Teenager Furious After Being Forced To Spend Time With His Family During Power Outage
March 8th – As the latest winter storm wreaks havoc on the northeastern United States, millions have been left without access to electricity, forcing families to interact with each other face-to-face, and teenagers across the country are absolutely furious.
“This is bullshit,” said Kyle, a 14-year-old from Boston who doesn't care what you think. “Everything was fine for the first couple of hours, but then my phone battery died and then everything went to hell. My parents even had the nerve to ask me how school's been going lately. It's only been three hours since the power went out, but I don't think I can take much more of this.”
The storm, which is expected to impact up to 60 million people across the East Coast of the United States, is the last straw for Kyle, who feels that electricity is a right, not a privilege.
“I'm pretty sure Martin Luther King and the rest of the Founding Fathers didn't have this in mind when they saved America from the Indians,” said the temperamental teenager. “Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? More like death, prison, and the pursuit of getting the hell out of this stupid house.”
As of 3:45 this afternoon, the power had yet to come back on and Kyle's parents reported that he was curled up in the fetal position, cradling his PlayStation 4 and sobbing.
