points are still valid, as the proper protocol for avoiding telemarketer calls is to never charge your phone in the first place. Preemptive strike!

How would you think it's a telemarketer unless op didn't leave a message. I'm just saying there probably wasn't a message left.

They should have realized that a telemarketer would not continue to call for 8 hours...

The fact that the cops stayed in front of the house for 8 hours is equally shocking

I'm thinking they would have taken OP to the station.

I think now is the time to invest in a cell phone so they have a number they recognize!

Maybe this was their way of saying that's it's time for you to move out?
