Ever fought with your parents and wanted to report them to the authorities?

Here's some friendly advice: Don't call the police on your father if he sets fire to your illegal cannabis plants. Unfortunately, that's exactly what an irate teenager in Humpty Doo, Australia did Tuesday evening.

According to a Facebook post from the Northern Territory police, the young man had moved back in with his father several months ago, something heralded by millennials everywhere as "literally the worst." That meant at any moment, one of them would crack. And crack. They. Did.

It's unknown whether the incident occurred thanks to a run of the mill disagreement or a screaming match, but either way, the father took command of one of the teen's dearest possessions, his weed plants, and tossed it on a bonfire. Not just a diminutive fireplace or hearth, the police said, but a straight up bonfire.

More than a little upset, the teen called the local authorities, who had to remind the young man that possession of an illegal substance is more legally damning than flaming parental retribution.

In a brutal smack down by the cops, the department said no charges had been laid at this point, but that "the evidence has been destroyed. Along with his reputation."
