They shouldn't expect much from us, here are times parents realized their kids were utter morons.

    Text - silentvoice1989930 points 5 hours ago Was playing with gasoline and caught my pants on fire. My parents are from Eastern Europe and my dad does not spare the rod. So, there I am with 1st-3rd degree burns on my left leg and about a hour passed since the initial incident happened before I even thought about telling him. Adrenaline, is one hell of compensatory mechanism

    Text - Swegpai 11.9k points 5 hours ago I thought it was a good idea to play with some candles while having a LOTR marathon. Turns out that was a bad idea because I ended up getting distracted and set the family couch on fire. I frantically put it out and threw a blanket over it. I didn't leave that couch for a week.

    Text - cricket9818 10.6k points 6 hours ago So we live in a two story colonial. My parents away on vacation I'm in the yard and tossing a baseball up in the air and catching it, just a 9 year old entertaining myself. I think to myself, "hey let's loft it onto the first split level roof and then it'll roll off and I'll catch it!" Second toss, CRASH, shatter sister's window. Grandma was babysitting. Grandma reported. I was smoked

    Text - Atlanticoast 680 points 4 hours ago I had just gotten my first ever job at ACE hardware and week in, my buddies hit me up asking if I wanted to head to the beach for next week and I was like "Yeah of course!" So I told my boss at work a family member died and I couldn't come in the next week. So my boss called my dad who also works for the owner of the company in a different department and starts telling him "I'm so sorry for your loss please let me know if I can do anything to help!" And

    Text - edited 41 minutes ago matty80 8.7k points 5 hours ago 2 I was sitting in my back garden with my best friend, and we'd recently acquired an air rifle. So obviously we started shooting it at things in an increasingly destructive manner (because we were 11) We shook up and banged out a can of Coke and then laughed as it went nuts spraying its contents everywhere. Then we got a can of deoderant and it was even MORE ridiculous because it basically went bang but in a relatively harmless way. Th

    Text - ugbaz 8.4k points 4 hours ago 17 years old, had a party while the parents were out of town. I had to work the next day, but timed it so I would have plenty of time to clean before they got home that evening. Came home from work, the sprinklers are on and their car is in the driveway. Drivinng down my driveway I was anxiety and fear personified. I walk in the house and my mom tells me, "Your dad had to leave before you got here otherwise he was afraid of what he might do to you."

    Text - 4 hours ago warriorgramma 258 points When I was 6, I spilled grape juice on the tan carpet in the living room. I put a pillow over it, laid on the pillow, and vowed that I would stay there the rest of my life so my parents would never find out. I lasted about 45 minutes. My mom was more upset that I got grape juice on the pillow, rather than the carpet.

    Text - Joshtice 21.6k points 6 hours ago Me and a few buddies got arrested for some very foolish and regrettable criminal mischief. We managed to keep it from our parents by getting to the mailbox first to destroy court notices and targeted letters from lawyers. We thought we were in the clear too, until the newspaper article with our names in it came out...

    Text - therachelgoody 18.7k points 6 hours ago One time I snuck out of the house, and when I went to sneak back in the door was locked. We NEVER locked the doors to the house, so I knew I'd been caught. Lived on a farm so I just went up to the hay loft to sleep the rest of the night.

    Text - cardboardshrimp 16.4k points 5 hours ago I skipped school by leaving the house, climbing on the garage and waiting for my mum to leave. I jumped down to let myself in as she drove off and set myself up for a day on my PS1. She then came back as she'd forgotten something and I wanted to die in a hole. The yelling was something to behold. Didn't do that again!

    Text - BirdInASuit 16.2k points 4 hours agoS There was a small lizard trapped in our garage under a pile of wood so I moved some of them so it could get out. I must have accidentally knocked over a larger plank in the process, that landed on my dad's car and went straight through the windshield. Lizard was fine though

    Text - 091 13.8k points 6 hours ago edited 9 minutes ago nem I was 10 years old, only pretending to drive a car with my friend in the back seat. I knew not to touch the ignition or the gear box. So the car is parked on an incline. I lowered the handbrake and the car starts to roll backwards, moving steadily and with increasing momentum towards a concrete wall. Thankfully I knew which one the brake was. So I pressed down on it with all my might and told my friend to get out of the car and call my

    Text - NYankee1927 472 points 4 hours ago Getting pulled over by 3 police cars for doing 70 in a 45. My dad happened to call as I was talking with the officers. They asked to speak with him. After a few min they handed the phone back and said "you better go home, that is going to be worse than the ticket we are giving you" that was a whole lot of yelling at home.

Was a thrill, I came back, parked, left the keys in the same drawer he left them in Monday arrives, I come back from school and my dad asks me to come look at the car, with a death glare. I had forgot to pull the seat back after adjusting them for my 14 year old legs

    Text - Mason110417 2.7k points 4 hours ago I snuck out and took the car when I was 16 before I had license to drive at night. I hit a pot hole and blew a tire. I rode around on a shredded tire for 2-3 minutes before I drove up on a guy smoking a cigarette in his driveway. He helped me change it. The next morning my parents woke up early and were going to take the car somewhere and the spare was still on. Luckily this was right when the Goodyear or Firestone tires were all blowing out and I told
