When eBay seller k_lid found his fifteen-year-old son Isaac smoking marijuana on the patio with two of his "delinquent friends," he did what any respectable parent would do: he calmly removed his son's copy of Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock
from beneath the Christmas tree, and put it up for sale on eBay, complete with a lengthy description about why
it was being auctioned.
With the listing underway, all that was left to do was show the auction page to Isaac, who apparently "was not amused" by the sight of his number one Christmas present going on sale. Funny, that.
But kudos to k_lid, we say. That's a pretty calculating, imaginative punishment, and there's nothing wrong with a bit of tough love
. Didn't do us any harm. Apart from the panic attacks. And the nightmares. And the endless twitching.
