Here is the issue for anyone in high school:
"Hey can I go I go to CP?"
Parental guardians: "Who's giving you a ride?"
"Some guy I met online"
Or the awkward: We are coming with you situation.
And how much would we pay for entry with a group?
You wording it all wrong.
You gotta be like
"Would you guys prefer I go paintballing with strangers OR
do drugs and have unprotected sex with strangers?"
Wait for reply....
You good to go.
DON'T YOU PUT ME IN THAT SITUATION YOUNG MAN!
What my mom always does when I provide a educated, well-rounded counter-argument.
