He yelled that if he wasn't going to eat McDonald's, neither was his mom.

His stepdad told OP to go to his room. He said if they sent him to bed without dinner, then he will go to his dad's place and live with him.
It was OP's go-to threat. This time, his mom and stepdad called his bluff. They said they would call a cab for him in the morning.
His mom packed his things. They asked him again if he was committed to his decision. Still incensed, OP said he was. It has been a week at his dad's apartment, and OP couldn't wait to leave.
He kept calling his mom and stepdad to pick him up, but they reminded him of what he said before he left. They threatened to stop answering his calls if he kept pestering them. OP feels he has been punished enough and should be allowed to go home.
OP used his threat one too many times. It didn't yield the typical result of him getting his way.
Good on OP's mom for not relenting to his manipulation. He needed to learn this lesson before becoming an entitled adult.
A list of OP's childish offenses. It's easy to understand for his convenience.
Right? Boo-hoo, I had to sleep on a couch and share a computer because I was a jerk to my parents.
Enjoy the consequences of your childish and rude behavior, OP.
OP treats his parents so carelessly. His only concern is what they can do for him.
Why is OP so opposed to cheese anyway? He could have just removed the slice from his burger.
I can only imagine OP's mom and stepdad were upset when he threw the salad all over the floor. Our opinion of him didn't improve when he revealed that he frequently threatened to leave their house when he didn't get what he wanted.
OP needed to learn the lesson his mom was teaching him. He will come home remorseful or even more standoffish after his elected stay at his dad's apartment.
