You should never run away or fake run away unless you have the worst parents in the world.
56, No, that means that you're a spoiled brat. Parents: "Happy Birthday." Kid: "An iPhone, thank you so much, wait, this isn't the iPhone 5, this is the iPhone 4S, I TOLD YOU I WANTED THE IPHONE 5, I HATE YOU, I'M RUNNING AWAY FROM YOU FOREVER AND NEVER COMING BACK." See how stupid you'd sound if you ran away just because you didn't get what you wanted?
I hadn't thought about that, good point... But some people really are so self-absorbed that they think they're completely justified. It can just as well be one or the other. I wanted to run away from my house a few times so i can't say i was more mature as a child but I had an alcoholic father and a mother with dementia so I'd like to think my feelings were at least partially justified then XD
160 - FMLs are rarely written during the actual event. Usually, they're written afterwards and put in the present tense to match up with the "Today..." format. He likely submitted it a while after admitting defeat and slinking back in the door with his tail between his legs.
Never, ever make such a threat unless you're prepared to go through with it. Clearly, you weren't prepared.
Maybe their worst punishment is you staying, therefore you should make your way back inside (:
People like you are the reason why we can't have nice things. I'm guessing you've done this before and your parents know you're an attention seeker. Luckily, they are wise enough not to give you the attention. YDI all over.
And what happens when they find you behind the bush? What will you say then? YDI, everyone's parents piss them off but running away is a little extreme.
Wow OP, way to pussy out. I'm sure your parents know that you're behind the bush and are in fact teaching YOU the lesson.
You idiot, give your parents some credit. They clearly know you are just attention seeking, which you have proven by hiding behind the bush! Typical 'look at me' teenage behaviour!
