OMG I literally want to bang my head against a brick wall when my parents are in a bad mood or ‘hissy fit’ as I like to call them.
You can’t get a word in edgeways and sometimes you really have to remind them who’s the child in the situation currently staring them in the face. I would like to say that it’s not always right that “you know best when you’re older” ;)
They get so upset over the smallest of things.
Example 1 – It’s raining
My brother who is 12 and struggles to pull himself away from the TV unless food is involved, forgot to clean our dogroom (which yes contains dogs). As luck would have it, it started pouring down with rain and actually pour doesn’t even do it justice, it CRASHED down with rain. Anyway, we called in the dogs and they’re pretty dumb so they just stayed outside and you guessed it, they are soaked! My dad was so annoyed with my brother and I really feel sorry for him being banished to his room.
Example 2 – Cleaning
Again my brother was left to clean the little floor in a room and he accidentally spilt a bit of washing fluid on the carpet. My dad went APE-SHIT, and I mean about to burst with anger. I mean what’s a little bit of washing fluid going to do to the floor. It’ll get cleaned up, I’m not going to worry too much about it.
Example 3 – Christmas Cake
Yes I know it’s early, but we like to feed our christmas cake. Feed I hear you say, yes feed, as in brandy (lucky cake if you ask me). I thought it was going fine and I was pretty happy as it was in the oven, until, CRAP I FORGOT TO TAKE IT OFF THE FAN SETTING. I thought the cake looked a little brown so I ran to turn it down a bit, hoping it wouldn’t be ruined. At the moment the status is “disaster averted” but we’ll see what else this family can mess up today.
Parents really are weird beings and I really am pleased I’m not one yet. What joys I have to come when I have children as odd as me…
