In the timeless words of Will Smith, parents just don't understand. Two teenage girls were arrested earlier this week after allegedly drugging one of the girl's parents. Why? Because they wanted to use the wonderful world wide web well after their 10 p.m. curfew.
See, on the night of December 28 in Rocklin, CA, the parents fell right to sleep an hour after drinking delicious milkshakes their 16-year-old daughter and her 15-year-old friend purchased for them at a fast food joint. According to police, the parents "woke up in the middle of the night feeling 'really groggy' with 'hangover symptoms,'" even though they had not been drinking. When they woke up again the next day with that same achey feeling, they knew something was wrong and bought a $5 drug kit.

Investigators later learned the girls crushed prescription sleeping pills and put them in the milkshakes so the parents would fall asleep and they could use the Internet past the 10 p.m. curfew.
"Mom and Dad had the Internet cut off nightly at 10 p.m.," [Rocklin police Lt. Lon Milka] said. "The daughter wanted to use it past 10 because I guess they're like most teenagers and the Internet is their life."
The parents didn't end up drinking all of the milkshakes because it was "kind of gritty" and "really funny tasting," Milka said.
The girls, whose names cannot be released due to their ages, were promptly arrested and booked on December 31 in Placer County Juvenile Hall "on suspicion of conspiracy and willfully mingling a pharmaceutical into food."
Kids these days: sanity-estranged.
