If the kid’s rants were even half accurate, I completely side with her. For a 15 year old to have to come home and do the following really is crazy:
"If you want coffee, get off your ass and get it yourself. If you want a garden, shovel the fertiliser yourself, don’t sit back on your ass and watch me do it. If you walk in the house and get mud all over the floor that I just cleaned, be my guest, but clean it up after you are done getting s**t everywhere.
I’m tired of picking up after you. You tell me at least once a day that I need to get a job. You could just pay me for all the s**t that I do around the house. Every day when I get home from school, I have to do dishes, clean the counter tops, all the floors, make all the beds, do the laundry and get the trash. I’m not even going to mention all the work I do around your clinic.
And if I don’t do all that every day, I get grounded. Do you know how hard it is to keep up with chores and schoolwork? It’s freaking crazy."
And she mentions that they already have a cleaning lady!
Sure, teach the kid some responsibility and hard work, but even Cinderella wasn’t worked this much by her evil stepmother. And I’d be pissed too if I cleaned the floors and then someone tracks mud onto them.
Also, I don’t know where they live, but it must be fine with child labor if any 15 year old can get a job. If she does, the dad would probably complain about having to drive her to work.
And getting up at 5am and going to bed at 10pm? That’s freaking tiring. It leaves you only 7 hours for sleep and most professionals recommend at least 8 or 9 for kids. If the kid got up at a normal time, 7am, she’d essentially be going to bed at midnight. This dickhead probably thinks that kind of curfew is too late and would make her to to bed earlier
Who makes their kid bring them coffee anyway? Are they teaching her to be a maid? And I can understand watering the plants, but shoveling fertilizer too? Add to that dishes, laundry, counter tops, bed, floors, and trash, not to mention the unmentioned stuff around their “clinic”?
The parents are lazy as shit. They should just go to a third world and buy a slave if that’s what they want. The kid definitely has a right to rant and if it were me, knowing how rebellious I was, I would have retaliated by throwing a hammer into the dad’s computer while he was using it
