Today, my mom demanded that I go into the basement and fix the water heater. I told her that I had no idea how to fix it, so she threw my phone down the stairs, told me to Google it, and locked the basement door behind me. It's been two hours. FML

1. That's messed up 2. Google how to escape

Some parents... how the fuck are you supposed to know the problem? how in the blue hell are you supposed to fix it? She wants to turn you into an emergency plumber?.. wickedness. At least did she give you a 3D printer to print out the required tools?

I think I've read a book about crazy mums like this.

Yeah " Mommy Dearest".

"NO WIRE HANGERS!!!!"

whats crazy is he has a phone with Internet and hasnt yet called a repair man. . . that would have been my first move

112, why? so their mom can force them to pay for it?

The child called IT

It puts the lotion on its skin, or else it gets the hose again!

Oh that's awful! I hope you're ok Op!

That is awful. I'm thankful I've never had to deal with things like that. I mean we weren't the Brady bunch but never had to deal with that. We don't realize what other have to go through behind closed doors.

It would still take days to print the tools lol

Kind of reminds me of when I was an undergrad in engineering. Every time something was broken, everyone said " you're the engineer, you fix it." Yeah, my first class was oven repair 101.

You are not the handyman and that's who she needs to call because of you don't fix it right then she's just going to get mad at you. good luck OP

That sucks, hopefully she'll be reasonable soon. If not, maybe you could try calling someone who does know how to fix the hot water heater. Good luck!

My thought was that he should call someone to get him out of the basement first

like the police, fire dep., seach and rescue team or dial random number and whisp "heelp my mom locked me in the basement" just some suggestions :)

Sounds like she needs to cool down a bit instead...

Take the hinges off and throw the door down the stairs

Should have just done it instead of saying you couldn't.

Yeah because everybody in the world can fix a water heater, I guess you can do it too, right? -.-

You know there is usually a reason why people say they can't do things. It's because they can't. Just fixing the water heater won't work because he knows nothing about it. They'll probably end up making the problem worse rather than fixing it

She sounds like a super b*tch
