    Y is everyone cussing you out? On your first post on this thread, you said that the OP made her mum curious by putting a padlock on it, which is true. Manesh also said that the responses are from "typical white people". Quite a few people here have said "is your mum asian", and "this happens in asian familes" etc but everyone is ignoring the generalisations made there...:confused:

    I also agree with both generalisations. Alot of asians are very strict AND the responses on this thread come from typical white people.
    White people do think that its as easy as talking to your parents, having a word, writing a letter etc. Many ethnic parents will probably be like wtf, if there son/daughter asks to have a word...They believe that they are in charge of their households and thats not really going just cos their son/daughter is all like "oh but you cant read my letter mummy, Im 18 so your breaking the law. Plus you are hurting my feelings..."

    And also, the people who are critisising his writing are pathetic. If you are so intelligent, you'd be able to understand his posts. Stop being petty.
    Thanks for the support, thats what i was trying to point out but they were too distracted by my bad writing style lol.

    If we just left it open, people may think we were about to close it and that would lead them to the inevitable conclusion that we mistrust them, and as that isn't true I see the only way to make it clear that I trust everyone and only have a door to keep the heat in when it is cold is to remove it
    This is hilarious! I'd rep you if I had rep left.

    erm cose if no ones standing at the door someones magically going to appear and close it at the face of who ever wants to come, and this whole heat thing is completely off topic i was using the door thing as a example.... use some common sense and i bet this was just a good excuse sicne u had flawed logic in the fact that you were mistaken between windows and doors.
    You are the biggest idiot I've come across on this forum.

    I did. The repeated gibberish you sprouted provided me with sufficient reason to label you an idiot.

    This

    Why is everybody saying this? She said what was in it near the beginning (or strongly hinted, anyway.) She's got a vibrator in there.
    I can't believe I actually read through this entire thread to find out what was in the box!

    I have a box like that with little letters in from my friends which aren't "private" in the sense that I'm hiding anything but they're "personal" to me. My Mum once started looking through them, while I was sat right there, and then got angry/upset when I got annoyed and asked her to put them back in the box. There's nothing wrong with having privacy, but I think parents find it difficult to realise that their baby is an adult and needs that privacy- whereas if they were like 10 or something it'd be okay to look through their room, as they'd be the ones (most likely) cleaning in there.

    I am so angry, my mum just went through my things in my bedroom 'looking for the remote' and came across my padlocked box (hidden at the very back of one of my drawers) to which I keep private things. I was in the shower she then banged on the door demanding to know what was in there and rattling it about. I am seriously at my wits end. But the annoying thing is that SHE is the one angry at ME cos she thinks i'm hiding something! I'm eighteen!! I'm moving out in September but have no where to go until then. I have tried sitting down with her and talking about it but she's the one who gets angry at me saying I'm hiding stuff. She opens my mail and reads my texts. The reason I bought the padlocked box in the first place was so she wouldn't be able to go through my things but I guess this has not worked. I'm so worked up right now, and I know for a fact as soon as i'm off to college tomorrow she will somehow manage to break into the padlocked box cause that is what she's like. When I was a bit younger she went through my phone and found some messages to an ex that were slightly 'naughty' and went mental at me, didn't talk to me for weeks even though she invaded my privacy, she doesn't even care about that. I could forgive her then however as I wasn't legally an adult but now i'm nearly nineteen I am so angry, I can't stop shaking.

    Has anyone ever been in this situation?
    lol bet you have a dildo in your box

    This thread has no answers. Until I have further notice I will assume the box contains OP's collection of toenail clippings.

    Lol why are you now giving advice to hide stuff :confused:
    You just spent ages ****ging people off who get annoyed when their parents go through their things.

    You've clearly just never had any privacy from your parents, don't worry, you'll get loads when you move out
    erm cose thas just common sense, if you really have issues about privacy then obviusly you should hide it so it isnt getting attention.

    And yes i do get privacy from my parents and thas why i aint the one that is complaining about privacy issues =/

    my first post already had said to hide things anyways, its not like i came up with it after ****gin everyone of =/

    whas the use for a door then? to stop someone or something from coming in.
    As mentioned earlier, walls insulate the house by reducing loss of electrical heat and draft. Now, of course we could have walled-houses without doors, but that wouldn't be particularly intelligent. In regard to windows, they also let in natural light.

    Yeah but you've contradicted yourself, you were preaching about how it was acceptable for people's parents to look through their things and how we shouldn't hide stuff then you said that.

    No you don't get privacy. You said your parents look through your things. That's not privacy.
