15 Lies You Definitely Told Your Parents As A Teenager

- Page 1


As I've grown up, and looked back at these lies I've told, I started to realize everyone tells the same lies to their parents. If that's the case, our parents definitely knew we were lying the whole time. It could also be that they were incredibly naive and believed we were the angels the hoped we'd be.

1. "I'm going to stay the night at my friends house."

Maybe you were going to your friends house, but you definitely weren't staying there.

2. "Report cards haven't come out yet."

This was a tricky one because you had to pray that they would eventually forget, or that they wouldn't call the school to ask why it's taking so long.

3. "The teacher said the homework was optional."

This was an everyday kind of lie and part of the reason why we hid our report cards.

4. "I don't know why the school called, I was definitely in class."

Going on to say that the teacher must have made a mistake, because you didn't talk much in class and you sat in a different seat then normal.

5. "My eyes are just red because I didn't get a good sleep last night."

Or they were just really dry, either worked. And oh yeah, that smell must be from a skunk outside.

6. "We're just friends."

"Moooom, I don't even look at him that way, ew." Meanwhile, you most definitely looked at him that way, and you just wanted your mom to give you some space.

7. "I'm pretty sure it's going to be an all girls party."

I don't know why this one always worked, because I don't think I ever went to an all girls party while I was in high school.

8. "I think I'm too sick to go to school today."

They definitely knew we weren't sick, but they would feel horrible if it turned out we were sick, and they forced us to go to school anyway.

9. "That's not a hickey, I just burned myself with my flat iron."

My friend tried this one and her mom took away her flat iron for a month for her obvious lie, (which is a big deal when you're 16.)

The Original Barbie Dream House Is Back And Our Inner Child Is Screaming With Joy

A lot of us grew up playing with our barbies. They were a way to explore the realms of our imagination and no matter what you think about Barbie's visual aesthetic, you've got to admit that being able to be creative with her story was pretty great for kids. Sure, her look has raised a lot of controversy, but the fact remains that a lot of us enjoyed playing with Barbies and had countless stories to go along with each one. I remember when I was a kid, one Christmas my parents brought my sister and I into the basement


They Told Us They Could Erase Pen, But It Turns Out Blue Erasers Have An Entirely Different Purpose

Going to class and using pen was a pretty confident move. What, you don't think you're going to make a mistake? I spell my own name wrong on a regular basis, how can you be so sure of yourself? Well, then came those blue erasers. The so-called pen erasers would help even those who are overconfident in their spelling abilities. In theory, they were supposed to remove the pen from your paper, or at least that's what we all thought. Instead, we would be left with torn paper and illegible notes. I was always terrified of writing in pen, so


20 Statements You Haven't Heard Since You Were A Kid That'll Flood Your Brain With Memories

Growing up, there are always phrases that are pretty specific to the time period. It's the same for every generation. There's always those statements that seem so relevant at the time, but looking back it feels ridiculous. Think about it, our parents didn't have flat screen TVs, a Nintendo, or the internet, those only became popular when we were kids. We are really lucky to have grown up in the time that we did, because we have gotten to experience the insanely fast technological advances that have been going on. Remember your first internet experience? You can probably still hear


There's A New MTV Clothing Line And We Can't Wait To Get Our Hands On It

Hands up if you spent your entire childhood glued to the TV watching all the videos on MTV. Pretty much all of you right? Perfect. Watching MTV was the best. You got to see all of the coolest music videos, which meant that you knew all the best songs, all the newest dance moves, and all the rad styles. As MTV evolved over the years, it kind of lost that magic that made it the go-to location for awesome music, and instead has turned into a reality TV station. Really the only reality show we wanted to watch was The
