A 12-year-old boy from Sydney, Australia threw the world’s most impressive tantrum when he stole his parents credit card and booked himself a trip to Bali without letting the rest of his family know.
After a fight with his parents the boy decided that he wanted to run away and, unlike every child in the world, he actually followed through and stole his parents’ credit card. The Guardian reports that the boy tricked his grandmother into giving him his passport, and that the next day, under the guise of going to school, he drove his scooter to the local train station so he could get to the airport.
The boy did his research, booking flights from airlines that allow minors to travel alone, allowing him to fly with no problems. When he got to the airport, he checked in on a self-service terminal, boarded a flight for Perth and then another one for Indonesia. When in Bali, the boy arrived to an All Seasons hotel, where he’d made a reservation and claimed that he was waiting for his sister.
Once the school reported the missing boy, his parents checked their credit cards and discovered that he was in Bali. The mother flew to get him and said that she felt “Shocked, disgusted, there’s no emotion to feel what we felt when we found he left overseas.” She also said that the boy doesn’t like it when his parents tell him “no.” That’s not at all surprising.
