“Dear Aunt Edith,
I really wanted an Instagram account, but my mom said no. So, I did it myself. My mom found out and I was grounded. She canceled it. I’m so mad, but when I try to explain myself, she just gets this “I’m so disappointed in you look,” and I’m all “ya woman like whateva.” Well, in my head.
Now how will I get an Instagram?”
YOU ARE GROUNDED. HOWEVER YOUR PARENTS INTERPRET GROUNDING, FOLLOW THE RULES. YOU WILL NEVER GET AN ACCOUNT IF YOU BREAK THEM.
Okay, now that we have that cleared up:
– Apologize for setting up an account
– Apologize for breaking the rules
– Ask her why you’re not allowed to get one
– Ask her the way you can prove you can get one
Don’t worry, you can get one when you’re eighteen. Ask for it for your birthday each year.
P.S. Respect her when you talk to her.
