Do you think it's fair for my parents to take my concert tickets from me when I bought them ( asked permission before purchasing)

I purchased them and they aren't paying for any part of them and like it said above I asked there permission before buying them and now they are threatening to take them away just because i went to bed instead of finishing the dishes and keep in mind i was at my school until 9:30 and then had to study for an exam that determined whether i got into this college class i want to take and I have not done anything wrong and obey and my grades aren't bad at all. I have all a's except for one b+ that is dangerously close to an a-. so do you think it is fair of them to take them away? what do you think I can possibly do to prove to them that I deserve to go the concert? (the concert is tomorrow)

Why am I thinking that you not finishing your chore(s) isn't just this one time that it's happened? Could that have been the "icing on the cake" to them? Regardless of what I, or anybody else on here thinks, they are your parent's and you have to abide by their rules. If you have made it a habit of not doing what you should be doing, I would try to tell them, and MEAN IT, that you will truly work on it, and not do it again. I might be wrong about all of it, but that does sound pretty drastic, if you are getting good grades, obey and don't cause trouble as you say......I hope it works out for you.

ONLY because you didn't finish the dishes? Did you respond to them respectfully? Or did you justify everything? No matter, to answer your question, yes, I think it's fair.

Seriously only because I didn't finish them ( the reason they gave me) and trust me I responded respectively because if I wasn't respectful i would be grounded for like two weeks ( happened to my sister except hers was for 3 weeks because I believe she said something along the lines of "why not we go for the trifecta") and I plus I finished them when I woke up.

I should have been more clear. It sounds a little extreme, but I'm only hearing your side. Would I have taken away something my son bought? I don't think so. But, your parents may have a specific reason. Bottom line, they're the parents and they make the rules. To me, respect goes a long way. So, sit down with them and give them your total attention. Ask them to explain why they were threatening to do this. Ask what you can do to correct the problem. Even if you are not in the wrong, still ask what you can do. I really do hope you get to go.

That does sound pretty strict, but they did ask you to do something.... No, it's not fair. Talk with them and see if they'll be reasonable and work something out.

That does sound a bit too strict, so you should ask them politely for your money back.
