Re: Some unfortunate things as a Teenager... READ!
This whole thread reminds me of my stepdad. Luckily, I didn't have a drum kit back in those days (I'm 37 now) but he seemed to love to take things away from me just to exercise his authority.
He would routinely take away my car (that I paid for) for weeks at a time for ridiculous reasons such as he thought I was sighing at him. He once accused me of putting a nearly empty bottle of steak sauce back into the refrigerator (I still don't know who did that) and got grounded for a month.
Also, my curfew throughout high school was 9:00; even on weekends.
There are many, many other issues that I won't discuss here. Suffice it to say, I'm glad he is no longer with us.
So hang in there, man. This will all be over before you know it.
