SO gets a phone call from his 14 year old daughter's science teacher that he took away her phone and she gave him attitude about it. This happens constantly, but with the start of the new semester, they start back with a clean slate and just get a warning. Next time, a parent will have to go to the school to pick up the phone. I've been pretty close to completely disengaged, but he felt the need to share his text conversation with her:
SO: did you get your phone back?
SO: I guess you got your phone back.
SD14? What? I've had my phone all day.
SO: So why did your science teacher call me and say he had to take it away?
SD14: Oh yeah, that.
SO: And he said you gave him an attitude when he took it.
SD14: Just stop.
SO: No, I'm not going to stop - I'm the parent.
SD14: You only talk to me when it's something bad. You're never here for me when I do something good.
SO: Don't give me that crap... I've been trying for 2 months to see you so you can get your Christmas and birthday presents, and you blow me off every time to be with your friends.
SD14: Oh. Sorry.
