Oh, teenagers. At their best they can be funny, intelligent, kind, and caring sons and daughters. At their worst, they can drive a parent insane and force them to do extreme things.
British mom Ella Jane Brookbanks was fed up with her 14-year-old son’s moodiness. So she got on Facebook and wrote a hilariously epic ad offering her son “to a good and loving home.”

"Teenager – 14-years-old – but thinks he’s 32 – could pass for 4 though.......,” the note begins.
“Qualities include door slamming, wearing battered looking [sneakers] in the house, spending more time on his hair than his showers, mood swings, not having the energy to [vacuum] his room but having the energy to skateboard.”
Bradley comes with one outfit only: “ripped skinny jeans and a green battered top from H&M.” Potential buyers should be wary of taking Bradley out, “because although he is used to people, you never can tell whether he’ll have a good enough social response to any situation.”
But he’s a simple boy really, and you won’t have to talk much because “a soft grunt now covers most basic conversations.”

Not surprisingly, Brookbanks found a lot of parents of teens laughing along with her crafty post.
"Same in my house, same age but different sex and double the hormones! Plus a ton of makeup just to walk the dog," one mom wrote.
"That's hormones for you, gotta get better with age," another woman wrote.
Even Bradley enjoyed the joke. There’s still no word on whether his moodiness has improved, though.
