Mom’s 18-Point Terms and Conditions for Son’s iPhone

Like many teenagers, 13-year-old Greg Hoffman wanted an iPhone for Christmas.
But to get one, he had to agree to and sign an 18-point set of terms and
conditions – not from Apple or the phone company, but from his mom!

"Merry Christmas! You are now the proud owner of an iPhone. Hot
Damn! You are a good & responsible 13 year old boy and you deserve
this gift," the agreement begins. "But with the acceptance
of this present comes rules and regulations."

The first rule on his mother’s list: "It is my phone. I bought
it. I pay for it. I am loaning it to you. Aren’t I the greatest?"

"I hope that you understand it is my job to raise you into a well
rounded, healthy young man that can function in the world and coexist
with technology, not be ruled by it," Janell Hoffman wrote. "Failure
to comply with the following list will result in termination of your
iPhone ownership."

The rules include:

1. It is my phone. I bought it. I pay for it. I am loaning it to you.
Aren’t I the greatest?
2. I will always know the password.
3. If it rings, answer it. It is a phone. Say hello, use your manners.
Do not ever ignore a phone call if the screen reads "Mom"
or "Dad". Not ever.
