JUST JOKING

“Do you have any idea how lucky you are? I could have been a drug addict,” says private school girl to rebut any dispute with her parents

“You literally have no idea, you are so lucky.”

Tara Franks, of one of Sydney’s most prestigious schools in Sydney uses the line, “Mum, I could have been a drug addict” to rebut any criticism offered by her parents.

Mrs Franks, a 55 year old Lawyer comments, “It’s baffling. It could be anything – I say that I won’t buy her a car, I won’t let her go to a party, I won’t pay for a schoolies and she begins. It’s like she thinks that anyone who isn’t a drug addict deserves some kind of reward from their parents.”

Tara says, “Mum and Dad have had it so easy with me. Honestly, I go to school, I come home from school, I eat dinner, I got to bed, I pick everything off the floor the day the cleaner is coming. And when they say ‘no’ to tiny requests I make, it’s like they have no idea how good they have it. Imagine if I was on drugs!? Imagine, it’d be years of manipulation and torture for them. All I am asking for is a car!”

Does the name ring a bell? Tara’s sister Jessica was in the news recently, with her claim, “Too poor for Europe, too rich for Youth Allowance.”
