Top 10 Ways to Disappoint Your Parents

The Top Ten

1 Posing Nude On the Internet

This should be number 1, I can't think of a worst way to disappoint your parents than posing nude on the Internet expect maybe being a porn star or a prostitute. - egnomac

My parents would get mad at me if I put any picture of me on the internet. - lovefrombadlands

I did it once and my dad disowned me

Your parents are very protective of you and how others view you as a person... sometimes more than yourself. so why, do some do that knowing they're parents possibly may see them stark naked? It would go like - your name:_____ just posted this picture. In a matter of second half the world and your dad/mum is seeing you in the nude... why bother with clothes at all then?

2 Becoming a Porn Star

My parents already hate me so this is a great way to get disowned

3 Quitting Grad School Before Finishing

15 Staying in Your Room All Day

My dad is always like "Why do you have to go in your room every time your cousins and relatives come over? ".
