Ten Most Annoying Things About Parents

The Contenders: Page 19

361 They complain about republicans if they're democratic or vice versa
362 They think that just because someone of the opposite gender said hi to you in public, you're dating them and then they tease you V 2 Comments
363 Compare grades from years ago to your grades now

Mom: Why are your grades now that bad (not that bad around 4.5) like 5 years ago they were 5.0
Me: But 5 years ago we used to learn what our name is
Mom: You're grounded
Dad: Yes you will fail your life you stupid mother - WhatAreWeHaving4Lulz

364 Build a huge house, then complain about doing work all day
365 When they stare at you while eating

You think you did something wrong, even if you didn't. It's like they're waiting to say something.

366 They claim that you are on bad websites when you aren't and they look at your search history

That always happens to me I'm 11 if I DARE watch something with a boy in it for example: my mom checked my web history she saw I watch Thomas Sanders vines the next minute

367 They claim anime and American cartoons are the same thing

Jesus I literally have no words for this. My mom is constantly grouping these two together, and then she gets r ally upset when I try explaining to her that they're different. Like Jesus . Come on.

368 They are trying to make sure you can't go into private mode and check your browsing history all the time V 1 Comment
369 They make you go to summer school even though you passed.
370 When you are arguing with them, they almost always win the argument
371 They let your little sister get away with things that they won't let you do

Since "They let your little brother get away with things and don't believe you" was posted, I thought that this should be posted as well. Younger siblings tend to get away with things that older siblings cannot, regardless of their gender. It is not JUST little brothers that act like that. - anonygirl

372 They make insane conclusions/comparisons

Your logic isn't ALWAYS right. - alphadan12

373 They hate video games

Especially this game I adore. Most parents hate my favorite series, Grand Theft Auto V for some reason... - AlphaQ

374 They still think they have authority over you even when you're 18 and you've moved out
375 They say you need new shoes when you don't and they make you replace them for no reason
376 When they punish you for exposing them for something they did
377 They poop and don't flush

My dad does this and I get the job of being his cleaner apparently because pushing a handle is the equivalent of running a mile to him.

378 Very talkative and gives you lots of commands even if you can't do it
379 They think that the can relax, be easy-going because they know that you're there for them

what if an incident happened to you and you can't move or you died? - ronluna

380 Treats your little siblings better and gives them more respect

My mother always compared me to my younger sister saying I should be like her. She never stood up for myself when I would get into fights with my younger sister even when I was right, saying I was older even though we were only a year apart. I feel I never got any encouragement in my childhood and that I could never have a say nor win in any situation. I grew up watching my sister be protected and me having to give up on my reasons, toys, my personality and everything. Today she is a very confident and social person with many friends, a loving boyfriend, and naturally centered in herself as she has been conditioned. I became a very insecure and awkward person with no self-esteem, no friends, no social life, no boyfriend and unemployed with a history of meaningless jobs, no money but only debts. I am now stuck in life, depressed and feel very messed up, resentful, angry and to this day all I get is judgment from my family saying I am a lazy person even though I take on most of the ...more

Damn, your family must be really dysfunctional, I would say as dysfunctional as Somalia, but anyway sorry that happened to you

She'll treat me like I'm really lazy, when I work my butt off and I'm only 14, and turn around and have that little rubbing it in voice to my little brother saying thank you for helping me or thanks for doing something w/o me asking. I do things w/o her asking and all she does is say that I didn't do it right when take almost all day trying to get things the way she wants. My brother can do it and all he does is pile things up. She always says my brother does and says the right things when all he does is copy whatever I do and he gets the credit. I've just gotten to the point that I'm asking myself "why is it that if I can give up being with my friends and all my touch screen electronics (which she took from me b/c "i'm lazy") basically all my interests just to make my mom happy and she acts like a spoiled rich 7 year old? "

THIS. SO MUCH. I'm 15 and the oldest of three girls, who are age 10 and 8. Not only are they the best of friends (thanks to age difference), but I am constantly compared to them and criticized by my mom, while they get away with every single thing they do incorrectly. For instance, the other day we were all eating dinner at the tablr when my mom became extremely upset with me for not cleaning my room. I'll admit, I deserved it as I kinda stink at cleaning it, but my sisters (who share a room) are about 10x worse. Of course when I tried to bring that up, my mom simply ignored the fact and continued to raise her voice saying how I don't do anything to help in the family, while my 2 little sisters are precious angels who do everything perfectly. At other times, she will berate me about not showing her enough respect, but I try to tell her that respect is earned, not automatic. Of course she gets infuriated with me, always bringing up how amazing my little sisters are and how I should be ...more

It's the other way around for me - Nanis149
