Oh The Damage We are Finding after The Party Of The Century

March 22nd, 2008 at 12:19 pm

So, my B/F (aka Dad) came home last night after being gone for 3 weeks on business. The 18 y/o son (aka King Party) and the 15 y/o son (aka Prince Party) met us at the house. We had quite the talk with both of them.

Apparently, they had been cleaning all day and thought they did a good job. What they didn't know was that using furniture oil on the hardwood floors would make a bad situation worse. The floors are a MESS! They have to be cleaned again and waxed and buffed. Gah!

Things are turning up missing or broken every time we turn around. Small things like glassware, to big things like my cashmere blanket (it was a gift from my B/F this past Christmas - something I asked for. It is quite expensive, and the boys have no idea yet how upset I am), The carpet has burn holes and the whole carpet needs to be replaced. My robe is gone, the sprinkler heads are broken (cars drove over them), the pub table top had something very sticky on it and the boys scrubbed it until it was ruined, the coffee table, ditto. Both need to be refinished. Ummm, what else? Oh, hole in the wall where someone put a fist into it, a chair and ottoman needs to be recovered as there are burn holes in them, all the fabric covered furniture needs to be cleaned as they apparently had a baby oil wrestling match and then the kids sat on the furniture with oil all over themselves! (Sounds like a fun party, eh?)

Today, the B/F and I are off to price carpeting.

Stay tuned, I'm sure there's more to this story!

Glad To Have My B/F home :-) 7

    Wow, it just gets worse and worse. I hope the royal partiers will be forking over all the money to cover this.

    Oh the joy of raising young men! This incident will pass with lessons learned by all. I hope you and B/F not only hold them responsible for the physical clean-up labor but also the financial responsiblities. I found that holding my 20 y/o and a 16 y/o young men fiscally responsible for their mistakes make a lasting impression for their future.

    If possible, I'd also take them with you when looking for the stuff to be replaced, so they see there's a time investment, too! oy!

    Makes ya wish you could spank an 18 year old. Just kidding! Glad your man is back to deal with the situation.

    OK, I know this isn't funny, but BABY OIL WRESTLING MATCHES! You can't help but laugh when you think about that one. I'm going to have to ask my adult stepson if he and his buddies ever experienced those as teens....

    Baby oil wrestling matches ... with any luck somebody's got to have a cell phone video of that on their myspace page. Good for either blackmail or to make money selling that clip on iTunes. Smile FYI - Just trying to live up to my reputation for deviousness, according to BA. Big Grin

    B/F and I just got back from carpet shopping, and other errands. Looks like mid-cheapo Berber carpet to replace the carpet in the living room will run $2,400 with padding and installation. B/F told King Party the news and King Party insisted that we were buying too expensive of carpet because everyone he talked to said it would cost about $1,000. Isn't he cute??

    So, yah, the baby oil wrestling was a great idea. They put an inflatable pool the size of a king size bed on top of the king size bed and poured two cases (we found the empty bottles) of baby oil into it. They also had a stripper pole installed in the family room.

    So, this is what kids do today?? Wow! I went to a lot of parties in HS and College, but never like this one!!

  11. aevans1206 Says:

    A stripper pole? You mean they sell stripper poles and we can have access to them? I'm going out tonight to get myself one! By tomorrow, my living room will be equipped. Sheesh...Laughing...you should write a story about this. It's pretty amazingly outlandish and is perfect for fiction.

    So the guys weren't wrestling...it was the strippers? (I am so glad DH got snipped, I am so glad DH got snipped)

    This party is mostly the HS football players and other jocks, and the cheerleaders and generally the "popular" crowd. Apparently, the girls thought it would be fun to dance in front of the cute boys and wrestle in the baby oil. So, yah, it was the girls who came up with the idea and made it all happen. At least, that's what King Party tells us.

    I have been looking on YouTube to see if someone has posted a video. No such luck yet, but I'm looking!

    My dearest friend had a similar situation when she went on vaca and left her two sons home..she was finding surprises for months...I hope you have uncovered the worst of it..kids..ugh

  15. boomeyers Says:

    Stripper pole hunh? Glad my DH does'nt read this blog! He'd be getting ideas! Smile

  16. baselle Says:

    "...sell stripper poles..."

    Nah, I think they rented those. Probably from the same guy who would sell you the 1K astroturf... ahem, carpet.

  17. Broken Arrow Says:

    Well, on the bizarrely bright side, your boys must have racked up some seriously awesome Cool Points at school. (Seeing as how the damage is already done, I'm trying see things from their perspective.) At least, they better have considering how much all this damage is going to cost them.

    Ah, my teenage son probably would've like to do something like that too. However, I guess he'll have to wait until college because he fears my wrath... which I'm not sure why. Other than the damage and MAYBE the stripper pole, I wouldn't be opposed to it! Heck, I'd probably even help set one up and run things. I... would have to to make sure it wouldn't get out of line... which is probably also why he wouldn't want me involved. Dad is too anal and uncool. Big Grin There's no way, I

    By the way, as a guy, I whole-heartedly approve of installing stripper poles as a legitimate form of cardiovascular workout. Seriously! Pole dancing take a lot of acrobatics and fitness to do well. Why are you looking at me like that?
