I seriously get the feeling I missed something somewhere along the line. With New Years Eve coming up, I figure now would be the perfect time to post this. When did parents decide it is okay for their children to have xxxxxx parties with a bunch of 14-16 YEAR OLDS getting ****xxxxx drunk then having to walk/drive/find some sorta way home? Seriously, when did this become okay? As an example, my girlfriend (who is 15--I'm 19) is going to a party at a friend's house on New Year's Eve. The guy is 18, he's gonna have a bunch of underage kids over, and provide them with enough alcohol to x***xxx near poison themselves, and his parents don't give a flying fiddler's xxxx. When did this become okay to let a bunch of 14 year old kids get ****xxxx drunk in your house? Okay, I know that was really more of a rant than anything else, but I know it's happening everywhere, and I know the parents are probably gonna xxxx off outta town as soon as the party starts....xxxxxx people...I tell you... I'm not saying I don't drink, and I'm not saying I didn't drink when I was younger, but I never got so drunk I damn nearl killed myself. My parents condoned it because I normally did it at home with them (Rum/Coke with my old man at Christmas time, Vodka on New Years) but xxxxxx....That's a far stretch than if my dad woulda said "Okay, here's the booze, have a ****xxxx of kids over, you all can get ****xxxxxx drunk, your mom and me are going to Sudbury for the night." Why do parents get the idea that this kinda **** is okay!?
