Everyone, at some point in their lives, has felt like their parents are too invasive or clingy. I know my chance at tranquility abruptly went out the window when my parents figured out how to text and email me.

Aubrey Ireland, a 21 year old musical theater major at Cincinnati College, has it far worse. To be blunt, her parents are insane. So insane that their own daughter got a restraining order against them.

Ireland’s parents would drive 600 miles from Kansas regularly to check in on Aubrey unannounced. They were convinced that she was abusing drugs, was “promiscuous”, and mentally ill.

They installed keystroke-monitoring software on her laptop and phone to track every text, e-mail, phone number, and social update that she typed. (My mom would cry for years if she saw my Google searches from the past hour.)

That last one definitely warranted action, and Aubrey took them to court. As a result of the restraining order, her parents were ordered by the judge stay at least 500 feet away and have no contact with Aubrey until at least Sept. 23, 2013.

“It’s just been really embarrassing and upsetting to have my parents come to my university when I’m a grown adult and just basically slander my name and follow me around,” Aubrey Ireland said in an Oct. 9 court hearing.

Since Aubrey’s parents refuse to pay for her senior year, the school decided to pay for the last year themselves. She may have insane parents, but at least she won’t have student loans to pay off.

Thank you, ex-girlfriend, for teaching me that “I am the average of my five best friends.” You were right. No wonder you hated them — the components of me, according to you. I guess they’re the reason why we broke up? I’m kidding, [former] love. Readers, do you find it weird that I remember 90 […]
