Teens Drug Parents with Laced Milkshakes to Avoid Internet Curfew

laced milkshake

What is wrong with the teens in Rocklin, California? Better yet, what are they doing on the Internet that is so important that they would do anything, even drug someone to be able to get on the computer?

We are all aware that teens do some crazy stuff. I blame the hormones and lack of life wisdom but one girl in Rocklin, California has just jumped ship and landed straight on a runaway train to crazy town. Two teens, one 15 and the other 16-years-old, were at the home of one of the girls. The girls made a very uncharacteristic move and offered to go get milkshakes for the parents. Awwwww, how sweet! Right? Wrong! Parents should know that teens usually don’t do anything without an ulterior motive. Come on, trusting two self-absorbed teens that offer to go buy Mommy and Daddy a milkshake?

That’s a rookie mistake. Never trust a teen with a milkshake. Isn’t that on page three in the What to Expect when You’re Raising a Teen book?

The girls offered to get the milkshakes because they had every intention of spiking it with a prescription sleep aid and giving it to the parents, causing the parents to knock out so they could use the computer to their hearts desire after the parents imposed 10 pm computer curfew.

It seems a bit Scooby Doo-ish and immature to me but it worked and they would have gotten away with it too if it weren’t for those pesky parents who woke up with a sleeping pill hangover, hit the nearest police station, took a drug test and foiled their daughter and her sidekick’s plan. It would almost be funny if it weren’t so dangerous and, oh yeah, maybe a felony. Too bad about that chalky residue taste the parents faintly remembered tasting before they dropped off into lala land. Thankfully the girls didn’t crush up too many sleeping pills and put into the milkshakes or this could have been a lot less Scooby Doo-ish and a lot more Menendez brother-ish.

I don’t know what was so important on that computer but I am foreseeing no electronics, iPhones, computers, mp3 players, friends or light of day in these two little criminals’ future. Hell, drugging your parents? I’m pretty sure that is a get out of paying for college free card. Do not pass go. Go straight to jail.

The girls are minors so they will be remanded to the juvenile courts. Unfortunately, the relationship and trust between parents and child will probably not so easily be repaired.

Do you think this is a case of teenagers using bad judgment or malicious intent?

    Addicts will be addicts. Not only are teens addicted to technology, but a fair amount of them have no common sense. The mix has the potential to be fetal. It easily could have been here. Did they intend to be malicious? Probably not. Did they think AT ALL about what could have happened? Probably not. Addiction is dangerous.

    Sure, they really messed up, should go to jail and the whole whatever. But I hate the way this article was written. I was a model teen until I turned 19, then I just up and left. I loved (and still love) my parents. I had no ulterior motives, thank you very much.

    malicious intent!!! Ive done some bad things when i was a teen, sneaking out at night and going walking down the road toa boys house or a friends, drinking a beer that a friend was able to sneak past from their parents, tried weed once. NORMAL teen things! But i never thought about drugging my mother! The worst i ever did to her was locking my door and piling my dresser and scooting my bed infront of the door so she couldnt stop me from using my computer. I was wrong though, for she went and flipped the breaker to my room, and left it orf all night. Did i forget to mention the breaker box had a pad lock on it that only she had a key too?

  4. HA. MALICIOUS INTENT! if you ask me. These girls are darn near old enough to move out. Or should i say this is the age teens are screaming "I’M GROWN". They knew what they were doing. They should be locked up and shown some disciplinary actions. If not, i sure can’t wait to see them on first 48 or COPs

    And unfortunately, it seems like these girls are on their way to being the kind of of girls that gets their criminal boyfriends to kill their parents.

    Believe it or not, there are teenagers that love and respect their parents, and actually would do something nice for their parents without an ulterior motive. Others would do something nice in order to get favor (a later curfew, special allowance, etc.) I doubt my child would ever think to do something so malicious, but if she did, if she thought her life sucked before doing something like this, she would have no doubt about her life sucking after she did something like this.

    This country, especially kids and teens, are obsessed and dependant upon today’s technology, it is really sad..

  8. I think that these teens ARE malicious, whether or not they meant to be. Your parents impose rules because that’s what they are there to do. Until you are an adult, they are in charge. What were they thinking?!
