.........and not only born yesterday, also born fully adult and therefore have never been a teen yourself??
they think they have all the tricks and excuses, and that we are that gulliable that we just take what they say as truth!
DD1 and DD2 are out together, with a friend each, and are still not home even tho they are to be back before 6ish. (obviously the 'ish' tho will give them premission to push it until 7)
we did give them money for food out, and they are not far (we live 10mins walk max from a huge shopping centre, and in fact, it is just one long road away).
we have been ringing them both to find out where they are. we are not overly concerned or even that cross TBH, as they may have gone to DD1's friend on the way back and she is just around the corner.
neither of them have answered their phones tho. DD2's has just been found on the coffee table at home, explaining hers, and DD1 we know keeps switching her's to silent for school and then forgetting, BUT, she claims she checks it regularly.
she has just rung us however, and has given many excuses as to why she has not answered, or rung back.....
does she really think I am believing her???
I was once a teen too you know. I know I was pre-mobiles, but I remember telling similar mis-truths as to where I was and why I was late, but she seems to think that I am so easy to take in.
I know that this is teens the world over, but seriously, it is getting tiresome. I am not that old you know that I forget what it was like!!!
The mobile being ignored or not heard gets right on my wick! Amazing isn't it, how when they are at home, it's constantly ringing or buzzing, but as soon as you try to contact them, they can't hear it!
