Some parents just can't seem to help but snoop in their teens' rooms. Even though it's a total violation of privacy, certain nosy moms and dads just can't resist finding out what their kids are hiding from them. Whether it's going through their bedroom drawers, reading their diaries, or scrolling through their phones, you never know what you'll find sneaking and creeping through your kid's stuff.
Reddit user u/Beginnney1 was fed up with her stepmom's constant snooping. So much so that she and her stepsister came up with an elaborate plan to make her think the absolute worst. They got 'grounded indefinitely' for their trolling, but was it worth it?
It was my step-sister's idea.
My mum is in prison and my stepmother believes I'm just like her and I'm a dangerous person and I'm up to no good. She always says there's something wrong with me and has been trying to find an excuse to have me live with my grandparents ever since she's been in my life.
This is very obvious to me and my step sister but my dad doesn't see it. We decided that instead of me trying to convince her that I'm a good person (I've tried and failed), we can mess with her a little.
She's super nosy about me and always snoops around my room and stuff. She thinks I don't know but she's not good at it at all. So we decided to leave strange stuff for her to find. These are the things that we did:
We bought a box with a lock, put fake animal bones inside and locked it and hid the key somewhere else in my room knowing that she will find it.
We bought a fake pee powder that you add to water and it makes it look and smell like pee. I filled these up one every couple of days and left them under my bed. Then one day my step sister and I went and buried the bottles in our garden.
Then a few days later my step-sister told her mum that she saw me go out to the garden in the middle of the night and bury something in the garden. She found the bottles. We got tiny plastic bags and filled them up with plaster to make it look like it's drugs. I left them between my books.
We carved out an empty place in the middle of a bible (that she insisted I have in my room, even though she's not religious), like they do in the movies in prisons, and put in some of my step sister's hair in there (she brought them back when she returned from the hairdresser). I placed the bible so that she notices there was something wrong with it.
I bought fake blood, put them into two tiny bottles, wrote my step-sister and my dad's name on them and left them inside an envelope without a mailing address but left them in my drawer for her to find, thinking I'm planning to mail these to someone.
That's all. This was enough for her to bring all the evidence and present them to my dad and grandparents (dad's parents) to prove that I'm dangerous and shouldn't live there and her daughter is in danger here with me.
My sister and I couldn't hold our laughter so we confessed that we've been messing with her all along, grandparents found it very funny but she didn't. And she said we humiliated her. We're both grounded indefinitely. But AITA here for messing with the person who believes I'm dangerous for no reason?
OK, this was straight-up hilarious. The idea, the execution, the attention to detail, this prank has it all. Yes, this girl and her sister are a**holes, but in the best possible way. The creative plan to nail her snooping stepmom may have got her grounded for life, but the look on her stepmom's face when she found the (fake) blood, bones, hair, and pee had to have been worth it. She's lucky to have such a cool stepsister/partner in crime since her parental figures all seem to suck.
Reddit agrees, these hilarious trolling teens are 'NTA.' What do you think of their elaborate prank?
NTA 100%. She deserved that, well done. Your stepmother sounds unhinged.
NTA, she had it coming. Plus the entire thing is epic. Good job!
NTA. Well you are an AH, but my kind of AH. Also, step-sis is great for having your back even though she’s biologically related to your warden
Justified YTA because wow she had that coming. And she's the biggest asshole in the situation. Then your dad, for not listening to you and your sister. Fucking hilarious, 10/10.
The part with the bones in the box and hiding the key (to make it a little treasure hunt was my favorite. Total NTA.
Nta or maybe justifiable ah. Your stepmother is a witch. It's not fair to assume you'll turn out bad just bc your mom is in prison.
Truthfully she just wants you gone and is using this to justify it. If she was actually concerned you'd go down the wrong path she would be doing everything she could to support you and guide you towards making better choices than your mom. Not villianizing you without cause. I'm glad you at least have your step sister on your side
I can't stop laughing, this is incredible and I applaud the creativity. NTA
NTA sounds like you and your step-sister have a great relationship despite step-mom. I hope your dad's eyes were opened
NTA. I like how you both think. This was hilarious to read, I can't imagine to live it!!! You two were very creative. You seem to have a beautiful bond with your stepsister. So sweet!
NTA. I don't think I've ever laughed at an AITA post before. Brilliant.
