Ten Most Annoying Things About Parents

The Contenders: Page 13

241 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.

242 They think they are smarter then you.

*As I'm crocheting a blanket*
Mom: "Are you sure that you're doing that right? Why isn't it a square shape? "
Me: "Because Mom, I just started it. The first row is a circle because it is impossible to start it out as a square. You have to gradually add rows to it to increase the size of it and it will eventually look like a square shape."
Mom: "I still don't think you're doing it right."
Me: "I think I know what I'm doing Mom. Do you know how to crochet? "
Mom: "Well, no but it doesn't look hard at all. It seems really easy. I don't know why you're getting so frustrated. It's just wrapping things and pulling a hook." IT'S NOT THAT SIMPLE MOM

Not on some cases. My parents can't even play the piano and they're like YOU DID IT WRONG! START OVER!

Actually this is true

I am a Linux power user, and Dad works at Visa. HE DOESN'T KNOW WHAT LINUX IS!

243 When they let your younger sibling stay up later than you did when you were their age

This is the other way around for me except they lie. Me and my brother have school days on different days and my parents always say we go to bed at the same time. I always catch my brother awake at midnight when I get water and I was told 9.

This sums up my whole life.

Holy crap 4:30 in the afternoon. That is stupid.

When I was 7 I slept at 7:30 PM now my brother is 7 and he slept at 9:00PM
PS my brother sleeps at the same time as me. - njalabi63989

244 You can do better.

Unless it's an A+ on a test, it's always, "you can do better than that." - Garythesnail

In my freshman year of high school, I did amazing 1st and 2nd quarter, with like 97 averages. In the 3rd quarter, my overall average dropped to a 94 but I had some big drops in some classes. Literally every single day my father reminded me of this. It was the most more able 2 months of my life.

Happened since I got a C and I got my history checked and got grounded. I have to go to the library forever tommorow.

245 When they make fun of your interests

I like anime and I spoke about it with my father and then my father starts to laugh because of the name of the character

They want me to hate all video games and all gamers (unless they're my friends) - njalabi63989

My mom teases me about liking minecraft instead of Call of Duty.

I don't even tell them my interests

246 Keep piling up the chores

My mom is nagging about it and my back hurts. how about "how are you feeling? " instead of get it done?

247 They say you lost something when they lose a lot of things themselves

They borrow my stuff, lose it, and blame it on me. I've never lost anything myself.

248 When they give you the same punishment over and over, when it clearly is making no difference.

When I was little my parents would give me spankings, and they never worked, in fat they had the opposite effect. Then they moved on to time outs and grounding me, which had no effect, because I didn't care either way. They really need to be more observant. Then they moved on to taking away the things I need to do school work, and I just thought *If I get bad grades, you can't yell at me for it* - Chelseyne

The entire concept of a punishment in a relationship between two equal human beings is bull. A punishment is not the consequence of your actions; it is the consequence of their willingness to punish you. If what you did was really bad there wouldn't need to be a punishment to prove it

My Mum used to put hot sauce on my tongue when I mis-behaved. But I started liking it so now I have her to thank for my spicy food obsession.

Yes when I get up for school late and my mum is taking my iPad and phone away. I mean. My MUM WAKES ME UP CLEArly she isn't DOING HER JOB CORRECTLY.

249 They compare their childhood to yours

My dad always complains about me not working as hard as he did when he was my age (14)

Dad-"When I was your age, I fixed the car, washed the dishes, cleaned the house, made the meals, and you sit on your ass all day on your computer"

Me-"I am 13 dad" (last year this started)

Dad-"I don't care, stop being lazy, and don't give me that look" (as I look at him)

My mom always says she never disobeyed her parents, and learned her lesson after being spanked once. I always think *I am not you, and I highly doubt you never disobeyed your parents.* - Chelseyne

Whenever my mom does that I want god to just strike with lightning and I actually pray for that

Times change. You're not a child anymore. - 906389

250 When you get in trouble for something you did not do

251 When you do the littlest tiniest thing and they overreact...a lot

I said I didn't like the company Nokia and she pretended to have a heart attack!

My dad does this all the time, like if I do something, for example talking with my sister. And then we start having a little argument (but it is not an argument) he storms over to us and starts getting mad...OVER NOTHING.

252 They rant about how you live in such a pigsty

If I had a more free time, my room would be less messy all the time. It's actually pretty clean right now, but don't go and buy me more crap when I tell you I have to much already. - Chelseyne

Yes. I have a room that of was empty could only fit ten people. But I have as much stuff as my parents so it's like impossible to have a room that's super clean

I wouldn't be living in one if they didn't keep so many stuff in my room

Most kids aren't neat people. Parents have to accept that. - 906389

253 They don't let you be like everyone else in school

I spiked my hair for my girlfriend, and my mom puts it down and brushes it to the side, So I LOOK NORMAL FOR SCHOOL. I Get to school, spike my hair in the bathroom and it stayed like that, I get home and my mom acts as if spiking my hair was like me killing the mcdonalds characters

Not my parents but my cousins. All my classmates have Grand Theft Auto 5 and they beg not to download Grand Theft Auto 5 and I have to do it anyway. - njalabi63989

254 They say that they will buy something for you but they don't actually buy it until two or three months later and that's only if you pester them

My friends birthday was on 31st august today is October 11th its been two months and they still haven't helped me buy a present I feel so bad and I could save up my pocket money but they only give me $2 per day I've only saved $8 till now. Although.. I made a card for her already. My friends think I'm poor because I only bring $2 per day all my friends bring around $7 per day (

I hate that. Now I have to buy my friends presents with my pocket money - Gusbus

They don't buy it at all, and I am not allowed to use my own money.

255 When they tell you what you can and can't wear

Shut up already woman your from the 19th century face it. We're in the 21st century so just chill and let me pick what I want.

I like wearing baggy stuff because I'm skinny but my mom tells me I have to wear slim fit and 'feminine' clothes instead of boyish clothing because it's weird if I don't. I don't want to show off my girlness, I want to FEEL COMFORTABLE.

My mom's friend gave us these really ugly pear of jeans, and I hate them! She won't listen to me though when I try to tell her how I feel in these jeans. Should be old enough to decide what I wear. I don't wear anything inappropriate, ITS JUST REALLY ANNOYINGLY!

In the end she says she can tell me to do whatever she wants because she is in charge! 😡

256 They say you're always on your phone

I've been in school all DAM day without my phone its when they see you on your phone they think your on it 24/7..

I don't even have a phone.

Mom: Get off your phone!
Me: I don't even have one!
Mom: I don't care, GET OFF OF IT

Same Here

They are like 10 in the morning

(MOM) hey get off that thing you've been on that all day
(ME) what I've been up like 10 mins for christs sake

257 When you want to get something, but you can't because you know that they will laugh at you

Like, I want to get a guitar, but I can't because I know they will laugh at me

258 They're overprotective for no reason at times V 1 Comment
259 They say they like things you make or do but then don't actually like them.

I like to make music and when I show my parents they say they like it but I hear them at night talking trash about it.

I once said Frozen sucks and my mom said I suck! I'm her only son! And the next day she said she didn't do that.

260 They steal

I was on my laptop, and Mum came in and snatched it off me.
