Ten Most Annoying Things About Parents

The Contenders: Page 7

121 They are bad-tempered and gets angry easily, even when nothing happens to them

My mother will always go "not in that tone! " but herself she screams 90% of the time she talks

I guess one of the benefits of parenting is being able to get away with hypocrisy. - alphadan12

One time in 2014, my arrogant, overly sensitive grandma yelled at me outside of my family's house in the front porch about yelling, even if all I was doing was checking on one of my flower gardens.

My mum gets mad at every little thing! And it's not just me, she does it to everyone in my family. I'm starting to think she actually ENJOYS getting mad and yelling at us - maybe she thinks it's fun.

I get a lecture/a rant/a yell for almost every sentence I say to them. Lesson learned: Talk to parents as little as possible, only talk to them if it's very very very very very very very necessary - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

122 When they compare our music to theirs.

This honestly makes me want to kick something small in the face.
Dad: your guys' music is such garbage. It's not even music. You guys don't even have bands anymore. You guys don't even know what real music is.

This annoys me so much. I'm into hip hop and my dad is always lecturing me on how the music I like is "fake" and shows me what "real" music is and its like rock and stuff like that

I am into fun. And other bans, most of them are pop or indie.
My dad is like "This is real music" and its metal crap.

Me; *listening to my death metal, black metal, symphonic metal, and doom metal quietly with headphones on*
My mom and dad; *have their blues, country, Xtain, and classical music blaring throughout the entire house, or car.*
Me; *deals with it but slowly suffers from how loud it is* *me asks them if they want to try listening to my music to see if they may like it.*
My mom and dad; "nope! I'm not gonna listen to your evil satanic, not real music mind you, music ever! So stop bugging us about it and leave us alone! YOU should listen to our holy and pure and wonderful music that is actually music! "
Me;...*saying in my head; "what!? You guys don't even know what metal music bands sing about! "* *turns and walks away back to my room crying silently.*

123 When they just take your phone for absolutely no reason at all.

If you say something that they don't like or if the feel you're not on task, they take your phone. Other times, they just take it randomly and find some random irrelevant reason to support their actions.

Right so right! My step mom always acts weird every once in a while and just takes it! Then when I ask her what I did she says nothing then I ask can I have it back she says no on this very annoying voice.

When I'm on my phone, my mom secretly steals it when I'm busy on it. I was like "HEY! " " Enough on the electronics for the night! " My mom told me.

My mom has taken mine because "I was using it too much". I had just gotten it out for the first time she even knew about that day!

124 They treat you worse than your siblings

They say that they treat me and everyone else in the house the same way, but in reality they don't. For example, if my older brother were to do something wrong and mess up, they would be like, "Oh that's ok honey, it's no big deal anyway". But if I do a similar mistake, they would get all up in my face and be like, "WHY DID YOU DO THAT, HUH? YOU KNOW THAT YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO DO THAT! AND FOR THAT REASON, YOU'RE GROUNDED FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR UNTIL YOU COME TO THE REALIZATION OF WHAT YOU HAVE DONE! "

My mom and dad always say " oh look she looks better than you, you would look better if you were skinnier" and I was wearing the same clothes as my sibling

My parents call me good-for-nothing. They also ignore my little brother and love my little sister more. - mayamanga

Age doesn't matter. If they did something wrong, they DID SOMETHING WRONG. - alphadan12

125 They don't let you in your devices on weekdays

Never mind weekends..It's my life everyday! I'm 19 and my parents won't let me be on my phone unless it around them, I can't even have it on me..it has to stay in the office and it gets checked everyday. I got my first phone when I was 18 and they have had my phone for 5 months because "YOU don't need it...what for? " ughh

Deserves to be on the list. - thisisaveryrandomusername88

126 Where you going? What time are you going to be back? Who are you going with?

When your doing something private parents scream out what are you doing?

No one questions my younger brother. Me? I suppose as a girl, I get hounded with tons. I feel like I'm being interrogated just for wanting to hang out with friends. They're a huge part of the reason why I hate going out now. If I ever do go out, I don't even bother to let them know ahead of time. Sometimes I'll just go, sometimes I'll let them know at the last possible moment and provide only a few vague pieces of info (if I feel like it). Everything goes much more smoothly like that. Screw permission. I'm 18 for crying out loud.

Why should I tell you anything ma!? So you can have an opportunity to be bossy and say "No, you can't go because I said so! " Then I march up to my room pissed off of how much I can't stand you!? No thanks! - Johnny1991

127 They can do everything just because they are adults

Once, I was just playing on my computer, then look who stepped through my door?! Mom. What did she say? She told me to do this and this and that, out of the most nowhere of nowhere!

They can do this, that, those, these! We never get freedom!


128 When they hurt our feelings and tell us it's fair

Oh my god, yes! I hate how parents don't seem to understand that bullying is bullying, it doesn't matter if their your parents! That can screw a kid up more than anything.

My dad doesn't believe in bullying in the family. He's like how is that bullying? How am I bullying you? I don't like that word bully. He comes up with some excuse saying that family doesn't bully you blah blah blah.

Hell yeah This one is so % $#/ing annoying

My mom was a popular skinny girl who had A LOT of boyfriends before dad. I have always been a fat black sheep with few friends and one boyfriend (who's sweet and perfect, whereas dad's an abusive drunk) My mom has acted horribly jealous of me since I was very small, and everyone notices (i'm her only daughter. ) also, not a day went by until high school that I didn't cry because of them.

Yeah, dad, I'm talking to you. So it's basically fair if you call your firstborn daughter names and NOT call your other daughter one. - mayamanga

129 They shorten your video game time

Its not really a big deal for me if they're just telling me to go to bed because it's late, although I will stall, but when they threaten to take the computer away when I get mad at them they don't understand that the Internet is literally the only place where I have a real friend who isn't an animal. And then if I tell them that my dad will say "well you don't know her in real life she could be a stalker." Um excuse me if she was a stalker I think she would have found my house by now. Not to mention, you trust YOUR internet friends, I literally SAW you on that Dave Ramsey site, why am I not allowed to trust MY internet friends just because I can't see their face? Jesus Christ...

My mom took away all my games. She still hasn't given them back. What if I took away your Game of Thrones stuff, HUH?! HOW THE HELL WOULD YOU FEEL? Damn it!

I love gaming but I'm not allowed more than 1 hour of screen time! I swear, when I move out, I'll play video games as much as I want!

130 They're annoying

It is kind of true, but you should appreciate your parents though, they give you food and a shelter where to live. They buy all the stuff you own and teach you good lifetime morals. There are some kids with no parents that wish they had parents to give them a good home instead of following a routine in an orphanage. - AnimeDrawer

They're important because they raised us, but yes, they're very annoying at the same time - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

Well they may seem like it, but (usually) their "annoyingness" will end up saving your life when you're an adult because your parents teach you to make better choices in life. - Anonymousxcxc

My grandpa is really annoying. Every morning when I'm doing something to get ready for school I hear this... "HURRY UP! HURRY UP! HURRY UP! Come on come on! HURRY! NOW! "

Me thinking: Shut up. - XxDJPartyGirl1034xX

131 They lie

They say that they have faith on me...but when time comes to show me that they really have then they ask quest. And never understand me. They even think I lie but I don't. I cannot lie to my parents at least.. I don't know where is the faith... Even when I have done nothing like that...

And they're supposed to be our role models. - alphadan12

Please just krep one promise

- *I walk into my mom & dad doing "IT"
Me - Mom what are you doing? O.O
Mom - Uh Dad and I are just sleeping
Me - *Facepalm

132 They blame everything on you even when it's their fault

My mom was drunk all the time and was angry at me because she had no job. because I was just in her life she could be angry at me
for it - Getovait

133 Child favoritism

This might be true (only if u belive it) well this is what I think and has been seeing through out my whole life as being the youngest daughter I think that moms are more caring and more loving when it comes to their sons and dads are more caring and loving about their daughters... Everyone in my family says that and yes both of the parents do care about each child but they have different feelings for each genders and it really hurted me but I don't care no more ad I am not trying to say oh your mom doesn't love you or your dad doesn't love you this is what I have seen through my life but just so u know your mom is really your bestfriend and your dad will always be there for u (i love them both) it's so annoying though like seeig your mom care about your brothers 😑😑😑😑

134 They hate cell phones
135 When you are serious, they laugh like it's a joke

I have to avoid my dad getting overweight by making him need at least a little bit of sweet treats like 2-3 cookies, 1 pastry of pop tarts, 1-2 pieces of candy, and a small bowl or cup of ice cream a day, but he doesn't care. My mom is getting sick of it. I say something important, he laughs like I'm a joke. I don't tell jokes to my parents.

I try to tell my mom something 100% serious and she thinks that I'm trying to be funny then I try being funny and she thinks that I am being serious

, YESSS! I tell my grandpa I'm being serious, he laughs like I just said a really big joke. But when he tells me to be serious and I'm not or I giggle slightly from thinking about something funny, he raises his voice at me. - XxDJPartyGirl1034xX

It always happens to kids my age and younger

136 When you explain to them something, they understand it completely wrong

It is so annoying. I tried to tell them how to change their phone password and it took them 20 minutes to get to the settings app.

Aka They don't understand it. Because they are stupid

137 When they are on their phone all day and ignore you

If I interrupt my Mom while she's texting or on Facebook, ignores me. If I do it again she turns around and full out freaks. Yells and swears!

It isn't fair and they always jump to conclusions and always think you have a temper issue even when you are just trying to be normal.

Same but my parents are always using their computers. To be fair, most (not all) is for work.

My parents always call and text messages around 85% of the time.

138 They think someone you hate is your friend

So, I had a play date and my mom forced me to invite my worst enemy just because his mom was her friend. While the play date is happening, I'm trying to have a tea party and he comes and ruins everything with his big fat mouth.

My mom always talks to the parents of the people I don't like, and tells me I should be more open when I tell her I don't want to talk to them

TOTALLY! Mom forced me to go out on a date with my worst enemy.

I saw this in Lilo & Stitch. The sister (Nani) thinks that the bitchy girl (Mertle Edmonds) is Lilo's friend when she's really not. What the hell? Does Nani even care about Lilo's depression?! - Stazemar000

139 When parents do something wrong, they blame it on you

My sister is mostly the one who blames me for such crap. One time, she found her coffee bottle in the dishwasher and blamed me for putting it there, even though I didn't do it - Stazemar000

I talk to her when she is busy and when she messess up I am wrong


140 They're liberal

YES! I hate that since I'm a Republican!

Yes...It's like they can dO anything...for instance: - If you break china/or a glass bowl...you are a dead person...the argument is going to end up with the sentence "you are not responsible "
And if my mom breaks a bowl...excuse me...was there a bowl in this kitchen..no of course not...no one gets to even know about it..after all there's no one who would scold them..
When I use phone for a while...mom almost tries to kill me and tell me to study right NOW!...
And when she uses and I tell her she is using the phone for a very long time(yes she does)...you know what the reply is:- "I don't have any exams..okay..It's you who has to study..."
