A Dad Leaves The Best Note Ever For His Messy Teens

Different parents have different ways of disciplining their children, and one father left the perfect note for his teenagers after finding unwashed dishes in the sink… again.

“My teenagers refuse to put their dishes in the dishwasher,” Redditor labuzan wrote in the online forum’s “funny” section. “So I put this above the sink.”

The note, posted in 2016, features none other than Liam Neeson’s character, Bryan Mills, from the action-thriller film “Taken.”

User “Labuzan” then combined his note with the ever-popular meme, “I Will Find You And I Will Kill You.”

Of course, the meme is based on the popular scene in “Taken” wherein Neeson’s character is on the phone with his daughter’s kidnappers.

What will user “Labuzan” do to punish his non-dish-washing teens, though? Every teen’s nightmare: Take away their phones and internet access. In his words, he’s “an expert in home wifi systems and cellular data plans.”

He says if the kids don’t clean up their mess, “I will look for you, I will find you… AND I WILL DISCONNECT YOU.”


Of course, Redditors ate it up.

One commenter wrote: “Liam Neeson in the 12th installment of the series, Taken: Internet Privileges.”

Another joked: “Taken 4: Granted.”

“Stop feeding them,” another commenter wrote.

“Best diet plan ever,” another said.

In a comment, Labuzan clarified that his kids are not bad people—they’re just messy.

“Actually, my kids have their s**t together. My oldest graduated high school a semester early and then got a 30 hour a week job to save money for college. My youngest has a 3.95 GPA in all IB classes and picked up a summer job for 30 hours a week. When it comes to the “big rocks” of life, they are squared away.”

They’re just… slobs.

Still, we think: Best. Note. Ever.

Does this meme ever get old? Here are some of our favorites:

“I don’t know who gave me the flu, but I will find you and kill you.”


Then there’s this one from a very serious “Walking Dead” fan who wrote: “I don’t care how close we are. I don’t care how much I love you. If you call me during the season premiere of Walking Dead I will find you and I will kill you.”


And this one created by a “Game of Thrones” fan who really does not want you to post spoilers from the leaked episodes until he has a chance to watch.
