Jeff beats his daughter . . .

Actually, what I mean to say is that I wish I beat my daughter and you’ll understand after this reading . . .

Thanksgiving night my daughter says to me, “Dad, the Wrentham Outlets open at midnight and Rachel is allowed to go, can I?” I didn’t see any harm in this and thought it would be a good idea.

Actually, Rachel wanted UGG boots and Tori told me that she needed to borrow money because Rachel couldn’t get money to go and she was said. So, stupid me falls for this and reached in my pocket and gave her all the cash I had which was $280. Tori then told me that Rachel didn’t need the money and that is when I should of said, “Ok . . . Give me my money back”, but no, mis manipulating Tori then said she had to start her Christmas shopping anyways. I fall for that . . .

So, Rachel needed UGG boots and Tori already has two pairs.

They get up there and there are 600 people waiting in line. Can you imagine? Think about how many moms were there waiting to get inside and get a pair of UGG’s for their daughters. So what would you do? Go to the end of the line and wait your turn right? That is what 99.9% of people would do, but not my daughter and she doesn’t understand why I am so upset about this.

My daughter and Ms. Rachel who by the way is a Christian and wants to go to Liberty College next year. I will have a talk with her about letting my daughter influence her negative behaviors . . . . Anyways, my daughter and Ms. Rachel decide to go to the front of the line and pretend they were going into the other store and when the door would open they would march right in front of the 600 nice people waiting in line. So, as my daughter is telling me this she doesn’t understand why I interrupted and questioned her morals and judgement.

By the way, people were complaining and asking to call security, my daughter almost got into a fight with three black girls because she stepped on their toes and wasn’t remoresful at all.

So, we are talking and she is telling me this whole story about how this isn’t a big deal and I am beyond belief listening. Rachel got her $180 pair of UGGS and Tori got the child size for $99. Wait, wasn’t this supposed to be Christmas Shopping money? Doesn’t she already have three pairs? WTF????

OK . . . So I am pissed that she is selfish, ignorant, spoiled, and by the way hasn’t worked for three weeks and thinks that seven hours a week is enough to get by. I DON”T THINK SO . . .

Here was Tori’s answers to her lack of morals . . . “Dad, I don’t have morals like you!” “Dad, it’s Christmas time and you gotta do what you gotta do to get what you want.”

OMG . . . I wanted to bad to kill her but instead of reacting I responded which means you just think before you act. Hence the TTTT (Take Time To Think).

Now, I know many of you are thinking that I should of made her take them back, that she is spoiled and that I am enabling her behaviors and part of you is right. However, there is much more to the story and the past that you don’t know . . .

Here is my question . . . Is this today’s teens? Is this who we are raising? Or is this just MY daughter?

Please have enough morals to think that cutting 600 people in line to get what you want is WRONG. By all means, I could afford to buy UGGS and the last thing I want is to take the opportunity away from a family looking to get a bargain and who had been standing in line for a long time.

Have some respect for people and you don’t have to cheat, lie, steal, and be disrespectful to get what you need. This is supposed to be the Christmas spirit.

Lastly, three pairs of UGG’s is a little too much . . . . OMG
