Quite frankly, though I would not do it in such a public way, I wish more parents had the balls to stand up to their disrespectful, entitled children. So BRAVO dad, bravo.

@KatyElle:  yeah, I wouldn’t have wanted to make it public because of potential backlash, but yeah, my dad totally would have done that.

omg, now I’m actually watching it. What a spoiled, entitled little bitch. If I had dared to write something like that about my parents (and I couldn’t have, we didn’t get internet til I was almost 18), I wouldn’t be alive to post this comment.

For cripe’s sakes, my chores weren’t fricking dishes – I wish! We ran a dairy farm – I calculated it out once, and I put in 35 hours a week, in addition to chores, and I rarely got paid. I did get a raise whenever I wanted one – $0+$0 is still $0.

Wow, they talked about this on the radio this morning and one person said their dad would have made them shoot the computer themselves.

I probably wouldn’t have done it so publicly myself, but I love that he did. Good for him for not taking her entitled shit… and since there were purpotedly no other people around (seems like he’s on a bit of open land out there) I don’t have a problem with him putting 7 rounds in that computer either.

@hisgoosiegirl:  I love that he clarifies that “doing the dishes” is putting them in the dish washer.

I think he’s doing a great job. He stated in the video that this is the second time she’s done this and he told her what would happen if she did it again. Bravo.

@Aure:  oh my God, that’s ridiculous, 4 minutes max to do that. I’d make her handwash for a month for that.

I think it’s great he isn’t going to let his daughter disrespect him, his wife, or his daughter’s mother like that on the internet…but I disagree with shooting the computer with a gun and making a video of it. I don’t really think his daughter will learn anything from it. In my opinion I think it would have been better to make her donate the computer to a women’s shelter or something so she can really get a good idea how easy she really has it! Make her donate her stuff and spend time volunteering. Don’t shoot a perfectly good computer to prove a point.

@Eva Peron:  lol, I sound a little bit like a martyr – but my parents were big on wanting you to work hard for what you got. They did pay for me to go to a local high school (we were homeschooled) so I could take choir, I got two nice prom dresses, use of their van, and they did help with college. So I was rewarded – but I was always thankful for that.

And it sounds like this girl is getting non-cash ‘bonuses’ as well – the laptop, the time he spent updating it, a phone – she’s not a ‘slave’ even the tiniest bit remotely.

I think what he did was great.  The fact that he called her out in a public way is fitting because she did the same to them.  Plus, she was warned about doing something similar a while back so she should have known better.  And the best part, to me, is that he works in IT and was all “did you really think I couldn’t find a way to see this?”.  haha!  Go Dad!  I think a lot of kids feel so entitled these days and what the Dad did was absolutely justified.

I can’t stop laughing. That kid is ridiculous. So she has to do a few chores? Big deal. She should be doing something around the house. Her dad is right, she needs to get a JOB. I got my first job at the age of 11 and I’ve been working ever since. I know the value of a dollar, I bet she doesn’t!

Good for the dad for doing this. She may hate him for a while, but she should start to respect him.
