Truck For Sale, With A Twist

One of the hardest jobs for any parent is figuring out how to punish their kid when they do something wrong–especially when the kid is entering the rebellious teenage years. This Minnesota mom gets points for punishment creativity, at least. She refers to herself as “The world’s meanest Mom,” and in this story she lives up to that moniker.

Amy Adams, (not the actress), is the mother of a 15-year-old daughter who, as Adams explained to WPXI repeatedly played hooky from school. As punishment, Adams sold her daughter’s truck, and in the Craigslist ad made it abundantly clear why the truck was for sale. From the ad:

“So, because I’m the World’s Meanest Mom, and my 15 year old daughter has decided that her grades don’t matter, that she can disrespect myself and her siblings on a daily basis, and that she has the right to skip school and run away from home, I currently have every teenage kid’s dream vehicle up for sale (because it’s titled in my name, I can do that, you see).”

That’s not all. For the right kind of buyer, Adams offered a discount:

“If the person driving the truck on a daily basis will be attending North Branch high school next year, you will get a $300 discount. Why? Because I AM the World’s Meanest Mom, and would love for her to be reminded every day next year of all of the mistakes she made…”

Ouch. Remind us never to cross her.
