So she freaked out and was like "What are you still doing with all that????" And i was like "Mom don't sweat it, I make stacks." and she was no longer mad. I told her i'd made thousands of dollars and she was like "oh, just don't get arrested". Went better than expected!
LOL I had the same thing happen to me bro.
My mom knows I do *something* and that's good enough for her
She's been bugging me for a few months about buying new shit and stuff and i just told her it's left over money from my summer job. But i only worked part time this summer and i've spent more than i made all summer. So once the total spent hit like $1,500 she was getting really suspicious lol. So i guess this was all in due time. At least she knows i'm not a drug dealer!
-Neopets its like drugs... xD
The same thing used to happen with my parents. They'd hate me playing games like WoW and stuff, even when I sold gold, I was only making a couple hundred dollars. When I went back home last year for a while, I showed them I was making five digits, and they left me alone permenantly to do my thing, lol.
I love how people aren't mad at you, they just find it more funny than anything for you stealing neopets accounts. It's neopets. I love it.
I don't mention neopets to my mam any more. She was convinced I was going to jail for taking a neopet from a shell. =/ oh dear.
My ex boyfriend freaked out on me when he found out and told me I was a terrible person
He was a terrible person, thus my ex :p
I don't really talk to my parents about it though, they wouldn't understand
