TEGA CAY, S.C. -- A Tega Cay, South Carolina father believes a group of students broke into his house and threw a party while his family was on vacation -- and claims he has the Facebook pictures to prove it.
The 39-year-old said he didn't know anything had happened at his home until the photos surfaced online.
"I'm looking at them like, 'Wait, this is my house!' They are running around doing lewd things with funnels, throwing up in the sink, passed out on the kitchen floor," recalled the man, who asked not to be identified for his children's sake.
The teenagers pictured in the photos are his children's classmates. The man said the party-goers told his son the party happened around July 4, when his entire family was on a trip to New York.
His daughter said the teens broke into the house by tearing off a screen to an unlocked window. The family had no idea anything had happened until the photos surfaced three months later.
"The kids came back the next day and cleaned everything up, I guess. They even did the dishes. If someone hadn't been bragging by posting on Facebook, no one ever would have known. They wouldn't have been caught," said the father.
Wait so what is this family so upset about? Like yeah, I guess you probably feel a little violated knowing people were in your house that you didn't know about. That I get. But from what I can gather these kids waited for this family to leave for vacation like the Wet Bandits stalking the McCallister house, went in and partied, and then came back the next day to clean and patch up a broken door. I mean this guy even says had he not seen the pictures he would have never known. If there was ever a no harm, no foul situation, this is it. It's like if you park in a no parking zone, go somewhere for 30 minutes, come back and there's no ticket. You just drive off and no one is the wiser. Same deal here. They came, they partied, the cleaned up and no one got hurt. Sounds like a win, win no?
Now I guess you could take the stance of 'well if these kids wouldn't have posted pictures on facebook they literally would never have been caught.' Well that's easy to say after the fact but what's the point of throwing an epic party when you're 17 if you can't show off pictures. Plus who is going to believe they pulled this off without visual proof. Tree falling in the woods type deal. So while the obvious choice is to keep it to yourself it's easier said then done when you go Ocean's Eleven and throw an awesome party in high school. Classic catch-22 (?).
PS: Tell me what's weirder; the fact that these kids put those pictures on Facebook or the fact that a 39 year old man is looking at pictures of teenagers in high school.
Double PS: I can remember when my buddies and I were in college and home for the summer. We planned our whole vacation on whose parents were out of town when. I mean you should have seen it. We had calendars and dates blocked off, times of arrival and departure, easily the most organized I've ever been or will ever be again. But I will say that when it's YOUR parent's house it is not fun at all. I spent the whole night cleaning up spills and praying things didn't get broken or stained. But the bottom line is, if you have kids in this age range and you leave them to their own devices, a keg party is a best case scenario.
