221 They don't knock before entering the bathroom

My mum once walked in on me when I was stark naked and it was dead embarrassing

She knocks but does not wait for me to respond and walks on in

Major issue! I'd like a little privacy please

Uh somebody ordered privacy

222 When you have a bad attitude one day and that attitude automatically becomes your personality

If I have ONE BAD DAY and I'm grumpy for the rest of the year I'm considered grumpy even when I'm having a really good day!

Normally I am a very smile happy person. But I was a bit melancholy today and my mother decided that I am depressed and started interrogating me on why I was depressed.

Except that you did not actually have a bad attitude and they are just being stupid.

223 They tell people your secret although you asked them not to

That's what happens to me. I just say to my mom not to tell this to anyone.

224 When you really hurt yourself and they say stop overreacting

I had a concussion in the 6th grade from falling down the stairs. My mom was forcing me to go to school and I kept dosing off and I couldn't pay attention in class. My mom wouldn't believe me or any of my teachers that I was seriously injured. So my teachers had to me go the nurse one day withought calling my mom first and I did in fact have a concussion and my mom was so mad at me for "not telling her that I was actually hurt! "

My mom made me walk on a broken foot for two days because she didn't believe me. It took another moms saying to actually get me to the ER... I had to miss school for 4 weeks because I had to be homeschooled...

Once I smashed my foot on a log and it was swollen and it felt like hell and I was about to cry and they said "stop overreacting its not that bad" when it was like the size of Easter egg (the ones you get in a box)

I use to fake sick when I was like 8. Now when I am sick my mum is a lil sketchy she thinks I'm lying.

226 When you are going somewhere like your bedroom and during that, they look everywhere in your search history

I swear my parents do this when I'm with my friends, or when they get out early from work. because somehow they found about my WHOLE LIFE STORY in like a day. That and they don't "trust me" because of the "stupid mistakes" I've made in the past because they go online and check my messages on me phone through Verizon to see what I'm talking about. Even if I do text words like "crap" or other things it's not like I never hear them curse! My dad is constantly cursing and his "favorite" word is "s***" My mom has even had " The Talk" with me so why does it even matter?!

My mom doesn't trust me and she had done this a couple times so I'm afraid she's going to check my history every time I leave her alone with my computer and my dad has threatened me a lot about how 'he can see everything I type'

Just use your bad searches in private browsing and good in normal mode; that will do the trick.

227 They buy your siblings things that are worth tons of money and you have to earn the things that you want

Yes sounds about right. I really wanted a new iPod after my mum dropped my one and smashed all the screen. The next day she buys my sister one and says that I have to wait and buy mine with my money. How can she break mine but get my sister a new one especially when her one is only 6 months old

My mother just says that everything is fair but when your brother gets an 800 dollar object that he needs, my sister gets a 1600 dollar object that she needs, and I have to earn my 400 dollar object. They just get given it and that's fair somehow? I do not get their logic.

I have to do all the chores for a week to earn $1, and my brother gets everything he wants for free. - Kaboom

That doesn't happen to me but that is horrible

228 They claim incognito mode is bad all the time

So my mom is always saying that when in hard situations in school, don't bring attention to yourself, and be cool. But then when I tell them I was quiet and was cool,they get pissed at me. Why though!

229 They expect you to be perfect

My parents think I procrastinate on long term projects, and they don't understand I am busy doing short term stuff. Now they are overreacting and making my teachers counsel and check in with me.! What if I have a certain way of doing projects huh? Leave me alone! All my grades are A's and higher. What else do you want me to do?

230 They spend too much time with you

Lol, the 'they died' one made everyone feel too guilty to continue.

I wonder what kind of person added the "they died" one. :3

231 They think your social anxiety is fake

This is sooo very true! I mean my mom was being very loud and screaming at me and I was getting upset... like every time I tried to say something should would scream at me or hit/slap me and she made me cry and my face was turnign red and I tolf her to stop because I was starting to have an anxiety attack but noo! She told me to shut up, and I went to school that day and my whole school noticed how I was off because I was grumpy and upset about it until 8th period when I spoke to my boyfriend about it because he noticed I wasnt myself and he comforted me as I cried and told him how annohyng and fustrating my mom is and how she treats me with suh disrespect. I really do sometimes hate my mom.

232 Making your bed

I make my bed then about 2 minutes later my mum does it again and I can never tell the difference

I have to make the bed a lot.

One moment later (yes that's a unit of time): My mother is making the bed.

When she finishes, I can't tell the difference.

233 When you are enjoying yourself at the playground and your parents force you to try something else

When I am enjoying myself riding on the see saw, they will force me to try the monkey bars near my playground

Consistency is very good. Not inconsistency

They always want you to try something new

234 When they say they're doing all the work and we are lazy then boss us around.

Oh my mom is so lazy all she does is sit around watching korean shows that are similar and she eats then after she eats she complains about being tired but all she does is eat sleep and watch she doesn't even wash the dishes or even clean the house then she complains how dirty our house is! My dad is so tired he cooks goes to work everyday he cleans the house my mom wont even cook and she only works 3 days and she complains ah help me?

My dad works from home during the day which means he sits on his butt and takes calls and works from his laptop and then at night he sits on his butt and laughs up a storm, having a good time playing Call of Duty with his friends. I mean he does clean but he makes me do the heavy lifting like cleaning dishes which I hate.

My mom is so lazy, she has me do all her work and she just sits on the couch.

235 When they make awful "jokes" and get annoyed when you don't laugh

Seriously... My parents always try and be funny and I don't laugh because its NOT funny! And then they get pissed off and then use another "hilarious joke" which is "did you have a sense of humour removal? " WHAT.

Whenever my parents do that I just walk away no words come out of my mouth no warning I just suddenly get up from where I'm sitting and ho anywhere but where they are

My dad uses ME as the "main character".

I honestly hate when this happens.

236 They have an attitude

I stay in my bedroom all day long unless I'm going to work, workout, visit cousins! - Johnny1991

My parents and I are talking about futbol and the world cup and then my parents want to act like I am having a condescending tone even though it is a regular conversation. come on parents! Get rea;! Quit treating me like I am 3 and treat me like I am 16

It's like my mom can get an attitude with me, but when I get one back, I'm the bad one maybe I should tell grandparents how you acting

Yes! Yes, THEY have an attitude. A stupid one.

Kids now a days listen to terrible music! I'm 15 years old but I listen to Metallica, Anthrax, System of a Down, etc. Kids today listen to pop and hip hop songs about drugs and sex - DoroExploro13

You kids these days have terrible music. the music in my day was 100 times better than yours.

Dad: When I was your age, music was good! Your music is terrible! We wouldn't have had you if we knew you'd listen to this garbage.

No Slayer, no death metal, no...

238 They ground you instead of talking about the situation

My mom thought I posted something on Instagram about my dance teacher, and said no Instagram until Monday. Then I was able to explain then she said oops sorry.

My parents never grounded me, they just screamed at me till I felt like killing myself. Still happens at least once a week.

thank u

My mom took away my games, and she won't give them back EVEN THOUGH I told her I learned my lesson and asked for my games back. DAMN IT SHE doesn't UNDERSTAND ME! 💢 It's so annoying I swear! Now she won't give them back ITS SPRING BREAK. I HAVE NOTHING TO DO. I'm BORED OUT OF MY DAMN MIND!


Cause she won't forgive me even though it's Easter and I have nothing to do for fun. Except watch PBG on NormalBoots. It's so damn annoying when she does this.

239 Their long lectures

Holy crap this happens to me whenever I do something wrong! It's so annoying! Do I WANT to hear these long lectures? OH HELL NO. But my moms the parent so SHE tells me what to do and never lets me do what I want to do! Damn it that's so annoying. When my mom lectures me I'm like "Blah blah blah, get to the ' point already! " And my mom always never lets me leave until she's done talking I JUST WANT TO GO TO MY DAMN ROOM WHY can't YOU JUST LET IT SLIDE JUST THIS ONCE!

This happens EVERY time I forget to do something "yes dad, I know I heard this lecture about a million times now! "

Yess! My dad does this and it's so annoying. Like I get it already.

When I do the SLIGHTEST thing wrong, my grandpa gives me a 15 minute lecture while he makes his "angry face". IT'S SO ANNOYING! He acts like I threw popcorn and confetti all over the house! - XxDJPartyGirl1034xX

240 When they "borrow" your money and when you ask them to give the money back, they say: "I buy you clothes, food etc.

I didn't ask to be born and have you raise me and pay for my food, bills, housing (etc) you knew that when you had kids, you would be paying for extra expenses for 18+ years so why do You get to use the fact that you pay to "put a roof over my head" to not give me my money back when you BORROW it? Huh?

My dad owes me $700, and my mom owes me $2,896. All from the last 10 years of borrowed money.

Same thing happened my dad and my brother.

My dad owes me $150 - Nanis149
