Reddit User Creates A 1-800 Number For Kids To Tattle To And It’s A Really Dumb Idea

This is one of those times I need to share with the class because after seeing this I kept thinking:

And that is pretty much my exact face. So here’s the deal, if your kid wants to “tattle” they should not tattle to you, they should call Tattle The Turtle and tattle to them. It’s like 1-800-narc.

How long before some hilarious trolls get ahold of this and start calling them number to leave messages for the stoned looking cartoon turtle saying shit like “MY POPTART GOT BURNT” and “SOMEONE TOOK MY COPY OF BATTLETOADS!”

The dude who created Tattle The Turtle, who goes by Realtordave, was met with a few skeptical people who asked stuff like:

Well, I am not a parenting expert, BUT I AM , and I would think if your tell your kid “don’t tattle” and then a few minutes you feel bad about saying that then maybe, just maybeeeee, you could go ask your kid what they wanted to tell you.

Or you could just reply like I do when one of my kids wants to narc on one of their siblings, with saying :


What if your kid wants to tell you that the house is on fire? What if one of your other kids is illegally downloading porno? WHAT IF, most importantly!, someone is drinking all of your vodka? Parents need to know these things ASAP and we have no time to wait for some high looking turtle to E-mail us to tell us what is going on!

I think it is sweet that Realtordave created something with his kids and that he wants to make life easier for parents, and  it may prove beneficial to some families. At least he spent quality time with his kids. Maybe one of you nicer (than me) readers can tell me why this idea is awesome and why we should all fully support the tattle turtle here, but I ain’t seeing it.
