>This chick is plum crazy. At 16, I wanted to get out of my parents house too, but there was no way I was stupid enough to think going to the West Bank was a good idea.
What the hell is wrong with these kids, today? What ever happened to running off to Hollywood to become famous? Not good enough! Let’s run off to a war torn country. I’m sure there’s lots of cool, fun people there.
Any parent who says that their 16 year old girl has never given them a problem is full of crap. Every 16 year old girl has at some point, driven her parents up the wall. That doesn’t mean she’s breaking laws or failing classes.
It would have been more truthful had her parents said, “She just gave us the usual moody crap that all teenage girls go through, but she’s good kid. We never thought she’d be dumb enough to run off to the freaking Middle East.”
