A fed-up mom is making sure her testy daughter’s One Direction concert tickets head in one direction: straight to eBay.

The livid parent has decided to auction off four tickets to the boy band’s upcoming Sydney show on Oct. 25 in order to punish the youngster and her friends for what she deemed their “self-righteous” attitude after lying about a slew of illicit escapades.

And Mama sure didn’t mince any words.

In the rampaging listing for the tickets, the mother scoffs: “See sweety (sic)? And you thought I was bluffing. I hope the scowl on your bitchy little friends’ faces when you tell them that your dad and I revoked the gift we were giving you all reminds you that your PARENTS are the ones that deserve love and respect more than anyone.”

Turns out, the daughter in question was less than forthright about her extracurricular activities with her pals.

“YOU all LIED to us about sleepovers so you could hang like little trollops at an older guy’s HOUSE? Pffft!” the incensed mom writes in the listing.

She then goes on to chastise her daughter for their clique’s “pack mentality of taking your parents for fools,” before laying on some tough love.

“I’m not your friend. I’m your MOTHER. And I am here to give you the boundaries that YOU NEED to become a functional responsible adult,” she rails. “You may hate me now. But I don’t care. It’s my job to raise a responsible adult … not nurture bad habits in my teen age child.”

As of Friday, the bid for the tickets was up to $24,000 – a tidy sum for a priceless lesson in humility for an unfortunate One Direction fan and her pals.
