Parents post One Direction tickets on eBay to punish daughter for lying

One Australian girl (and three of her supremely disappointed friends) are probably subtweeting their little thumbs off after her parents rescinded an offer to take the girls to a One Direction show because they allegedly caught the girls in a lie.

One Australian girl (and three of her supremely disappointed friends) are probably subtweeting their little thumbs off after her parents rescinded an offer to take the girls to a One Direction show because they allegedly caught the girls in a lie.

The description of an eBay auction item containing four tickets to an upcoming One Direction concert in Sydney details the punishment of a teenage girl who allegedly lied to her parents about having a sleepover so that they could go hang out at an older boy's house. An obvious [sic] throughout.

THIS AUCTION IS FOR ALL 4 ONE DIRECTION TICKETS IN SYDNEY OCTOBER 25th. You can thank my daughters self righteous and lippy attitude for their sale. See sweety? And you thought I was bluffing. I hope the scowl on your bitchy little friends faces when you tell them that your dad and i revoked the gift we were giving you all reminds you that your PARENTS are the ones that deserve love and respect more than anyone. And your silly little pack mentality of taking your parents for fools is one sadly mistaken. Anyhow. Your loss someone else's gain who deserves them! THE TICKETS ARE SEATED IN ROW O section 57. REMEMBER AUCTION IS FOR ALL 4 TICKETS and will be sent registered post

...OH YOUR FRIENDS THOUGHT THAT A FEW PRANKS CALLS WOULD PUT ME OFF SELLING THE GIFT WE BOUGHT FOR THEM for YOUR BIRTHDAY because YOU all LIED to us about sleep overs so you could hang like little trollops at an older guys HOUSE????? Pffft!! I find it HIGHLY amusing that you girls think you invented this stuff. Tricks like this on OUR parents is how HALF of you were conceived .....And why a lot of your friends DONT have an address to send that Fathers day card to!!! I'm not your friend. I'm your MOTHER. And I am here to give you the boundaries that YOU NEED to become a functional responsible adult. You may hate me now..... But I don't care. Its my job to raise a responsible adult..not nuture bad habits in my teen age child

Any parents who catch their teen lying and have the qualm to sell off One Direction tickets in 2013 are absolute saints. Though, maybe, we'd all feel more comfortable revering them for their efforts had they abstained from the name-calling and slut-shaming.

And, of course, there's the possibility that the eBay lister made it up and posted the message in an attempt to drive up the auction price. Though, most scalpers would probably post the tickets at a higher starting price than $1. [h/t Reddit]
