Most of us were taught to never take food from strangers. But we fully trust our family members and friends. We don’t think that they would ever have a reason to harm us, so our guards are usually down. That is unless we know we’ve ticked them off. In those instances, we may be a bit more leery in eating their home cooking, lol. One California couple maybe should have turned down the milkshakes their daughter brought home for them on December 28th. The gesture seemed innocent and thoughtful. An unnamed minor brought home a chocolate milkshake for her dad and a vanilla one for her mom. Fast forward an hour later and a few sips of the milkshake, the pair fell into unconsciousness and woke up a few hours later feeling like they had a hangover. So how could two milkshakes do all that damage?
Well, it turns out that the parents got suspicious and tested themselves with a drug kit used for teenagers to get to the bottom of everything. After what appeared to be drug like residue from the test appeared, they came to the conclusion that their daughter must have drugged them to get to stay online past her 10:00 pm. Lieutenant Lon Milka (what an appropriate last name) of the Rocklin Police Department stated that ”The milkshakes were really funny tasting and had a really gritty texture.” Wait, so did he drink these watered down milk shakes after they had sat for hours??? Eeesshh, but I digress. He went on to say that “…. a sign of good parenting, if your child does something very, very serious like this, is to actually let the child face the consequences.” And that’s an understatement. The teenager drugged her parents with sedatives, that they still felt the effects of days later. She faces willingly putting a drug into food and conspiracy charges. Lucky for her. If she were an adult, she’d be facing a possible felony charge.
This is a WTH moment and then some. First of all, what chat room, instant message, twitpic, instagram or Facebook post is that exciting where you have to drug your parents just stay on the Internet past 10:00 pm? My guess is she was probably on there flirting with an older man. And these parents just seem way too nonchalant for me. She would have needed a drug when I came to myself if I was her dad. How can they ever trust her again, especially with food? What will she do next when she can’t have her way? I think there’s a deeper issue here that’s not being addressed. I’m no Dr. Phil, but this is dysfunctional if I’ve ever heard of it. Where did the daughter even get these drugs from?
What do you think about it all? And what’s your favorite kind of milkshake? Chances are, you won’t be taking one from the crazy California internet girl.
