Have you ever bought your kid a funny greeting card? Made your kids come home by curfew? Made your son buckle his seat belt?

If your kids are as unscrupulous as 23-year-old Seven Miner II and his 20-year-old sister Kathryn, prepare to be taken to court. Kimberly Garrity has been sued by her children for $50,000 for "failing to take her daughter to a car show, telling her then-7-year-old son to buckle his seat belt or she would contact police, 'haggling' over the amount to spend on party dresses, and calling her daughter at midnight to ask that she return home from celebrating homecoming."

And then there is the notorious birthday card—on the front, a picture of tomatoes. One of the tomatoes looks different, and has googly eyes. Inside the card reads 'Son, I got you this Birthday card because it's just like you... different from all the rest!' Below, mom wrote, 'Have a great day! Love & Hugs, Mom xoxoxo'. Miner II claimed it was "inappropriate."

You may be wondering how this case even made it to court, or how these kids found a lawyer; their lawyer is their dad, Garrity's ex-husband, Steven A. Miner.

This would be funny if it wasn't so dysfunctional and sad. And it makes us wonder what kind of grievance list our kids are making on us, what with all the bedtimes, vegetables and tooth brushing.
