I know i’m not BU, but mum and dad are making such a big deal of this that I need opinions. AIBU to hitchhike 400 miles to see Nirvana in concert? I can study for exams when I get back. Mum and dad said they would pay for me to take the coach but that takes all the fun out of it. I never know who I will meet hitching and sometimes my rides give me drugs. And AIBU to sleep in a hedge outside the concert venue? I want to save my money for booze and pills, not waste it on accomodation

Glad it all worked out for you. Positive risk taking. Well done. And your point is?

HopefullyAnonymous · 25/09/2018 21:57

YANBU and your parents are sooooo boring!

AIBU to want to spend all night on MSN messenger, changing my username and logging in and out so my name pops up so the boy I like sees it? DM keeps asking me to switch it off because she needs to use the telephone

ALemonyPea · 25/09/2018 21:59

AIBU for not wanting to hang out with my friends anymore and dedicate all my time with my one true love?

Butcowsdontgetmarried · 25/09/2018 22:17

AIBU for thinking of travelling across the country to London for a gig is fine, the gig finishes and pubs closed we around 11-12 and I can get the 6am train home so I can kill time at Leicester Square all night Marcy d’s or doing “London by night” getting random night buses. I’m 15 and my mate is too.

AIBU to hitchhike to France and go grape picking for the summer? I’ve got £100 to last me for 3 months
I’ve done my O levels and will come back in time for September and sixth form
(It was 1980 and yes my parents did let me - had to ring home from a call box once a week though!!!!!!)

mishfish · 25/09/2018 22:30

OMFG at least your parents let you do things. AIBU to get pissed off that my parents make me come home at 22:30 at night to hopefully prevent me from getting pissed, stoned and clumsily fondled in a random field with a bunch of other 15 year olds? Ffs so unfair. They won’t let me get my nose pierced either. I just went to express myself. I’m going to get so many tattoos when I’m 18 Angry

BertieBotts · 25/09/2018 22:35

AIBU to move into the cupboard under the stairs? My little sister is soooooo annoying and it could be quite cosy in there, plus I could pretend to be Harry Potter.

darkriver198868 · 25/09/2018 23:09

Aibu to tell my mum to f off! She just doesn't get the reason I have gone off the rails . She wouldn't believe me if I told her.

recklessruby · 25/09/2018 23:38

Aibu to tell the old cow head of year to fuck right off telling me to wipe off my eyeliner when I ve just got it perfect and now I ve been sent home to wash the lovely purple colour out of my hair. It's permanent you dumb bitch!!!
Then I moan to my mother and she starts stressing about exams and why can't I just follow the rules and my hair was a lovely blonde colour before and I was such a pretty girl why do I wanna ruin my looks and be so weird?
Arrrrggghhhh nobody fucking understands meSad

Sweepouttheashes · 26/09/2018 01:04

Omg none of you are U at all. Aibu to beg my parents to let me move out of home at 15? I just want my own space. I will totally keep going to school!

My parents just paid for ANOTHER week abroad in the summer hols,aibu to want to just doss out with my loser mates?

And whilst I'm at it my parents are now calling me. Kevin! Aibu?

Thighofrelief · 26/09/2018 01:10

OMG! My rents are sooo cray cray. Right so I got them to drive me 2 hours there and 2 hours back to an AC/DC concert OK and they just keep barging into my room to turn the music down. Like Helloooo - i can't hear due to the fucking concert. It's hardly my fault is it?

Thighofrelief · 26/09/2018 01:13

And another thing they've been doing to me, this is well bad. They keep moaning and moaning and wanking on about cleaning my room? WTAF! They don't respect me or my space.

Thighofrelief · 26/09/2018 01:21

I think I need to call Childline. My mum is such a shit cook, i swear it's dog food and I said at "dinner" today "ugh, dog food again" she said "well what do you want?" so i told her "steak" ...simples. Then I walked in to the kitchen and heard my mum say "if she says dog food one more time I'm going to stab her" then dad (traitor) said "just hang in there she's off to university soon" i mean WTAF!!!!

Dear Readers, the above is a true story.

Rebecca36 · 26/09/2018 01:50

You are being unreasonable because Nirvana are dead, aren't they? Or one of them is.

Am I being unreasonable to want to hitch to Cornwall, sleep in a derelict house or a beach hut, sit up late at night on the beach with a load of others singing and then skinny dipping? Only for a couple of weeks and I am fifteen!

Daytimetvsucks · 26/09/2018 01:56

AIBU to trick my (now DH) into going out with me by reading the sports section of the paper and pretending I'm dead into football? He'll never know right?!!

(Wrong-he knew all along but thought it was sweet 😳)

AbsentmindedWoman · 26/09/2018 02:31

These are so funny Grin

Thighofrelief · 26/09/2018 02:46

OP - ofc YANBU. I mean you're 15 right, not 5! It's not like the rents actually dooooo anything for you.

Thighofrelief · 26/09/2018 02:52

Delphguelf - OMG YANBU! Is it a booooring villa in Tuscany? FGS why don't you tell them just to give you your share and you can backpack to Koh Samui without those fun sponges.

AndNoneForGretchenWieners · 26/09/2018 02:53

AIBU to kill my little sister for being a grass? She saw me kissing a boy who gave me a lift home, and told my parents, who grounded me because he is apparently too old for me and unsuitable. I hate her. She is ruining my life!

Also I know IANBU because it is destiny, but my parents are refusing to let me move to Glasgow to be nearer to Marti Pellow. We are definitely going to be together forever but it won't happen until we meet. I'm nearly 16 so will be legally able to get married in Scotland


buttfacedmiscreant · 26/09/2018 03:03

AIBU to tell my mother that I've lived away at college and know how to cook and wash up and if she wants me to do the washing up during the hols she should stop nagging me and telling me how to do it or she should just do it herself? The dishes are clean, who fucking cares which way up they are on the draining rack? FFS. Its not like I'm 11, I've had my own place for a year now. If she wants to argue she can do it to a brick wall, I'm going out and she can't stop me.

Also a middle-aged woman shouldn't be telling a college kid what is fashionable. FFS.

Sweepouttheashes · 26/09/2018 03:17

@rebecca36 they were alive and together in 1992, which is when I wanted to hitch up to see them. In the end I let my parents quell me, but still wish I had taken off without telling them!

@thighofrelief my bf says parents are just robots who feed you, sooo true. @buttfacedmiscreant my mum wants me to do household chore to and she is BVVU. She can clean it herself if she wants it tidy!

Also I have picked up scabies from dossing in my mates van on weekends, AIBU to treat it with thyme oil? The local Wiccan shop says it will work. Mum wants me to use Lyban but she is just a victim of the military imdustrial complex. I’m not covering myself with those nasty chemicals, i’m going to say I told you so to mum when the thyme oil works. I don’t mind smelling like pizza Smile

^^fuck the 90s were awful!

WTF AIBU? All I did was cry at the end of my parents bed one evening (well it may have been 1 am) because I was worried about getting older and them copping it and having to live on my own in the world with Trump as leader and I luffs them really really bad and it wasn't so bad being a kid.

Thought they might have the decency to understand the next morning when they made me get up for school and all I said was that I hated them and wanted a lie in and they were right out of order and all my friends parents would have let them have a mental stress day yeah and I really really can't wait until I have my own flat and car in five years so I don't have to put up with them anymore and I can get as far away as possible cos they're evil.
