Stupid Shit Your Family Does

Our values are sometimes at odds with my own, but they are consistently logical.

I think there are some small things though. My dad used to ask other family members to get the remote control for him when it was less than five feet away.

I don’t know. They’re both consistently smart about what they do. I’m a bit more academic, but I’m the one that ends up doing most of the stupid stuff.

Every night when my parents are in a Raid on WoW, we order dinner from fast food restaurants normally.

I’m not sure. Recording the range of intelligence contained in my family’s waste isn’t really my thing. I would assume they’re all as dumb as any other familial waste.

my family tries to make us read for an hour, every day; which means no tv, no facebook, no games, pure boredom

Now they play the new Star wars RPGMMO. They played Warhammer online, rift, anything that is a MMO that they can play together on. They are a gaming couple.

That actually sounds like a good idea. I imagine it sucks if you don’t want to do it or you have to read something that doesn’t interest you, but I wish my parents had encouraged reading (if not just flat out forcing me to read.)
 
But then again, I’m out of the house, so that’s easy for me to say.

Wow, I thought I was the only one with parents like that.

I asked my father to cash in a check I got on the way home from work tomorrow. He yelled at me because he knew I was going to spend it on a game (Star Wars: The Old Republic for the record). He thinks I shouldn’t be getting more games because I just got 5 for Christmas blahblahblah IT’S MY MONEY DAMMIT. What else is a broke 17 year old living in the midwest gonna buy? Music, maybe? I don’t watch TV, so no DVDs. Books? We have a library down the street.
He does this every time I need money, even if it’s my own freaking money.

Here you go Cite. I think you need this advice.

Edit: I’m saying that you need to slap your father. I’m obviously joking.

Not sure if encouraging me or insulting me….

My mom doesn’t lock, or even fully close door when she uses the bathroom, for anything at all. She says she does it so in an emergency she could get out without having to fumble with the lock, but I really wish she would take the risk of being in the bathroom 1 extra second as the run-ins are always terrible.

Oh don’t even get me started! If I where to wright down every annoyance I had about my family it wouled be longer than all the Harry Potter books put together!

But right now my current annoyance is my Dad useing a Domain Blocker as an “Antivirus Sheild”…
(AKA, an excuse to keep me off websites he thinks I spend way too much time on)

At Mcdonalds, me and my mom are talking about things to bring when she moves out. She says, “I wonder if I should bring my vibrator…”. Like three people hear her and turn.

Same with me. My parents don’t even let me take money out of bank account. They say it’ll help me buy a car or invest into a house someday.

I’m only allowed every second day………………………………….. probably cause one night at a party I drank about eight cans of diet coke. I was up all night.

Jan 24, 2012 at 10:53PM EST

I’m only allowed one soda per week. Floortunately, I have full access to my money and buy lots.
nyeh heh, take that, parents!

Jan 24, 2012 at 10:57PM EST

I was raised on the bosom of soda.
It’s our water in our house hold.

You have a hose hold? I’m jelly.

My parents don’t buy pop. My mom is a health freak, too. So that annoys me. I also got in a shit load of trouble because I had extremely high Bs in 5/8 of my classes last semester, so yeah.

For the longest time, my mother hated having clocks or lamps or mirrors in the house. And wondered why I was always leaving the house late looking like crap? Then I moved out B-)
