Ten Most Annoying Things About Parents

The Contenders: Page 21

401 When they tidy your room, but misplace everything.

I also agree they don't do this often but when they do its annoying they clean my room and misplace things I ask them where is my camera or my football they say I don't know look for it

This is why I can't find most of my stuff

402 When you don't pick up your phone, it's the end of the world. When they don't pick up their phones, it's totally acceptable.

Being a teenager and unable to drive myself around, I manage to get around places with my mother or father. However, whenever my parents don't pick up the phone, they make excuses like, "I was watching T.V.." or "I forgot to pick you up" or "my phone died" which is perhaps the most most irresponsible excuses you could say. But whenever us kids do not pick up our phones, suddenly the police and the whole world must be notified because we're "missing", or doing something "bad". Then they'll lecture us about responsibility and the meaning of having a phone...

My dad just throws his phone around no care on what it hits

Give me a sec... I know what you mean!

403 When one parent makes excuses for the other, when there is no excuse.
404 When they diss video games yet they never played them

Since is was 12 I wanted a Sega Dreamcast (because I like video games before the 8th generation of video games in other words don't judge me).
Me: I would like to have a Dreamcast
Dad: No you cannot
Me:Have you ever even played it. It's awesome (I've seen gameplay)
Dad: I never played it because it only lasted for 2 years
Me: just because you haven't played it doesn't mean it sucks.
You know what they say don't judge a book by its cover, well my did exactly that

I told my parents to try video games but they were like this "nah"

I'm not talking about parents because my parents play games like bioshock iPhone games deadrising most of the people know hate video games because they never played and I blame their parents not sports and school - ikerevievs

405 Invite families that piss you off

I hate being in family gatherings sometimes, then she gets mad when something happens with one of the family members

I really Hate families that have whiny brats - MinecraftHater

406 They leave the door a little bit open when you tell them to shut the door

My parents barge in absolutely no warning then when they leave and I don't say anything they leave it open when I do say close the door they leave it open halfway. I CLOSE YOUR DOOR DO THE SAME FOR ME

This will have 2 be in the top tens because when I tell my mom 2 close the door she leaves it open just a little and I have 2 get up n shut it myself

And I chime in with a haven't you people ever heard of closing a damn DOOR?!

407 When you are doing something important, they stop you. And when you stop it, they yell at you for not looking after yourself!

Yeah! It's really annoying. I'm having a feeling that they do it to make us feel bad, like they once were. I was going to wash the dishes to be nice, when my Dad says "Don't do the dishes, we do them" and then the next second he says "WHY aren't YOU DOING THE DISHES? YOU ARE THE WORST DAUGHTER EVER! " What's wrong? Do they forget and then it comes back to them?

Wow my parents force me to do the dishes,I'm ten years old and I do the dishes

408 Favoritism just because the other sibling is younger

That doesn't always happen. Believe me its not in my house and I'm younger. Chill out about younger siblings. - Garythesnail

Are you kidding me? That's such a lie! I'm youngest and I totally always get blamed for EVERYTHING and when my older sister does the same its of course fine!

My dad yells at my little brother and I, and yet he LOVES to spend time with my little sister. (The little siblings are the same age, the sister is 2 minutes older) - mayamanga

Most of the time it is.

I got really strict rules and a lot of chores. from my parents but my younger sibling got less rules and chores. - njalabi63989

409 "When I was a kid" conversations

Like really, what do you want me to do then? Act like you, encourage the world to go back to their parent's generation and live that way? Are you trying to make me jealous, sympathetic because whatever you're trying to do is not working

I get it, when you were a kid, you were perfect... just stop - FireWasp2004

Them: When I was your ag.
Me: It is not the 1980's anymore. This world is completely different

Parents: When I was your age I...
Me: This is not the 70s/80s. This is 2016. Everything is so much different. - njalabi63989

410 They embarrass you for loving a girl

I started really liking girls when I was like 10 going on 11. I still am kinda embarrassed to say anything because I'm afraid of my whole family embarrassing me

I'm a girl and was into girls at one point and of course I get told "your not gonna be a lesbian right now" I really wanted to break down and cry

I hate that! Why do parents have to be more immature than toddlers?

My parents would disown me. No joke. They would kick me out at 16.

411 You're about to do something and then they tell you to do the exact same thing

My mom does that too much and when I get mad she's like SHUT UP AND JUST DO IT. In my head "I swear one of these days when I move out I'll break any connection with them"

Like homework, chores, I know, DAMN!

416 Throw things at you and hit you then expect you to act like nothing happened

Me and my mom get into arguments at least once every week. My mom likes to throw things at me whether it be a pencil, my books for school, or anything she can pick up and throw at me to hurt me. Then she hits be with things like a soup spoon, a hanger, a hairbrush, and tons of other things. Next day she gets mad at me AGAIN because she expected me to act like nothing happened and it didn't hurt and I was mad at her.

My dad threw a tennis ball as hard as he could at my balls from 5 feet away. (He was a minor league baseball pitcher too)

My mum once threw a small rock at me and it chipped the wall the said it was my fault

My mom does that sometimes once I almost shouted "you bitch, why did you do that" at her

417 When they ask you questions about something you don't know about.
418 They don't trust your girlfriend because she isn't your religion.

Ok, I'm Christian and so is my girlfriend, but we're different types, and they think that she's "untrustworthy".

Just read below.

"Hey son? Do you know that girl at our Church? She's pretty, and she's in our religion..."

"What's wrong with my girlfriend? "


419 They always overlook wonderful people.

They always think that wonderful people (Bill Gates, for example) are terrible people. What have they done wrong? Do you know ANYTHING about these people?

"Bill Gates is the best example for what Greed is."

"Mom, Bill Gates donated billions of dollars to hospitals for research to cure diseases."

420 They do not knock the door before enter on your bedroom

My mom doesn't even close the door all the time when she does this!

What's the purpose of a door if you're not gonna knock on it?
