I think I just turned into my mother!!!

I think I just turned into my mother!!

OD said she was going out with friends today, fair enough. Usually they stay close to home & I know where she is and who with. I felt that was a reasonable ask. I have said many times in the past that she is not to go into a neigbouring town. She has her key, her phone & some money. I usually end up with a houseful of teenagers at some point, which I don't mind as I'd rather know where they all were & that that they are safe.

I got a text message a little while ago saying there were all off to a skate park. I asked where it was as I know there isn't one near us, tad too far away for my liking, so I said no. I got a load of attitude, then discovered after a few texts, that she was in said town mentioned earlier. At which point I phoned her. Apparently the plans had changed when she met up with everyone this morning, she hadn't lied to me, she wanted to stay with them... She didn't tell me at all as she knew what I would say.
I've told her, not asked her, to come back into our town or come home. Further attitude & screaming at me down the phone, then I said either you walk home now, or I come and get you.

GRRRRR

Oh no!

Did she come home as requested (told) and what did she have to say for herself?

I'm getting lots of no's from es atm. He thinks when I ask him to do something he gets a choice of whether or not he wants to do it! 
Did she come back herself or did you have to get her?

She came back by herself & after a few words, spent the rest of the day in her room. Without her mobile or internet connection. I took the phone, but the my intention of turning the netgear off and taking the power cable with me was kind of scuppered when I realised it wasn't working at all....lol.
Today she has remarkably good, hasn't asked for her phone or the laptop.

I have said I would've been happier to take her & friends to the skate park & come back later to get them, rather than had the tantrums, tears & attitude.
